Dying. Kung fu is gonna kill me.

Unfortunately, I've had to cut the pole dancing classes, as I don't have the money or the time to do both anymore. -_-

But kung fu is still going strong at three times a week on my non-Lottery weeks.

To recap, I've been doing kung fu for nearly two months now. (I know.. it doesn't seem like that long at all.) In that two months, I've dropped 20 pounds, a pants size and a half, and gained tone, endurance, flexibility, and pride.

Of course, it's a pride tempered constantly by the thought of "I don't know sh*#."


Today I started the process of learning my first actual form in kung fu. Called 'Little Red Fist', it has over 300 different moves.

I've learned the first three. Basic stances really..

1. Long stance..

This one is fairly simple.. GREAT stretch for the legs, very strong, grounded stance.. Also very LOW.. weight is distributed evenly between your feet.

2. Square stance..

This one is also not so hard.. Difficult to HOLD for long periods though. FANTASTIC for toning legs and ass, and also good at building endurance.

and 3. T stance..

THIS ONE is going to KILL me. It's low, all your weight is on your back leg. You have to be able to pick up your front foot without effort. THIS one is hard.

At least for now.. I have to be able to do all three of these well before I can proceed.

We'll see how long it takes.

For now though? I'm going to go soak my poor, tired muscles in a bath and pray for a quick death.

Are you going to have these moves down by the time you get to D*C? That's pretty awesome/crazy that you're learning how to do that stuff. I can only imagine that your balance is going to be EXCELLENT afterwards!

Keep up the good work pretty lady!
