Cardio: 20 min on elliptical, 4 miles on Huckleberry Trail (mostly running, but not all). Took Trixie -- she was A-mazing. That obedience class has really paid off (thanks, Robert!)

Strength Training: 60 packed minutes with Jake, need to get in two workouts this week.

Stretching: did it at the gym

Tennis: none; but came to the realization that Bill was explaining that to get spin I need to cock my wrist and think about accelerating up with a closed racquet and not forward with an open one. Anxious to try this. Need to use legs to propel ball up.

Food: So far so good but we have a neighborhood party tonight. Jake said to drink a bunch of water before I go. I made black bean salsa...beans are higher in calories than I thought; a cup is 220 calories. Addendum: not good at the party...not good at all. I'm just a sucker for anything with artichokes and there it was...artichoke and crab dip in the most beautiful carved out bread bowl. Need I say more? Back on the wagon. Sigh.

Other: Jake suggested I might think about a goal to shoot for like a race of sorts or something. I'll have to ruminate on that one! I'm thinking....I am!
