Tennis Lessons


Friday, September 30, 2011

I love tennis. I wish I had started playing back in high school. But I waited until my late 40's to begin. It took a long time to learn the game. I have taken numerous lessons. They tell me that I have to learn to slow down, be consistent, move your feet, keep your eye on the ball, and keep hydrated. I play as much as four days a week and would play more if I did not have to work the other three.

It just occurred to me that these lessons can be applied to weight loss as well. Losing weight slowly is a good thing, you must be consistent with logging food, you have to move your feet every day, keep your eye on the prize, and drink plenty of water.

It is funny how one part of your life can be so closely related to another. I will continue to take tennis lessons to improve my game. Just like I will continue to log into Sparkpeople to learn how to lose weight. And when I lose weight, I will meet two goals...the weight loss, and a better tennis game because I will be lighter on my feet!

    I used to take lessons too. I loved them. And they can count a little bit for exercise too. Yes, when you lose weight, you will be little on your feet and the game will be better. Keep up the great job!
