Watch out, Tennis pro and a yogi in the making LOL. yeeeeaah.
This morning I met Lucy (thirdxacharm) and she drove us over to where our lessons were SUPPOSED to be. Our instructor never showed!! Not sure what happened there. But Lucy's friend was also there for the class, so we all decided to attempt tennis ourselves. let me tell you I think the biggest part of my workout was from cracking up! It was the BEST time. But man, I could give the Williams sisters a run for their money. From hitting the ball (numerous times) OVER the fence almost hitting passerbys and bikers, to COMPLETELY missing the ball, I was a pro. but man, running back and forth across that court is no joke! We had a great time, and the weather was beautiful.
After tennis, I went to starbucks with the Ricardos. I had my favorite - skinny vanilla latte (2 points) sat with them for a bit then off to Yoga!
I get there, and knew the instructor so I made myself go in the front. No hiding from her! Let me tell you, I found muscles I never knew I had. I was horrible at it but I stuck it out the entire hour! And she WORKED us. She slowly moved into positions which I loved and then stayed there going deeper into the move. hooooly cow! Twists and bends and folds! "okay now twist to the left and take your right arm behind you and try to place it on your thigh" ummm I DONT THINK SO! My arms and legs were SHAKING with every movement. After class, my muscles were already feeling it. I talked with her for a bit and she made the comment that she'll get me doing HEADSTANDS in no time...ummm we'll see! But that would be COOL..definitely would look like a pro then.
Once yoga was finished, I went to Trader Joes. I bought another new salad to try, and this one only cost me 2 points!! Reduced fat Greek salad. Delicious and another HUGE one. Yuuuuuum. And got sparkling water. Feelin healthy and happy!
Next stop, hunting down a tennis outfit and another pair of capris. I also want to get arm warmers (is there such thing?) and toe covers (?) for the marathon. TOMORROW IS 20 MILES!!!!!!
No other plans for the day, may go back over to the Ricardos house and bug them for a bit! I am IN LOVE with the weather today!! Warm and sunny. Ahhh. FANTASTIC motivation for summer.
STAY HAPPY AND HEALTHY!!!!! DONT let yourself go BACKWARDS!
