I can go back to Karate and do katas and weapons, but still no grappling or sparring until next year. It’s more than I expected, so I’m happy to be able to start those things again.

A few days ago I decided to stop drinking energy drinks and soda, so yesterday I finished the two I had left at work- Rockstar No Carb and Monster Lo-Carb. I have to live differently instead of relying on an energy drink to get through the day. I big part is also the taste, and I will miss that, but I have to live cleaner.
