II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I just keep going and going and going...

Wow, it's almost 11 pm which means I have been up and going strong for 17 hours straight!!! No wonder I am exhausted!! There are a few minutes before "my show" comes on (Designed to Sell on HGTV at 11 pm) so I thought I'd blog. I am SO looking forward to plopping my booty down in my big comfy bed and watching a few minutes of TV before I doze off!
I did just what I wanted to today and got my work all done this morning AND I even went to the high school football field and ran 7 laps around the track (1 and 3/4 miles) in the RAIN while Brooklyn was at gymnastics! WooHoo!! I didn't actually "count" my calories today since I cooked stir-fry for dinner and I didn't know the numbers for everything, but I think it was a pretty healthy meal. I made meatballs out of lean ground turkey and had fresh peppers and onions from our garden in it with bean spouts, sugar snap peas and chunk pineapple all in a teriayki glaze over rice. YUMMMM!!! I did eat a small peice of banana nut bread afterwards too...but hey...I can't deprive myself completely! ha ha.
Tonight I rented a movie for Matt and his dad to watch (Wooly Boys) and I went upstairs and scrapbooked while Grant watched his movie (Elmo goes to Grouchland for the bajillionth time). I got 3 really cute pages done and then had to quit so I could put the kids to bed. Then it was off to the kitchen to do more dishes and clean up the counters. Fun, fun!
Anyway, well, it's 10:57 now, so I guess I will get up from here and make my way to the bedroom so I can get all settled in before my show. I swear every muscle in my body aches from all the extra working out I've been doing but it's bound to pay off eventually. (I've added some machines here lately while I am at the gym---working on abs and obliques).
Good night everyone! Wish me luck. I have to get up at 5:30 am again and try to get another couple of hours of work done before I can go to the gym. boy...it never ends...

Great Job Jen!!!
I envy you getting to run at the track. I have to run on my treadmill and work out here at home...no track or gyms close by (out here in the middle of No-Where!ha). But I did do 3.25 miles yesterday, on the highest incline! Yea! I have also lost another couple of lbs, since I have been getting up at 5:30am and getting my cardio and weight training done first thing in the morning. I also seem to get so much more done throughout the day now. Wow!
Hang in there girl. You will be at your goal, by your birthday, at this rate! :)
