The Week (and Month) in Review: Cutting Weight

Sunday, December 04, 2011      8 comments

November started off the bat with the challenge of injuring my rib in Muay Thai. I couldn't do any intense exercise for 2 and 1/2 weeks. Having said that, I am very glad it healed that quickly--I've heard horror stories of rib injuries causing p... Read more

When good trainers go bad...

Wednesday, November 30, 2011      9 comments

I found out today that my trainer Ty quit very suddenly on Monday. I won't go into the details because it ended badly for Ty and he ended up being escorted out. To say the least, I am saddened. I was just getting to know Ty and appreciate some o... Read more

The Week in Review: It only hurts when I scream.

Sunday, November 13, 2011      12 comments

Yeah, I know, the title may be misleading, but this week was a great improvement compared to the previous couple of weeks. My attitude was on the fritz, I've been overeating, I haven't been able to do intense exercise and because of my ribs, it ... Read more

The Week in Review: A Good Ribbing

Sunday, November 06, 2011      12 comments

My first week of November didn't start out the smoothest, starting with a couple of blows to my confidence. Part of it was my fault, part of it was beyond my control. The good news is, I now know the difference (usually) between when I am the on... Read more

Dammit, I didn't get fired.

Thursday, November 03, 2011      26 comments

Yeah. So this week is not getting a whole lot better. That's right, it's another whiny-ass blog. I have a rib injury and can't go to MMA training the next 2 days, and I've just been displeased in general this week. So when I got a call fro... Read more

So you know when you're fighting someone and they kick you in the ribs?

Wednesday, November 02, 2011      8 comments

Yeah, I hate that, too. Okay, it is not accurate to say that I got kicked in the ribs. On Monday, while I was doing take-downs, my ribs landed on my partner's knee when I did a sloppy move. It stunned me a little bit, but I didn't think muc... Read more

It's only Tuesday. So far I have made an ass of myself at the gym, an ass of myself at my saxophone lesson, and then an ass of myself at the grocery store when my card got declined. Oh wait, it wasn't 1 card that got declined, it was 2 of them. ... Read more

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them... Read more

BAZOOKABOBCAT wrote a blog so wonderful that it brought tears to my eyes. It's about being beautiful in everyday moments. I can't find the words to adequately describe her poetic blog, but here is the last paragraph from it: "There's no mag... Read more

Jiu Jitsu + Muay Thai=New Approach Needed

Monday, October 24, 2011      11 comments

I went to my first Jiu Jitsu class this morning. The class was small and Nate, the head instructor, showed me some of the basics. The movements were very different from what I am used to doing in Muay Thai, other activities, and everyday life. O... Read more
