Slay your Inner Dragons

Saturday, July 18, 2015

Is it me, or did my number of fears increase with my weight? This may be my own personal set of fears, but they are going to get slain (feeling a bit Game of Thrones today!) I have realised that most of the things I fear aren't dangerous, but are linked to my body image, self-consciousness and being judged by other people. I'm not going to risk life and limb, but I'm going to take more risks to seek out my hearts desire (being fitter & healthier)
1. I'm joining a gym, yep not setting the world on fire here, but the thought of being surrounded by fit gum bunnies gives me the fear. Going to face it and conquer it. I have as much right to be there and I am going to go and get fit. I am also going to book climbing lessons at a friends climbing centre. I am making it as hard to back out, as go through with it. I plan to rediscover my inner adrenalin junkie!
2. I'm not going to be afraid to be afraid! Going to feel the whole thing, not supress the fear... If I fail, well I will have had the experience and I will have learnt from it. Big things come from small steps.
3. I'm going to drag Chris and the boys along for moral support and lots of laughs (yep adrenalin makes me laugh a LOT).

Yesterday's challenge was challenging, I found NOT multi tasking strange and had to watch myself all of the time. My boys were certainly confused by me doing one task at a time, I think I did accomplish more, had more time and I felt more focused. I think taking things slower is good once in a while, but I don't think that I could do this every day. I will certainly try to incorporate the 'one thing at a time' practice more into my life wherever possible.

What Inner Dragons would you like to slay?

Have a happy and fun filled Saturday!

    When I joined a gym in May, I was delighted to learn that, while there are gym bunnies there who are perfectly fit, there are also people just like me wanting to be stronger and healthier! I've learned so much, and I have arm muscles now! Who knew!

    Congratulations on finding the courage to slay your inner dragons! Being stronger will help you keep up with the boys! My boy is 9, so I know about this challenge!

    Have a great day!
