On Saturday, my body was too sore and tired to be productive at training, so after working 8AM to 6 PM back to back lessons, I went shopping and then went home. I tried to go to bed early, around 10 PM, and I woke up at the crack of dawn (again) on Sunday. u_U It’s rough…I was in the twilight zone ALL DAY. I think I even had ice cream in the morning before work just to get some energy.
After work, I tried something I’ve tried before: Turn off my computer and cell phone at 8, and read for an hour before going to bed. I wondered if maybe my mind is too stimulated, so although I’m falling asleep because I’m tired, I’m initially too stimulated so I wake up to soon. I did that IN CONJUNCTION with eating some cottage cheese before bed, thinking that the fat will help hold me over and keep me from waking up starving as I usually do.
I slept for 6 hours. 😀 Coincidence? 😀
Monday, I went to the morning pro-practice. I sparred about 4 rounds: BJ twice, Wicky, and Takeda-san/takada-san? (he mumbled his name at introductions) from Yokohama dojo (whereever that is?) but he was cool. Later, I got advice from BJ, and of course, Katsumura-san. Gah, I’m disappointed I have bad habits. But I was happy to get the feedback! I walked away thinking that, and then realized, “Wait a second. That was all new advice. What about the stuff from last time? I had been focusing on these other points.” So I went back and said, “What about this and this, that you said I was doing last time?” He goes, “Oh, that got better.”
!!!!! ヾ(´∇｀)ノﾞ !!!!
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Really? Did I really just improve at striking somewhat? Even some small iota of improvement? Some miniscule micro fraction of an improvement??
WEEEE, I say. WEEEEE
o(^▽^o)(o^▽^)o *dance dance*
I did some of the 10:30 class, but various things started hurting, so I pooped out half way. Sorry, other dude who came. 😡 I didn’t spar with him… I held mitts for him, and I’m wondering if that’s why my shoulder is KILLING ME NOW. -_- I dunno if I can train today…
Various things were sore, so I skipped evening training. ;_; BJJ… Buri-chan (Brittany) got to go. I wanna train with her. *pout* But I was happy about my morning. XD
I tried my method of cottage cheese and reading again, and SLEPT SIX AND A HALF HOURS!! Exhausted from training, though. Did my day care class (may the universe bless all Day Care workers who takes care of our children while you’re at work). I sang “Old McDonalds” like ten times that day. lol Then worked evening. I LOVED that young husband and wife charter group. The husband liked Dragon Ball Z, and the wife liked One Piece, so when I was teaching them physical characteristics, I sketched “Goku” for an example of “spiky hair” and Piccolo for “bald.”
😀 Talked to Dad, ate cottage cheese, read, went to bed at 11 PM…and woke up at 3:30 AM. (＝｡＝) nooooooo Why why why? Why why why? (ref : Peelander-z)
