Steve Kiss week 4 part 2 (the editor no longer to blame)
By Steve Kiss….Continued
Steve Kiss: A case of the mondays….
Monday morning I woke up and did my morning work-out. A body weight /cross training routine. After that, started prepping fruit and veggies for a juice. I was running late for work and was rushing. In my haste I neglected to wash the items that I was juicing. My guess is that it is not a big deal to not rinse off one piece of fruit and eat it. This was not like that. When you make a juice large enough to be a meal, it takes many items. My juice consisted of: kale, spinach, cucumbers, carrots, grapefruits, apples, and assorted berries. I rushed off to work and packed a lunch box full of raw fruit and vegetables to eat throughout the day. (also I would be drinking at a minimum 1 and 1/2 gallons of water a day)
Steve Kiss: TPS reports have been filed, time to train
I arrived at practice Monday night after stopping home and making another juice. I got through the first hour of striking and I felt okay, stomach was getting a bit achy and starting to feel bloated. When BJJ started my stomach really began to hurt. I got through the hard training hour..but had to leave in a hurry. (I will leave the next hour out of the story because honestly..’aint nobody wanna hear bout none a dat mess’) The worst was yet to come. My eyes started to itch while at work the next day. Without thinking I would itch them and before I knew it they began to swell.
Steve Kiss: Anaphylaxis (look it up)
Within hours my eyes were swollen and almost shut. (think Martin Short in Pure Luck, just more handsome) I did not stop my diet. I didn’t even cut back. While writing this my eyes have gone completely back to normal and I feel great. I do not know what caused this issue, but, sad to say not much training happened during this week. (maybe the pesticides from not washing the fruit?) I did do my solo routines, yet did not want to put my school and training partner at risk if this was not an allergic reaction.
Steve Kiss: Back in the Saddle
My diet is going strong and I honestly am starting to feel the benefits. Some lower back pain remains from this reaction I suffered but I am certainly through the worst. You know all that fear of dying crap is over and all. I lost my inhaler and really haven’t missed it too much. This diet may actually be helping my asthma symptoms..who knows.
I plan on jumping back into training at full speed on Monday. I need to make up for lost time.
Steve Kiss: A magnanimous man
I want to take this opportunity to thank someone for their help. Without her I wouldn’t be able to have this diet working…or even function. She reminds me if I have a rehearsal with Six Day Reign, or a practice with NJMA, or Yoga with Yogawood, or if I’m late night at the office. She is my best friend and “manager”. So THANK YOU, you know who you are!
So another week down. I may not have learned much about MMA, or BJJ, or Muay Thai and wrestling this week. I did learn a great deal about pain and agony though. So whatever doesn’t kill you they say, right?
So till next week….and remember don’t sweat the petty things, just pet the sweaty things. May the force be with you. Komichiwa bitches!
