Tennis, Anyone?

I'm feeling more in control of my emotions today than I have the last few days. I also learned last night that high quantities of salt are a food trigger for me. We went to Applebees and I got the WW French Onion Soup (which is fantastic) and a Bruschetta burger with fries. I didn't finish my fries, but everything was SOOO salty. As soon as we left I HAD to go to CVS and get a diet coke and ...well a Hershey Bar. I was possessed. I felt it...the craving was so bad. So it goes.

I can tell the high amount of salt also in my bloated face last night at bed. And the fact that the scale says I had gained 5 lbs during the day. This is birthday week for me, so eating out will be more frequent, but I know now not to order such salty things!

This morning, dearest K and I took a tennis lesson together! It was a lot of fun (especially since I'm a bit better than he is ;) ). At first K griped about not wanting to do it, but it was free and he decided that it was a fun thing to do together. I think it exhausts him, all the things I want to do, all the time. So basically the fitness center is running a 4 week free class for learning tennis. It's an hour and a half each week. The best thing. Our class only has 5 people in it including us, so we get a lot of attention. One of the couples had to leave early and aren't going to make a lesson so it will be like a semi private lesson :) FOR FREE! YIPPEE! Why more people aren't taking advantage, I'll never know!

Kids have a birthday party today and tonight is my first dinner of birthday week. I don't like the fact that I'm getting older. I know it's a part of life, but I wish I could have stayed 26 for my entire life!

  1. Great to be able to identify a trigger, like the salt. That weight gain will go fast when you cut it out and drink gobs os water for a few days.

    Tennis is awesome! I've played a lot over the years. Good exercise, and makes us be with other people. Sounds like your energy level is great.
