My girls at The Big Apple on Saturday. Gold on the left, silver on the right and the Boogeyman in the middle (she didn’t compete). So proud of them!!! And I miss training with them. :-(
For all you cat lovers.
Got my ass back to BJJ! And it wasn’t nearly as disorienting as I expected. There was a new white belt (fresh meat!) about 15 years old or so. He’s not that much bigger than me so that was a nice change of pace. Tried a triangle and a couple of arm bars on him. I really thought I had the second one locked but that little toughie didn’t tap. Anyway, seems like nice kid. I’m sure we’ll be rolling again soon. I rolled with Sara and we practiced some stand up (she’s competing in the Big Apple in two weeks!) which is always good practice for me.
It was a good class although, of course, my ribs are hurting again. Sucky mcsuck! I hate to think about it but I may have to take another extended break from BJJ. :-(
In other news I finally crossed the 95 lb threshold. Now all I have to do is cling to it. And if all goes according to plan I’ll be at the 100 lb mark by the end of June.
Got this message from one of the purple belts at our school. Awww. I miss them too! It’s been almost two weeks. I’m starting to get strange urges to choke out random strangers on the street. But that’s not socially acceptable behavior, right? Gotta get back in there this weekend.
That was last week. Hoping for a better week this week. Did legs this morning cuz, y’know, I can’t let myself go completely just cuz I haven’t been getting to class. I brought my gear to work even though chances are slim to none that I’ll get out of here in time. But just in case the cosmos decides to smile on me I’m prepared.
It’s funny how people seem to forget over the winter that I actually have muscles. The first time I wore a short sleeved shirt to work last week my coworkers couldn’t shut up about my arms. Relax yourselves, kiddies. It’s called weightlifting and clean eating. You too can have guns like these. :-D

In the last few weeks I’ve had requests for articles on…
I’m assuming this applies to the “older ladies” as well. I knew those massages were a good idea.
