It’s never too late to create new goals

As a hispanic child I never did any kinds of sporting activities or band or anything involving extracurricular activities. I was never interested in those things as a kid and plus my father could not afford to put me into any activities as a single hispanic of two children. When I became a mother I was excited about putting my kids into activities so I could see them do what makes them happy. When my daughter asked about Tae Kwon Do I thought it was a great idea and something different than the normal dance classes and swim teams. After watching her about a month I came to a realization that it is never too late for me to join in activities. I just turned 36 and have never really accomplished much other than creating my beautiful family. I realized that just because I wasn’t active as a kid, doesn’t mean that I can’t be as an adult. I thought about it for days before finally making the choice and signing up for the class myself. I was nervous my first day of course, but there were other women my age there who were beginners too, so that helped. My daughter is in my class as well and it has been so much fun being able to learn and work together putting all of the stresses of home life away for two hours a week.

When I first began I was 164 pounds and I was very much out of shape. I would be sore the day after class. The fitness portion of the class had me hurting, but I kept going and I am still going to class. With the help of Advil I have never missed a day and I have just passed my first test for my first belt. I look forward to many years of earning belts along side my daughter.

Our instructors are great. Senior Master Gonzalez is a ninth degree black belt and my goal is to be at least a black belt by the time I am 40. I feel comfortable with a Hispanic instructor because it reminds me a lot of my family. I feel at home when I walk into the dojang. The past three months have been great. My attitude has changed, I have since then began a diet and started working out more, losing 24 pounds.

Advil *Among OTC brands helps with my aches and pains and especially the pain I have in my hip from a childhood accident. Even when we are working on our kicks in class, I know I can relieve any discomfort with Advil. Advil has many varieties of products for different types of pain that can be found at your local Walmart. They had an end cap for Advil *Use as directed that was easy to see, plus it could also be found in the aisle. 

Are there any goals you have for your future, such as mine of being a Taekwondo Black Belt? Have you ever felt like you were too old to do something that is usually for young people? Do not let that discourage you. It is never too late to achieve a goal, to start something new, to begin a happy healthy, pain free life. See how others are using Advil in the Hub.
