I am already thinking of changing up how I do this. After all, my Wing Chun routine consists of pretty much the same thing every day. Posting the same stats repeatedly all week could get a little bland. So what can I do? Well, first of all I am not some never-ending source of blog ideas. I see people out there like Dom Izzo who post Wing Chun videos on an almost daily basis. I don’t have the time for that, so I need another option.
One idea I had is to subscribe to a ton of Wing Chun channels on YouTube and get video ideas from them. Keep in mind I will not be plagiarizing. Their videos will merely serve as inspirations for mine, although I have to admit that sometimes there may indeed be crossover. However, it still won’t be a complete ripoff because these videos will represent MY take on the subjects.
So I think I will have a three-way approach to posting on here:
1) Video posts. These will be on YouTube AND posted here.
2) Blogs of my own composition. These could be summaries of my exercise/nutrition struggle, or of course Wing Chun-related. They could even be reviews of Wing Chun books/movies…hey, maybe even some philosophical posts on how to apply things learned in Wing Chun to daily life. I promise that I will strive to not get too New Age-y in these.
3) Guest posts. These could be articles written by Wing Chun instructors, or maybe even just Wing Chun enthusiasts/students. If there are no submissions for guest posts, then I will simply post a link to a video I like and talk about that.
I think this will provide the blog with a LOT more variety and interesting content. Now, having said all that, I will still post the training I did for the day, either at the bottom of posts like this or in their own post. We will see what works best.
I will say one thing that I am going to change: since there is only one item to be entered under the heading EXERCISE, I am going to stop breaking that out as its own separate listing and incorporate it into the Wing Chun heading.
WING CHUN AND EXERCISE
*Challenge Round 1
*Challenge Round 2
*All forms that I know
10 Minute Trainer: Core Cardio
*BREAKFAST: bread (1 grain), peanut butter (1 protein), banana (1 fruit), milk (1 dairy)
*SNACK 1: small orange (1/2 fruit), cereal (1 grain)
*LUNCH: rice (1 grain), string cheese (1 dairy), peanuts (2 proteins), carrots (1 vegetable)
*SNACK 2: string cheese (1 dairy), rice (2 grains)
*DINNER: protein bar (1 protein)
NOTE: I was supposed to have one more protein and one more vegetable, but I was still feeling full. If there is one piece of nutrition wisdom that I think is indispensable and everyone should follow, it’s the phrase, “Listen to your body.” In other words feeling full is better than feeling stuffed.
