Boxing and Bluegrass

It’s been 2 weeks since I posted my Year of Single bucket list. So far I have a knocked two items off my bucket list.

1.) Try boxing

23.) Attend a concert of someone I’ve never heard of. 



I have taken on 2 different kinds of classes. Body combat and standard boxing with a bag. Both have taught me a number of things.

1.) Your mind will try to make you want to quit so much. There was one class a few days ago that I felt myself want to cry after the 7th round of burpees and jabs. I just wanted to quit. I considered walking out of the class several times. I didn’t, but I wanted to.

2.) I’m way stronger than I think I am. 45 minutes in when your trainer asks you to do 15 push-ups and all you want to do is cry and lay down on the mat, it is amazing what strength comes from pure determination.

3.)Boxing sore is the sorest you will ever be. I punched a bag for 45 minutes…with my arms. Why is my whole damn body sore?

Attending a concert of someone I’ve never heard of 

I went out with three of my amazing friends to a bluegrass concert a few weekends ago. Apparently they were famous people from other bands? Not entirely sure on that. It was a lot of fun! We drank, we danced and one of my friends and I met some lady in the bathroom and talked to her for a very long time. Not sure how long, but it felt like a long time. We definitely spent a long time with this woman showing pictures of our pets to each other.

Mainly, what I learned from this experience is that I have an amazing group of girlfriends whom I love to spend time with and be silly with.

I’m excited to do something else from my bucket list…what should it be next?
