3 Bumps

Brag time again :)

So I've been going to taekwondo for 3 weeks now. One week I didn't go due to my son's week of cub scout day camp. I found out today (weekly weigh in) that I've lost 4 pounds and almost an entire point off my BMI.

Not putting too much stress on the weight loss, just logging for the hell of it.

Also, my 5 year old AND my husband have all three of their stripes in basics, form (1/2 for her), and one steps. I'd have all three as well, but I was still a little shaky on my third one-step. One steps are the basic blocks of sparring. Hubby got an hour of one-on-one instruction at the adult only class while I took our daughter to her swim lesson.

I'm so proud of ALL of us.

  • Thanks, I hope so! This is one rank I'm really looking forward to. Our fit test is August 23 and our belt test is the 24th or 25th. Not sure which day we will be doing ours.

  • shouting --You can do it JulieJacobKyle!


    Our next testing in Sept 15th. Should be Sept 8th but there's a tournament that day in Albany, OR. Hubby and I would like to go, but the cost is going to b too much, we think. We'd have free lodging, but between tournament fees, gas and food it's mroe than we can do right now. It would be fun though, he and I both would be the only ones in our bracket.

  • Good job! We've got a fit test that we have to pass before our next rank, so I've been busting my ass to get my numbers up, but I have also been stress eating so I haven't seen any change in my weight.
