Not How I Planned

"I understand there's a guy inside me who wants to lay in bed, smoke weed all day and watch cartoons and old movies. My whole life is a series of stratagems to avoid, and outwit that guy"

-Anthony Bourdain

Getting Out of my Slumber

Saturday night, I had food poisoning. Eight hours of vomiting following by a day of sleep. Monday was spent hydrating, eating bread, fruit, and some instant noodles. The pharmacy had given me some hydration packs as well as medicine which helped some. Tuesday, I felt like I was just being lazy. I went out and ate some lunch but followed a similar pattern as the past two days. Watching Youtube videos, drinking water, and sleeping a ton. Not a very motivating few days.

Prepping for the Fight

A Fight?

All of this happened before my amateur fight on Saturday. I've lost a bit of weight. My energy is coming back but the hardest thing to get back is the little bit of discipline that I was building up. Sluggishness and lethargy have been my two big moods for the past few days. With all of this, I won't give up and I won't pull out of the fight.

The Prep

I simply plan on taking a single Muay Thai class each day. Running each day. Doing some light Gym Ring work again. The most important thing will be eating some safe and healthy food to get my energy levels back up.

Reflecting on Three Days

Even with three days passing, I still managed to edit a video, write this post, and make an Instagram post. It has been interesting being left alone with my thoughts for this amount of time. Makes me want to return back to my meditation practice that I learned in China.

Man, so much I want to do. So little discipline.
