But then I took a spur of the moment beach vacation with my son. Sometimes all it takes is a different view, change of perspective, and/or a breath of fresh air.
I know, I know, in my last post I said we were being totally broke and boring during spring break. But I couldn't help myself and had to get away! Something inside me just screamed, GO. Have you ever had a "just-go" moment?

Here's me at our local racquet club. I really enjoy the facility! So today after delving into NASM Essentials of Personal Fitness Training, I decide to give push-ups on a stability ball a shot. First attempt, I managed two. Second attempt? I about manage to fall flat on my face. Nice. Thankfully the club consists mostly of the older population, so no big competition to laugh at me. Often times, we never start projects or we hesitate on taking chances because we don't feel ready. I did NOT feel ready to try push-ups on that ball. But I did it a third time and managed to squeak out five. Maybe you don't have any issues with stability balls, maybe I have terrible form right now. Maybe I don't feel ready, but I am pushing on. (((ha ha get it? Pushing on? Like push-ups?? oye. I could have been a stand up comedian. Okay, maybe not, but you have to admit it was a little humorous, right?))) When does anyone ever feel really, ready for any challenge set before us? Okay, I said I would keep this on a lighter note. But I just feel compelled to let you know that it is OKAY to not feel ready. Feelings come and they go. But you must push through and try and try again. You just might surprise yourself in the end.
