Finally making headway!

I started Karate back in Oct. Nothing seem to be happening, then this last week before vacation I was down 10lbs and 5 inches!!!!

I am almost 60 yrs old and the instructor let me start back at karate at green belt where I left off 30yrs ago. I can't jump high or stretch out real far, but with practice I am stretching further then I have in ages and if I can keep my balance, I can kick....lost balance off jump kick the other night and fell on kness (OUCH) yes it hurt...but just buised and not broken and able to walk just fine.

I am going to be my black belt one of these days. I love this because I don't have to exercise alone and my grandson helps me alot. He will be promoted to Green belt this week, we will be on same ground and he is getting to be a great little instructor.

I just never thought I would get this chance again, but I am loving it and will stay with it for as long as I can. Never say you can't do matter what age. You can if you really want it bad enough. I have my down times, but those are few and far between.

Go for your dreams and you will succeed...hugs for now!!!!

    I love finding a way to enjoy fitness rather than suffer though it! Doing something as a family also sounds just brilliant. :)
