The Land of Fernieville

I played with myself today

So my friend was visiting from UVa and mentioned that after quals he lost 25lbs in 3 weeks by eating 1 sub a day and playing basketball…never mind his crazy antics. But it made me think about at least one thing: Basketball. I like basketball, and I’m fairly good at it. And lo and behold, there is a court right here in our complex in addition to tennis, pool, weights and volleyball. I’m an idiot if I don’t take advantage. So I played basketball, for 30-40 minutes and though I was totally out of shape, I had a blast playing with myself. Yes, it was just me on the court then my hubby’s son joined me at the end. Poor guy lost to a 30yo overweight mother-of-2 on a pick up game to his stepmother. Good thing his friends weren’t looking. But to his credit he’s good at other things, just not sports… so it wasn’t a fair fight for I played sports all my life up to around 4 years ago (baby).

Anyhow, so my little game was I’d try, not very hard, to make a basket as if under pressure, and if I didn’t make it I’d run to the other side and try to make it there. Eventually I’d try a little harder and make the basket and then rest a while by shooting baskets calmly. I did that some 5 times and it was fun knowing I could still dribble the ball, shoot a basket and run down the court.

Again, CalorieKing gives us the run down.
