I win by losing

Team Lutter at the Matshark tournament yesterday. Of course, after I rolled. They never take a picture before I get all sweaty and gross. I also may have forgotten my sock at home, so it didn’t get to go on an adventure yesterday. I wonder if I can take a bunch of them today to open mat and put them in BJJ positions.

Nah! Too much work.

Results? Meh. I had two matches and I got silver. I really wanted to win and ended up in an Americana (the last picture shows the fun) and tapped a little later than I should have. It was my floppy, so I wasn’t able to compete in the Absolute. Some ice, a compression sleeve, and the IF unit and I should be good to go by Monday.

It’s been hot and I couldn’t train for about a week and a half. This could be a problem if I want to compete during the summer. (Unless we get mats and turn our living room into a mini dojo.) Not that it excuses not being good enough to win.  Besides, the girl I lost to was like 19. Hello 22 year age difference! That’s an excuse I might be able to live with.

I so want to prove a point. That even with the NMO and the floppy that I can do this. That I can be good. There are people missing limbs that win gold on an international level for Pete’s sake!  I really get frustrated by my limitations. I’m not looking for comments on this, I just want to say a big EFF YOU to the situation getting in the way of my plans.

 Soooo… anyway! No sock knitting or spinning yesterday. I’m going to see what the day holds before I commit to doing anything besides going to the pool and napping.

Happy Sunday y’all! What are you doing today?

p.s. Texas competed in two divisions and came home with a Silver and a Bronze. And a hurt elbow. At least it is his left and we can still hold hands. :D

  1. You’ve got a good reason for hurting. I did housework and I’m in pain. How out of shape is that!?! o.0
    Nice that you still can hold hands. :)

  2. Silver sounds great! In fact, it sounds wonderful to have won something, no? If I competed the way you do, I’d be in bed for a week. I hate limitations and that nothing can be done about them. Whine all you want, but know you’re a winner, at least to me.
