Wow, this summer and this year are flying by. I had no idea that the last time I posted was the end of May!! Between family camping trips, multiple baby blessings, the 4th of July and tons of family get togethers and birthday parties and making and taste testing wedding cake life has been a little crazy.
In the midst of all of that I have been trying to find new ways to be healthy. I have been getting bored with the same old workout videos and was struggling to be motivated to workout so I have been on the search. I used to play basketball, a lot of basketball. But the past few years have mostly been playing volleyball. Well a friend invited me to come join a weekly pick up game with other women and even though I was really nervous I have been loving it! It has been so fun to be playing again, even if I am a little rusty. And even though the first week I thought I was going to die! I was sucking gas so bad!! I played a lot better than I thought I would but oh man. Working out at home is a lot different than sprinting up and down the basketball court. But it has been fun. Some weeks I just feel off but some weeks I have been pretty happy with how I have done. Some of the other women’s highschoolers and their friends have been coming this summer. This last week there was a 6’1″ girl who probably had at least 30 pounds, if not more on me. It was tough, she could shoot extremely well from down low all the way out to the 3 point line. It was fun though to have to play a little rough and my bring out my competitiveness a little bit more! Mentally and physically it has been just what I needed!
I have also felt like I was in a funk with this blog. I have been struggling to know what to write and maybe just over thinking the whole thing. But I am going to make a better effort here too! I have missed this and missed you all!
