Ship’s Log–October 14th


Apologies for skipping a few days. I haven’t been feeling well at all. Saturday I nearly blacked out during a mild sparring session in class, not because my partner hit me, but because I just gassed out. I spent the rest of the three day weekend resting and trying to recover from whatever bug this is that’s getting to me.

Mentally, I’ve been really down, too. I’m struggling to cut my calories back enough to actually make some headway towards my weight loss goal, mainly because of the afternoon snacking.

Today I got back in the saddle fully. I’m still a little drained and coughing off and on, but I’m much better than I had been Saturday. I’m going to keep my daily training to one session a day until I am 100%.

Distance to goal weight: 21.2 pounds.
