No gross feet pic today because 193.0 and I'm ticked. I know T.O.M. just left but seeing that number inch closer and closer back to "that" awful number again is just too overwhelming.
I know my eating hasn't been all that consistent lately. I've been staying under my calories but it has to just be coming down to "what" I've been eating. I've got to try to get a handle on things again. We've had 3 birthdays back to back and surprisingly, everytime we've gone to birthday dinners out to eat, I've kept that in check. (Eating mainly baked fish, rotisserie chicken or the like). So maybe it's the amount that I'm eating? And/or the beer and the handful of nutter butters? Maybe. I'm not sure. I'm burning a butt ton of calories but the weight is not dropping. I'm going to a free nutrition class that the YMCA is putting on tonight to see if I can get some ideas. My body does not want to leave size 16-ville apparently.
In other news, I've been really kicking it up a notch with the exercise. I've been consistent with getting at least an hour in of walks each work day and played tennis 4 times last week. Running, not so much, but I did get one run in Monday and hoping for at least 2 more this week so I can get back to that regularly too.
We've been pretty busy lately and I haven't had a chance to do the weekly update/weekend roundup so that will all just be lumped in here. Or the Tennis Tuesday. Last week I did opt for 2 rest days but got plenty of other stuff in on the non-rest days. The extra men on each day are usually my 3 walks while at work. I've been logging them separately instead of lumping the time together. I'm actually a little confused because my garmin and endomondo have been double dipping when it gets lumped into My Fitness Pal. I've had to go in and edit duplicates out of both Garmin and MFP lately. So I'm thinking that I may need to drop endomondo which sucks greatly because I love the little charts (like the one above). Plus with the HRM, the garmin just is a lot more accurate I think. Endomondo and MFP greatly over-estimates calorie burn.
Tennis has been pretty awesome lately. I can tell I'm improving but I do still freeze up in game situations. Practice and drills, I'm so there, but in games. plbtplbtplbtplbt. Last week we had Drill and Play on Tuesday, Volley Clinic on Thursday (we learned high volleys and did a really fast drill like I think they do at cardio tennis). Friday was the Member Appreciation event and I'm really glad I got out of my comfort zone and went. Although, there weren't too many people my level, and I ended up at the "kids" court. LOL I think it's the tennis equivalent of the kids table. Some of these kids are ruthless though. Saturday, Chris joined me for Doubles clinic and then we ended up playing a bit of a real match with these older ladies. So the game situation went in my normal fashion, which was terrible. We lost 6-2.
|Chris really did hit the lady, but fortunately wasn't banned. It was an accident and hey she didn't get her racquet up in time!|
In other news, I get to hang out with my Dad today! Taking him to go see Hercules for another of his birthday presents! Should be fun.
Although I'm really looking forward to this weekend! I'm so pumped for Guardians of the Galaxy!
If you weighed in today, how did you do this week? Who is going to see Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend?
