There is a 23 yr old mixed martial artist named jon jones who just found out march 6 that he will be fighting shogun (a legend and current light heavyweight champ) for the belt tomorrow night. A couple days before it became official, he was told he may have an opportunity to shogun. He was eating dinner and said he was so shockked and his nerves were so great that he couldn't even finish eating his dinner. Jon jones said he is excited and won't let the "fire" (aka his anxiety) consume him. He's gonna use the nerves and channel it toward his opponent. See? Everyone gets anxious. Even a ufc fighter. Even actresses. Even a bunch of "normal" people. My boyfriend told me he gets nervous about things but he just does them anyway. Maybe we are taking our own problems too seriously because they are our own. Maybe our anxiety is not as debilitating as we let it become.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
