Since I last participated in this challenge, I've started taking Tang So Do, a Korean form karate, with my oldest. My start was kind of a fluke. My middle decided he no longer wanted to attend, but we still had half a year's contract to fulfill. So, I thought, instead of just sitting and watching, I could do this. So I took my middle's place and then ended up continuing on and renewing the contract again. My oldest and I just tested over the weekend. He for his red belt (the last belt color before black, although he has 4 stripes yet to go) and I tested for green.
We both kicked b*tt! Both literally and figuratively. Because I've been running a bit, I had more endurance to survive the hardest part: sparring (fighting hand and foot) against three men, all of whom were 2-6 inches taller than me. I even managed to score a few points against two of the guys which made me feel like a NINJA!
It's so much fun to do something with my oldest and not only to learn with him, but also to learn from him. I feel like I'm being a good mom and being good to myself at the same time.
P.S. In order, my three are hydration, exercise, and eating my fruits & veggies.
