Work Outs...

...Have been working out a lot lately. The last week has been filled with a lot of training for the competition. Plus, the twins have me do "Mommy dojo" sometimes. We go through what they've learned at karate. And, even though it's nowhere near as tough as the workouts I do in my own classes, it's still a workout.

...karate is much more than sparring, or fighting someone. It's getting your body to move and be powerful. It's about getting to know your body and what its capabilities are. Doing the series of punches, kicks, and blocks (called a kata) repeatedly is a fabulous way to get your heart-rate up without even realizing it. And it tones you at the same time.

...of course, should you participate as much as I have lately, your body might start to scream at you a little.
