So, last time I started to write, I was writing about Waffle Wednesday last week, which didn't actually conclude with me having scarfed down a waffle. We ended up going to Delissimo's and I had a chicken sandwich. That was the first day of me going to the gym. I set a goal that I would go to the gym every day for a week and I have completed that goal! (First YAY!) I've even gone twice a day sometimes. One day, Rob went with me and that was really fun.
My ultimate goal is to get into shape and feel and be healthier. in order to accomplish that goal, last week, I signed up for a FREE trial Taekwondo lesson at East Side Tae Kwon Do. And Today, I went to that lesson. It was, in a word, AWESOME. Although I hurt in places I haven't hurt in about four years, that's totally okay. I had a blast. The people there were cool too and the instructor was able to change the lesson to fit everyone's individual belt color. (There was a 12 year old green belt, an adult purple belt, an adult white belt and me, a no-belt, lol) While the more advanced students worked on more advanced kicks, me and the white belt worked on Front Kicks and Axe Kicks. I learned that my left leg is weak as hell (damn herniated disc) but other than that, it was super fun! The instructor, Master Marie-Claire, saw that I was athletic and fit enough to the try the kicks which I thought was pretty awesome! She made it fun for everyone, which I thought was great. I was also glad that I was included in an actual lesson instead of just a private lesson.
Tomorrow is my private lesson at Gotham Taekwondo. It's a bit shorter than my lesson today and it costs something, but that shouldn't matter. I'm going for quality when I decide which Do Jang to train at. So far, East Side TKD did *not* feel like a belt factory, so that's a major plus. Hopefully Gotham won't either. :-)
Anyway, that's my update on life and TKD (mostly TKD).
