New White Belt

Monday, March 11, 2013

I know I have been missing yet again, but no matter how many times I leave, I always come back!

For my birthday in January, I signed up for Tae Kwon Do. During that time, I suffered w/ a horrible sinus infection, but I kept going back. I am the oldest one there and most of the "adults" are under 18! We do not automatically receive our belt and uniform. We must earn it. Talk about a difficult workout, then trying to remember all of the different patterns. I am also learning Korean as part of the things I need to learn to earn each belt. What a ride so far and what an inspiration! It really makes it more difficult than it needs to be carrying this extra weight on my stomach. This is my passion and I want to add cardio to improve my Tae Kwon Do.

New toy: I phone w/apps which has really been helpful in lots of different areas, including the sparkpeople app.

    So cool! Hope the training goes well--it's always something I thought about doing, but never have....
