Latest Goal

Sunday, June 03, 2012

Had a great goal for entering June and knowing I was so close I waited until weighing in this morning as I really wanted to see me drop that middle number down to the next 10-pound range - and I ended up so close - this morning I ended at the very exact weight I was trying to beat - just wanted to lose 1/10 of a pound more to see the next lower number but I was stuck today with the number ending in a ".0" - oh well, tomorrow should be promising as its the official start of the Mitchell Mens Tennis League and so the tennis season starts for me at 5:30 PM tomorrow - that will do the trick, I'll have to weigh in on Tuesday morning just to get the thrill of seeing that middle number move

In the other news - got a busy week at work while I prepare to take next week off to escort my son and the rest of some 14-15 Boy Scounts to a weeklong summer camp next week

Yep, its that time of year again - and despite the usual, heavy starch, high-carb meals at camp - am hoping that all of the hiking, etc help me drop an extra pound or two while I am there - will certainly help on the fitness front - so its a busy week for me preparing to be gone next weekend (will leave next Sunday and come back the following Saturday) - the brutal thing about these weeks is always the feeling like you need a vacation after being gone a week camping with the Scouts but I know these days won't always be around to spend these times - so no complaints (well, not many anyway)

Thats all I got - still trying to get in lots of steps and miles each day with the FitBit, and excited for the new tennis season - time to see if all of the beatings I took in matches this spring at the hands of a former tennis champion have improved my game to the level that wil get me to excel when I play my usual competition - I am thinking it will...of course, I am an optimist :)

have a great week Sparkfriends

    Yes - I did win tonight - pretty convincingly as well - a younger guy who in the past it would have been an 8-5 or 8-6 score, well tonight I galloped to a 8-3 victory and it was never really in doubt - a great start - I have a match with a talented young man on Wednesday who played some high school and college tennis so that should be worth a pound or two :)
