I had such a bad night, I feel the need to redeem myself --- at the very least by considering it in retrospect then using that insight to make sure it never happens again.

I know my mistake: not eating properly today. I was in a hurry and had a very meagre breakfast, followed working and running errands entirely through lunch. The next thing I knew, it was the end of the day, I'd be heading out to Aikido soon and I had very little to eat. Never again!

Not surprisingly, I was running on empty. It was so bad, our usual ukemi drills wore me down. So my ukemi sucked even worse than usual. Which is pretty bad.

I mentioned my folly to Dave and Sempai Garry, but they say they didn't notice; that I looked like I was doing well. Hah. Well, I certainly didn't feel it. Though I'm sure Sensei noticed.

Other than feeling like I had a ton of bricks in my stomach, it was a good night. We did some Kaishi Waza (reversals) from Shomenuchi Ikkyu, and I enjoyed seeing such a nice variety of options. Another downside of this whole thing is that for the life of me, I can't recall many details at all --- I've been hungry to the point of distraction!
Which is not good.

Lesson learned.
