I signed up membership with a fitness centre nearby on Monday.
Well, I was actually looking for Yoga classes as I have tried them before my second pregnancy. But then, this fitness centre not only have Yoga classes, it has one other thing that attracted me – Practical Self Defence.
So, I ended up signed up for ‘All-In’ unlimited package as it is more worthy –> cost me less than 100 per month (pay up front for 12 months). I know I am not preserverence when it comes to exercising, so I have decided to do this to make me commit. (I am a very stingy person. By paying 12 months, I will be very ‘samtong’ (sad) if I don’t fully use the benefit!)
Yesterday, I attended my first self defence class (already joined 2 yoga classes earlier). I want to tell everyone – this is a very good and practical class! It is definitely worthy to join!
But then… Well, since young, I was called ‘严重的缺乏运动细胞’ or in Malay we say ‘cacat bola’. Basically I just don’t have any athletic sense. When I played bowling, the ball goes to the back instead of into the lane. When I played squash, the ball hits me instead of me hitting it. When i played tennis, the ball goes high up instead of to the front. When I do high-jump, I hit straight to the pole…
So, what happened yesterday was just too embarassing…
First, when I was supposed to kick the sand bag, my shoe flew out! I had to run to get my shoe and wore it again (with my red face, of course!)
Then, when I was supposed to turn around and kick the sand bag… after I turned around, I immediately fell on the floor – BANG!!!! This time, everyone laughed at me!
And this morning, my whole body is aching! :( I just have to skip today’s yoga class, coz I am just too painful, all over.
