Ship’s Log–November 1st


Today was all about loosening the sore muscles and trying to shed a little of that extra water weight. Weight loss for tomorrow’s tournament is pointless now. There is no one else in either the division I am in or in the division below me. In fact, I would have to lose more than 20 pounds to get to the next populated division below me, and that was not realistic in the few weeks between my last race and tomorrow’s event.

There is another women in a division just a bit above me who is also the lone competitor in her division. We’ll probably wind up facing off in the ring. I train with her several times a week, so it won’t be quite the same experience as competing against an unknown opponent…more like an exhibition match with a friend. At least this way I am not as likely to have any of my limbs ripped off.

Distance to goal weight: 22.1 pounds
