Final Night of League…

Last night was my final night for this year’s league.  They have one more week that I won’t be able to attend, which is sad, because I have some award money coming that I won’t be able to pick up myself.  Oh well, not much I can do about that.

My final night was a great night, but had a bittersweetness to it.  I bowled my best 3 game series ever: 238, 220, 221 for a 679.  Going into the last game, I had a decent chance to get a 700 series.  I missed two single pin spares (had made all others the rest of the night).  If I had made those, I would have had a 245 and my 700.  So, while it was my best three games in league, it could have and should have been better.

Overall, I’m pleased with the final 9 weeks of this league.  Since I had my last lesson, I’ve averaged over 200 and raised my league average from 182 to 188 which is significant this late in the season.

I won’t bowl in any league this summer, but will commit to practicing at least once a week to maintain what I’ve learned and even try to tweak some minor adjustments.  I’m not sure if I’ll keep a regular blog, but if anything significant happens, I’m sure I’ll pass it along.

Under 200!!! Finally!

This morning, I woke up, put in my contacts, and did my official weekly weigh in… 199.8!  For the first time since sophomore year in college, I’m under 200 lbs.  I know it is just barely under and weight can fluctuate but to see a number on the scale that doesn’t start with a 2 is a pretty good feeling!

Resolution Update

The beginning of a new month, time for a resolution update:

  • Daily Devotional – I don’t think I missed a day this month, but did have to do two one day to catch up for a missed Sunday.  I still rushed on a few, but overall this is becoming a part of my daily routine.
  • Bowling – The blog was consistent and the 300 game trumps all. 🙂
  • Weight – Came in at 202.4 this morning, so no real loss.  I’ve been pretty good with the Wii Fit but have found a number of limitations.  I’d like to have a more structured workout so I need to look into other inexpensive options.

This month, I’ll give myself a B+.  Since I didn’t lose any weight this month, or reach my goal of 200 I can’t give myself the A quite yet.
