I don't love roller coasters. I'm afraid of heights and the "thrill" is just not there for me. I am more a ferris wheel girl. I enjoy the feel of the lift way more than the drop. I enjoy the gentle rocking of the bucket. I like being about to look out at the view... just not down... but again, the bucket keeps me looking out.
I think I'm the same way with my exercising. I really don't enjoy fast paced activities. Walks, canoe rides, gardening... they really make me feel good. I have time to think and enjoy and appreciate. I like long distance swimming much more than a race. Knowing this about myself has really helped keep me on track. I tried skiing downhill, tried water skiing, tried team sports like volleyball and basketball. I have tried the fitness classes for zumba and remember all the step classes. I enjoy dancing which seems like an anomoly considering.
And yet... I like trying new things. I tried hoola hooping yesterday. Oh my goodness I am bad at it. DD tried to give me tips. Hahaha.
I'm not sure what I'm trying to say.... just that if I want to succeed I need to keep pushing but know what motivates me?
