When I came back to the gym in America, I was nervous to train. Sounds crazy, right? I mean these people are basically family to me and I was nervous to train with them? Well, I was. I knew I wanted to fight again, but I wasn’t sure when. I was used Keatchatchi, to having […]Read more "I let myself be… a ninja turtle."
I’ve been back for just about 6 months and the little tug on my heart when I look at pictures of Thailand hasn’t gone away. I get awful butterflies when I watch fights or see an endless stream of Thai selfies. Wait what- awful butterflies? Yeah. Awful. That fluttering feeling you get when you want […]Read more "I remembered how to write again…"
I am a lucky girl. I have had so many amazing experiences and opportunities I never dreamed I would be able to pursue. I owe it all to my family. So this year and every year, I am thankful so very thankful for them. But this year in particular, I am not only thankful for […]Read more "What I am thankful for"
I just officially booked my trip to Phuket for my October break. WOOHOO! I am so excited to be training at Sinbi Muay Thai for 2 weeks and 3 days. This will be my first time training at a camp for more than a few days. Dan will be heading to Koh Lanta to train […]Read more "Phuket Bound"
As I write this I am downing a bag of DELICIOUS banana chips. Part of my eatwhateveriwant phase of training. Although, I will regret it in 15 minutes when I go train. I don’t know if banana chips count as a preworkout food. Anyway, August 14th. Alright, I can do […]Read more "Lesson learned: Red bull gives me too many wings."
It’s been way too long since my last post. I have made Dan promise to keep me in check; blog once a week. Since I haven’t written in a while, I have to go backward to move forward. So much has happened that, too much has happen to not go back and share. In my […]Read more "Stepping backward to move forward"
This was a rough 4 weeks or so. I bounced back and forth between having confidence to wondering whether or not I should even fight. I started training again after maybe 2 weeks off; from crazy travels to being sick, I needed the time. Getting back into it wasn’t difficult, but getting myself […]Read more "Fight Number 2"
I walked away from my opponent and towards the opposite corner. I noticed my trainers jumping in the ring and one had water, so I changed directions. Was the fight over? Did I just win? One of the last nights of training before my fight, the promoter told us he would be taking us to […]Read more "Reflecting on my 1st fight… I really fought in Thailand.. wait, what? Real life?"
and I have battled them to complete this entry. The past two weeks have been absolutely insane. Let’s kick it off with Dan’s fight on December 27th. Crazy emotion filled night. We got home around midnight and ate dinner, got to bed around 1:30am. Up bright around 730am, I needed to train before we headed […]Read more "Here’s an update. On a side note, ants now live in my computer"
Every time I sit down to update everyone on life over here in Thailand, I only think of my upcoming fight. I have two entries half way written. I end up stopping and googling some fights on youtube or looking up clinch techniques. It’s my first fight. I don’t feel like I’ve trained hard […]Read more "I’m going to have pancakes in Chiang Mai tomorrow and a beer, maybe two. But first, I fight tonight."
