Week one is complete. Things went well, though I only had 3 games this week. Kept up with all my workouts, except Saturday (10:00 game-need to arrive 30 min before-and 40 minute drive). I had planned to go after the game, but it was freezing (it snowed during) and when I got home I just wanted to get warm. I'm not thrilled with myself over that, but I have to look at the other positives I can take away from the week. For instance, ditching the energy drinks/bars and replacing them with healthy snacks: walnuts/craisins before came (100 cal) and either apple & peanut butter or pear and reduced fat string cheese for post game. This is important to make sure I'm not beyond hungry when I get home since its after 6 and I normally eat dinner right at 5:00. My body was much better prepared to accept the physical demands of umpiring and thus my recovery time was much shorter, and didn't impede my workouts the day after. The logistics of making sure the boys (my grandsons that I babysit daily) are looked after so that I can get to my games on time has still been a bit stressful due to my dil's mother having to care for her father (she was my relief plan) but, hopefully that will resolve itself shortly. Overall, it was a good week, wish the weather her would be more cooperative and springlike but I'm excited for the season to get in full swing! I know the extra activity will help with my weight loss.
