My consolation for the week: a hard fought (albeit lost) tennis match. I was playing with Kathleen for the first time in the first line doubles (that means of our three doubles teams, we were deemed the best). In our first set, we lost 1-6. I think we were down 0-2, then we won to bring it to 1-2, and then they won the next four games (a set is first to 6 by two, for tennis newbies). In the second set, it was looking a lot better. Though we were down 3-1, we brought it to 4-4, then we tied up at 5-5, and eventually lost 5-7. Matches are generally played best two out of three (our league is a wee bit different, in that you don’t play a 3rd set, but rather a tie-breaker, but that was not necessary as we lost the first two sets).
Still, the match felt GOOD. Granted I wasn’t hitting the best, and my nerves got the best of me in the first set, we really gave these ladies a run for their money and made them work for that second set. I feel if we could have just pulled out that 2nd set, we could have won in the tie breaker.
My desolation for the week: Hmmm. I’ll have to go with not tracking my calories. I mentioned in an earlier post that I have been eating healthier, but that tracking when I’m so incredibly busy is more difficult. I go back to the nutritionist on Tuesday and won’t have much to show her for the past week in terms of nutrition.
