  1. Hi guys. Just wanted to say I just ordered a Fuji Superaito. I haven't worn it yet, but It feels so supple. I'm doing an army school at the moment, so Im not training for the next month. Also, I got my purple belt last week. So theres that.
  2. Its going. I haven't been working out as much, because I tweeked a muscle in my neck. I have been eating a little better, and actually packed a salad for lunch today. lol.
  3. Hi guys, I just wanted to share that I'm doing a workout program from beachbody called "Les Mills Combat". I've done it before an had pretty good results, so I decided to try it again. I figured I'd share it here, because the workout is kind of like a cardio pseudo-MMA based work out. I hate even saying that, but its how it is marketed. I started monday, so there is plenty of time to jump in and keep people accountable. I think i've seen some of the videos on youtube. Anyways, post here for accountability and crap like that.
  4. Sorry, I don't get on this site much while I'm at home, and I've been enjoying my long weekend. Anyways, the problem with my diet is 1) I love food, and healthy food sucks. 2) my autistic daughter subsists on chips, crackers, cookies and chicken nuggets, so that stuff is always in the house. Did really well today though, both diet wise and exercise. I decided to start up a beachbody program called "Combat", which is basically an MMA based P90x. I've also been pretty consistent with my BJJ practice as well, so things are going good. I started Combat today, and was surprised to
  5. Staying active. I've been managing to hit my daily goals on Pushups/squats. I did go running Wednesday night. Diet is still crap though.
  6. Thanks I've been pretty active the past few days. Last night I hit up BJJ again...hopefully i'll be back in class tomorrow night and Saturday. Still doing my pushups at work, though yesterday I wasn't able to do that many squats. We were busy. I think I'm gonna go for a jog tonight, since the weather is unseasonably warm here in Kentucky.
  7. I'm kinda hoping for a medical retirement. lol My diet at drill was crap. I travel, so ate at restaurants. At least I worked out a lot.
  8. Happy to report that I was much more assertive at class the other night.
  9. Ya know, I just looked at my profile, its P2 for FM, and 3 for hearing. I was confused. I did have to medboard for my hearing, but I didn't actually do anything. I'm at the point now where if I get kicked out on a med board, I'll be medically retired. I'm fine with that. How long have you been in?
  10. Our classes are generally less than six people, so plenty of one on one work. I'd always recommend getting out there and mixing it up with a group class. One of the best things about Jiu Jitsu is that we highly encourage visiting other gyms and style and the sharing of techniques. When I studied Karate, there was a bit of a "keep to your own" mentality. You grow quite a bit when you expose yourself to other styles. Ugh, Dizziness is the worst. I still get dizzy doing forward rolls in our lane drills.
  11. I'm a 35F, Intelligence Analyst. I enlisted, literally, the day we started the war in Iraq. I was sitting in MEPS, watching the coverage. I've got a P3, because I have Fibromyalgia and some hormonal issues that started shortly after I got back from Iraq/Kuwait. Luckily, the VA recognizes this. Hello, fellow Bulldog.
  12. Last night at BJJ was pretty awesome. I didn't want to go. I was dragging my feet, and almost turned around on the way out there (its about a 10 minute drive to my gym). Last night was literally the only night this week I could go, because I leave tonight to go to drill. Anyways, I wound up just saying "screw it" and going. I'm really glad I did. Our black belt instructor, Darin, only teaches one night a week. I've mentioned that he's super legit, with a great lineage (very important in BJJ, because it weeds out frauds) and is a great teacher. A BJJ black belt, especial
  13. Congrats on landing a touch. One of the things I love about martial arts, is the sense of community. My training partners are my people. We go to dinner together, we tease, etc. When one of us hits a really awesome submission, the guy getting submitted is happy. He usually asks to see the set up and how it happened.
  14. The only problem that I feel with keto is that by the end of my work day, I'm starving. I will usually come home and eat some cheese or pepperoni, and be fine though. I really do drop weight pretty quickly on Keto, but I really like food so I use it sparingly. The only specific reward I have planned is for when I get my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu purple belt. I'm gonna buy a brand new peacocky gi
  15. Right now, I'm just eating less junk, eating more veggies, and increasing activity. As the school date approaches, I'll do keto to drop any remaining weight I have. This morning I weighed in at 183, so down 3 lbs this week. The school is Senior Leaders Course. I've been on the E-7 list for the past three years, but when the army implemented the STEP program, my priority for school dropped (in order to get current E7s through the school). This year I'm top priority, because the backlog has been cleared. I'm already in a slot, so I'm hoping to pin in May. Also, you rape
