I weighed in this morning for Week 2 of WW online. I did ok, I lost another lb., so that's 3 lbs. in 2 weeks. I'm good with this. My goal is to loose 4 lbs. a month for a total of 12 by the end of April. This will get me below my WW goal.
DD#2 had a 7:30 game yesterday, so DH and I were going to run when I got off work. DH had the baked ziti started when I got home and I just had to assemble and put in the oven. DD#2 was going to take it out of the oven while we were gone. I got everything ready, preheated the oven and then went to get dressed to run. I came back in the kitchen and the oven wasn't even warm! Fortunately my parents live next door (on our 12 acre property), so we dropped the ziti off at their house to bake while we went running!
Since we didn't have a whole lot of time, I was going to do the 1 min. walk/4 min. jog (6 times). I expected it to be hard since it's been over a week since I've even exercised. We ran on one of the flat trails and it was really nice to be outside. It was harder than I thought it would be! I was really, really slow. I miscalculated where to turn around and I ended up doing the 1/4 (7 times) and got in a good 40 mins. and 2.9 miles of walking/jogging (like I mentioned, I was slow!).
As soon as we got home, DH had to shower and take DD#2 back to the high school. I had just enough time to get the ziti, shower and eat before going to the game.
DD#2 had the worst game of the year! It was really bad, which was unfortunate because they've' been playing so well. This team has beaten them 3 times before, but each game was pretty close. They blew them out last night. DD#2's team could only score 4 pts. This team had their "number". They really shook them up and then proceeded to "crush" them. DD#2 ended up not playing at all in the 4th quarter. She was doing pretty good defensively (considering), but her offense really stunk. She missed 4 free throws! I guess the coach figured she might as well play the other 2 girls in DD#2's position, because the 2 starters weren't doing anything (the other 2 girls didn't score either and their defense wasn't as good as DD#2's).
Anyway, she was really angry and disappointed in herself and ended up crying the whole way home (very unusual for her). I felt so bad for her and tried to talk to her, but she just wanted to be left alone. She was able to talk about it this morning. I told her she's got to learn to "bounce back" and "shake it off" (her attitude stunk at the game which is also unusual for her). The mental part of the game is hard (especially for a hormonal 14 year old!). This was supposed to be their last game, but they have another one on Saturday with the private school (that they beat). Hopefully they'll play better and end the year with a win!
They don't have practice tonight (which they should, but I could go on and on about the coach), but DD#2 wants to run - I'm proud she's not just "throwing in the towel" after last night (did I mention it was bad!). I wasn't planning to run, but I'll drop DD#1 off at work and drop DD#2 off at the gym and I'll run on the trail. It's supposed to rain the next 2 days, so I want to run outside today.
I'm hoping my Coach Nicole DVD comes in. I want to do that tomorrow & Saturday, take Friday off and run again on Sunday.
Sorry for the sports rants & cliches, but I really felt bad about the game and DD#2 being so upset - I couldn't even sleep last night!
Looking forward to another good "week"!
