I’ve been trying to be very good lately and have been going to Cardio-Kick classes at the Y, using the gym, as well as Tang Soo Do. Also, going swimming with Bill after TSD on Friday nights and using the steam room is working out rather nicely. This has meant I’ve been running out of clothes lots though as I only had one pair of track trousers and a solitary suitanble bra to wear to get sweaty in. UGH.
At long last I finally managed to buy a new sports bra and gym clothes on Saturday. The bra front has been quite an ordeal. Up until now I’ve been wearing my one and only two year old, and thus rather manky one and trying to make do as I’ve had a terrible time trying to find a replacement that actually fits. Acquiring a small size sports bra is far too difficult, they only seem to be readily available in large sizes and I was getting quite fed up. Having something decent to wear underneath my dobok, for extra padding and decency is rather essential you know. Anyway, we gave Mary a call and she had some great suggestions which led us to Galyan’s Sports, and a decent appropriate bra IN MY SIZE!! Whoo hoo!! I was so excited I bought two!
There was a sale on too and so I also snagged a couple of pairs of run around trousers, and Bill spotted a really cool pair of trainers for himself. Yay! New acquisitions! Strutted around the house in the new gear when we got home and can’t wait for the next gym trip now. Cool.
Actually talking about Cardio-Kick, that’s been rather fun. I wanted something to potentially help my sparring at TSD and boost my stamina so I can keep on fighting longer. 😉 I’ve been twice so far and am proud of myself because it was very scary the first time I went and I was very nervous indeed. . So far I’ve not had the scheduled instructor though, two different stand-ins with completely different styles took the class instead. The first was a funny male boxer who did a lot of kicks and boxing punches in his workout, the other was a black girl who did a whole heap of booty shaking. Lots of fun, but there’s no way I could do those! Failed miserably. It’s held in one of those rooms with the mirrors too so I got to see myself make a complete tit of myself. Yikes. Watching little Kay try to keep up with all those aerobic types is horribly funny, and I look so damn young and lost in the mirror too.
Tang Soo Do has picked up and we should be doing more sparring imminently. Last class Bill came in after the lesson and has ordered me some sparring gear. Wheee!! I was given the forearm and shin guards on Friday which I was quite excited about, but I’m going to have to talk to my instructor about those as I’m really not convinced of the fit. I’ve emailed him about this, but he’s not got back to me. Hope it’s not going to be an issue. 🙁
Okay, so there was no sugar, whatcha gunna do?! :p
