    I'll watch it before a tournament if I ever compete in Kobudo. :D

    I need to revisit that series, though. 80's martial arts movies only get better with age.

    Saturday, 28 Apr 18

    0700: Breakfast
    - 2 slices whole grain toast
    - peanut butter

    1000: Snack
    - smoothie

    0800-1700: Tournament
    - 2 exhibition full-contact matches
    - 2 competitive full-contact matches
    Note: I ended up officiating all morning and most of the afternoon. I participated in two rounds of a 10-man Kumite for a friend and Dojo mate's Shodan promotion. He is well deserving of the promotion, and I was very honoured to be part of it all. Unfortunately, I lost both of my competitive matches. I did learn a lot about myself and found some areas that I need to work on. Back to the drawing board, as they say. I'll be back again next year.

    1730: Dinner
    - steak
    - baked potato
    - Caesar salad
    - whisky

    Note: If there is a silver lining to this dark cloud of defeat, I elevated my training quite a bit and really grew as a martial artist while I was preparing for this tournament. At the risk of sounding cliche, it's about the journey; not the destination. No where to go but up.
    Osu!

    I've got all the time in the world for these statements - For acknowledging and awarding a friends triumphs, despite the outcome of your own endeavours, and for recognising the 'wins' which you did gain, not just on the the day, but on your recent approach to training too - Kudos!

    Thanks for that, Travess. It means a lot.

    I'll be out of town for a couple of weeks to attend my sister's wedding. I will start the log again when I get home.

    I'm going to start a weight routine, so I look forward to writing about my experiences with that when I get back.

    I had a great vacation, but it was a less than stellar couple weeks for exercise and nutrition. I ate some bad food and drank my far share of alcohol.

    I was going to order a pizza last night for dinner because I had such little food in the house, and was too lazy to go shopping. When it came time to eat, I was too lazy to put on pants and leave the house and too cheap to pay a delivery fee. I ended up making a relatively healthy curry dish with the limited food I had on hand: chick peas, rice, veggies, tomato soup, and spices I brought back from India. That's a positive step back in the right direction, I guess. :D

    I'm going to use this weeks to get back into the Dojo get myself on a weight lifting program.

    Welcome back to it training zone :D
    It's always good when you can knock some decent food out of what you have and save the takeaway option :)

    Nothing wrong with the occasional lapse in diet and training, particularly if it's on holiday.

    I was just introduced to KB High Pulls at the end of last year, by my brother (although I do them 1 arm at a time, and snatch back, rather than up) and I must say that the mechanics of the move has already started to help with my grappling strength - Wish I'd known about them sooner.

    P.s. Nice to see you 'logging again mate.
