Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

life may now resume as previously scheduled...

Now that I've had a little break from the norm, I'm ready to get back onto my schedules and get serious!

#1-P90X and Insanity workouts start again today. This would be like starting week 3 or Day 15 if we were keeping "count", but we're not. Today's workout is Legs & Back and Ab Ripper which I plan to do this morning since I have homeroom mom duties in Grant's class today (Valentine Party) and have to be showered and cutsied up by 1:30 pm.

#2-Eating clean starts again....tomorrow! Ha! It would be today except that I bought all the ingredients to make lasagna and had planned to make it last night...but we ended up eating Superbowl snack foods and didn't want a big I'm making it tonight. It is most definitely NOT on the "diet" this will be our last hoo-rah before it's back to lean and green!

#3-Demi sent me a sample packet of chocolate Shakeology and I can NOT WAIT to try it!! I am waiting, however, because I want my hubby to get to taste it too, which means I have to drink it in the evening. I figure I'll have it for "dinner" tomorrow night since Tuesday's are a busy night for me anyway. I will DEFINITELY let you guys know what I think about it! If it lives up to all the hype I've been hearing about reducing appetite and increasing energy (among many other awesome things), then I will be SOLD!

#4-I didn't make any real new years resolutions this year...but I am thinking it would be beneficial to sit down and write out some goals for myself. Without something to hope for...or look forward to, I just kind of wander aimlessly with no destination in clear view. Not only do I want to achieve some very speficial physical goals in the coming months...but even more importantly, I want to see some changes on the inside of me. I want to seek God more than ever before. No more reading books--just the Word, the whole Word and nothin' but the Word! Not that there is ANYTHING wrong with books..I love them...especially Andrew Wommack, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, Mark Gorman...etc. BUT...I think I've gotten so wrapped up in all these different peoples revelations and ideas that I've got myself thinking there is some kind of equation that I'm missing in order to have the abundant life Jesus came to give us. Just like being physically healthy is simple: You have to exercise and eat right; To be spiritually healthy you really only need 2 things two: The Bible and prayer.
Time for me to get back to the basics!

So there you have it peeps! That's what's floating around in my mind this morning. I hope you are all doing well and pushing play?! Leave me a comment or send me an e-mail if you need some encouragement or a kick in the tush. I'm here as your coach to give ya whatcha need!

Ps. I'm trying to decide if I should keep posting the meal plans. If you care to see them/use them/read them...let me know!

Hey there! Glad to hear you're doing some P90X and Insanity! I did plyo X today and I'm going to do an Insanity workout too. I was supposed to run 10 miles and the snow is a mess, so that's my substitution. Hopefully I won't need to sleep the rest of the day then! Hope you enjoyed your break! I need those sometimes too!

OMG I can't believe you never had Shakeology yet! I love it! Especially the chocolate one but it taste a lot better with some soy milk mixed in. My fave combo is soy milk, half a banana and half a tbs of nut butter. It's like dessert!

So glad you're back! But I'm also glad for you that you took a break. Sometimes that's the best thing to do.

I enjoy the meal plans but I also know how much work goes into them. Don't feel pressured to do them if you start to feel overwhelmed. If you're anything like me (and you are!) then just not posting on my blog makes me feel guilty...can't imagine feeling obligated to write up a meal plan every week too. Do it if you can but don't worry about it if you can't. Or maybe just post when you try a new recipe or something you think others would like to try instead of a full-fledged meal plan??? Just a suggestion.

I love you, my friend!
