cparker's Journal, 28 April 2012

Orange was the color of the night last night. 8-) I accomplished my first belt goal through Tae Kwon Do, and I am now working toward my yellow belt. The instructor allowed Andy and me to test together which I thought was pretty cool. Our next cycle will focus on training for the splits, and I have already started doing stretches as of today to get ready.

It will take at least two years to reach black belt, and last night we got to participate in our first soap and candle ceremony for two brand new black belt inductees. It was so inspiring to see. Also, our instructor was able to don his first child of four with a black belt, and he got emotional which meant all of us women got emotional...I wasn't expecting tears at Tae Kwon Do, but I was sadly mistaken and didn't have my waterproof mascara on LOL!

We are also learning simple,(instructor calls them simple anyway) self-defense combat techniques along with basic Tae Kwon Do and heavy workouts. I hadn't been going with the family at all because I was scared to be honest. I went one week, while I was just under 190, and everyone had to do 40 sit-ups and push-ups at random times through the night, and the next night we had to do 50 lunges and squats and 25 power lunges and squats. I was terrified. I have done some praying since then, and I have decided I am going to go and just do the best I can. I might not be able to do those 50 lunges or squats and sit-ups at first, but that doesn't mean I can't go and try. I can most definitely work my way up to what everyone else is doing. Only thing is I get discouraged very easily because in all honesty, I do not like myself at all right now. I know I shouldn't be that way,and it is a weakness I need to work on. Once I fail at something I get it in my head that I knew I was going to all along, so did everyone else, and I'm never going to get it right. Just confessing faults here people. I have a bad problem with this and trusting the Lord to get me through. I can't do anything in my own strength anyway so I don't know why it's so hard to trust Him and His strength. Anywho, I've got to start my day. I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me Phil.4:13
