Rough night, good day!

Woke up at 3 am to discover a TICK on me. YUCK!!!! Then couldn't sleep and was so hungry. Added a granola bar to yesterday's log. I worked a bit then tried to sleep a little more. Big day of summer orientation and a meeting for course planning for next year.

Exercise: Did a 3 mile road loop today. That is HUGE for me. And I jogged 75 - 80% of that...all but the really bad hills (Plank Road). I did that while the kids played tennis. Then an hour later, I played in a 90 minute tennis clinic. It was fun, and I had some good moments, but my body and legs were tired. It's early to bed tonight!

Food: Doing well here. I keep thinking of Sharon's BLT term from Weight Watchers (Bites, Licks, Tastes) and am avoiding those while making smart choices, drinking water, eating regular meals and snacks as needed. I'm just eating less and smarter. I really think that THE one thing that makes the biggest differences is sticking to eating at least one fruit a day, and eating only fruits, veggies, and the occasional small number of nuts, for snacks. And I'm logging my food on SparkPeople.

Stretching: Doh! Keep forgetting. I did stretch out my legs today before running. Why do I keep forgetting the rest? That will be a priority for tomorrow!

Off to the shower! Need to rest for more tennis tomorrow!!
