“Just Do It”, a very popular tagline from an even more popular company in the 90’s. This is my new motto, to add to an ever expanding list. Consequently, I did my first day of boxing training yesterday. And on my way to, Danny Molina’s class at Premier Combat Center in Omaha, I found myself extremely nervous. Kinda those same feelings you have when your going on that first date, questioning myself and thinking about everything I could do wrong and make myself look like a fool along the way. But I was committed and wasn’t going to turn back. I knew it wouldn’t be as bad as I had made it in my head, but that didn’t make me any less nervous. So why was I nervous? I would like to think it was because I know a ton of the athletes at that gym, and I don’t want them to know how little experience I have in the cage. But it was more than likely because I had no idea what I was doing, When it came right down to it. I had to convince myself to “Just Do It!” I was the only newbie in the class, but I know Danny fairly well, he stepped aside to help me get started, and we were off. It was a grueling workout but all in all it was a great time and I’ll be back in the same class next week.
This last week has been very similar to the last couple; diet I did a rather terrible job on, I found myself saying “I’ll get back on track tomorrow.” But as you know tomorrow never comes, so this week I’m going to work on getting on track “today.” I’m traveling again which could make my life difficult, but I will also be meeting with my nutritionist for the 1st time while I’m in fabulous Las Vegas, so hopefully he can give me a more clear cut direction on what I need to be doing. I will say with the conditioning I’ve been doing a fairly good job, I believe I conditioned 4 days of the last 7, but I am including Boxing last night. I would like to get that up to 5-6 days a week soon, but for right now I really need to focus on getting my diet right.
Tip of the week –
My tip this week is “Just Do It” I’m not one to speak on overcoming and getting things done, but if you have something you want to do, obviously make sure it’s a smart decision. Don’t let nerves keep you from achieving your goals. My “overcoming-fears” goal with this Las Vegas Trip is to make at least 15 good contacts in my time there.
