Ship’s Log–December 14th


Today was a non-stop go-go-go kind of day: an intense class in the morning, then a drive up to a family party celebrating my cousin’s recent marriage in the afternoon, followed by a white-knuckle drive home through the heavy snow. Spending time with family was worth the trip.

I ate things I wouldn’t normally eat. Cheese, specifically. Cheese and I are not friends anymore, but sometimes someone makes a nice veggie lasagna just for you, and then you eat it. It was tasty, but it came with a price, as usual. The cramping hit me a few hours later. It felt like my kidneys were trying to burst out through my lower back. I probably shouldn’t have followed it up with a slice of cake, but in my defense it was chocolate.

Today’s Fitness:

45 minutes of MMA class with lots of conditioning.


  • Whole wheat everything bagel with peanut butter
