I am glad it is Friday. I haven't gotten that much done this week after the strength workout dvd I did 2 days ago. I did way too many squats and plies while working my upper body with 2 pound weights. Why did I do that? I know I suffer after doing squats. Every time I try to do them the results are the same. Why would I think this time would be different? emoticon

I strive to exercise like I used to exercise when I was young. Ambitious? Unreal? Or just plain hard headed?? I would love to get out on the soccer field and play women's soccer again. I even saw in an advertisement that they are starting up in March. I so want to play! I really miss it. I haven't played since 1995 when I had my first bunion surgery. My ex-husband didn't want me to play anymore, because his insurance paid for my surgery. I had also chipped my finger playing goalie and he didn't want me getting hurt. (I think he was jealous that I wanted to be healthy and hang out with my friends.) Anyway, that was years ago...going on 20 years since I played soccer. I loved the feeling of running across the field and getting the ball away from the other team. In the goal I loved to fight for the ball and block goals. emoticon emoticon

My partial knee replacement 3 years ago makes me think I will never play soccer again. I just don't know what I would do if I hurt my left knee or the right that hasn't had surgery. emoticon

The other complicating factor is that the games are on Sunday afternoon. I go to church on Sunday afternoon. I co-teach a primary class and wouldn't be able to miss it. I love teaching in the primary and I love the co-teaching even better! Last time I taught I had a class by myself. Every week I had to prepare a lesson and get things ready for enrichment activities. Now it is only every other week. The co-teaching is also good, because my co-teachers is older and more knowledgeable than I am on the scriptures. She truly enhances my lessons and I am learning so much from her!! emoticon

I was so excited when I stepped on the scale this morning. I thought I ate too much junk last night, but I think I haven't been getting enough fat and my body was reacting. Well, I only need to lose 3 pounds to be in Onederland!! I am getting so excited! I haven't been below 200 pounds since 2006. I know I can make it and soon. I just need to keep up on the exercise and eat closer to my high fat range. I might just be restricting too much! That can happen and has for me before. emoticon

Well, I guess I have started my day right. I started by logging my sleep with my FitBit then went on Spark Coach and then did this blog. Now to a healthy breakfast and my shower, so I can go volunteer at NAMI. I am looking forward to a great day. My knees should be better today. I know I won't feel the pain as much once I take my Celebrex. I am hoping to get an actual walk in today. I haven't been on a walk since Monday, but have been using my FitBit to record my steps. emoticon

May your day be filled with sunshine!!

    I can understand the desire to do an activity that you enjoyed, but limited to the parts you have in your body. I hope you're able to find another sport or activity that makes you feel the same way. If I come up with any good ideas, I'll let you know. Meditating on the feeling you had while playing is the only thing I can think of right now.
    Please post a hot new pic from Onederland :) So exciting.
