Actually, I’ve been training for this all summer, and some of spring too.
I’m going to take the test with my uke John, the same I took blue belt with, and I’m going to be his uke for his brown belt test too.
The date is set to September 3, so it’s pretty close now. We’ve come a long way, and the way is much more important than the test itself.
I look forward to getting this overwith, not (just) because I hate tests, but also because I can see so many things I’d like to work with in my jiu jitsu, and right now, I have to focus on just this one thing.
Well, I’m mostly at my target weight, but I could still lose another 2 kgs and not be skinny. 81.2 kg was my morning weight today.
I’ve stopped eating candy, so I’m rather desugared now, though I still enjoy cakes and ice cream. After a while, I now don’t even want to drink coke and other sodas. I’m pretty sure that’s what brought me to a stable level around 82 kg for the last month (in spite of vacationing and such, which’d normally mean I’d gain a couple of kg) and now below that. Yay!
I reached my goal of weighing 85 kilos on May 26. This morning, I had 84.1 on the scales, and I’m pretty stable around 84-85. This is great!
