There's a photo on Google+? I posted it on facebook, which is what got a ton of buzz... could barely keep up with it.

Eggs and bacon for breakfast, leftover pork/cauli rice for lunch, dinner was these amazing bacon-wrapped chicken thighs, also had some chai..

I didn't work out, was so exhausted and literally fell asleep on the couch while getting ready to change into my gi, I sat down for a sec... as someone who doesn't nap, this means I needed another day off.

I am getting cupping/acupuncture today to try to get a bit of balance and help me deal with the work pressure...and also I'm so sore for no reason, probably stress. Hoping to relax a bit today and catch up before another crazy week starts.

Green eggs for breakfast, chicken soup for lunch, went out to Brasa for dinner after screwing up Todd's dinner (I took the crockpot out but forgot to turn it on) so I decided to take him out to make up for it. We split some pulled pork and fried catfish, plus small sides (yams and andouille and potato salad), plus some cornbread and a flourless torte.

Missed BJJ because I didn't want him to have to wait til 9 to eat dinner b/c he hates that. I did do my rings workout, which was 1 minute total of top position, a bunch of hollow body pushups, and 5 5-second tuck positions, to prep for L-sits.

I got really strong cupping yesterday, which helped, and finally slept, so I feel a bit more human... I made a list of all my deadlines for next week and a schedule, so should be able to handle things better next week.

Yesterday breakfast was some awesome kale/sweet potato/tomato/egg type thing, then a really late lunch/early dinner which was beef stew with more sweet potatoes, tomatoes, onions, etc. and dried apricots (this recipe, but without squash: http://chriskresser.com/argentinian-carbonada-3.) Then we watched the fights with friends; had some beer and lots of caffeine and some potato chips and corn chips.

Workout was a ton of BJJ at open mat, which went really well for being out for a week, I feel like I'm moving really well and even tapped out a blue belt, though I did sufficiently get my butt kicked as usual as well; rolled with a couple from Canada who were visiting and they both had the exact same game, which was funny, and it was annoying to know escapes but not get them to work (like hooking the leg as a mount defense, etc. etc.) I think I rolled with 8 or 9 people total and I also have been having more success breaking grips, though grip fighting is kind of a PITA and feels so pointless sometimes since they just regrip, but it's better than not breaking grips at all.

Oops, haven't posted in forever... and I took the week off from BJJ b/c I've been so slammed with work (which is a good thing!), so here's what I did on the rings; week 5.

Tuesday and Saturday
-front scale leg lifts and squats (1 leg lift per side and 2 squats = 1 rep; 5 sets of this)
-10 reverse ring pull-ups
-5 sets of 15 sec. hollow body hold/15 second Superman
-30 second hollow body hold

Thursday
-2 min total top holds
-5 X 5 hollow body pushups, last rep in each set at tempo

5 sets of 5-10 second L-sits (or tucks if you start to fail)

Week 6 of the rings program:

3 X 10 second top position holds on the rings
3 X 10 second front scales per leg
5 hollow body push-ups at tempo (20 seconds total)
5 X 3 reverse row sit-backs
3 X 10 sec hollow body holds

2 more weeks left in the ring program and I've been neglecting BJJ but hope to go tomorrow. It's been like a week and a half.
