I think it is time to mix it up a little bit! I’ve signed up to take a scuba diving class that starts this Friday. I’ve tried several times in the last 15 years to get certified, but I think that being in better shape and more in control of my body should help with the panic attacks. I hope the instructor isn’t reading this. I swear, nobody died – that time. This will be the first time I’ve tried it since my honeymoon in 1998. I think 12 years is long enough that I’ve forgotten why I was afraid.
Coincidentally, there was also a Groupon today for a 6 week course of belly dancing. So I bought one of those for $25. I can start the class anytime between now and the end of the year, so I can start after boot camp is over. If anyone wants to do it with me, I’m looking at an evening course, 6:30-7:30pm starting sometime in October or November. I am flexible about the day of the week (though I don’t think they have one on Saturdays, which is odd, so I’ll check on that.)
There’s also a Momapedia offer for Atlanta Rocks. That one is $60 for a month’s membership and rental and an intro lesson. I was thinking that since I signed up for the Warrior Dash next spring, I really need to learn to climb over things. Again, I’ve got some issues, like vertigo, which MIGHT be a problem. (I think it might be something like that episode of Big Bang Theory when Sheldon tried rock climbing….) Still, I’m tempted to just TRY it.
I think those are all good signs. Wanting to try new things. Things that get me moving and having fun.
Speaking of getting moving, I am running late today. Stayed up late (too wired after boot camp and a just a tad sore) and then slept late. So gotta put my skates on and get out of the house.
Have a great day!
