Sacramento Martial Arts and Karate

It has been too long since I've posted--I'm still on the march, & still chipping away at UBBT goals.  Preparing for this post gave great opportunity for some reflection.  The strengths so far have been: repetitions of basics and adding kata (~50%).  Although behind in crunches, I am able to do more in a stretch that I had before (thanks to one of Ms. Clark's class workouts, which helped me raise the bar). I am nearing 40% here and see myself quickly getting on track. I'm also really enjoying my bike-riding, and can see some longer rides in the future.

My weak points have been:  the push-ups--harder to crank out a high number; the meditation/prayer time (it happens but not recorded consistently); and the acts of kindness (I do them and notice them, I just forget to write them down). The percentage mark is lower in these categories than I would like, and I will need to dig down to get these on track.

That is the quantitative report.  Qualitatively, I can see the effect of UBBT on my life's order.  Progress on my project goals has resulted in my work office being much more organized--I am able to easily find what I need to tackle the challenges of the workday in a calm and clear manner--better results for everyone and less stress for me!  I have incorporated more daily discipline into both my home and work life, and seem to be enjoying more aspects of journey, including the ones that are more routine.

Glad to hear all the updates, especially the qualitative. That must feel good. You rock! Maybe raise the bar even higher?
