Today I had to double my normal requirements as I will be at a concert on Wednesday. The concert will be worth doing all the extra requirements this weekend because Adam Levine is singing live! In sparring class it was tough as I haven't had sparring in a while. I had a hard time dealing with the pain as they kicked me, and it was hard for me to kick my partner when they were kicking me. I will sleep good tonight!

White Belt

Today I just started my week of being a white belt. I was in the back of the line in class. It's humiliating to be in the back as a white belt so this is definitely a challenge. It reminded me of when I was a white belt working my way up the belt levels. I am also back from vacation so heavy on the requirements. Also studying the study guides for the written exam coming up.
