“I got nine lives, cat’s eyes
Abusin’ every one of them and runnin’ wild…” -AC/DC
For the past month, while I’ve been waiting for my hand to heal enough to go back to Jiu-Jitsu class, what I’ve been mainly doing for exercise is baking and eating cookies, so when I return to training tonight, I’ll be starting my BJJ New Year at 130 pounds (but at least my new gi is black, so it’s slimming ;). My thumb is still bothering me, and I can’t hold onto anything heavy, but I’m just going to have to figure out a way to work around it, because I’ve started to become comfortable with being lazy, and that has to end, or I may never return from the darkness. I tried to look at the time off from training as a kind of vacation, but I didn’t really enjoy it, and I know I’ll probably suffer in class tonight, but I’m ready to get back to the grind for 2017!
