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.

Eat this--Not that!



So, like I mentioned in the post I did last night, I am going to start eating from Phase 1 of the P90X Nutrition guide again. When I was eating like this, I was losing about 3 pounds a week for the first couple of weeks and then it slowed, but I was still losing. I feel as though it is my simple black-and-white solution to getting this last 15 pounds off.

I made my grocery list last night and then went shopping first thing this morning. When I got home from the store, I decided to snap a pic of my purchases and then began to purge my pantry and fridge of the JUNK. Do you have ANY idea how hard it is to throw away PERFECTLY GOOD fresh, fabulous, delicious Krispy Kreme doughnuts? O! M! G!
Nevertheless, other than saving one for each kid for an afterschool snack today, they went into the trash! (yes, I know...that is a HORRIBLE snack--but I (foolishly) paid good money for those!)

Do you see the oxymoron in this picture? Krispy Kreme's on the bar just above a countertop laden with fresh produce. It's the battle of my life!
As I was putting away my purchases, I couldn't help but notice that probably 75% of it came from the produce section, 15% from the meat isle and 10% from various other isles. It felt great to see so much FRESH food (not canned, not packaged, not boxed, not frozen). The only bad thing is--is that my veggie and fruit drawers are stuffed full and I hope don't forget what all is in there. Sometimes a week will go by before I discover my avacado at the bottom or my squash in the back. I wish I could somehow lay it all out for display in there so that I when I open the door--BOOM! There it all is. That would really lessen the temptation to grab something unhealthy too. Oh well...
Anyway, I haven't actually written up a "meal plan" for the week just yet, but I plan to sometime today and when I do, I'll post it on here for you guys to see!
Hope you're having a great Monday!

Oh, ha! I forgot I took this pic. This is of me after I did Insanity Max Cardio Conditioning for the first time the other day. It nearly took my life! ;-)
