Let's start with the bad: Since Friday I've been above my calorie range except for Monday. Not cool. Not how I'm going to lose body fat. Not how I'm going to get better, faster, stronger, etc. ... Read more

Went to practice last night and was able to scrimmage. I normally LOVE scrimmaging but it was just hard last night. I think my head wasn't in the game. I ended up feeling picked on and beat up instead of a strong athlete. Our A team was play... Read more
