It was a holiday today! In 660 BC – Traditional date for the foundation of Japan by Emperor Jimmu. So “National Foundation Day.”
I woke up at 4:45, as always. -_-;; I was sooo sore from yesterday’s double training that I could barely sit up.
Today I rested !!! in my apartment all morning. It was great. I watched Naruto, took a nap, etc. The only problem was that I get hungry and can’t stop eating. I ate sooo many vegetables trying to eat low-calorie food. I finished off one whole package of renkon @_@ (crunchy lotus root) and konyaku and carrots, and then beef and a whole head of lettuce and kamaboko… I bet that if you add all the calories together, I should have just eaten a rice ball and be done with it. –; Anyway, kind of bummed because my friend cancelled plans with me on the account of not feeling well. I could have taught bonus lessons. Oh well, the friend is more important.
Then I taught one bonus lesson in the afternoon and then went to meet Mana in the evening. My friend from my junior year abroad in college! 😀 She lives in Omori, which is ironic since my gym is in Omori. Mana lives in a share-house. It reminded me of a college dorm hall! Everyone has their own tiny private rooms, but share the dining room, kitchen, living room and bathrooms. I could never ever live there. I went through that, done that, now am enjoying my quiet privacy.
We made and ate nabe, a kind of soup. Only veggies and fish and Tonyu goma soup broth. I am sooo full.
I think today is the last day where it’s ‘okay’ to eat a little extra. I was so excited about getting close to my weight, but from now on, I have to make sure I’m strict. Wow, it’s almost two weeks before my fight! SO excited!…Details
