it is simple, but it is not easy!

yup, my Sensei tell us this all the time. the answer to doing karate (or in this case, getting fit) is simple... eat healthy, exercise and have a positive attitude. but it is NOT easy! and heck, if it WAS easy, EVERYone would be fit, right? just like in karate, there are not many black belts for a reason... it is not easy! you have to train, train, and train. but not only physically, but mentally and emotionally. when i first started i thought there was no way i could ever become a black belt! i was gonna be happy with getting to an orange belt! but i stuck with it. and goodness, sometimes i wanted to quit so bad. but you know what? i wanted my black belt more than i wanted to quit. that is what i need to remember. and after literally after "blood, sweat and tears" i did get it. and it was worth it.
at any time, i just could have gone to a different dojo (karate training place) that basically "gives" you your belt, you just gotta pay for it, but i wanted to EARN it. sometimes i would just love to go to a liposuction place and just get it all sucked out. and although this might help some people, i know that i hafta put in the "blood, sweat and tears" again and get it done. nothing worth having ever comes easy, right?
so i guess this is wear i say to myself, suck it up, buttercup, it will be worth it...
