Workout/Martial Arts 06/15/2020: A day late on my blog, but I did put the work in over the week.

So here I am again a day late for my blog. But I had a good reason. For us in U.S.A. it was Fathers Day. I am not certain if you celebrate in other areas of the world the same on the same day. If you do please celebrate please tell me. I am not big for those “hallmark holidays” where you just celebrate for the sake of getting stuff. However, I love this holiday because we can let H my kids father and my partner know we love him. We did this by making his favorite foods, and making him a gift we all worked on.

Well aside from that we had a great week of training. I worked on something that I am not great at. The superman punch. It was 5 days of training. 3 days of Muay Thai and some Kali worked in there, and 2 days of cross training. Yay!

I also have a recipe I am working on… just kinda been busy. I home school my kiddos and this is the last week, kinda crazy, and we have been doing review before they are tested for and evaluated for the next year of school.

How have your workouts been going? Tell me what is working for you, and is not. How have you found time to get them in. I sometimes have to just shoehorn them in where I can find 20 minutes to get a run in.

No excuses today… I have let things derail me from my goals in the past. But not today, I worked around my scoliosis.

I had to get my run in today so I thought might as well stop by the post office I run past. I needed to get those letters out to my students today and needed some stamps.

Man I am so tired but I put in the time on the mat.

Sometimes there is not much to say other than just get in and do the work. Some days it’s not going to be glamorous/exciting(let’s face it most days). A lot of times it’s going to be just working the technique and drilling it out. That is what today was.

Wednesday 06/17/2020: 25 minute run

When you really just want a lazy day. Get out and do something, I feel better after having gotten at least a small workout in on days like this. I decided to listen to my body and not push the Calisthenics today. I went out for a run was planning on going 3 miles but got rained out. I did get 2 miles in and am happy about that.
Keep fighting for what you believe in, for what is right, and for those who can’t.

Also buss driver went by and gave me a 👍 thumbs up. That was cool and made my run. So nice to have a nice not weird interaction with a human.

Thursday 06/18/2020: 1 hour and 10 minutes Muay Thai Training

Khun Kru Krysta worked our butts off tonight.

Today… well today was a day. I woke up at three and turned off my alarm before it went off, fell back to sleep and woke up scared that I overslept. Then came downstairs to realize I was up way to early. At work dealt with customers and things that make me go what???

I got home to help my kids with their classes. Last week push to get done with school.

I am a cranky human shaped thing today. But I did my workout. I did my training and I am honing my Superman punch today. Yay!

Then after training I had some fruit for a snack.

Today wore on my nerves but I got the chance to knee the crap out of my partner. I have often been told to be meaner, to come with intention. I don’t want to hurt those that I love and train with. So that has been hard for me to do. But with the way the last few weeks have been going in terms of the world and stupidity. I brought it tonight. The caliber and the intensity of my knees I am told were 4 or 5 fold what I usually put into on a partner.

I have been angry and finally feel like I am letting it out in my training. Part of it is my body not doing the Superman just right-so that irritates me the other part the state of the world.

It was a great day of training. I had a great time.


Look I get it… some weeks are just not great. For instance my week started out with my scoliosis just acting up on me. When my back and neck hurt, my hands go numb, my legs can ache on top of my neck and back pain. It sucks. I don’t sleep well. We have terrible news, and we are plagued by idiots in our government. Some weeks are just terrible.

I do what I can when I can. I try to listen to my body and work around my physical issues. I read and educate myself all the time, so that when I do my civic duty and vote I can try to affect change. I do my best. I think that is all anyone is asking of us.

I missed putting this blog out on Sunday, but we had an awesome time as a family just being together on Sunday. That was worth being a little late in my opinion.

Get out there and do something for your body. It can be anything… yoga, running, calisthenics, martial arts, swimming, biking, just to name a bunch.
