Exercise....

....I have been getting very little of it lately. The holidays make it a bit difficult. Hard to fit it in with all the eating, drinking, and visiting. And my back hurts now. Need to fit in going to the gym, etc. My back so desperately needs it.

....I drug Collin to karate class with me last night. We are learning a new weapon called the tonfa. Basically a tonfa is like a police officer's billy club. Is made of wood. You can buy foam ones, but I feel like foam ones will inspire laziness in me. So I train with wood. So we're just now learning the tonfa. And the sensei hasn't really given us much as far as the extreme basics to work with. Is a bit on the frustrating side, because the older I get, the more step-by-step instructions are needed for me. And lots and lots of repetition. Why am I droning on about the stupid tonfa, you ask? Well, I keep clocking myself on the elbow and the head with it. And it hurts! Hopefully I will gain some better skill with this thing. Otherwise, it could prove very dangerous for me!

Whatever you do, PLEASE do not hit yourself in the head with it :-) Enough concussions for our family for a long time...ha

Have you ever tried yoga for your back? It might help!

So that's whats wrong, you've been hitting yourself in the head?! Maybe you need a new weapon that is less dangerous to yourself.

I can just imagine the bruises I would have using this. I get blue marks just getting out of my recliner.

....and a boot to the head....and one for Jenny and The Wimp.

Have no idea if anyone will get that reference, but I couldn't resist.
