MISSING: One set of muscles!

Well, how far I have fallen in such a short amount of time…. my muscles seem non-existent. Where I was once “ripped” (ok, that’s a stretch), I am now looking a little squishy. I can actually feel myself getting slower and slower.

It feels like a Las Vegas magic act and I am the main event!


It looks like I am going to have to keep working hard and eating properly to maintain what I worked so hard to achieve. What kind of cruel world is this? I think this is extremely unfair and we humans shouldn’t have to work so damn hard to get a bit of muscle. I will be sure to take this one up with “the BIG GUY upstairs” – he’s got a lot of ‘splainin’ to do!

So despite my weak little arms not being of any use tonight, they did manage to get me through Rey’s punching combinations (which he added a few more special ones at the end). In this combination, I do 9 punches and repeat them 3x. There are now 6 different 9 punch combinations that I have to do 3x from start to finish. So (and I’m no ‘mathlete’), but that works out to be 162 punches in a row as fast as you can and must be completed in the proper order. Now that just sounds CRAZY!!

Sometimes Rey mixes it up and gets me to do one set of each of the 9 punch combo so I don’t get into just the habit of doing them the same way each time. I can actually smell the smoke coming off the gears in my brain because it is working so hard.

The best/worst part is… if I mess up one – I have to start at the beginning!

I need to start practicing every day because before I leave for summer holidays I want to be able to do my punches properly (right now it is looking sloppy because my hands are going faster than my brain is working). I want to be able to do them faster. And I want to be able to hit harder with each punch (at the moment – I’m only concentrating on just getting the right punch landed at the right spot in the combos!)

I hope my arms and my brain can keep up to Rey’s plans!
