So, things have been busy around here. I'm training to compete in a wrestling tournament in March ...yeah, I know, crazy. I miss the competition sometimes, and I think this caught me in a moment of weakness ...or stupidity. So I'm back at gym 3-4 days a week, the dojo at least twice a week and watching what I eat ...because the top 2 weight classes are 205 and 265. No way I'm gong up agains the big boys - I'd get squeeshed like leetel bug; so I have to work my way bac to under 205. I was there last fall, right before I tore my ankle up and stopped working out for 3 months. So I started my program last week - this is probably going to evolve into a weekly update of how it's going. So far, pretty well. I've modified my gym routine to tone rather than build and cut my diet: portion sizes are about half of what they were, and snacks are but a fond memory. HOWEVER, I have managed to go from 217 last friday to 213.5 today. Not bad for the first week that I've been serious about it. Now I just have to keep it up for another 6 weeks (tourney day is March 27) and hope that I don't make a fool out of myself!
