One thing that I always try to do is keep myself challenged. I have a tendency to get bored when its always the same ol fitness thing. Then when I'm bored, I get into a rut and head back down that old path that I really don't want to take any more. A challenge can be anything. Training for a 5K, or something simple like taking the dog for a walk every day this week. I know I have been quiet for most of this month. But it's because I've been working on a challenge. I have applied for a job at the local YMCA. This week I received an offer to be a substitute water aerobics instructor. I am both excited and scared. I am excited because I LOVE the water and know how much can be done in the water. Even with bad knees a person can jog in the water and get their heart rate up. But I'm also a bit scared because this is totally out of my comfort zone. I have never taught a group class before. Now I'm just waiting for all the paperwork to be filled out and to meet with HR so we can get this ball rolling. I hope it's soon. Even though teaching a group class is outside my comfort zone, that's OK. It's when you step out of your comfort zone that most growth occurs.
