Softball season here again!

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

I just got back from my first practice of the season - yes, it's softball, and no, that's not my team above emoticon

I thought the treadmill and jumping rope would prepare me -but NOOOOOOO! I thought I was going to throw up out in left field - it's a co-ed team at my church and the guys were pummeling the ball. The great thing is that I was wearing my heart rate monitor and I forgot to turn it on the first 20 minutes, but I burned 472 calories in the last 42 minutes - so it was worth it!! I can't wait for the next practice!

Anyway, it's been a while since I posted and things are moving slow - but they are steady so I am happy with that. Since it is taking time, it's really been much easier to gradually change my way of eating. Before, I might stay under my calories, but I wasn't eating enough veggies and fruits - now I have them with EVERY meal or I feel that I am missing out. My favorite is breakfast - I have 2 eggs a cup of spinach, a large mushroom, bell peppers and onions, every once in a while I will add a piece of bacon and YUM that is so good and filling and I am getting in a ton of veggies.

Well, I am already starting to get a little sore - yowza! I'm a little nervous about tomorrow - so I'd better go stretch before I get stiff! emoticon emoticon

Enjoy the evening!!

    I was thinking about joining the softball league at my church but after reading this, I think not. I think you probably weight at least 100 pounds less than I do.. so.. that's out! :) Sounds fun though and I Hope you enjoy it!

    Sounds like fun, I know my daughter misses softball this year. Probably not as much as I miss watching her play though. Good Luck!!!
