Making up my own sayings here... What I mean to convey is that I ended 2013 on the right foot, which automatically lead to starting 2014 on the right foot! Here is the sequence of events:
#1 I just could not, would not and absolutely did not accept that 2013 would come to an end without going to train one last time at The Wat! No way Jose I said!! So I made it to the 7:30pm advanced beginner's class on the 30th. There was only a few of us so Susan pushed us and we got a great workout, pad work included. I was so happy and relieved to have trained after a year of training WAY less than I find acceptable. Not doing that again...
#2 On New Year's eve I took part in the "Midnight Run" in Central Park with a few friends. It's a 4 mile run that starts at 11:59pm on New Year's Eve, with music, fireworks and lots of people standing out in the cold to cheer you on. Great way to say goodbye to 2013, hello 2014! That is if you don't mind running in the freezing cold in the dark... :) Don't mind if I do actually!
Here are a few pics:
#3 I ended up not working today (I've been working every Saturday lately booooooo!)so today I made it to The Wat! woop woop!! Now because I haven't trained I was seriously considering taking the Total Beginner class instead of the Beginner's Sparring class... Seriously I was like, "do I really wanna get beat up today?..." But when I saw who showed up for the sparring class, I couldn't resist so I stepped up and did the sparring class. Double woop wooop!! It was really great actually. Seems everyone got better and I managed to hold my own.
I looked down at my leg half way through and noticed someone managed to draw blood from my leg. And my right shin is crazy soar... Yup I feel alive today! :)
Conclusion: This year I will NOT sabotage myself by thinking I have no time to train. I will MAKE time for Muay Thai. A healthy mind lives in a healthy body. Being in shape and happy will create energy for me to accomplish my other tasks at hand.
I'm ready for you 2014. Bring it.
What about you? Have you made any New Year's resolution? Healthy and strong is in! You can do it!!!
