Soccer Sundays

Yesterday was soccer game #3 for our season.
I had a blast!
In game 2 I tried to play a little too hard, or maybe I didn't stretch long enough...
either way, I pulled my quad muscle and thought I was dying for a good 2-3 days.
I wasn't sure I would even be able to play yesterday, but I made it through the whole game.
Good thing too, since we had no subs and just enough to play!
I've finally found a no slip solution for my hair.
I'm a picky girl about the headbands or hair apparatuses that are used.
I don't want it to slip. 
Like, at all.
And I don't want to have to mess with it.
Like, AT ALL.
So I got Brady Bands.
And my life is now complete.
If you don't have these you need to go order some now.

We played a Gwinnett Soccer Association team in Lilburn yesterday.
I drove allllllllllll the way to the other side of Atlanta, past Stone Mtn, and finally arrived at the fields.
Literally across the street from one of our friends' schools.
Porter coaches wrestling at Parkview and was totally thrilled to see his school.
Such a nice campus and located across from really nice fields.

Our game seemed like a really long game, but it was a good one.
The other team didn't appear to be in great shape, so they were easily outrun.
They only made it to our side of the field offensively once or twice.
Our sweeper is amazing and I'm so thrilled that she's got my back, especially since I'm still crippled.
Our offense is awesome as well, and very young, compared to the rest of us....
So they play well together with lots of energy!

The first couple of sprints and kicks for the ball reminded me that my leg was still recovering!
I was in liveable pain for a good 30 minutes before my leg finally let me play!
I can still feel the injury this morning but I know I'll survive.
I wore my heart rate monitor and tracked my calorie burn for the game.

1400 calories friends.
I need to play soccer every single day so I can eat 400 brownies, ok?
Geeeeze Louise.
Our team is undefeated, yay!
Hoping to continue that streak this weekend.
This weekend is the first game on our 'home' field and I won't be able to play.
I've got sister duty (that I'm pleased to assist with) at a bridal shower.
I can't wait to spend some time with the bride to be and her maids this weekend.
Saturday mom and sisters came to play at my house.
It was a nice thing before life gets crazy with spring stuff at school and wedding madness!
We had Chick fil A (duh) and then a cupcake buffet.
I had one whole cupcake and 1/4 of another one.

They were worth every.single.calorie.
And then I ran 5 miles.
