It's not about how many times you fall....It's about how many times you get up!

I mean my blog title quite literally....
In true Elizabeth style I fell during my first tennis practice- pretty dramatically and hilariously. And because of some combination of embarrassment and adrenaline I jumped back up, finished practicing, and never realizing how bad I was bleeding until I went to go take a shower.
Besides that minor mishap it was so exciting to be back on the court! I have not played since my sophomore year in high school when I played varsity. It was extremely gratifying to play against the super fit male tennis players and to be able to not only hold my own but to WIN. If only I could be graceful
. But really.
Besides that, this has been a rough week food-wise! I have had so much temptation and events. Aren't the fun times the hardest?! The weekends... that is what is getting me! I will continue to tweak and work on trying to find a healthy balance between having fun and living the healthy life.
Despite that, I had a great weigh-in! One more lb down- 9 total in all!
I finally let my dear boyfriend in on my losing weight plan. He is happy that I am taking such good care of myself. This was a scary conversation to me. Anyone else REALLY hate talking to their SO about weight?! Mostly it is because he has such a great body and has never had the weight struggles that I have had (bless him, I'm so jealous!) I am attaching my most recent full body (well, half body) picture of him and I going out for New Years! This was probably about 14 lbs or so ago.
