A good lifestyle change
Thursday, March 07, 2013
I have been part of a club sport now for a few months, and it is the greatest thing that has happened to my fitness in a long time. I played badminton in high school (which was 20 years ago), and one day I saw a group of people playing at my gym. It took a while, but I finally asked them if I could play, too. I'm terrible, but it is so. much. fun. I am going twice a week when I'm in town. Tonight I felt like I did after practice in high school, completely exhausted from having school all day and practice all evening and homework and everything else. I could barely eat -- I thought I'd fall asleep in my plate. It was wonderful.
I was tired during our games tonight, but I wonder if that's because my body is exhausted, or because I had a chocolate-covered graham cracker as a snack? I will try to lay off those in the future.
I'm just so excited to have this group... I feel accountable for being there, and because I'm so terrible, they push me really hard. Sports rule.
