20 minutes of Elliptical since there’s thunderstorms - gr what I wouldn’t give for a nice outdoor jog… oh! and 40 minutes of yoga (: ….
I still really wanna go to the gym and lift, though. I honestly want to start REAL weights and deadlifts. I’m terrified when I go down to the weight room, though, and rush behind some machines….
I used to squat 120 my freshman year….I really REALLY think I could start that up again easily, but I’m like all HFAOISHFASIOPFAS OMG HAI GUYS WANT A NEWBIE 18 YEAR OLD GIRL INVADING YOUR LIFTING SPACE?
So yesterday was a pretty okay day…
Woke up, made farina, did a 50 minute yoga routine, then printed out forms/made payments for/looked stuff up for college. Afterwards I sorta floated around and had a luna bar for a snack. Cleaned my room, drew, and finally….LUNCH.
Lunch was absolutely beautiful. A corn tortilla with melted cheese, kale, tomatoes, and cucumbers! YUM. I burnt it a bit, but that’s just a mistake to remember to avoid!
Anywho - after lunch I - again - floated around, talked to a friend, didn’t really know what to do with myself. THEN LO AND BEHOLD I FIND OUT THERE’S A BOOK BASED ON PETER PAN’S TIGER LILY. I LOOKED IT UP, READ AN EXERPT, THEN GOT ON MY BIKE AND MADE MY WAY TO THE BOOKSTORE.
Bought the book AND two comics! (flash and batgirl!)
Snack time #2 consisted of homemade chocoalte protein pudding (Two scoops spirutein powder, and your choice of one cup of milk - cow’s, almond, soy, etc. the two scoops gives it a pudding-y texture rather than a smoothie) and half of a fage greek yogurt (in case you didn’t notice my protein for the day was a bit lacking.)
I read until my dentist appointment. Read while WAITING at my dentist, came home, ran to gym where I did another half hour taekwondo routine and a half hour of weights.
Once I got in the car I decide to make my brother drive and pick up my friend. We grab some Pesos (I got nutella cream ice. TIS OKAY IT MADE MY BELLAY HAPPY). Sooo I had dessert before dinner and dinner wasn’t much considering I didn’t feel like cooking and I was so full from the rest of the day - so a piece of whole wheat toast with a tablespoon of peanutbutter…
Then my friend, brother, and two neighbors of mine just hung out for the night. I didn’t get to go to bed till 2, and now, even though I planned on running all day, I wake up to thunderstorms.
I DON’T LIKE THUNDERSTORMS GUYS. I’M TERRIFIED OF THEM. I’M REALLY WONDERING WHAT I SHOULD DO CAUSE I WANNA GO TO A YOGA CLASS AT THE GYM THAT’S IN HALF AND HOUR, BUT YOU KNOW I COULD ALWAYS DO THE YOGA VIDEO HERE AT HOME AND ELLIPTICAL AND TWENTY MINUTE CALISTHENICS YES? AHHHH HALP ME.
I mean I know the majority of the kids there are well…kids haha…but one just looks at me and she always asks how long I’ve been dancing for. I tell her I just started a few months ago and she calls me a liar xD Then another girl asks me just how many sports I do and says I have a really athletic body. THEN the ballet teacher keeps talking about either my “strong legs/muscles” and stuff and once about how I had a nice butt O.o (the joy of a crazy Greek dance teacher). I just like going there even if I’ve got bow-legs.
BUT BUT BUT BUT
My contract had been expired for TKD for a while and I haven’t renewed it because of the play and stuff and I’d barely get to go there. And now, I have two months left before the hecticness of summer comes along where I’m going to Cyprus, Disney, and getting ready for college, etc. etc. I don’t think I’d really get to go to TKD often at all, and I can’t get a contract for only that short amount of time (four months) anyway….
I can’t go back to Taekwondo.
I was near tears when I figured this out. I’ll definitely try going for maybe one or two last training sessions, but Jesus those goodbye’s wil be so emotional for me (It’s gunna be all respectful bowing martial arts style teary too! D: ) and I just….
Taekwondo has been such a critical part in my life and now this dojang…I’m leaving it….
I definitely want to continue practicing my martial arts, but….wow….I’m near tears just typing this. So many memories with so many amazing people there, and so much strength given to me in such a silly way….

Then coming home and 3 sets of 15 push ups and 3 sets of 15 leg lifts and 3 sets of weighted squats and a fifteen minute elliptical warm down.
