I cyber wandered over to Oh She Glows and got sucked into the pages and pages and pages of archives that Angela has accumulated over the years and bookmarked and printed lovely and inspiring recipes that I can't wait to try. Then I came across her Fitness Bucket List post and decided it would be fun to create my own bucket list while I'm collecting enough photos of my sickytime eats to post.
So here we go, my Fitness Bucket List:
1. Take classes in an MMA Gym
I am lucky to have a really great trainer that has taught me A LOT about fighting. I am very confident in the skills that I've acquired over the past few years. However, there are lots of benefits to training with people that will throw punches back ;) I'd like to supplement my personal training with classes at an MMA gym because I think I'd be able to learn a lot sparring with other people (more on this later).
2. Start to train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
I've been floating around the idea of trying out Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and learning more about it.
And you better believe I'd rock the pink Gi like these ladies!
3. Spar with a sparring partner - learn more about how to fight against an actual human being instead of a heavy bag or pads
I have wanted to spar for a long time but there are no women at the gym that I go to that are basically at a sparring level. It's not that I'm all that phenomenal because I've got A LOT to learn...it's that my goals in fight training are different than theirs.
4. Participate in a legitmate boxing bout
I really do eventually want to fight in a legit bout. I feel pretty confident that my boxing can get to a place where I am 100% confident getting into a ring. It is a dream of mine to really finish this journey. I don't tell a lot of people about this, but it is at the forefront of my mind every single time I walk into that gym.
This picture motivates me every time I see it :)
This just looks like a really fun way to start running races. I would love to participate in this one day!
6. Indoor Rock Climbing
7. Have a membership with a Yoga Studio
8. Run a 5K
9. Learn How To Surf (I know I've mentioned this before!)
10. Get Around By Bike Instead of a Car
I would love to be able to rely on a bicycle more than a car in the future. Great for my health and the environment.
Kind of love this pink Cadillac cruiser ;)
I'm sure there are a ton more but my brain is a little foggy right now. Hopefully I'll be back with some food tomorrow. I figured I'd wait another day so I can supplement today's sad showing because I had pretty much zero appetite.
Have a good night and thanks for the well wishes. I'm not sure if I'm staying home tomorrow, I'll see how I feel when I wake up.
