Days 2,3 & 4

Ahhhh!  This weekend did not go as planned at all.  I didn't get around to doing the ab-roller thing, only did 20 minutes on the treadmill on Friday, 1 hour on Sat., and only 15 min on Sun.  Just too damn much to do.

On a more positive note, my eldest sons team won the championship in the Cal City league which is played at the old St. Andrews church.  They played St. Florian on Friday, and murdered them by 29.  I use the word murdered because the parents over there are something else and it was good to beat that team (AGAIN, as usual).  They cry about every call, make snide comments all game, and blame the ref's for their son's poor play and lack of coaching.  Usually, I just let this sort of thing go (I mean, we won, right?!?), but being as this is the last game between the teams that I'll have to watch, I figured I'd give them one last parting shot.  It has been our pleasure to shut you up the last 3 years

On Sunday they played for the championship against The Saints.  I'm still not sure what school they play for but they hung tough for 3 quarters.  We pulled away from them in the fourth by the stellar play of Brian S., Danny and Dan L, Nick and Nick G, Anthony L,, George, and my son Tristen.  Excellent game on both sides of the ball.

I say all of this not only because I'm proud of the team, but because I've been having my own battles...with the concession stand.

At this concession stand, they have all kinds of goodies; Nachos with that awesome melted cheese topped with some jalapeno slices...mmmmmm.....nacho's.  They also have those big pretzels.  You can get 'em plain, with salt, or even with this cinnamon and butter topping that smells so good the second you walk in.  Not to mention all the pop, candy, chips and hot dogs you could ever want. 

However, for all but one of the games, I would just get my water and sit down.  On the one occasion I did splurge some, I had 2 hot dogs at a game because this particular gym uses the kind of dogs I really like.  Not sure of the brand, and frankly, I don't want to know!

So, after all is said and done, I'm down 1lb from last week.  I was hoping for more, but I'll take it I guess.
