One New Adventure at a Time

Yesterday was filled with activity! After work, I went to my first softball practice. As I mentioned in one of my previous blogs, I have joined in on the office softball team. I haven't hit nor thrown a ball in over a decade. After an hour long practice, I learned that I can't throw very far but I am a decent hitter. I hit about 80 percent of the balls that came my way last night. The balls didn't go far, but at least I hit them!

By attending softball practice last night, I managed to cross an item off of my 25 by 25 list!

21. Try a new workout.

After the softball practice, I felt energized! The gym was on my way home and since I was already dressed in "gym clothes" I decided to stop in. I jogged and walked on the treadmill for about 15 minutes. By the time I was done at the gym it was about 7:30 p.m. I would have stayed at the gym longer, but I really wanted to get home to be with my husband and, who am I kidding, by that time I wanted to eat dinner!

Dinner was a large bowl of spinach with grilled steak and a roma tomato. It was filling and super fresh! My husband also had made stuffed mushrooms, so I had to try one of those. He is an awesome cook and really good at making up his own recipes. He really did a great job with the stuffed mushrooms. I would have ate another one, but I was seriously stuffed from that salad.

For the most part, I am looking forward to the next softball practice we have. The only thing that I didn't like about the practice was that the girls who were at practice were clearly friends outside of work. I felt like an outsider, but it should get better once my friends from work are able to make practice, too. I was really proud of myself for going to practice in a place that I was unfamiliar with and with people that I didn't really even know. Even though this is a "work team" our office building houses about 100 people. In addition to that, I work as a paralegal in the legal office, which is separate from the majority. Needless to say, I don't get out of the office much, therefore, I know less people than most.

We will know when our first game is after a meeting on April 24th. My first 5K is on April 28th and then my first softball game will be the following week. I am very happy with myself for branching out and trying things that I never would have tried 30 pounds ago. I still have 70 more pounds to lose, but I am working my way down; one new adventure at a time!
