Therapy Session
Tuesday, September 20, 2011      1 comments

A good training session can be very therapeutic, especially in the morning when the gym is quiet and you have the kind of relationship with your trainer like I do, where he just tells me what to do real quick, then I do it while he talks about w... Read more
Keep the goal in sight, dammit
Monday, September 19, 2011      1 comments

My trainer is partially right. I've been depressed and frustrated lately because I didn't have a goal to work towards. He gave me one: A potential fight Oct. 28. That requires: 1. dropping weight 2. getting registered 3. training m... Read more
Forced Rest Day
Thursday, September 15, 2011      4 comments

Today was supposed to be my Heavy day, but considering the pain in my knees and quads when doing any sort of squat, the slight pain in my left rib that gets aggravated when I do situps or have pressure on it, and the pain and weakness in my shou... Read more
Reset Day is back
Wednesday, September 14, 2011      2 comments

Today I've been really feeling yesterday's workouts (personal training session, bootcamp, jiujitsu), in that I've been hungry since last night, even after I ate, and I ate an 800 calorie breakfast this morning and was still hungry. It's dyi... Read more
Tournament! Milestone 1: Achieved!
Sunday, September 11, 2011      9 comments

So, I had my first competition today: Jujitsu tournament. I won my first match, lost my next 2. When I asked my trainer/coach how I did, he said I was pretty impressive, actually (his words). I had good control, but he could see where the ho... Read more
145 baby!
Thursday, September 08, 2011      4 comments

Now to make it really official, I have my usual bootcamp tonight plus Jujitsu class, and tomorrow's weight cutting session with my trainer. That should drop me down the extra couple of pounds to take care of any scale fluctuation by Saturday af... Read more
Officially registered, and cutting weight
Tuesday, September 06, 2011      6 comments

I never should have splurged so much this weekend, because over the course of the weekend I 1. Ate a lot 2. Ate more 3. Found out I could still register for the jujitsu tournament happening this Sunday 4. Registered 5. Committed to dro... Read more
Needs more sleep
Wednesday, August 31, 2011      1 comments

I have decided that the culprit in my recent hunger and weight issues (recent as of the past few days) is my lack of sleep. I regularly get about 4-5 hours of uninterrupted sleep, and it's caught up with me. I was up to 149/150 over the we... Read more
Listening to my body
Wednesday, August 24, 2011      8 comments

As I've known for a while (after 2 years of doing this), every couple of weeks or so my body needs a Reset Day, and usually it will force me to take it. Yesterday, I'd done an hour session with my trainer, plus an extra hour of cardio he as... Read more
Week 1 Results
Monday, August 22, 2011      0 comments

Started at 155/156, ended the week at 150/151. So far, so good, relatively. My body hasn't quite adjusted to the reduced carbs, so I was struggling a lot, especially on Sunday. I almost never have trouble doing the bootcamp workout, but yeste... Read more
I wish I were doing this for shallow reasons
Tuesday, August 16, 2011      2 comments

If I were just trying to lose weight for my looks, I'd be done by now. I'd happily coast at 150-155, where I've been for the past few months, still a size 6 (a muscular size 6), with legs that people recognize and dream of having. But no, ... Read more
Wait, what? I need clients?
Friday, July 29, 2011      5 comments

Apparently, I need more clients. One supposedly is not enough. I agree, but my trainer (aka Sadist aka mentor aka coach aka standard by which I measure other men) has told me I should be making a push for clients. I didn't know you needed... Read more
Damn you, Spin Class!
Thursday, July 21, 2011      4 comments

Our gym has a spin room, or should I say a spin box from hell. They like it that way, because you sweat buckets in that class. Door closed, no fan, and sadistic trainers makes for a cardio workout that comes closer to making me throw up than a... Read more
1500
Monday, July 18, 2011      2 comments

That's my magic number for the next few weeks. 1500 calories per day. So far today what I have planned is 1444. As long as I don't end up snacking I should be good. Staying below 1500 a day is going to be all about timing and food qual... Read more
Twist me into knots
Monday, July 11, 2011      4 comments

Wrestling class is full of drills that bend my body in ways they just don't go. I never realized your neck is designed to support your body weight. I'm pretty sure the chiropractor I've started going to doesn't realize it either. Between ... Read more
