Happy new year and all that!

So happy to be back home, sleeping in my own bed!  But husband and I had a fantastic two weeks visiting his parents, aunt/uncle, and extended family in Vegas. 

Too much eating of course... but I did get some training in at Drysdale's gym, which helped a teeny bit.  Many thanks to James, Aaron and Sonny for helping me feel welcome and teaching some great classes.  I worked on a transition from butterfly to single leg X guard, two sweeps from there, the berimbolo, and the ninja roll among other things.  At least I got moving.

Today, back at the office and phew, back in the gym too.  My crossfit-esque class kicked my butt at lunch and I am determined to attend consistently 5 days a week.  It will take a serious effort to lose all the extra breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks I accumulated.  *sigh*

Hope you had a great new years with loved ones and are already back on the mats.  I have a couple more reviews coming up-- the Tatami basic gi, Emily Kwok and Stephan Kesting's new series on fighting a bigger stronger opponent, and Drysdale's new nogi instructional too.

Welcome home :)
