    Well this time next year I should have my Black belt in karate so I thought it would be good to start a diary for it.

    The grading will be both physically and mentally exhausting, it is 4.5 hours of hard work including a japanese test! So I have a lot of work to do and less than a year to do it.

    One thing I know for sure is that I don't want to be this size then so I am hoping to lose another 2 stone by then (I will set up a ticker for it).

    I will report on my progress with my training and weight loss here

    Right well I have 2 gradings tomorrow, kickboxing in the morning and karate in the afternoon. I have bad knee's which isn't a good thing but I also have a bad neck and shoulder so it will be interesting tomorrow! If all goes well I should be getting my yellow belt in kickboxing (8th Kyu) and my brown/2 white stripe belt in karate (2nd Kyu).

    I have got my ticker moving so that's good! I have all the right energy food and drink in stock for tomorrow so I am all set!

    Well I've got no idea how today is going to go. I had a really uncomfortable night and my neck and shoulder are still painful. I got my kickboxing grading in an hour which should go ok as I am a low grade at the mo so not so much is expected of me. I have taken paracetamol and ibuprofen and I will put a heat patch on my shoulder. This mornings grading is only an hour and a half so it's not too bad. I will report back later

    The KB grading went well and I got my yellow belt (8th Kyu) annd I am just chilling for a minute before I go back for the karate grading. It's just over 2 hours and we spar at the end when we are all knackered!

    Nas, I did tell them and the only thing I was unable to do was squat thrusts and push ups! Some things were a little painful but overall it was ok

    Thanks Nex. A bit of a blow to my training schedule, I have a head injury which has made my neck a lot worse too and I'm not allowed to train for 3 weeks so I will be a couch potato til the new year!

    I seem to have neglected this thread for a while! Well I wasn't able to do any training for about 5 weeks so that was quite a blow to the plan but I am back now with a vengeance!

    I am back up to my 5 hours martial arts training per week and I have now also joined the gym and intent to add regular gym and swim sessions to my schedule to improve my fitness and hopefully lose some more weight! I still have 4lb of the weight I put on over the christmas and new year period which I have to get rid of asap to get me back on track for losing the 2 stone!

    Phew! And I thought my training regime was tiring! Sounds like you're very active...way to go! I only swim when I need to relax now, have to manage my gym time very carefully now...2 hours needed to fit in my marathon training and also strength and ab work...but I'm sure I'll do it and I'm sure you will too...keep it up...

    Thanks Ellie, I do the 5 hours martial arts training over 3 days and plan to fit in at least one gym session and 2 swims per week. That is the plan!
