I've been thinking...a lot. I've been thinking about trying to get back into training, only this time on my own. I know that I can push the envelope and get myself into a reasonable facsimile of a martial artist.
I don't have a true school to work with anymore. I've left one school due to a conflict with an instructor. I left another school due to my own insecurity. For the past two years, I've not concentrated on anything. I've just existed. I have taken Tai Chi, which I loved, but stopped those lessons in February after having to be out for a week with surgery.
So, I'm mulling over the WHEN of when I'm going to start training. I need to keep up training with Alba. I need to push myself into not being lazy about documenting my food in my journal too. I spend entirely too much time saying "I'll get around to it" and then that "round to it" never comes. I have to get into the frame of mind of DO IT NOW. Period. End of story.
Alba knows about BOB. We've talked about using him. I guess I need to get off my but and make myself do what I want to do. I can come home from work, leave the car in the driveway, move BOB out into the middle of the garage and work on kicks, punches, etc. It's a matter of WHEN.
I also need to give Sa Bu Nim an answer. He's patient and isn't pushing me but...I need to continue to THINK. I need to talk to hubby and see what his opinion is.
I'm torn between being lazy and wanting to push myself back into some semblence of shape. I need to decide how important martial arts is to me. I talk to martial artists on a regular basis. I have acquired a good friend who is willing to go out of his way to help me. I need to help myself first.
The mind is a powerful thing. I need to push mine into submission and meditate on what I really want.
