This started as a blog about training together as a family, in part to inspire other women & families to get involved. As female participation in jiu jitsu has increased, as we have grown as athletes and as we learned that families training together aren’t such an anomaly, the blog has evolved. Jen gets personal with posts on ambition, challenges & achievements in BJJ, CrossFit & with nutrition, while Tom's posts are more educational, informative and analytical in regards to training. On occasion you may hear from the kids.

Christmas cookies 25, Me 0

 by Jen

A Facebook friend recently posted "French Fries 10, Me 0." as his status update. For me it's "Christmas cookies 25, Me 0."

I'm seeing the correlation between eating junk and performing poorly.  My sick feeling on the mat tonight was a clear reminder that bad eating equals bad training. It is a choice. 

Coming soon:  I've been experimenting with a few sites to track all of my training, including Daily Mile, Fitocracy and TrackmyPr.  I'll be reviewing these in future posts. 


  1. Chips and Salsa do me in. The Christmas parties are not helping either.


  2. I didn't realise you were on Fitocracy: what's your username? :D

    Or perhaps you're already on the group and I just didn't realise?

  3. I'm JenStewart. I'm still trying to get better at using it.
