How expensive this sport is. I guess I was hoping that this sport would be cheaper now lol.
I need a
new LP lame
2 new vniti blades
Arrgh, oh well. Gotta save!!
I forgot how much FUN fencing was to WATCH. I don't know that fencing will ever be fun enough here locally to participate in again, apart from the occasional local bout or two. There was never enough foil here to really make it worth my while.
I recall how slow women's foil always seemed to me. A slow war of attrition and boredom.

The problem with atkins dieting is that it is much more expensive than crappy food. I am currently at 197 in the mornings and 201 during the day.
I think for now I'm just going to have to maintain that until after allergy season. I can hardly breathe as it is and my sinuses are killing me. As long as I stay reasonably healthy and don't gain weight I can live with that.
I think in May I will restart another induction phase to lose the remaining weight.
