Had karate class tonight. I almost didn't go because my knee is bugging me from a super hard kick I did last week. But I took a few ibuprofen and sucked it up. I am so glad I did.
We are getting ready for a fight tournament and a belt test, both in March. I am not fighting but my son is. The belt test is a week after the fight. We are really working it in class to get ready for both. Tonight we did all of the strikes, block, and kicks according to belt ranks. We did "ido geiko" which is moving strikes , blocks, and kicks also. I was totally on my game tonight. I love the feeling of focus.
Then we did our physical fitness- sit ups, push ups, and squats. Granted that my sit ups are limited by my belly at 290 pounds and my push ups do not go all the way down or I would never get back up but they are so much improved! I am totally psyched about it tonight. I did 53 sit ups in one minute, 50 push ups in one minute, and 60 squats in one minute. The hard work and consistency is paying off! Even in sparring, I was able to do techniques rather then punching like a wild woman! The whole class was great!
Diet is still going good. Learning diet techniques before starting the actual diet. Today was a plan for exercise. I commit to 5 minutes of walking daily as suggested and one spark people video daily. I did the seated core work out today. And of course, karate!
Tonight I will go to bed happy. I'm feeling kinda awesome!
