Rise and shine 4am Tuesday 19th of January. I jumped on the scale and was 84.5kg. I feel more relaxed as it has been 2-3 days at the same weight, despite the fact that I slightly over ate yesterday.
5.-6.30 BJJ: drills and takedowns
Breakfast: yesterday left over, chilli con carne with rice and a white coffee.
Lunch: yesterday left over, chilli con carne with rice and broccoli and cauliflower and green tea.
Snack: Salad with pilchard, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and olives, white coffee.
Dinner: tortillas with cod filets, onions and cabbage and mayonnaise sauce, a banana and dark chocolate.
A good day, as I spoke to Luke my training partner to explain the bad training I had the evening before and we worked on the things I did wrong. I also had an acupuncture session to fight niggles. I felt quite relaxed the whole day. In regard to food, I am still tempted but don't feel that hungry during the day. Nevertheless, if I leave more than 4 hours between meals then I am starving.
A relaxing day in general, to know that the competition is so close helps. With today behind, I just have a double session on Wednesday and my last BJJ session on Thursday morning.
Nervous? not as much as I was, I know it is part of the game as I have been there before. The nerves are not bad as long as I remember that in the end it is me versus another guy. I am better really, just want to get starting...
