145, my old friend
Thursday, January 12, 2012      5 comments

I seem to meet 145 over and over again. My body likes 145, it feels healthy and strong there. Higher, and my body sheds the weight easily. Lower, and it's a hard push to lose a pound. So again, it's time for the hard push to 140, then th... Read more
Plateau-be-gone
Wednesday, January 11, 2012      7 comments

So for the past week or two, I hovered around 148 in the mornings. I haven't been training nearly as much as usual, my eating has been average (not great, not bad), I haven't done the cardio I need. Allergies are in full swing, and congest... Read more
The Pushup Challenge
Friday, January 06, 2012      6 comments

A friend of mine posted a challenge on her facebook, that for every 'like' she got on the post, she would do one pushup. She roped me in to doing the same. So... Here is my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com

When the Chinese New Year hits, it will be the Year of the Dragon, which is my year. By the end of May of this year (my birthday), I'll have been alive for 36 years, and I'll be a fighter, a working trainer, I'll be making money instead of stea... Read more
2 weeks of freedom!
Monday, December 19, 2011      1 comments

Yep, I took an extra week off work, and now I'm free for the next two weeks to do whatever I want, which apparently today meant: 1. Go to the doctor to drain my ear 2. Go to the gym at 11am to get my ass kicked 3. Stay at the gym to do va... Read more
Cauliflower does NOT belong in ears!
Tuesday, December 13, 2011      7 comments

Apparently it's a badge of honor to get cauliflower ear. Interesting that getting smacked on the side of the head that many times would qualify as a badge of honor. Brain damage is the only explanation. However, it is also a sign that I'm... Read more
145.4 again! Also, ow.
Friday, December 02, 2011      2 comments

Training my ass off is hard on my body, obviously. But I think what's harder on my body is having to sit most of the day at work, or the way I sleep. I get extremely stiff and sore. When I'm moving around, I'm ok. I just need to figure o... Read more
146.6. I need a vacation
Thursday, December 01, 2011      7 comments

Honestly, I need a nice, long vacation. I'm going to take one in a couple of weeks. I have 11 pounds to go. The drive between work and the gym is wearing me down. I need a life. I basically can't wait til the end of the ye... Read more
Sore EVERYWHERE
Wednesday, November 30, 2011      0 comments

I've spent the last couple of days sore everywhere. Arms, legs, back, chest, shoulders, hands, feet, probably my abs if they weren't perpetually numb by now. It hurts to sit, stand, lay down, walk, etc. It DOESN'T hurt to work out, though... Read more
Wanna pack tons of cardio in? Wrestling class with my trainer.
Tuesday, November 29, 2011      4 comments

His classes normally are no joke. He pushes like you wouldn't believe, and that's just for a general fitness class. Once you get him going on MMA classes, the kid gloves come off, and the real work starts. I. Love. It. Yesterday he... Read more

Day before Thanksgiving Part I - 146.1 lbs
Wednesday, November 23, 2011      6 comments

This morning's weigh-in: 146.1 lbs. Now I just need to hold steady, make smart indulgent choices, and stick to my somewhat normal workout schedule. This morning's session didn't happen (trainer was resting from hamstring injury), but I know th... Read more
Wrestling in the morning? Yes please!
Tuesday, November 22, 2011      4 comments

So this morning I figured I would have my usual private session with my trainer, some kind of mix of tortures designed to break me. That was not the case today though. The guy who's supposed to be sharing my Tues/Thurs sessions with me so ... Read more
Still 146.6 - The weekend did not set me back
Monday, November 21, 2011      4 comments

While I didn't drop that pound this weekend, I also didn't gain any back. So far, so good. This week I'm aiming for a couple more pounds by the time we have our Thanksgiving dinner (part 2), which is on a Sunday for us. Yesterday's bootca... Read more
