Viva la mexica - MMAsherdog Blog

I arrived in Playa del Carmen a few days ago and rented an Airbnb.
In the last months or two, I didn't manage to play a lot of poker, but I am fully back on the grind now, and the plan is to grind like a mad man for a while.
I'll be waking up, turning on my PC, and grinding until I go to bed.
With short food or work out/beach breaks. And of course I'll keep coaching my students.

Being in Mexico just makes a world of difference.
The sun wakes you up early in the morning, you're full of energy and you just want to get things done, rather than stay in bed like I did when I was living in my parents' cold basement.
I've also put some work into my game and I'm feeling pretty confident.
My run as of late has been kind of matrix-like, but I did start off in Mexico by winning 25k in the first few days.
So, I'll be building on that momentum, looking to put in a 6-figure month, like I did in December last year.

I also want to work out 4-5 times a week and improve my diet, because I have been slacking a little.
It sucks that Mexico has American donuts for sale, and obviously tacos.
