Training on Antibiotics

So what is the best way to train on antibiotics?  I’ve hit quite a hurdle in my path to becoming a world champion.  I wanted to compete at least twice before the pans in march and since the funding is looking optimal I’ve tried to maintain a more serious training mindset. Except that I haven’t … Continue reading

Getting my Blue belt and bruised buns

Got my blue belt today but at the expense of my left butt cheek. There were 3 blues, two purples, a green, and an orange. I’m josh’s second female blue belt. Today was bittersweet and you know why. But anywho, had to show a technique, got belted, you were thrown by the higher ranking belts … Continue reading

The only exception

It’s a beautiful day today and I’m happy to say..well that I’m happy-er than I was yesterday, or the day before, or the day before.  My flame for jiujitsu is reignited and I can only hope for the best now. I’ll start with how my flame got its flicker back. Usually when the going gets tough I get … Continue reading

I think it’s best…

I think it’s best that I write as little as possible tonight. Right now I feel like taking an extended break from jiu jitsu. Tonight was just one of those nights….one of those nights where i question competing…training…hell, everything. I’m rational so I know…or at least hope this will pass. There is no single reason … Continue reading

Push through the pain

I’ve experienced plateaus here and there but nothing like the past few weeks. I took a full week off of everything and I though that would make me uber hungry for some bjj but it didn’t…quite the contrary…it only made me miss certain aspects of my life beforehand.  This week was especially difficult. It felt … Continue reading

My disappointments

Currently in a Netflix coma…yesterday I had 20 movies/shows added to my que. Today thanks to mostly my boyfriend there are over 380 movies/ shows on my que as we speak.  I’m still wondering how on earth I could find enough time in a day, in a week, in a month  to watch half of … Continue reading

“Just because you trained for something doesn’t mean you’re prepared for it.”

“Just because you trained for something doesn’t mean you’re prepared for it.”- anonymous Woe is me. The above quote is exactly how I feel after judo tonight.  There were only 5 of us at class tonight, including the instructor. I paired up mostly with Debandi aka The Girlfriend, mostly because he’s the closest to my … Continue reading

This used to be fun.

In the past couple weeks I’ve been trying to follow the “If you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all.”  I’ve gone through my saved drafts of blogs that I meant to post in the last 9 days and once I’ve read them over a few times I must say … Continue reading

Blah Blah Blahbity Blah..

Well I’m afraid I don’t have a whole lot to report. Last night Josh came in and it was open mat style again. Lots of rolling to make up for the lack thereof on tuesday night. My performance was something like this _____^_____^^^_____ if you’re wondering that’s supposed to resemble a heart monitor in the … Continue reading
