Write a little something about yourself in here (one or two lines, nothing frat). I'll do my best to cheer ya up.

 

I'm going to make the OG love again! 8==)--

You usually try your hardest at whatever you're doing, and if you don't, you don't say that you did.

I blew out my knee a couple months back and miss training really badly. I don't feel like myself without mma and bjj.

I’m 37. Knee and shoulder issues continue to bother me. Can I still trane? Is it too late. Am I an old loser?

Hahaha. True. I ballooned to 227 about 4 months ago. I’ve been boxing and doing cardio eating really good. Down to 205!

Nice! We'll keep up the good work man. I'm up around 185 since I hurt my knee. I've just started doing some long walks and light jogs. 

Hoping to be back down around 165-170 in the next couple months. The few fights I had were all at 145. 

 

Think my fighting days are behind me because I'm not willing to give it all the time it needs foe me to do my best. Thinking about doing a bjj tournament or something when I heal.

So the knee.. Did you get an MRI? I had them look at mine. They were going to send me for an MRI. Told them I was paying cash. They wanted 4K just for the MRI. F that. I can’t afford it right now. So when I train I put a narly brace on it tight AF.

It’s very easy to gain weight when you are injured. Got to be on a strict diet my man. Sounds like you are on the right track.

In this day and age with medicine and surgery,  take time to heal...you will be back on the mats enjoying your training in no time!

Age doesn't mean a thing. There have been people fighting mma in their 50s and 60s.

 

Exercise and eat healthy....you can still do it.

You are still alive, and as long as you are, you can push and get the dream job you want....or at least for the time being, reassess your current job, and see if it was under your nose all along.

I was chasing a keto diet again....did it on and off for 5 years. 

Saw my blood pressure was high (see previous thread), been eating pure foods...fruits and veggies...no preservatives or caffeine.

Blood pressure is at a much better place (averaging 132 / 72....versus 155 / 85)...also lost 6 pounds and significantly trimmed around my stomach area.

 

Cut the preservatives and caffeine. Eat fruits and veggies.

Hope you all have a great weekend. 

 

Every day you have the opportunity to wake up and breathe, is a blessing. 

 

I gotta work tonight...would rather be home with family, but I'm gonna grind hard and make sure some lives are saved through organ transplant.
