May Have Found A Light At The End of My Tunnel

5 years ago

and its KICKBOXING!! I think I love it! I can't stop thinking about it, and can't wait to go back to another class!! Sure, my body is KILLING me, but it's in that oh so good way that I love after an intense workout that has made me use muscles I never normally use.

My sister has been kickboxing in self-defense style at Tiger Schulmann's for over a year, and she's lost 70 pounds, she looks freaking amaxing, but what's more is she has energy to play, run, jump, and just have fun with her son. I've been hearing her talk about it for as long as she's been doing it, secretly wishing I could do it too. Then I thought, why can't I do it? Nothing's really stopping me, my daughter does her kickboxing on the weekend, dance on wednesday's and what am I don't for me? Nothing, so on Wednesday I said  "it's now or never" and I walked into a class, intimidated as hell, watched for about 40 minutes, then said "screw it, if I don't do it now I never will".

I did it! I sweat through my first hour, and tried as hard as I could to not look like a complete idiot. Then I realized, who care s what I look like, I'm doing something I WANT to do, and nothing and no one is going to ruin that for me!

I went back today, and even though my body hurts, its still that good hurt, I can't wait to go back!!
