I’ve had kind of a crappy week so far, but I’m trying to be positive!
Saturday’s UFC 170 was awesome.
Sunday, I went to Gold’s Gym with Victoria in the morning. My leg was KILLING ME from where that super-nice-karate-guy nailed me in the thigh with his evil-spinning-downward-kick-of-evilness. -_- *tries not to be mad and bitter and fails*
I was able to use the elliptical and did upper-body weight lifting. But Sunday is one of my two my stairs (cardio) days, so I was annoyed I had to miss it. Then I hung out with Victoria and Brandon and tutored them for Japanese! Thanks for supporting me by paying me, guys! 😀 I hope you do well on your test.
My job situation is kind of freaking me out. I teach kids jiu-jitsu at Syndicate, which is fun and helpful to cover a few costs. I have a few sponsors, my newest being Herbal Papaya (which you may have seen me posting about), and now, Intimidation clothing, which I will talk about later. I would like some kind of writing job or part time thing that I can do at home….. any ideas anyone? basilisk875(at) yahoo.com
I know training is my job so I can win and make fight money. 😀 I have savings so I don’t need to count on donations (although they are always welcome) but if I have some major medical bill or accident….then it’s all gone in one hit.
SPEAKING OF INSURANCE I was on the phone with the health insurance company for a long time yesterday…. due to various mix-ups which I am super upset about, I lost my health insurance coverage and incurred a bunch of fees, so I had to apply for a new one, but I think I screwed that up, too. ~_~ So I gotta do something about that. *cries* I’m trying to lose weight, but I was so stressed out yesterday that I just ate a ton of pastries and now I feel like a fat turd. 🙁
I felt physically crappy Monday and Tuesday. I might be on the edge of coming down with something. Just fatigued and two body parts hurt. I skipped MMA practice and only hit the bag on Monday. I worked with Brittany on stuff because she came in early, which I felt accomplished about because I wanted her to improve in a few things. So that was positive! 😀
and then did mitts on Tuesday with Coach John Wood. I feel like I get better every time I have a session. I want a session every dayyyyyyyyyy but that’s not possible, of course. ~_~ But if it were!!!!!
I can’t sleep well because I’m not exercising hard. I’ve woken up at 3:45 AM the past three days and couldn’t get back to sleep.
I’m trying to be positive because I signed with Invicta, so I ‘m looking forward to fighting with them! I got a new sponsor, Intimidation Clothing, my mom FINALLY applied for a job! ~_~ She frustrates me with her inability to take action, and her passiveness. We are so different.
Yesterday, I had great mitts and then did some grappling, which was super fun other than being scratched very painfully in the eye. 🙁 That made issue #4 with me for the day. I was considering trying to do MMA sparring, but ended up being like “screw you guys, I’m going home.” *cartman voice* Brittany invited me out to Teriaki Madness with her brother and herself after training. That was nice. But I think that unless I eat organic chicken, I get stomach pains. :/ and gas. You don’t want to be around me when I have gas. I think I have IBS. It’s horrible. 🙁
Like, the other day, Victoria and Brandon fed me this mix of rice (okay), chicken (danger), raw onions (danger), beans (danger), tomato salsa (okay), oil (danger). I was like “holy….. oh great, thanks! :D” and I ate it ALL. and I had ZERO PROBLEMS. I was like WTF!!!! LOL Was it because everything was organic??? I had like 4 super problem foods for me and had no problems.
I’m so confused. 🙁
Or maybe Brandon is magical. yeah.
I feel super crappy again today, but I don’t want to skip training. ~_~ I can’t STAND letting myself down….GRRRRR and I can’t even talk to my mom about stuff, because she always tells me to not do stuff, rather than motivating me and encouraging me to go DO stuff. 🙁 and she freaks out when I tell her I’m in pain, so I have to hide it….. and her shoulder and neck are hurting.
Roxy: ice it.
Roxy: Why not?
Mom: I don’t like ice. It’s cold.
Roxy: It reduces inflammation and helps it feel better, so your body heals faster.
Mom:…. no. I don’t like the feeling of cold on my body…..
Roxy: Mom, do you want the pain to go away or not?
Mom: Yes….but ice won’t help.
Roxy: MOM I’m a professional athlete, I’m TELLING YOU how it will help you!
Mom: No. owwwww it hurtssssss
THEN SHUT UP ABOUT IT, I’m trying to forget my own pain! _< and I hate writing about it.... I'm pissing myself off. HAhahahahahaha
I'm looking for businesses who might want to sponsor me..... any one have any suggestions, please email me! basilisk875(at)yahoo.com
Thanks to Lacy at Dominate Your Game for the nutritional counseling.
And I got new posters! They’re kind of grainy. :/ I got them on Ebay. But they’re pretty and if I hang them up on the wall, I can’t tell about the quality. I’m trying not to spend money, but I’ve been a fan of Luis Royo since high school. 😀
