Trying Something New

Trying Something New

So most of you have heard me talk about this fitness challenge I’ve been doing at KORE Wellness. Never being one to back down from a challenge, I decided to try it. Now let me step and say I know that I don’t need to lose a bunch of weight. However, the last few months had worn me down and though I had worked really hard to get my emotional self back in check, I needed a kick in the butt to get myself physically in check.

The toughest part of the challenge for me wasn’t even the workouts (though they could be brutal) it was the cooking. It was like doing a Bikram challenge in my kitchen. Why? Because I don’t cook. . And when you teach 25 classes a week, you don’t have time to cook. But then there’s the whole not backing down from a challenge thing…so I dove in and amended the meal plans so they’d work with my schedule…..and I began cooking, like more than boiling water (which I had perfected). I tried all sorts of new foods. I played with recipes and was even gifted some real cutting knives and other supplies for my birthday. I’ve used my Vitamix, oven and pots more in the past 3 weeks than in the 11 years I’ve lived in my house.

Here’s what I was reminded of: Don’t be afraid to try something new. To eat something new To learn something new.

Stagnation is my all time biggest fear. If I don’t keep learning and growing, I don’t know what will happen to me. I actually will probably never go back to completely surviving off of cereal and pasta. Not with my new skills. That’s the thing about acquired knowledge and experience, no one can take it from you.
