Free time? I think not!

As I finished with my application, and wrap up my lease, I am having less stress and more relaxing time.
I have learned my alphabet for Korean, and now I just need to learn at least 10 words a day. (Then I will know 300 in a month), and I will be pleased with myself.
But, as winter is leaving, and spring is installing itself, I realized that soon enough, it will be "bikini season".
I've never been ashamed of my body, so I never really feared bikini season as most girls do. I don't jump on the treadmill to lose my calories.
This year though.

I will get fit. Not for the sake of a nice body (I am good with what I got), but for the sake of running for more than six seconds without collapsing. I know. I am terribly out of shape, and for once I am ready to change that. I've said the same thing last year, and I lost some weight, but not because I worked out, because I stopped pigging out.

This time, I enrolled my little brother as my coach.
Do you remember those coaches you see on TV. The really mean ones. That's him.
Called me a wuss for not being able to do push ups. GIRL PUSH UPS. The one who get on your knees... Yeah. I can't even do those.
He added time to my wall seats because I could't last a whole minute at a 90 degree angle.

The good thing about enrolling someone like him is that I know he won't let me slack off. He has so much passion for working out, and being in shape, that I know he will make sure I get trim and that I will be able to run.

The bad thing about this is that I will never get out of it now. Failure is not an option, or he will make fun of me forever.

I am sore today, but not as much as I expected. It was a lot worst when I went skiing.
So now, the hour after/before dinner is busy from my intensive ab/leg/arm circuit.

So you better wait for a post about my intensive running session!
