I competed this weekend at US Grappling’s submission-only tournament, taking a gold medal in my weight division and in the women’s advanced absolute division. Highlight video:

Well, there’s a fair bit of stuff to talk about. First of all, those who delight in physical humour will love this story. During my very first rep of medicine ball smashes for my conditioning circuit last night, I chose my medicine ball poorly and gave myself a fat lip when the ball bounced up […]

My awesome new job

April 13th, 2009 by OMGBFFA | 6 Comments

A couple of weekends ago, Mistress Krista and I visited John Berardi and Amanda Graydon at Precision Nutrition HQ. If you get this group of people together, three things are bound to happen: We will eat. We will train. We will talk about eating and training. I got to work out with my boss and […]

I competed in the Copa Ontario tournament this past Saturday and took gold. I won my first match by armbar against Lindsay, one of Omar’s blue belts, in 26 seconds, beating my previous “fastest submission” record by 12 seconds: …and my second match (also by armbar) against my friend Nicole in about 1:50. I hate […]

The Eh Team: Up Close and Personal

March 31st, 2009 by OMGBFFA | 5 Comments

John came into town today to speak at an event, and Geoff met us at Bang Fitness so we could train together. I saw John bust out some pretty impressive lifts, and Geoff spent his time helping another of John’s athletes learn to love his serratus anterior. That’s Geoff on your left (yes, in a […]

I don’t know.

I don't know.

First, a shout out to some grappling girls I’m very fond of! The Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championship was this past weekend in California. My online and real-life friends Jen W, Jen F, Addie, Hillary, Lisa, Rachel and Val competed and tool home medals. I hear the divisions were HUGE this year – blue belt lightweight had […]

Changing your life

March 21st, 2009 by OMGBFFA | 4 Comments

I’m wrapping up a “moderate” training and nutrition week with a refeed day (high carb – about 45% of my intake), some sprints and MECCA‘s competition class. I feel pretty good about what I’ve accomplished over the last three weeks: Geoff says he’s pleased with my lifts (did I mention I benched 135 for three […]

I’m 150.6 now. Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days. I have been busy quitting my job and changing my life.

I spent the afternoon at Body Blitz falling asleep in the body-temperature water and then came home and made sundubu, which my roommate declared to be “really fuckin’ good”. It WAS very tasty…. Weighed in at 151.4. Less than 20 lbs to go.

On eating

March 14th, 2009 by OMGBFFA | 1 Comment

There are other countries, such as Italy and France, that decide their dinner questions on the basis of such quaint and unscientific criteria as pleasure and tradition, eat all manner of “unhealthy” foods, and, lo and behold, wind up actually healthier and happier in their eating than [North Americans]. We show our surprise at this […]

Fasting day #2

March 12th, 2009 by OMGBFFA | Comments Off

I survived fasting day #2 with no problems. I was okay during my conditioning circuit, so I decided to stick around for a little light rolling afterwards. I performed fine, but when I got home I had a little blood sugar moment. I even had crazy nightmares that involved plane crashes and confusion. I should […]

How the hell do you do this every day?

“Hard week”

March 10th, 2009 by OMGBFFA | 5 Comments

In hindsight I feel like I barely worked out at all last week. It was supposed to be a light week for recovery, but the volume was way lower than I am used to. This week, however, is designated as a hard week, with a lot more interval training and conditioning, plus another hour of […]

Last day of first week

March 8th, 2009 by OMGBFFA | 3 Comments

Yesterday was my high-carb refeed day. I feel yucky today. This is the last day of my “easy” week, which is good because I just don’t feel like I trained very much last week. Next week is marked “hard’ and it involves a lot more conditioning and longer strength sessions, but with the same diet […]

I got some very exciting news tonight. But I have to wait to share it until it becomes awesomely exciting news. But on to training. Tonight I rolled with Mark, my instructor. Delightful and humiliating, as always. Apparently there are funny pictures of the event. Mark also showed me a cool new wrist lock and […]

Geoff and I did explosive training yesterday, plus some EST (energy system training – I’m learning so many new acronyms!) at the end. I also started reading a book that he gave me on functional strength training. Wow, it’s so much more involved than any other kind of training I’ve read about, and I’m getting […]

Kickin’ it Bang Fitness style

March 5th, 2009 by OMGBFFA | 3 Comments

Geoff has posted a description of his goals for my program in the Bang Fitness blog. Check it oot. My second strength day is today and my forearms are shot from the grip work on Tuesday. What misery awaits at Bang Fitness? I’ll let you know. Also, as part of my recovery, I’ve found my […]

Fasting day

March 4th, 2009 by OMGBFFA | 11 Comments

After having my ass kicked by Geoff last night (his choice implements of destruction were front squats, one-handed barbell rows and some wacked out crunches with my core contracted), I have embarked on my first fast of the cycle. Between 10pm last night and 10pm tonight my entire food for the day consists of 3L […]

Day 1: Pretty much like Day 0, except with soaking bath

March 2nd, 2009 by OMGBFFA | 3 Comments

Today John informed me that, due to my high volume of training in this program, it will be critical for me to focus on my rest and recovery. He prescribed a nightly care and feeding of the parasympathetic nervous system using techniques like a long, hot bath with candles and music. Best. Training program. Ever.

Three new blue belts!

February 19th, 2009 by OMGBFFA | Comments Off

As Mistress Krista has mentioned, we are in California this week at Big John McCarthy’s Ultimate Training Academy for the first ever Women’s Grappling Camp. Congratulations to my friends Leah, Christine and Doris, who received their blue belts in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from Felicia yesterday. The promotions were well deserved and a long time coming. I […]

US Grappling Women’s Pro divison

August 9th, 2008 by OMGBFFA | 1 Comment

Last weekend I was given the opportunity to compete as part of a four-woman pro bracket. There were three purple belts (Hillary Williams, Shavonne Guthrie, Jennie Radovsky) and me. I did okay, I suppose: I lost my first match on an advantage to Hillary, and I lost the third-place match 3-0 against Shavonne. I was supposed to be in California this weekend at the world championships, but I decided not to go. I’m not feeling good about my jiu-jitsu.

Who I am

July 29th, 2008 by OMGBFFA | 1 Comment

I thought I would start this blog on Krista’s site so I can share what it is like to be an athlete, and specifically an athlete who is training at Kamp Krusty. (Get it? Krista? Krusty? Kamp? Simpsons reference? Ha ha! Man, you guys are the worst audience ever.)

I plan to blog occasionally about my training and competition journey. I was preparing to write my first entry, but it occurred to me that I should tell you a bit about who I am.
