Journey Towards Joy: Body

And by tomorrow…I meant in a week. Ooops!

So this brings me to how I wanted to start by saying…my work schedule has been very unpredictable. This is ok, but hard to plan things in advance. Sure does keep me on my toes and make me creative about scheduling laundry and working out and such.

The cool thing is that is makes me creative about my use of time. I have a membership at a regular gym, which I use and I like a lot, but it also has given me the freedom to try new things.

For example, I have attended 2 spin classes- SUPER fun. I have been able to work out with my kids. One kid is a track athlete and has gotten me on the track for sprints.

AND, after 5 years of wanting to try, but never being able to hit the schedule right, I checked out Rowing (Crew for you East Coasters or Brits). I was pretty nervous. Pulling on a ERG is similar but not…and then…

This happened.

It wasn’t as scary as I thought but I did feel very pressured not to screw up…even though we only stroked a total of about 40 times. It’s definitely a cool feeling and I’d like to give it some more time. Gliding across the water feels amazing.

My encouragement is to TRY SOMETHING…anything. If you want to keep your body moving, you have to find something or things you like or enjoy. And that can change, and that’s ok. Don’t get to your 80′s and be full of “I wish I had” or “I shouldas”.

I don’t hate Crossfit, I’m just trying new things. And you should, too. Exercise shouldn’t be a drudgery.
Now get out there…

With Love, and Burpees!
