So I am a very girly girl, shy type. If you cannot already tell from reading my blog, I thought I would share.
In any case, I did something totally out of my element yesterday. I went to a mixed martial arts gym and took a fighting class. Let me just say, that this class was amazing. The teaching methods and pads you wear allow you to kick as hard as you can and teach you to continue into the fight rather than to back off. The only challenging part for me was getting over touching sweaty people. Okay and perhaps coming home with sweaty clothes not being convinced that all the sweat was mine was a little off putting.
It feels great to step out of your element. This fighting class is more though. I feel today like I am slightly better prepared to handle a tough situation. I really want to continue these classes and really learn to fight. I am normally scared to be home alone and I do not enjoy crowds. I feel like joining this gym will help me emotionally.
Here is my issue. Right now I belong to a suburban gym where I workout almost everyday and I am a big class taker. I mean I go to yoga, spinning, lifting, as well as use all the cardio equipment on my own. I also run. Lastly I have a personal trainer who I work out with at a private gym 2 more times a week. Do I need another gym to join? Am I going to be over extended? I am not sure what to do here. I know I took a strong empowering class, but do I want to do this full time. Don't forget, I am trying to have a baby right now, which would limit the fighting classes and only allow me to take advantage of the amazing fitness classes there. Do I make decisions around if I might become pregnant?
See, looking to the blogsphere has always helped me with indecision! Give it to me bloggers. I want to here what you think!
