Purchasing the Lotus, Pt. III

Motivation. Its what spurns us to action. Buying the Lotus isn't very logical. In fact its rather the opposite - an emotional pursuit - something I endeavor to cultivate and incorporate into my otherwise brilliant existence. Interestingly enough, emotional people tell me I'm not very emotional. According to the link, I am emotionally well-adjusted, which would probably appear non-emotional to those who aren't.

But slipping into an Elise I've read is an entirely contortionist maneuver, something my frame isn't going to assist. So while I cannot do anything about my height or broad shoulders, I can decrease my overall circumference. My co-worker Miguel (of Miguel and Estanislao fame) sold his house after being on the market ONE DAY. Encouraged, I began working in earnest toward my goal.

Donning my dobok, I loaded Kenpo-X and did the entire hour-long routine five (5) times this week. Yes, my body now aches something fierce. That's how it was the first month of Taekwondo; achy. So maybe I'm finally on the right track? I just know its easier to maintain horse-stance for 10-minutes throwing punches when you're dressed appropriately.

Since there were no visible results my somewhat lackadaisical first six weeks, I'm hoping this emotionally-backed symmetry of motion will prove to be more amenable to Lotus ownership when the time comes.

Charyot!

Raa! Victory shall soon be yours!

Maintaining your health is a long term change, something you have to get in the habit of doing daily, or at least regularly. It's good to see you caring enough to put forth the effort.

people like to tell me, when i get frustrated about not seeing results as soon as i'd like, that i didn't get where i am overnight, so i shouldn't expect to get out of it overnight either. sigh. somehow that never helped my attitude - maybe it works better on you?

congrats on going for it. as someone else has told me, we're kind of like an aging jalopy, we need some tender loving care.

perhaps someday i'll have some of my own wisdom to relay.

Trying to change my attitude toward exercise myself. I was never against it, and often enjoyed it - as long as it didn't interfere with anything else. Well, you can imagine how sporadic that can get. I have decided to try to elevate it to the same priority as going to work or taking in nutrients. Tomorrow, marks my first day into exercise as a priority.

I have no Lotus endeavors as motivation - but there are others that will suffice. :D
