Tues 8:00 pm BJJ… Then sleep!


Everyone keeps saying that the sleeping will get better… 4 hours a sleep every night or other night kinda wears you down… oh well. 6 months is the magic number and its all worth it. Just to see him smile and giggle at me. May 2nd is the next tourney I do want to compete in… Master Division obviously and yes Minni. The Toronto International Open is a no go do to traveling with the baby and time to invest… Minni is only 6 to 8 hours away.

4 to 5 nights a week of BJJ is OK I guess… I may have to take a few of those nights to work on just conditioning… the lack of sleep does wear you down physically and mentally. I hear, I still do train more then others in the same situation… must be doing something right, or wrong lol… my loving wife is patient… BJJ is about having patients. Maybe she needs to start training lol.
