Missing the gym

So I'm midway through my self-imposed hiatus from The Wat. And it's starting to suck. Big time.
I keep catching myself going through combinations in head and making mean faces in the mirror like I'm about to face an opponent in the ring... Sad and weird. But true.
I miss everything: working out, sweating, jumping and even double jumping. Mostly I miss my muay thai family. Definitely miss fighting and getting ready for a fight.
What makes it worse is that EVERYBODY keeps asking when my next fight is going to be! To which I bow my head, shrug my shoulders and say: "I don't know. I'm taking a break for now"... I HATE IT!!!! hahaha
But like I said I'm halfway through. Focus now and reap the benefits of hard labor later. yup yup. And I will rejoice by pummeling some poor soul with my fists and leg kicks to her head... Ohe!! lol (I have problems... I know :)

Healthy eating

I made this soup today and it looked so yummy that I felt like sharing. And I remembered: "I have a blog! Right. I have to share it then"
First let me say that I know I haven't been writing much. That's because there isn't much to write about right now. I'm cutting back on my training to take care of some things for work until June. I will be in the gym tomorrow however. I will be working on my double jumps yes yes...

Back to my soup. Doesn't the kale look so appetizing? Yes yes and indeed it was. Here's the recipe:

Have you been eating something healthy to celebrate the soon to come spring season? Or should I say slow to come spring season??? That's why this soup comes just in time before it's too hot to enjoy it. Bon appetit!
