I have become a boxing addict! Not because of Manny Pacquiao. :) Just because.
As much as my schedule would allow, I try to have classes 3x a week. But Jack, my wonderful boxing instructor, wants me to do at least 4x a week, minimum. And the sport is no easy feat, believe me. For those who have tried boxing, you know what I'm talking about. It can be absolutely exhausting! Learning the footworks, jab, straight, hook, uppercut, etc etc. Not to mention all the circuit exercises and the hellish ab workouts! But it's all worth it, knowing that my body will benefit from it all. You'll just love what it can do to your arms and your back. And of course the way you feel about yourself! I'm many months away from a six-pack, but I feel lighter, leaner and oh-so-sexier! :)
Pam and I had a falling-out of some sort a few years back. Now, we have become gym buddies and have renewed our friendship. And it always feels wonderful, knowing you've gained a friend. Before, you'd never find us talking to each other for more than 15 minutes. Now, we try to schedule a "date" every week. :) Some might say friendship doesn't grow overnight. But I can say we've outgrown being enemies and are mature enough to work on being friends. We'll take it by the day.
Happy birthday, Pammy! It's so nice to be friends with you again. :)
