Been even a longer while.... :oops: :oops: :oops:

My last back injury has made me reevaluate bodybuilding, and I have rediscovered soccer which was my favourite sport growing up.
I found a new ankle brace which stabilizes the joint enough to allow me to play indoors (the even surface is a must)

Not a fair comparison but on the last World Cup rosters, guys my height ( 6'3.5") all weighed in around 190 lbs.
My 44 yr old body tips the scales at 230 lbs.

My challenge is to get down to 210 by Dec 31st.
I think that is a reasonable goal weight (I don't want to be a stick either)

Stay tuned.... this creaky body is going to go through some serious cardio :wink:

AWesome game last night!!
we lost, but hey , it was fun!!!! :D

It is soooo uplifting to discover that at 44 , I can still compete evenly with
the 20 year olds.
I've been cleaning the diet up over the last week and will start regular workouts today. First weigh in will be this weekend.

It will be great to lose the weight but I am EXTREMELY hesitant to lose muscle mass. Time will tell..... I'm just going to go by how my body feels.

Been concentrating on body weight exercises this week.
squats, incline pushups, tricep dips, planks.
Only had one short run this week since my game on Tuesday.
Should get another in on Saturday.

Weigh in on Sunday!!! That fraction of a second increase in speed will no doubt result in a few goals! :roll:

Whooo Hoooo!!!
:bodybuilding:

The weigh in results for week one are in:........ lost 6 pounds!!!!!
Didn't expect that much, but I'm not arguing :wink:

Added yoga to my workouts. I quite often practice with my daughter (who is quite amused at my lack of flexibility)

Soccer game on Tuesday night at 11:15 pm ...Oh man!!!!!!!
I'm going to be VERY tired on Wednesday.

just did some light stretching yesterday. Saving my energy for the big game tonight :roll:

For some reason my appetite today has been voracious!
I'm going to have to put in extra effort to work off these calories!

A truly embarassing performance last night. We were THROTTLED 9-2.
Our regular GK wasn't there, and we played against a young team which just ran and ran and ran all night!

Oh well, I still had fun. It was a great workout! Got 2 assists and a super workout. Not all bad!

I definitely have to do some windsprints.
Feeling pretty good today so looks like weights and yoga tonight.

:oops: JW was lazy last night!
ended up watching a couple episodes of Lost and "lost track of time" :roll:

this morning I did some yoga,
2x15 incline pushups
2x12 dips
2x8 curls with dumbells.

tonight I'm blowing the dust off of the NordicTrack for a 25 min session.
I have to build on that 6lbs I lost last week.

Not a great workout weekend.

yoga on saturday and sunday.
went for a run and
did some intervals on Saturday morning but I became very wheezy after.
might have to look into an inhaler if this continues :?
(it was my first run in cold weather this year...hopefully it won't happen again ( the wheezing I mean! :wink: )

Sunday was a disaster as the Grey Cup (Canadian equivalent of the Superbowl) was held in Winnipeg.
I went to the game and a party so the day was pretty much shot.

tonight it's weights
tomorrow is another soccer game :D :fball: :D
I have to get back on track for my next weigh-in (next Sunday)

AAARRRRRGGGGHH!!!
lost 3-0 last night.
I played forward for the first time this year.
I must have gotten at least 8 shots on goal but they just don't want to go in!!!
Great workout though!
My legs felt like jelly after the game.

As frustrating as my scoring drought is, I'm still hoplessly addicted! :D
