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.

progress report

So, Monday I ate good, lots of salad. I taught 2 fitness classes that night at the gym. 45 minutes of interval step/weights and 45 minutes of hardcore boot camp. It was EXTRA warm in there so everyone left completely SOAKED in sweat! :o)

Tuesday I got up and headed for the gym again to go to Shelley's ball/weights class and then I taught boot camp. I threw in some Insanity moves to up the intensity a bit and it was a great workout. I ate good all day Tuesday because I knew we were going out to Zio's Italian for dinner. I also knew that I had a coupon for a free appetizer and that we would order the Italian Nachos (my FAVORITE). Thankfully, since we were having dinner with some friends, I behaved myself and only ate a "normal" amount of the appetizer instead of hogging it and licking the plate before I let the waiter take it away! ha ha Matt and I shared a thin crust combo (supreme) pizza and I had 2 small slices. Not good by ANY means...but better than I would have done previously. It was my "cheat" day so no biggie.

The proof will be today...a very busy day for me...that I get in a work out AND continue back on my healthy eating. I've already had an inkling to just "throw caution to the wind" and eat something unhealthy...but I resisted the urge. I MUST not let a single cheat day completely change the direction of my path. It's like a speed bump and instead of going over it...I just turn and go down a different road (the road to eating junk again). Ugh! Live and learn, right? :o)

I will (plan to) weigh on Friday and see if the scale shows any progress. Even if it doesn't, I know I've made some VERY good choices over the past week and I'm proud of that. :o)

It's all about progress & you have to think these healthy eating days are doing great things internally (which is hard to comprehend as we don't "see" them like we do the outward inperfections), even if it's followed with a night like last night, which sounds really well done if you ask me:-)

remember its only one day, one day won't make the scale change, but several days in a row will, so stay strong and keep banking those debits (one day of credits-nachos) won't hurt -glad u enjoyed them :)
