Just a little swing in it from down in lethargic to down in a agitated mixed state ... Because of the winter influence, february is a hard time for me ... I go up and down with the weather and (lack of) light. Clouded: can't get of the couch, sunny blue sky I'm hyper and aggressive. It drives me nuts. It's if my body doesn't know what to be lethargic or agita... Sat, 23 Feb 2008 06:23:14 EST Age ?!?!??! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=957557 Yesterday I was playing Hockey Indoor again with the 20 somethings. After our last game, I was packing my stuff and an other team was filling in their forms nearby (they had to play later that evening). They were filling in dates of birth. I commented: OMG you're not really doing that ... The team captain responded that she had to because they were minors (or junior players as we call them). So one of the girls stated that she was from 1993. I just blurted it out ... @##$ (bad dutch language... Fri, 25 Jan 2008 05:12:05 EST IIIII'MMMMM SOOOOOO HURT http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=939591 Can you hear Timi Yuro wailing LOL ... <BR> <BR> My legs hurt like hell. I've comited myself to the reserve indoor-hockey team of my club. They play top league for reserves. Most of the girls just not good enough for our first team (they are the reserves), some of them playing in the first team ... when you know that the first team was national champion last year and have good chance of being that again and that they deliver to our national indoor team that is the ruling world champion, you ... Sat, 19 Jan 2008 08:09:15 EST TABLEAU ??? :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=919630 After complaining about my losing the same 5 LB over and over again I made a little change .... For those who like to know if it worked I have the following update: <BR> <BR> I did eat take away once this, I did eat some drop, most of the time I stayed in range (high on workout days). I did only 30 min more cardio then planned (5 times 45 min), but as I played hockey this week, that wasn't a surprice. As a goalkeeper I don't burn that much in 75 min ;) I believe it was 300 cals or less. <BR... Sun, 13 Jan 2008 06:57:52 EST Tableau :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=896623 I have been losing 5 LB over and over again since september. I had my up during Christmas and I'm on the down again. It's frustrating me like hell. OK maybe a little has gone comparing to my september high, like 2 LB or so, but I'm still over 80K and I really want to get into the 70th. I want to be in the 60th when it's summer :) ... <BR> <BR> My condition is improving though ... both endurance and speed. So that is going well. I might have been eating to much since september. Overestimati... Sun, 6 Jan 2008 07:35:38 EST VACATION? Forget it :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=869576 I had planned to be free for 2 whole weeks and do I need it! Well what do you thing I did on my first day of (yesterday) I worked! I visited a client in detention with Immigration in part of my country.... She is a possible victim of human trade (forced prostitution) and as it is one of my specialties (no I won't get rich) A lawyer from an other firm had asked to take the case from him. <BR> <BR> This weekend I will write at least 1 brief as I have to do 2 briefs and 4 appeals before Christm... Sat, 22 Dec 2007 10:13:13 EST OUCH AGAIN BECAUSE OF ATHLETIC PROWESS :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=869568 The ladies reserve team of my hockey club had asked me to join them at two indoor games last thursday. It's in the reserve premier league on national level with girls in the twenties or younger. I said yes and played not bad ... We lost one (no doubt they will be the champs as they have been for the last years) and won one. As it was at a pretty high level and I didn't wanted to be the worst in the field, I did my darnest best, being al over the place (in my goal circle of course). And goal... Sat, 22 Dec 2007 10:02:55 EST VIEW http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=838053 A misleading pic and a misleading title ... It's still about view or more precise about the view of others. <BR> <BR> I played a fieldhockey game today. A keeper is not allowed to touche the ball outside the circle with her feet, just her stick. A forward came at me alone. I spurted out of my goal and my aim was to meet her at the circles end (and get the ball of cours) I was a bit faster then i thought I was and she was slower. End of story: I made my action outside of my circle which mend... Sun, 25 Nov 2007 11:09:35 EST
