Off To A… Start

Well I guess it’s a new year.  I’m hoping it will be a good one. It’s starting out blah. I feel absolutely horrible both physically and mentally. I can’t stand being in my own fat ass body. Ughhh. So weak willed.  I’ve been working out really hard lately but that makes little difference when you constantly shovel food in to your mouth.

I haven’t done much BJJ in the last 2 weeks.  There just really hasn’t been much around with the Christmas holidays. I went to one open mat on Dec 28th.  That was a pretty good time. It was a small group. Nevertheless I got in some quality rolls.

On January 11 I head out to Whistler for a week of skiing.  They’ve been getting hammered with snow this winter, so the skiing should be fabulous.  My head and inner self are making it hard for me to look forward to the trip.  I don’t really want to be around the men I’ll be on the trip with.  Honestly, I just want to be alone…  I’m sure I’ll have a good time once I get out there.

A Little Help

I need a little help from y’all. I’m looking to gain some of the knowledge that a personal trainer would have, without enrolling in school. Can anyone suggest some texts or books that I should read?  We’re taking entry level people. 😀

Dang! That Was Heavy!

Well I finally made another strength goal!  400lbs for dead lift.  I was actually scared.  I was praying that my knees, back, hips, etc hold up.  My wife was recording me.  She was scared too.  lol

Made It Twice This Week

As the title suggests, I made it to two BJJ classes this week. Last night I tested the hip/groin out by rolling a little harder.  To this point, I’d been going very, very light. I’m happy to say that it held up with less pain. I’m still going to physio and I do still have pain, so I’m still being cautious. However, it’s nice to see that faint light at the end of the tunnel. 🙂
