Welcome to the final day of 2016!
For me, this past year just flew by, and in a way I’m sad to see it go. I had some very happy moments in 2016 (things like getting my pet rabbit, getting engaged, travelling to Tokyo for the first time, starting my YouTube channel and website, etc…) so in that respect I feel like I need more time to reflect upon the good things that happened this year.
However, I’m also excited to see what 2017 brings. A new year always holds a lot of hope and excitement- so I’m excited to see what the new year holds for my website and channel. My goal is to really ramp up my efforts to bring you high quality videos that are both fun and informative. So if you have any ideas on how I can create an experience that would be more engaging, please let me know!
Finally, I will leave you with my final YouTube video from 2016. Please give it a watch and subscribe.
So for 2017 please continue to like these posts and comment, it’s so nice to know you guys are out there!
My favorite day of the week is Saturday- specifically Saturday mornings. It’s on these early morning days that I get to go to my kickboxing class and learn new ways to keep myself healthy and strong.
As you may know from reading my About Me section, or from a previous post I’ve written on the subject, I have a heart condition known as Afib. So working out isn’t easy when your heart randomly forgets how to operate. But fitness has always been a part of my life, and it was important to me to find new ways to be fit now that I have this medical condition.
Though it took some time, I finally found a martial arts facility who was willing to train me despite the liability of my health issue. Plus, who would continue to train me knowing that I would always be the student who came in dead last at every activity. It’s not from lack of effort, but my poor heart just can’t keep up with all of the amazing people I workout with.
However, ever since my first day in class, my Sifu has been amazing at helping teach me techniques that even I can do. Now, this isn’t to say that there aren’t days when my heart gets the better of me, in fact, just this morning I had to sit out for a bit when my heart started acting up. But I love the challenge. I love pushing myself to my limit each class in the hopes of being able to go just a little but farther the next time.
And that’s what I hope to do with this blog, to help people like myself who want to take charge of their health and well being so they can feel empowered like I do after a good class. While I know I’m not as experienced or skilled as my Sifu, I still hope you will walk with me down this path and learn with me.
And remember, after a good workout session it is important to replenish your body with healthy food that it can use as fuel. I tend to gravitate to this pea protein shake that’s vegan and tastes good. But feel free to eat a salad with some chicken, have a whey protein shake, some nuts, or whatever suits your dietary needs.
Thanks again for stopping by. Please give me a follow and a like to get updates on this page.
