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.

mini hiatus

So, I'm taking a mini hiatus from everything. No eating plan, no workout regimen, no schedules. This wasn't thought out--as a matter of fact--it was a very impulsive decision I made yesterday--but now that I'm finished teaching classes at the gym and am also not attending my normal classes at the gym for a little while, I think a little break is in order. I've been having a bit of that "burn-out" feeling lately and I know that all it'll take is a few days off before I MISS IT ALL like CRAZY!
Not to say that I'm not still working out and eating healthy descent. I am...I'm just not going by a set schedule every single minute. On Monday night, my mom was so sweet to watch the kids for me while I went to the gym and did an hour of Zumba and then kickboxing. It felt GREAT and I burned 886 calories according to my HRM. YAY!

Anyway, if you're one of my faithful followers who has been using the eating plans I have been posting and feel "lost" this week...just go back and use the first one I posted again. It's been a few weeks so you should be ready for those dishes again! :o)

So...last but not least, here is a pic I snapped of Matt the other day during P90X Shoulders & Arms. He looked amazing and he never seems to see what I see---so I decided the proof would be in the pix....and it IS! This program works. Period!

If I get a chance to do some "fun" blogging over the next week, I will...but if not, I'll see ya'll all back here on Sunday night for next weeks meal plan!

Oh Jen! If you need a break - you take the break, there is no sense in burning yourself so completely out that you hate everything!

Enjoy your break - and I know you will be back at it soon!!!

You deserve the break!

By the way - wow, Matt looks GREAT!!! Just awesome!!!! I can't believe the changes that come from P90X, it's amazing! I'll have to show you pics of my hubby soon! =)

I think we all get to that point from time to time. Sometimes you just need a few days off, then you are ready to jump back in with both feet.
Rest up, enjoy the break, and we will look forward to hearing from you again next week. :)

WOW! Matts arms are HUGE haha. I wonder how long it would take me to get some guns like that? How many times has he done the full workout program? How much did he weigh when he started vs. now?
