I admit: I’m not the sportiest person ever. I’m not sporty, period. I didn’t hate PE back when I was in school, but I don’t particularly like it. Sure, I have some “favorite” sports, but it was only for fun, nothing for competition. Yes, sports = fun. No competition, please.
So for the entire 21 years of my life, I have “played” the following sports (the ones in boldface I actually enjoyed):
- Track & Field
- American Football (seriously, we had this one back in high school)
- Table Tennis
- Dancesport (well, it is a sport)
- Ice Skating
- Roller blading
- Dodge Ball
Out of sixteen, that’s only seven. How…un sporty. Haha. Don’t get me wrong, I love being able to sweat it out and do some physical activity (endorphins ahoy!), but I’m just a bit too uncoordinated and a bit of afraid to get any sports related injuries (like simply falling on my face, which was what happened during my rollerblading days).
But right now, I’m actually surprised at myself for engaging in sports all of a sudden. Like bowling, which I started doing back at the office, just for kicks. And now boxing, much thanks to my brother’s persuasion. No, I’m not competing, but I’m just going boxing in lieu of going to the gym in an attempt to get fit and lose weight. Of course, I spent a somewhat ridiculous amount of money (which could also probably buy me a Ping Golf equipment, if only I play golf too) for my boxing gloves and my gel-supported handwraps, but after my first boxing session, I’m not regretting it. :) Yes, even the body pain is worth it.
I’m up for boxing again on Tuesday night with my brother. I’m gonna check the prices of the boxing gym near the office so when I go on night shift, I can go there and go boxing on my own. Wanna come and join me? :)
