I dont know if anyone knows but I take karate and I like it alot. I help out with the classes and workout as well. I have not been able to work out because my back was hurting me but pre and post surgery I had to just stay away because I dont know how to NOT get involved.
Today is the 3rd day after surgery. I took a shower and dressed in my karate uniform and drove to the workout place. I helped teach the little kids class. I LOVE that class because the kids just make me so happy. They are cute and innocent and just make me so happy. After the first class I was so tired. I just walked around and corrected them here and there and belt tested one kid for a promotion to yellow belt.
I know I must behave but I dont think I over did anything. I am sleepy now... goodnight.

There I was.... waiting and waiting... anticipation building. I was so nervous that my stomach started turning. I was waiting to take my 2nd degree black belt test. Before me were students that were taking their brown belt and 1st degree black belt tests. I was taking my test with two men.
As time drew near we stood up and began to stretch. Unfortunately my stomach was turning and causing me to build up with gas. In my mind I was more concerned about avoiding the possible most embarassing moment of my life. If I were to punch or kick and do it with speed and power, the gas just might decide to give its own speed and power.
Just before our names were called I paused for a moment in the corner to meditate and push the gas out. Ahh... much better. I took my test, free of embarassment, kicking and punching and shouting like an awesome karate person.
I PASSED!! I PASSED!!! Unfortunately the two men who testing with me did not do so well. But I am now a 2nd degree black belt. I cant even begin to tell you how much this means to me!!!
