Hitting it hard - back to basics
Wednesday, March 14, 2012      1 comments

Tuesday morning, my trainer had a treat for me. Weights! A good weight session that reminded me what it feels like to push my body in that way. When you ask for something, this guy listens, and delivers. I love weights (and wrestling) fo... Read more
A higher standard
Tuesday, March 06, 2012      2 comments

I don't know how many of you remember back when I was doing a leadership program thing, but I was. One of those take control of yourself/your life type deals. My trainer (the evil sadist training me in the ways of evil sadism) was the one ... Read more
Good morning! It's self-loathing day!
Monday, March 05, 2012      12 comments

I am not looking for sympathy or "you can do it!" cr@p. I'm not looking for judgement. I'm not looking for advice. I'm here to rant because it's the only place I can rant about this. I have to be all "professional" and sh!t even on Facebook ... Read more
The hard part
Thursday, March 01, 2012      4 comments

I was talking with my trainer this morning during our session about MMA class last night, and he'd mentioned the energy was off. That one of the guys seemed to be pretty frustrated. And he'd said learning new moves can be frustrating, to which... Read more
Train the Trainer Day?
Wednesday, February 29, 2012      5 comments

So, my trainer/aka part owner of my gym has decided that for every 100 'likes' the gym's facebook page gets, we'll have a Train the Trainer day, where clients can come put their trainers through some evil workout of their choosing. We're 5 ... Read more
Competing with yourself
Tuesday, February 21, 2012      5 comments

I am not a competitive person, at least towards others. I'm very much a team player. With myself, it's a different story. When I slack for a week, it means at most an hour of working out a day. And even skipping a day. And I could tell ... Read more
blah.
Thursday, February 16, 2012      1 comments

Yep, back up at 150. I am so tired of this sh!t. Ok honestly, I'm tired, period. First, the good news though - My early-as-f*ck bag class now has two students, soon to have 3. Good times. Now, why the slide up? 1. I've only work... Read more
Poor man's diet
Thursday, February 09, 2012      6 comments

Or in this case, poor woman. The silver lining to my financial issues is that I can't afford to eat a lot, so my weight has stayed around 145. If I continued to eat as sparsely as I did over the past week, I'd be at 140 by the end of February.... Read more
Marketing like a mofo
Wednesday, February 01, 2012      0 comments

Yeah, I said it. Marketing. Apparently my trainer/gym-owner/fight-coach/
life-coach-in-hiding somehow managed to tap into my interest in social media and marketing as a possible future. Ok that's a fancy way of saying he finds stuff fo... Read more
Have I mentioned I love wrestling class?
Tuesday, January 31, 2012      4 comments

It's the most physically demanding training I've got going right now. Every time I do it, I end up wanting to puke about 15 minutes in. It pushes my cardio, muscular endurance, and general toughness (try taking someone's shoulder in your ribca... Read more
Heavy Bag Class - Restarted!
Thursday, January 26, 2012      3 comments

Early this morning, 5:30am to be exact, I ran a heavy bag workout class. It's going to be a regular class, once a week - a workout designed around heavy bag drills and combos, with some other exercises in between. Today's class: Warmup -... Read more
Don't tell me
Tuesday, January 24, 2012      2 comments

Don't tell me that: 1. Your body is disgusting 2. You're a failure 3. You don't have any discipline 4. You're not worth it 5. You're unlovable 6. You're not capable 7. You're not motivated 8. You have to be like other people ... Read more
Champion?
Friday, January 20, 2012      4 comments

What is a champion, really? A champion is someone who gets up when he can't. - Jack Dempsey That's an athlete's definition of champion. There's the dictionary's view: 1. a person who has defeated all opponents in a competition o... Read more
Day off! Gym time!
Tuesday, January 17, 2012      2 comments

Yeah, my days off from work typically mean more gym time. Yesterday started as a 6am speed/agility workout, followed by my private session at 9am. Then there was doing various tasks around the gym until the 6pm bootcamp. My calves basical... Read more
When you love someone...
Friday, January 13, 2012      4 comments

When you love someone: You want them around. You work so they can play. You forgive their mistakes. You're honest with them. You treat them like a person. You love who they are. You want the best for them. You make sacrifices tha... Read more
