Tried Something New thread

Hey RO community, this thread is dedicated to trying something new, be it small or large!  It can be a new food, new coping strategy, new activity, etc.  I thought it could be exciting to see what other people are trying, and could help to push ourselves beyond our comfort zone.

 

 

 

New thing: I decidied I'm going to try playing football this year just for fun!  I've never played before so I don't really know what I'm doing.  I went out to my first ever training last night and felt pretty awkward because it was completely new to me and I didn't really know anyone but I ended up having a blast and can't wait to go out again tomorrow!

 

 

 

 

Re: Tried Something New thread

Awsome idea @tsnyder

I'm starting pilates tomorrow! I've never done it before but i'm hoping it helps with some of my injuries. A little nervous cause I know i'm not going to be very good at it and a bit limited by my body but looking forward to seeing how it is!

Re: Tried Something New thread

I started training up for a new position in footy, so I'm trying to go up in the ruck, I've been doing heaps of training but finding the training drills pretty hard and I just can't seem to get there. People keep telling me not to bother and i should just go back to what I was doing because I'm probably too short for ruck anyway but I'm going to keep trying. There's no point in giving up, just gotta keep pushing myself.

I made a quiche from scratch today!

Re: Tried Something New thread

I started to learn to roller blade the other week and this week I started a new job!!

This is such an awesome thread @tsnyder! I am really excited to see everyone's new things!

Maybe also why people have chosen the thing they are starting.

I chose roller blading after watching that roller derby movie and thinking how much it isnt me and petrifies me. Plus I wanted to do something with my bf (who is teaching me).

@ClCl saying why is a great idea!  How is it going?

@Stealth_ninja I hope it helps! I did pilates-type stuff for about a year when I had some knee injuries and it really helped.  Let us know how it goes!

@j95  if you want to ruck than go for it!  It sounds like you push yourself really hard, so make sure you look after yourself too!

Re: Tried Something New thread

I also tried cooking something new tonight!!

@tsnyder I don't really have time for people who tell me I can't do things before giving me a chance to prove myself.

Re: Tried Something New thread

@tsnyder I am proud of how much fear I have overcome so far! But I need the support of my bf there to really be able to push myself. I think I am trying to use it as a means of mentally pushing myself more than the physical roller blading itself.

It is interesting all the ones we have mentioned so far involve exercise!

Re: Tried Something New thread

Hey @tsnyder this is great!! Can't wait to hear how the footy goes Smiley Happy I'm sure you'll do great bc you do alot of athletics stuff already right?

 

Well I tried a new tabata gym class this morning and I am almost unable to move.. Anyone done tabata before?

Re: Tried Something New thread

@Lahna thanks for the encouragement!  The running and catching is good but the kicking is definitely sub-par, but I do my best!

 

Was it one of those 'grit' classes where you go 20 seconds on 10 seconds off type of thing? I remember I did one of them once and felt debilitated for about a week
