Karate- Session 2

Mondays are going to be my test of endurance. I'm not giving up my regular work out routine just because I started Karate again. So Mondays add up to about 2 1/2 hours of work out.

You'd think I'd be some skinny stick bug. I'm not. Chocolate and carbs help keep that extra poundage on. Once I break those ugly habits, I'm home free.

Hey, everyone has to have a vice. It could be worse.

Anyway, this was the second class and only once did I mutter to the guy next to me, "I so suck at this". He had to be thinking, "Ahhhh, just like old times." When I trained before, I'd quietly mutter this to him a couple times a training session. He got off easy. I only said it once.

My ankles are tighter than they were and my hip flexors are giving me problems. I'm just not bendy dammit, but I'm working on it. It will come.

I'm just feeling ever so thankful that I remember as much as I do. I'm not where I was... but the journey back seems doable. It is a brass ring that I can reach. If I can see my goal, that's half the battle.

Your real goal is nice thighs and hips, right? GRIN.

LOL! I know what you are referring to. But... genetically I got lucky in the thighs and hips area. Mine are cool. That said, if I could just attain a flat stomach and a waist, I would be happy! My theme song is "If I only had a waist", sung to "If I only had a brain". That won't happen though without the help of a talented surgeon and a damn sharp knife.
