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
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!
Enjoy the evening!!
