Lessons From The Basketball Court

We hung out at my nieces basketball tournament this weekend. I used to play basketball back in the day, so it was really fun to watch their team play! I wanted to get out there so bad!!!  I miss those days for sure. It truly felt like a full circle moment…  I remember all of the tips my dad would tell me after the game… “take more shots… don’t pass the ball so much… be aggressive… keep your eye on the goal… have more confidence in yourself… etc!” It’s funny how time and experience teach you things… If I had only known back then what I know now… I wish I would have believed in myself MORE!

In between games, I took the boys to lunch at the mall and I stopped by the Apple Store to charge up the phone. :)

While we were there, my youngest son called me on FaceTime from a display phone… Haha… I was wondering who was calling me because I didn’t recognize the number… this is what I saw when I answered the phone….

Torry finished working in time to meet us for the second game!  Thanks to Courtney and his mad skillz, we got ONE winning picture out of many other disastrous ones that are safely in the “trash can” of this computer…. 😉

I have been having technical difficulties all weekend with my phone. At some point on Saturday, my dietSNAPS App got deleted from my phone. I don’t know how it happened, but I lost everything from Friday and Saturday… It’s crazy how much I rely on that app and it’s so hard to remember what I ate…. I know it’s sounds like “the dog ate my homework….” but I’m serious… I can’t remember!!!!  Overall, my weekend was “okay”…. I’ll just leave it at that!

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!

    It’s funny looking back…I thought you exuded confidence for a teenage girl. You were awesome on the court and such a pleasure to watch. You have taught me so much over your lifetime! tq

    who approved that group picture??? I look like I’m half asleep or ready to pass out..hahaha! Surely that wasn’t THE best one out of that bunch?! Thank y’all for coming out and supporting Devyn! It really meant a lot to her. 😉 And I wish I could go back now too knowing what I know… things would be different.
