I used to play football a lot when I was younger, and even into my early 20's I was relatively fit. Since then I had to stop playing football due to injuries, and through lack of exercising, getting on medication and what not I gained about 120 pounds or more. This has lead to lifestyle problems related to the overweight, such as sleep apnea and diabetes. Luckily my numbers in regards to blood sugar are low and stable, so that's good, despite the fact that I'm not good at remembering to take my medication for it, but the way forward for me does seem to be to exercise more.

I know they often say weight loss is in the diet, but I usually don't have the energy to cook much or the money to pay for pre-made healthier meals, and I've always had good luck with losing weight only through exercising. About 2 months ago I was at 150 kg/330 lbs. I was just on the scale today and I'm at 143.5 kg or 316 lbs.

This has mostly happened since I joined some exercise football fitness here in town. Something called Football for the Heart, for people with lifestyle problems. The first training session was on the 11th of June. It's just 1 hour each Friday, and it's in whatever tempo you want to participate in.

Here are some pictures from that:

Now there's a summer break untill the 20th of August, which started some 1½ or 2 weeks ago, I think, but I decided to try and keep working on getting in shape again, so I'm doing 2 sessions a weel by myself running around on a local football field for 25-30 minutes.

My main goal is not to lose weight, to be honest, it is to have fun first and foremost with a sport I like. If someone told me to go to the gym, play golf or something else I'd lose interest quickly. That's been my experience in the past. So football it is and fun it is, but only in a tempo and at a pace my knees can handle, which means I'm not joining a "real" club, but exercise football works!

I made a video about it today! This is about the first time in about 7 years that I'm shooting at a full size goal.

Just a fun song from some show (I don't know which).

Okay, so maybe not entirely new, but he started creating videos on YouTube about half a year ago it would seem. He has some good videos, great production and already have quite a good numbers of subscribers, viewers and such. I've watched the 6 he has up now, and I think they are great content. It's more on the jazzy side of things, I suppose, but there some interesting concepts for all players, in my opinion. I'm gonna link all 6 videos here in order of old to new:
