The Return of Reese

So...I'm back! From my unofficial hiatus. It was totally unintentional but I only made it to the gym a few times last month. First, I lost a week due to skin allergy testing that resulted in me not being allowed to sweat lest all the disgusting chemicals plastered to my back mixed together into a toxic mess. Then I had some major projects to finish up for work and was so stressed out that I couldn't even conceive of taking an hour or two to train, even with the gym being just 15 minutes away. And then...well, okay, I admit it. I GOT LAZY. There, I said it. I got out of my routine and became an unmotivated couch potato, only hitting the gym four times in the space of 3-4 weeks. It was like a flashback to my past life...and it was totally unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN.

Luckily, this story has a happy ending. As of two weeks ago, I got my lazy ass back on track and have picked up my routine again. Of course, every muscle in my body atrophied during this stupid month of sin and I feel like a total fatass for the moment, so I'm building back up to where I was a month before. It sucks. People...if you're ever thinking of taking time off from training and you don't have the luxury of an excuse involving broken bones or surgically altered body parts, don't do it! It's not worth the misery, regret and total shame!

Anyway, it feels great to be back on the mats and working my ass off once more. There are a lot of new faces lately and there's even a new chick in the mix who beat me up during kickboxing today, so I should have some fun new stories soon. Thanks for bearing with me during this embarrassing time and man, it's good to be blogging again. I had no idea everyone at the gym was so fucking concerned by my lack of updates but rest easy, guys, it's business as usual from here on out.


  1. Do you wear earguards? Couch tomato.

  2. I do not. But I'm starting to feel like I should, considering my ears start to hurt every time I get knocked in the head, even when I'm attempting to block :P

  3. I agree. I've gotten fairly lazy as well. My ever rotating schedule does NOT help. I end up oversleeping - going to bed at 2-3 am and waking up at noon. Only problem - day class is at 11am. >_< Evening class I'm MUCH better about getting to, when I work mornings. ah sigh.

    1. The only "day" class I go to is the Saturday morning 11 am kickboxing...and then I'm done for the day lol. All other classes are at 6 pm or later. There are low key midday open mats a few days a week but I've never had the time to go and there are usually only a few people anyway. 11 am on Saturdays is definitely not as hard now as it was two months ago though!
