I thought I would be more upset than I am, but thank goodness I have a blessed husband who teased me, treated me, and makes me feel incredible because of the love he has for me, and the love I have for him. I never understood this type of love ... Read more
My Biggest Goal
Wednesday, March 18, 2009      1 comments

I am so glad that I went back into martial arts again. I could kick myself (pun intended) for having stopped for awhile. It is really hard to get back into. I have difficulty doing things now that I could do a year ago. I have to restart doin... Read more

WELL started with a new dojo tonight and I am so pleased to be back in martial arts. I can't believe how much I missed it. Tonight was self defense and I knew most of the moves, and those I did know the instructor was able to help me tweak bet... Read more
I hate blogging

I really hate to blog (which is why there are so few entries here - duh). Part of the reason I haven't been blogging is that I have fallen backwards and spiraled. I have regained 50 of the 80 lbs I lost. Sort of all started with having su... Read more

I asked my Sabomnin if I could break a board last night after class. It was something I was supposed to do for this belt (green) but had not done yet. He has always assured me that I could break a board (I have broken practice boards many time... Read more

I saw this as a title to a message board and I wrote one sentence on it. I know this time is differnt because I believe that I will make it. This small sentence inspired someone to look at my page and then to connect to me and email me... Read more
Plauteau! Kicking out of it!
Monday, September 24, 2007      0 comments

I have been on a plauteau for a long time. I have been plugging along - but I had been slowing down, and not watching what I eat as strictly either. I had been studying Kung Fu for a little over a year, and then my instructor could not stay so... Read more

Yesterday, I did the YMCA 5k. This is significant in that this was the first 5K I did last year. I was last then, coming in at 77 min. This happened to be the hardest course to start with - the first half was all uphill. You would think comi... Read more

I had my testing today for orange belt. Half way through the test, he was not happy with ALL the students and told us that no one was passing at this point. We continued with the testing and then he took the white belts outside. While he gave... Read more
