Back onto the mat.

We’re having our first jujitsu class tonight, the first in many months. I can’t remember the last time I trained regularly.

Actually, yes I can. Before Covid.

Since then it’s been very intermittent. Even if it hadn’t been for Ms Rona getting up in everyone’s grill, I doubt I could have trained much the last 12 months anyway. I seemed to either be sick, or injured or recovering from surgery most of the time.

An old friend passes.

I finally had to throw away my favourite pair of jeans yesterday. A $29 pair of blue straight leg denim champions from Uniqlo. Man, that was hard. I wore them to Supanova over the weekend, our last outing together. They served me well, of course. But they were literally falling apart and they did not survive the wash on the gentle cycle in the machine when I got home.

Please pour one out for my favourite old jeans. I have never had such value out of a $29 purchase.

Made a mistake.

Bought a new body fat measuring scale.

Oh boy.

The last twelve months have done some damage. On the upside, I’m down two and half kilograms in a month thanks to not drinking.

Downside, I don’t think I can ever drink again.
