I had a great weekend of working out and I had managed to lose some more weight. But the most important thing about this past week was that my back was feeling 100% better. So only thing left was to do today, was to figure out whether or not I wanted to jump back on the court and give it another try tonight. I was hesitant at first because I didn't want another set back with my back. But my back was feeling great and I didn't want last week's mishap to ruin what could be a great cardio night for me. So I sucked it up and made my way to the court after work was over. This time I made sure to stretch really well before I stepped onto the court tonight.
I was a little winded in the beginning but midway through my first game, I was actually feeling pretty good. And guess what, I ended up scoring 4 points in a game that went to 11 points. Not only was I moving good but I was having a pretty good shooting night as well. I ended up playing 3 very intense games tonight, which added up to about an hour and a half of constant movement. I even received a compliment during the final game of the night. The guy that was guarding me asked why I was so full of energy. And I really didn't notice that I was. I was feeling so good by the last game, that I was out running everyone up and down the court. I didn't want the night to end!
I was happy that I didn't let last week's set back keep me from playing again tonight. Not only did I a get a great night of cardio in but I also weighed in this morning at 230.2 lbs. This brings my official weight loss amount to 71.8 lbs. This also means that I am that much closer to breaking into the 220s. I can't wait for tomorrow morning's weigh-in to get here!
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
