Jan 11-16 I was in Whistler BC.  An annual ski trip that I take with a group of… gentlemen.  The conditions were fabulous.  Tons of snow the first 2 days and then blue bird the last 2.  Here’s some pics.

Off To A… Start

Well I guess it’s a new year.  I’m hoping it will be a good one. It’s starting out blah. I feel absolutely horrible both physically and mentally. I can’t stand being in my own fat ass body. Ughhh. So weak willed.  I’ve been working out really hard lately but that makes little difference when you constantly shovel food in to your mouth.

I haven’t done much BJJ in the last 2 weeks.  There just really hasn’t been much around with the Christmas holidays. I went to one open mat on Dec 28th.  That was a pretty good time. It was a small group. Nevertheless I got in some quality rolls.

Whether it’s your first or your fifth, prepping to head out to the hills is where your season starts. There can be an…
