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 3

Today was Shoulders & Arms......and I just wanna say that I LOVE THAT WORKOUT! It has to be one of my very favorites. No push ups! No jumping! No pull ups! Woohoo! Plus, I LOVE the intense burn I get in my entire upper body from that routine! Mmmm-hmmmm!! Good Stuff!

I'll admit, I didn't get Ab Ripper done and my excuse is lame. Basically I waited until too late in the day and ran out of time. By the time I was about to do it, I knew that if I did...there was NO WAY I was going to be able to get showered and ready and make it to our dinner reservations at 6 I just had to say "oh well" this time. If it counts any...I did a lot of abs yesterday and my body probably needed a break anyway. :-)

Tonight we took our daughter on a very fancy date to a super nice restaurant. I tried to order smart, but who really knows!?! I got the Lite Filet Mignon. It was 4 or 6 oz. I believe. TINY. Haha Matt got the Ribeye and it looked gigantic next to my little chunck of meat! We shared some pototoes and asparagus as our sides. We had planned on getting a dessert to share (the 3 of us) since this was a special occasion for Brooklyn...but we ended up being too full and didn't get one afterall, so that was good.
Later on though at home, I had a 100% fruit grape popsicle.

The rest of the day eating was good. I had a 1 slice of wheat toast with 1 turkey sausage for breakfast with my coffee.
For lunch I made an AMAZING salad. It had romaine lettuce, sliced grapes, walnuts, grilled chicken, diced avacado, croutons and light sweet spicy French dressing. It was the BOMB! ha ha

I didn't do GREAT on eating today, but I know for a FACT that I did a lot better than I would "normally"...I mean FORMERLY do!

Tomorrow I can get back to strict P90X eating again and I'm actually looking forward to it because, crazy as it is, I feel like I'm already starting to shape up again and that is SO encouraging!

I hope you're doing well with your fitness/health journey! How about you jot me a note and let me know you are reading!?!? Thanks!

Here are a few pix from tonight I thought I'd share with you, even though they have nothing to do with fitness: This first one is of me and my daughter, Brooklyn after our fancy-schmancy dinner date!
This one is of me and Matt trying on some masks at Pier 1. Fun!
