My back hurts - don't know what I did wrong. Umpired two games of hockey on Saturday and should have sent lots of people off for dissent - I hate that.

And played one on Sunday. I hate losing too. But as a striker there wasn't a lot I could do about the goals at the wrong end. Failed to finish at my end, and the ones I set up that usually get finished off nicely - weren't this time. Ah well.

I seem to have gained a couple of kg too - even though my exercise rate has gone up and my size 13 jeans are now as loose on me as the size 16s were a few months ago. Woo hoo.

Ate absolute rubbish all week while I was finishing of an assignment- not a vege amongst it, and a bit of chocky to sooth the savage beast! Was worth it,apart from what the scales said- have completed my Cert IV in Training & Assessing
Have another cause to celebarte too. My son is going to become a CFA Fire Ready Victoria Presenter, so that makes 2 of us- great to see someone his age so interested in Community Safety

Every holiday I go on, I lose weight - lack of opportunity to eat what I deem to be good food. And I get brutally punished if I eat what isn't good food - ie lose even more weight at high speed - not fun on holidays.

Unsurprisingly it was a "holiday" in Tasmania and too much contact with unsanitary Derwent river giardia that triggered a very sensitive tummy / bowel.

Even a camping holiday where I catered for myself - I still lost weight - because sometimes I had to choose between fixing a flat tyre (or other crisis) and preparing food to eat. [B)]

spent some time with the physio on Friday to repair my slept on the couch back problem. Weirdness - the tight muscles causing the problem were on the opposite side to the pain.

So now I have exercises to do. One lot involve lying on my back bringing both knees up so hip joint and thighs makes a right angle to the floor, and then making a second right angle with the knee joint so ankles off the floor and shin bones parallel to floor... Physio calls it "bug legs". And then move one ankle to touch the floor maintaining the right angle at the knee joint...

Oooh my abs - useless bloody abs - how can I play so much hockey and run so much and still have weak abs? Although I suspect having to hold the double right angle bug leg pose while she explained the rest of the exercise - might have caused some of the weakness/fatigue since it's been easier to do at home that it was at the physio's office.

And there were some more involving arching the back and sticking the hips out - which also hurt my abs (lactic? acid burn). And I thought it was my back muscles that were corrupt.

And today - all I wanted to do was sleep.

Glad you enjoyed LEI seadragon & found time to tie the knot while there....... Your weight gain must have been from wedding cake and champers?!

Looking forward to some pics when you figure out how to upload them.

Summers on its way and I feel more like getting out & doing things. Its gonna be a busy fire season one way or another for me and I need to get fit to cope with that as well as to get into MY wet suit and do some dives!

Got our first semi final tomorrow.

Top two teams play each other and it will be like a grand final grudge match with no rules (I'm expecting the blind umpires).

Today I had a massage to try to kneed out my shoulder that I hurt when I fell on the ground and my stick after being hooked around the ankle as I tried to take off with the ball. Not happy. I couldn't lift my hand over my head for a couple of days but it seems to be all working now - so I'm guessing only muscle damage.

Booked two more massages to resurrect my aging bod after the next two hockey games. Well we'll get at least one more, depending on whether we can beat the team that trains or not.

Getting lots of supplementary exericse walking the dog and umpiring. Umpired two games this morning.
