Roller coasters

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

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?

    I like the activities that give me time to get lost in thought. I am looking into joining a weight loss group in my community. There seems to be more success in numbers!
    Have a great day!

    I'm with you, my dear! Do NOT like roller coasters, but when the kids were little, I didn't want them to be deprived of the experience because their Mom didn't like 'em! So, you adapt. Just like you have to do in life! You are wise to realize that if you don't try it, how will you know if you like it . . . or not!

    Great blog!
