Beating The Bag

Have you pushed yourself lately to try something new?

I admit, I’m a creature of habit. I like being comfortable; doing the things that come easy. Like the elliptical at the gym, or riding my bike.

But when my husband challenged me to strap on some boxing gloves and hit the heavy bag, I thought why not?

Truth be told, I didn’t think I’d like it. I thought I’d get bored after a few minutes.

I mean, honestly, how can beating a bag for an hour keep your attention?

After one day of following his lead, I discovered I was wrong about everything.

Boxing was not only extremely difficult – but fun!

The time flew.

For my husband, hitting the bag has always been a part of his exercise routine, but until last week I had never tried it. I am so glad he challenged me to try something new; get out of my comfort zone.

In the process of doing so I discovered something new about “me.”

I like to box!
