This week, Lindsay asked the Tuesday Trainers to take a break from exercise (well, filming exercise, to be specific; I’ll definitely be getting my workouts in this week…) and film ourselves someplace we usually don’t. It’s all part of ‘Adventurous April‘; a challenge from Janetha at Meals and Moves to encourage people to get out of their comfort zones and do something different and new to them.
I don’t know about you, but my life is not very adventure-filled.
Most days, the biggest adventures I partake in involve,
- postponing going to the grocery store, gambling that they’ll be enough milk for coffee in the morning
- hitting the ‘publish’ button on a blog post (what if it sucks?)
- choosing downward dog instead of child’s pose in yoga class
- eating dark chocolate after dinner (it might ruin my sleep)
- ‘winging’ my patterns in step class
Perhaps the only truly adventurous thing I did this week was wear a crop top to the gym (I NEVER bare my belly, so I’m claiming this as an EPIC adventure!).
With the goal of capturing something adventurous on film, I took my camera with me on a recent family outing into town. Understand that I live in the suburbs; heading into Vancouver constitutes an adventure in my books.
As I pieced together and edited my video footage, I realized that I desperately need to get out of my rut. My ‘Adventurous April’ video wasn’t really adventurous at all! See for yourself, then hop on over to Tuesday Trainer and see how much more exciting the other trainers’ lives are! (Note to self, negative advertising is not the way to get people to watch your video or visit your blog)
Have some suggestions to help my April be more adventurous?
Fire away! (that is, leave them in the comments section below)
