Gross and Sweaty, but Satisfied

24 Nov

Kickboxing is good for your soul. Letting out aggression, filling your body with endorphins.

This morning Baby was at my in laws and I went to work out. It was a tough class, and I was sweaty and wheezing by the middle of it, but I kept on going. Loud music was blasting as we punched and kicked, and the instructor kept saying, Hold on! We’re not done yet! So we just kept on going and going.

Some parts were difficult, I wanted to stop, but I didn’t, and I thought: This is my life. Sometimes all I want is to stop, but I can’t. I can’t stop, and I know that I can make it to the end. Just like the end of a training session, when you’re all gross and sweaty, but satisfied. And I realized that that’s what things will be like when all this is all over, I’ll be gross and sweaty, but satisfied.

By the way, I finally found a ringtone. For a while I thought it was going to be Tubthumping – I get knocked down, but I get up again. But I realized, it’s not just about getting back up, it’s about having the power to keep on keeping on. And I realized… I GOT THE POWER!
