Volunteering to get my ass whooped

Whooped into shape that is! As per my resolutions that aren’t really resolutions post, I’ve begun my journey to the dark side. That’s right, I’ve begun working out. This week my friend Kayla and I decided to try a one week free of cardio kickboxing class at One Martial Arts on Taraval. On my way to the bus stop I was feeling anxious and my anxiety went through the roof! I’ve never done a group fitness class before so I didn’t really know what to expect. Am I going to be able to keep up? Am I going to throw up from nerves? Is my asthma going to act up?  UGHH!! In order to clam my nerves I whipped out my camera phone and snapped a few photos to relax and keep me focused. The mood was very calm outside and I felt like capturing that in a photo would help calm my nerves. 

Once I met up with Kayla we joked about what to expect and how we were going to die half way through. We got to One Martial Arts, signed up for the free week trail and class was about to begin! Let me tell you, it wasn’t a walk in the park. I learned two things about myself. One, I have absolutely NOOOOOO coordination anymore, it’s embarrassing. And TWO I was determined. I didn’t want to give up, no matter what. What’s the point of working out if you don’t push yourself? Of course, I took a few breaks for water and completed the tasks to the best of my ability, but I didn’t give up. I’m proud of myself for that. I’m looking forward to more cardio kickboxing in the future. One week free trail be prepared to be defeated!
