I stopped going to the BJJ gym about two weeks ago. Today would be the last day of my membership anyway. It’s mostly because I’m so uncomfortable stepping foot in the BJJ gym that I’d rather not be there. I keep hearing of some not great things happening there and I don’t want to be associated.
I’m still eating very healthy, and the weight is coming off slowly but surely. I keep thinking I should take up running or something because it’s free and easy to do. But I hate it, and it hurts my knee.
I went rock climbing (bouldering) last weekend with The American, and that was fun. My lats were a little sore, but they’re good now.
I’ve been biking to and from work all week as well! 8.5km each way with about 2/3 of that uphill on the way home. Which makes for a bit of a slow grind, but I’m sure in time my legs will thank me. My bike is a bit heavy, it’s a mountain bike/commuter hybrid type thing, and I’m looking to upgrade to a road bike at some point.
I’ve been using Google Tracks to time myself and I think I’m making pretty good time. It took me 32 mins to get to work this morning, and that was a slow grind up the first 1/3, and then on the 2/3 of going downhill I seemed to hit every possible red light. But I clocked 37km/hr (23mph) at one point, so that’s pretty neat.
The best part is that it takes me 30 mins to get to work via bike, and 45 mins on the bus. So I get an extra 15 mins of sleep! Because that’s what counts right?
It’s really more like… 15 mins at work to sponge bath and wash my face though. It’s been a bit hot, and it seems like as soon as I get off the bike I’m drenched in sweat.
So that’s where I’m at now. Biking about an hour a day, wishing I could do BJJ but can’t, contemplating running, and thinking about how I can lift weights without going to a gym.
Still trying my best to eat well.
