Where would I be if I'd never gained weight?
Sunday, August 01, 2010      4 comments

Losing weight isn't easy. That's a given. The more you need to lose, the harder it can seem. But I started wondering: Where would I be now if I hadn't gained weight in the first place? For one thing, I don't think I'd be taking Krav Mag... Read more
July: Month of Hikes?
Sunday, August 01, 2010      2 comments

It's possible. Today I went on another hike, this time closer to home. Sturtevant Falls in the Big Santa Anita Canyon (Angeles Forest), a hike up to a 50ft waterfall. 1.2 miles for the first trail, and supposedly 1.8 miles to the falls for th... Read more
I never thought I'd say THAT
Wednesday, July 28, 2010      8 comments

A year ago, I thought I knew who I was. I liked staying in, gaming, chatting with friends, watching the occasional movie. When I traveled, it was just about getting away, or exploring new restaurants. Staying in the hotel was perfectly fine, ... Read more
Waking up is hard to do
Monday, July 26, 2010      3 comments

I have a new goal. Wake up every morning without hitting the snooze button. That means 6 am every morning (well, Monday through Friday anyway), from the moment the alarm sounds. Do this for a month. I managed to start today, which means ... Read more
Move along, nothing to see here

So: Before my vacation, I weighed in at 147 lbs at my lowest. The day after my vacation, I weighed in at 154 lbs. Today, a week later, I weighed in at 148 lbs. My lowest is usually in the mornings, before breakfast and after my morning ... Read more
Reward?
Friday, July 23, 2010      9 comments

I don't think I've done a goal-reward thing since early in my weight loss journey. I mean, what kind of reward do you need for the opportunity to learn fighting? Isn't that basically a reward in itself? However, there is something I shoul... Read more
Easing my way back into it
Thursday, July 22, 2010      6 comments

I'm sure some people won't consider what I'm doing "easing" my way back into things after vacation, but if you consider all the stuff I was doing before it, I'm definitely taking it slow. I started out with the sunday beach boot camp, and m... Read more
Perception
Saturday, July 17, 2010      7 comments

Sometimes it seems people have this idea that I'm some kind of crazy obsessed fitness freak. Like it would make me go insane if I ate anything less than perfect, or that skipping a workout just breaks my brain. Nah, I'm not that bad. I ju... Read more
Aaah, vacation
Saturday, July 17, 2010      4 comments

A week off from tracking, working out, even thinking about being healthy. Not that I completely went off the wagon or anything because I'm not sure I even can anymore. However, the only exercise I got was hiking for 3 miles, and there were a c... Read more
Battered, bruised, and loving it
Friday, July 09, 2010      3 comments

I had my second bag class yesterday and learned something new. I'd been kicking the bag, and developed this weird bump on my shin. It confused the hell out of me because, well, it's just weird. The instructor came over, looked at it, and told... Read more
Why do it? I like the way it feels
Tuesday, July 06, 2010      2 comments

The few of you who've read my various posts on here probably have some idea of what kind of workouts I like most. Weights, martial arts, and bootcamp style stuff. I don't like yoga, and I only really like cardio if I'm pushing myself to add an... Read more
Heavy bag class
Friday, July 02, 2010      2 comments

Today was the first time I tried out the heavy bag class, and I'm wondering why the hell I didn't do it sooner. After the basic warmup workout, we went straight into bag drills/combos. Kicking a heavy bag hurts your shins, dammit. In fa... Read more
Like the first day
Wednesday, June 30, 2010      2 comments

My current trainer managed to make me puke, and he was happy about it, like all those sadists calling themselves trainers. I'm pretty sure I know why I puked, because it only really happens when I eat too soon before a heavy workout. Unfor... Read more
Weights again!
Thursday, June 24, 2010      0 comments

This week, since my trainer was out of town, I decided to start hitting the weights again. Wednesday I mostly wanted to see where I was in terms of strength, how much I needed to gain back. The good news, my legs are still "the strongest l... Read more
I want to like yoga, really
Wednesday, June 23, 2010      11 comments

I know I should do yoga, or something of that nature. I need to improve my balance and flexibility. I need a lot of things that my more aggressive workouts don't focus on. But really, yoga is not something I enjoy. It's not like the pros... Read more
