This morning, I weighed myself and noticed that I've lost about 5 pounds since the last time I looked. I pretty much have to chalk this up entirely to aikido because I haven't particularly been watching what I eat and the only regular exercize I get is Aikido (2 to 3 times a week). I've also noticed much better muscle tone and I'm even getting muscle definition in places I've never had muscle definition. I'm certainly not muscle-bound, but I do think I look like I'm in much better shape than I've probably ever been in.

Last night's class was a lot of fun as usual. We concentrated on tsuki techniques including some kaiten nage stuff. While I'm doing much, much better with my front ukemi, I'm still finding ukemi in kaiten nage to be very akward. I think it's because I just haven't done it enough. My front ukemi is also frustrating because one side is super easy to roll on, but the other still feels weird. At least I'm not landing on my side anymore!

I'm looking forward to my rank promotion which should be coming up sometime in the next few months. Now that Lindsay (my wife) is ranked, she should be able to give me a lot of help. It should be fun, and I'm pretty darned confident that I'll be able to do well.
