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.

Picking up the pace...

Well, I've been working out more lately and I'm so glad. Even though I'm not doing NEARLY as much as I once was, working out only once a week was not a good thing either. No exercise = grumpy Jen. Blah!
So, yesterday I did CardioX from P90X and today I got up and went to an hour-long Zumba class at the gym. On Monday night, Matt and I lifted weights together for about half an hour. It felt great and DUDE! He's looking GREAT! Here are some pix I snapped of him that he'd probably kill me for putting on here if he knew (Mr. Modesty)...but since he VERY rarely looks at my blog, I can probably get away with it! :o)It's really very UNJUST cool how easy he stays in tip-top shape. I mean...not to say he doesn't work at it ...but...he DEFINITELY doesn't stress about everything he eats and if he goes 2 or 3 weeks between workouts, it's NO big deal. I have to remind myself that he has a very active job though and I'm sure that helps a lot.
Anyway, I'm not losing any weight...staying at around 140...but that's alright. I'm upping my workouts and being a LITTLE more conscience of what I'm eating, so I'm cool wit it. :o)

How about you? How're you guys doing? Anybody thinking about trying TurboFire?

hey there. matt looks great - kudos to him! why is it always easier for the men? different body chemistries i suppose. don't get me wrong; i know he's worked his arse off for it, same as my T. they just seem so much easier to commit to something whether it's working out, eating better, etc. I know T is way less likely to cheat (or beat himself up about it when he does) than I am.

I have no strict workout routine other than I must workout 6 days a week for 45mins-1 hour. Doesn't matter what it is, but I MUST get in some sort of activity. I do about 3 heavy days a week (usually bag workouts or a run) then the other workouts are things like step aerobic, power yoga, or dance.

and, of course, following WW and tracking everything I eat
