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.

Day 15 & 16

Yesterday (Monday) was Day 15 and the first day of my meal plan (in previous post). Everything went great! I did Chest & Back right before I had to pick the kids up from school so I kept the TV (in the workout room) paused on Ab Ripper so I could complete it when I got home. uhhh...yah...I really meant to. The problem is that we workout upstairs....and I never went back up stairs yesterday so I HONESTLY completely forgot all about Ab Ripper. Bummer! I wanted to do it to!
Anyway, I ate all the food on my "plan" yesterday and not a bite more or less. I actually ended up having my afternoon snack after dinner because we ate dinner very early yesterday and then I was hungry at around 7:30 and I hadn't had my 2nd snack, so I had it then (which it was a banana and 10 almonds).
We even went to Braums last night for ice cream and I had NOTHING. :o) yay!

Today (Tuesday) is Day 16 and I went to a pump/ball class at the gym and then taught my boot camp class. Tried something a little new today and I think it worked. We split up into 2 groups and while one group was doing a circuit on the floor, the other group did a circuit using the step and then we switched. (40 minute intervals followed by 20 seconds recovery). I thought it was a lot of fun and nice to do something different for a change--plus a GREAT workout!
Anyway, that's my workout for today. I just finished my lunch (oops! eating late! it's 2:37 right now) and it was SOOO good! Wow, I forgot how much I liked tuna! I never sounds good when I think of it...but I don't think I've ever put it in my mouth and NOT enjoyed it. Today I mixed it up with just a teensy bit of light mayo, a drop of dijon mustard and a glob of dill relish and sprinkled with pepper. Then I toasted a slice of light whole wheat bread and put the tuna on top and then topped that with shredded romaine and ate it with a fork. YUM! I also ate my sliced apple with it (instead of chips) and that was the perfect sweet crunch alternating between my sour/salty tuna bites. YUMMO!
I'm excited that tonight I get to relax in my clean house (cleaned Friday and again today) while the yard is beautifully mowed (mowed yesterday) and eat the dinner that I've already prepared (this afternoon-taco soup) and watch a movie I've been waiting to see for like SIX MONTHS! It's "Letters to Juliet" and I've heard wonderful things about it. I can't wait to see it--and to RELAX!

You're motivating me to get back on track with something structured; whether it's P90X or some other plan. I continue to look forward to your updates. Keep up the good work! BTW-Our weekend's church message was around Transformation & a good way to think of our walk with Christ as well as the smaller stuff in life like getting in shape or leading a healthier lifestyle; it's about transforming, not being or trying to become perfect. You go girl:-)

OK - this is me checking in on you b/c I definitely don't want you to feel the way I've been feeling lately - ignored :) lol You're right - I do think "Jen's got this under control - just look at her!" But I also know that each day is a battle and we need to put our game face on every morning we wake up because even though yesterday we may have had the oomph to get past the hurdles, who knows what today may bring. I hope you have a good day today and stick to your plan. Keep your eye on the prize girlie!
