Day of the almost dead
Tuesday, September 28, 2010      2 comments

I don't know what was up with me today. I only had the one workout, the evening class (not even a one-on-one session), yet I almost threw up. Today was full body day, and consisted of the following: Circuit (I don't remember how lon... Read more
Mmm Sunday Bootcamp

This stuff be awesome. It was a very hot day for our 4.5 mile jog, but we took it easier today, and no one suffered any illness or anything. Of course, among our runners was one person training to be a firefighter and the other already a perso... Read more
Woo short hair!
Saturday, September 25, 2010      8 comments

Today, finally got my hair chopped really short. This is the first time ever in my life that I've had hair this short. I don't have to worry about it when I'm working out, which is awesome. Also, the stylist cut the hair to work with my hair'... Read more

It is confirmed. Friday is regularly going to be me and my buddy in a joint session, working on jiujitsu. Today was practicing triangle choke, triangle choke escape (two versions), arm bar, arm bar escape, key lock (and he forgot to go over th... Read more
An online dating site? The horror!
Friday, September 24, 2010      12 comments

I reinstated my account on an online dating site (one of those nice free ones because all my money goes into something useful: kicking people's asses). Every time I visit, I'm reminded why I didn't enjoy it. 1. I can't market myself very ... Read more
Woo kickboxing!
Thursday, September 23, 2010      17 comments

I love it when my sessions include kickboxing. I get to work on my form and just have fun. My kicks are getting better, and starting to feel a little more natural. I'm still having issues with pulling my hand back to my face on the punches, a... Read more
Double Days, almost as good as Bootcamp Days
Thursday, September 23, 2010      3 comments

Today was of course my Double Day. Unfortunately, operating on 5 hours of sleep the night before left me mentally... weak for this morning's session. Mostly, I took a longer break than I needed (otherwise known as slacking) before finishing of... Read more
Day 3: Starting the week off right
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      4 comments

Yep, today he said (halfway through killing me), "Oh by the way. Today's gonna be a tough one. Gotta start the week off right." He smiled, I managed a little laugh and some form of affirmative response. Today he gave me the leg and ab wo... Read more
Week 2, Day 2
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      5 comments

OK, I love this. I hate it, and I love it. Mostly, I hate when I can't do something the trainer's asking me to do, and I love the push to do it. My week starts on Sunday at this point. Yes, I count my weekdays by workouts. Sunday to Fri... Read more
When do I get my secret lair?
Sunday, September 19, 2010      6 comments

Since about halfway through training with my first trainer, when I was the chick with the crazy strong legs putting up the most weight on the leg press, people have been throwing the superhero thing at me. At that gym my little nickname among h... Read more
Final toll
Friday, September 17, 2010      6 comments

The end of my first Hell week has arrived. As far as I can tell, my trainer is easing me into it. None of the sessions were particularly difficult (except the upper body set that left me sore the rest of the week). Ok, let me rephrase that. ... Read more
Best way to end a week
Friday, September 17, 2010      4 comments

Today was not ultimate torture day as my trainer had promised yesterday. Instead, today was even better. My workout buddy (his other hardcore client) joined in on my session so we could work on jiujitsu, grappling, groundwork, whatever you... Read more
By the way, tomorrow's going to be the hardest. You will throw up.
Thursday, September 16, 2010      10 comments

Yeah, my trainer threw that line out there as I was leaving my session today. I guess he's saving all his best sadism for the end of the week. So, even though I have a final month paid for on krav maga, I will not be going to bag class tonight... Read more
Halfway Through Double Day
Wednesday, September 15, 2010      9 comments

This morning was apparently abs, and tonight's class is going to be abs. In fact, my trainer warned me after this morning's session that tonight would be abs. Truth is, I suspected as much, if only because he's just evil like that. My lef... Read more
