...All around "fuck!" I'm feeling much better about the Wyatt issue from the past two posts... buuut... I've got two things to bitch about and then I promise, off of the downer posts again for a little while. First, ok, get this: when I saw Wyatt has two facebook accounts the other day, I noticed… Continue reading Fuck, man (or “my feelings taste like donuts”)
The problem with asking your best friends for ideas for your blog is that they will invariably bring up that they still laugh when you write BJJ - for it's resemblance to the acronym "BJ" - and then suggest that that you write something vulgar. Well, that's my best friends for you anyway. So, no,… Continue reading Well, Hello Sailor
Today was the Jiu Jitsu comp... I stayed the whole day which was from 10 am till about 5:45 pm as I was supposed to be the "first aid lady." ....Luckily only one injury to speak of - as in one injury actually requiring special attention and a trip to the hospital (ended up being… Continue reading “Well… Thanks for entering.”
Maja used to do martial arts as a child and teen. I used to be so jealous of her fitness level and strength. I remember her showing off one day at school - she climbed atop the tables in the hall doing push ups on her fists... the catch being that she was going them… Continue reading Testicular Fortitude
Had a couple good conversations yesterday - one with one of my youth girls and one with Coach... so this one is maybe a little long. Enjoy. ~~~~~ “You got Chlamydia? I didn’t see that coming…” This was the first comment one of my youth girls had yesterday after finishing my book. She picked it up on… Continue reading STFU and Train
I was inadequately prepared, my stamina that had been increasing a couple months ago had started decreasing again over the past month with the inability to train as much due to schedules. Coupled with sickness earlier in the week... all goddamn excuses, I know. But needless to say, BJJ training today was rough on me.… Continue reading Trial By Fire
Wow, you guise. I've been receiving some awesome feedback about the guest post I did ( "One Day" ) for Carla Louise's blog - both there, on my reblog, and in my private messages. It's an amazing feeling to have others connect with your writing; and from what one blogger commented today - to receive some credit for… Continue reading Becoming Stronger
So who knew? I’m sure a lot of people did… But I was oblivious. Not really that unusual for me I guess, haha. But now that I have started in the various fighting sports I’m doing, I have needed to get various items of equipment and clothing to utilize day to day obviously. So I… Continue reading Bad Girls wear Bad Boy
After training today, the girls present sat in a circle on the mat as we stretched and chatted. I showed them a sizeable bruise on my knee that I had earned the Saturday before that still had some dark indigo emanating from it... Something I had tried to take pictures of to show a couple… Continue reading War Wounds
My God, I’ve spent too much money this week. I received my tax return last week and while I put most of it away, I did set aside a certain amount as spending money. I wanted to clean out my closets and get some new clothes – especially workout clothes as I have been spending… Continue reading Fight Like a F**cking Viking!
It's been a rough few days. On one hand, I just don't want to get out of bed, ever again. Screw it, it's like that on both hands. Sometimes I wonder about my choices that brought me here. Sometimes I wonder if I'm living the life I'm supposed to with the people I'm supposed to… Continue reading Violently Sad
This weekend at Jiu Jitsu training, we had a new lady start. As we were talking she said something I've heard before - she imparted the advice her boyfriend had given her. He said that all fights eventually get taken to the ground, so it would be a benefit for her to do Jiu Jitsu… Continue reading He got me against a wall
I tell you what, that kick boxing class is no joke. I feel awesome though... except the aching muscles that I'm sure will be stiff and all the more achy in the AM. Just took some magnesium and had a bit of a soak so hopefully that will stave off the worst of it -… Continue reading Oh, I’m gonna be sore tomorrow
I took my first actual jiu jitsu class last night – finally – my goodness, it wore me out. It was fun though and I know I need to stick with it. I really need to get fit again. I could barely do a sit up without having to grab my legs to pull myself… Continue reading HUAH! Look at these muscles!
