I have made some pretty bold and scary goals for myself this year. One being starting a healthy living blog and the second being training for Triathlon. At such a high-level, both are extrememly intimidating and overwhelming.
A willingness to take risks is ingrained in my approach to life… but it doesn’t make the action of taking risks any less scary!
I am shifting from simply living a healthy lifestyle to documenting it in a way that is helpful and inspiring; and for Triathlon, I am shifting from just running to also swimming and cycling
Do something scary. Take a risk and try something you suck at, or something you’ve been avoiding.
For me, swiming is foriegn. I never swam lengths. I’d never swim for exercise. I truely and simply sucked at it. Any excuse in the book to get out of swimming, I used it. It’s been about 6 months now that I’ve given swimming a go… and I officically don’t hate it… in fact, I think I’m actually starting to love it!
Trying something new takes courage. It is a commitment to your self-improvement. Start with something small and see what a difference it can make to your confidence.
What will your something new be? Making smoothies for breakfast? Signing up for a course? Cooking with coconut oil instead of olive oil?

Excellent site you have here but I was curious if you knew
of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other
experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations,
please let me know. Thank you!
Hello! Unfortunately, I’m not sure about available discussion forms. I will take alook this weekend though… if anything stands out, I’ll be sure to get back to you.
