WEEK 1 DAY WEDNESDAY

 

I'm having kind of a slow start on this challenge, and considering I started pretty late, I'm not surprised. Are you surprised? don't be surprised. 

 

I will say that I crossfitted yesterday and today, and also we had tkd last night. we're prepping 2 students (one is my stepdude!) to take their black belt test this weekend, and my leg has been.... erratic [not the cadaver ligament's fault] so I didn't do much, but did jump in to sparring with some of the white belts to practice with them. (note to those worried about us beating up unprepared children: we do no contact sparring and start at white belts - which I know is unusual - to get them used to facing off and in the rhythm of a fight. we don't do traditional tourny style sparring either, so it helps them understand how to flow their moves together AS they are learning. BUT, we don't have the white belts start out against the other color belts at the beginning because they don't have control at this stage, and it's important to take things SO SLOW.)

 

Food stuff: I didn't write down my food yesterday, and not so far yet today. but I did pack a good set of food yesterday and put off snacking in the afternoon and waited for dinner. (note to self: meal plan more vegetables into meals.) today we went out for lunch and I def ate too much, so I'll keep an eye on dinner to make it lighter / healthier. I'm trying to work in some actual moderation? it's hard? I am an immoderate soul.

 

knee stuff: didn't call yet for an appt. it felt weird after dumbbell thrusters today (and a general chorus goes up with a "oh really? do you think so? who's a dumbbell thruster NOW?!") BUT I have an ice pack at work and will grab it for part of the afternoon.

I feel this so hard.

 

Honestly, it sounds to me like you're doing JUST FINE.

Honestly, the striking martial arts scene up in NY is just so. Good. There's just a general focus on effective practice and application, and I've been led to understand that this emphasis ultimately tends to grind out the belt mills/McDojos. Good stuff.

 

Also, you can learn a lot about striking from untrained white belts in particular. Because they're unpracticed, two things tend to happen: 1) they move with weird timing [herky jerk, arrhythmic, stiff] and 2) they have all these weird tells that you don't see in practiced folk. It's a whole other set of problems to solve, and it can actually force you to get really sharp really quick.

 

It's not a bad outcome at all.

That'd actually be @Rurik Harrgath's fault. He's the one who kept putting the Necromancer tag on me, I just quit resisting eventually.

 

It was a natural and organic phenomenon; I merely interpreted the Oracle signs into words we lowly mortals could comprehend.  ;)

 

Although I prefer to mentally picture you as more of an Orc Shaman, truth be told.

Oh, sure, it's all fun and games, until suddenly there's a fountain of blood in the library getting the books all sticky, and strange things with tentacles jumping on the bed and chewing holes in your underwear.

Hiiiii! Excited to see you! I hope your knee is sorted out soon! (Hate it when bodies get in the way of fun things. If you ever end up necromancing me, I just want to be a ghost, no body to worry about hurting.)

Omg twin, oh my twin.   I am a terrible super twin!!!    You had made mention, WEEKS ago you were considering a come back, and I think I even saw you post on my thread once, but I foolishly assumed that I had found your thread, and hit follow and you just had been busy and that's why I saw nothing.

 

I NEVER FOLLOWED YOU!!!

Also, when I saw this, I couldn't help but start singing a new song ...
