When are you ready for more?

4 weeks ago, I walked into a group workout class with people half my size, not knowing whether I would be able to do the class.  It was a weight and cardio style workout, which on paper seemed incomprehensible for anyone over 300 pounds.  But I modified a few moves and was able to do it - and continued doing it multiple times a week.

Tonight, I walked into a kickboxing class, REALLY not knowing what to expect.  I didn’t even know if my body would allow me to do all the moves.  Was I nervous at first, yes.  Did I know if I would be able to finish the whole thing, no.  But I knew I would never know what I was ready for next, unless I tried it.

Trying doesn’t have to mean potential failure… just means you are figuring out what you can and can’t do at the moment.  And then you try again.
