Intense As…

I have a new friend you guise. Another American that recently moved here, and we have so much in common, it seems. I went to her house yesterday for an Art date (Just sit around and chat while being creative - it's been a good 7ish years since I've had a friend to do that… Continue reading Intense As…

Testicular Fortitude

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

The memory lingers on

I was walking through Target, minding my own business and noting that they had changed the organization of the store. AGAIN. Thinking to myself that they seem to do that more often than necessary and wondering if perhaps the manager just enjoys confusing his patrons. I passed by where the books used to be -… Continue reading The memory lingers on

STFU and Train

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

Trial By Fire

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

Work, Sleep, and Jiu Jitsu

I don't know how this happened. My blog used to be all memories, relationships, and themes regarding mostly domestic abuse and depression. Now... Fitness? Kickboxing? MMA? BJJ? Who the fuck would have thought? It's veering in a way I wouldn't have dreamed it would go when I started this blog. I mean... I am so… Continue reading Work, Sleep, and Jiu Jitsu

Bad Girls wear Bad Boy

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

Hanging with the boys

Ha. Coach read my last post and made a comment to me about having made the right decision to have a woman take over running the female-only class – because he can’t /doesn’t want to be involved with girl talk. LOL I told him if he needs to cover the class another time I promised… Continue reading Hanging with the boys

Fight Like a F**cking Viking!

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!

He got me against a wall

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

Woefully Tattoo-less/Rock Tape

Screw it. I write when I relax and I might have even a little idea of something to write... And today I had an early day off of work and extra time on my hands without children. My day started off a little iffy... I discovered when I got to work that I had put… Continue reading Woefully Tattoo-less/Rock Tape

MMA and Dane

Oh God. After MMA class last night I feel like I should totally have Justin’s aforementioned muscles by now (See “Well Fit” if you don’t know what I’m referring to…) The instructor… my goodness… Nice guy, but he’s definitely tougher than me! I got to a point where I almost threw up… But I didn’t…… Continue reading MMA and Dane

Well Fit

I dunno why I haven't thought to mention this to Justin before... Ha, he may have seen it on my FB... But I dunno that he gets on enough to notice every post I write... so who knows... But Justin posted something about UFC yesterday and I thought "Huh, I don't think I mentioned to… Continue reading Well Fit
