Making the Cut: Week 7

I think I mentioned this a couple of weeks ago, but traveling makes proper diet and fitness very difficult.  Last week I wrote this blog from an airplane on my way to Las Vegas to do some interviews at gyms and go to UFC 178.  Here is where the issue lies; I had #GreyHat Dwight Joseph with me and I was in the gym 3 times in those few days. We were at elite gyms and everyone was well beyond my level of 1 week of boxing, so I spent my time watching others practice recording video and taking photos. Needless to say I didn’t get much exercise in, aside from walking probably 10 miles a day. Las-Vegas-Walking I also didn’t eat very well, if I ate at all.  I started off the trip fairly well, not eating for several hours on end does crazy things to you and by the end of the trip I didn’t really care anymore what I ate.  I did get back with a renewed sense of desire to train though, and for the second week in a row, I’ve made it to Premier Combat Center to train boxing with Danny Molina.  I will say he is a pretty awesome coach especially for me, it was kinda a surreal experience. I’ve started training mainly to learn the sport better, but I actually could see myself competing in some way shape or form during class yesterday.

Tip of the week –

fitbit-force-frontSo I went out and bought one of those FitBit trackers, I really did enjoy it for a few weeks.  But I don’t think its a great solution for everyday use.  That being said, I would have loved to have had it while I was in Las Vegas to track how much I walked.  So if you can get one for a descent price >$50, I’d jump on it, it’s just another great tool to help you track your fitness level.
