Sorry sorry!  I know I'm late.  Hi! By the way, I'm Jay and I was a rebel for a while.  I've been active on and off and I really want to make that more on than off this time around.  I have a black belt in Taekwondo, but haven't really done too much in about a decade.  I'm a noob (white) belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu although, I've trained on and off for financial reasons since 2009.  I've trained in Muay Thai since 2009.  Here are my goals:



1. Go to class three times between Monday - Friday and hit an open mat on the weekend.  

Simply put, if you don't go to class, you're not gonna get any better.  Of course, there are exceptions like sometimes you hit a plateau and you just need to step away for a bit to sort of reset.  I'm not at a plateau.  So yeah, I plan to go at least three times between Monday - Friday.  I think that's doable, I mean I'd like to go 8 times, and hit an open mat, but I don't wanna burn myself out.  My gym has classes at 6AM and 6PM Monday - Friday and an open mat from 8AM - 11PM, so the scheduling isn't too bad that I can't maybe get a two-a-day in.  I also want to really go to open mats because I learn a lot from the people that go and they're not all from the same gym, so I get an extra bit of education that I might not normally get.  Like last week we had Moku Kahawai come in and he's a 5x IBJJF World Champion.  I got to roll around with him which was cool. I may substitute the last open mat because I'm attending a Jiu Jitsu seminar on 11/27 which is the Sunday after the challenge ends, but hey, everything's more guideline than rule, right?


2. Eat a stupid salad.

I don't eat enough vegetables.  I also want to lose some weight.  I also want to save money.  I figure if I have a salad each day for lunch, I can help out on all three of those.  A salad will have vegetables.  Although, a pizza salad sounds amazing.  That's four slices of pizza in a bowl.  I'm gonna eat a real salad with vegetables and some chicken, maybe some nuts.  Trader Joe's has some premade ones that I like and they're like 4 bucks each and it kinda fills me up.  I know not all salads will help me lose weight, so I'll try to choose a healthier salad just to get my feet wet.



1. My house is a mess.  I don't want to be considered a messy person.  I'm going to work on cleaning one room in the house each day in hopes that overall, the house will be clean and I will rarely have to do a deep clean of the whole house which would probably just end up with me feeling overwhelmed and just giving up.  


I'll throw a bonus goal in there.  I guess it would be a fitness goal.  With Thanksgiving being next Thursday, I'm going to challenge myself to not go too crazy on feasting.  I do want to end up losing weight as I've ballooned up to 260.  A long-term goal would be to get down to around 180-190 and then eventually compete in tournaments, so I have to keep that in mind.

Hey yo, love me a quickie challenge!! Good call not overdoing Rx classes, I know too well how tempting it is to do all the things out of the gate! Also, agreed. Salads are stupid. Eat one for me pls? (I do make pizza crust out of cauliflower sometime - BOOM!) Good luck with all!!

Hey, salads are good if you do 'em right. Spinach as a base, add some fruit to counter the bitter, throw a protein on that and you got a kickass meal right there.


Anyway, hey! Welcome! Glad to see you with us! The goals all look good, and you have only a little time to work with. Should make things easier. Groovy!
