Ship’s Log–October 27th


Six days left until the tournament. My anxiety is already building up. I have come away from almost all testings injured, and so this tournament has me worried out of my mind, primarily for my elbows. Stress combined with easy access to candy is certainly not going to help me make weight.

Oh…you may notice that I had eggs for breakfast. We’ve decided to try adding eggs back into our nutrition plan a few mornings a week after a recent study showed that an egg breakfast seemed to boost weight loss. I’m still keeping dairy at arms length, since that makes me feel like crap whenever I eat too much of it, but I’m willing to give eggs a chance.
