My motto for the next 8 weeks

My motto for the next 8 weeks

Today I did the WOD for the next Whole Life Challenge. Tired after a night shift,  I went to CrossFit Progression at 10 AM to complete the WLC WOD. The WLC is a lifestyle game that requires one to eat clean, my healthy lifestyle choices including exercise. One records their score for the day on a point system. One loses points for eating unhealthy items not on the accepted list. One gets a point for exercise, mobility, supplement, and completing each healthy lifestyle activity. The final score is based on points, improvement in body measurements, and WOD score improvement. One competes against others in their box (gym) and ultimately against oneself.   For more info on the Whole Life Challenge go to https://www.wholelifechallenge.com/how_it_works

Next I went to the Rochester Athletic Club (RAC) and went 1x through my upper body strength circuit. Next I went to my first day of tennis lessons. I went with my $15 dollar racquet I got a few years ago at Wal-Mart. I found out that I was the only person in the class. Individual lessons-cool! The last time I played tennis was in one of my phy ed skills classes in college-a while ago. Learned forehand and backhand and how to put spin on the ball. The RAC is known for its tennis programs so I feel good about my choice. It was fun, but I still need a lot of work before I can play in a league.

My day ended as a soccer official (AR) for a girls varsity game. It was a good game to practice and improve my skills. Got a workout running up and down the sidelines. The hardest part of the game was driving the 20 miles back home in the dark, on a one lane highway, and with little sleep. It was, the longest I had driven since last December. Made it home safe. Do you think I slept well that night?
