So I have been taking the stairs instead of the elevator! My office is on the fourth floor and I'm slowly keeping my breath more and more. The first day I lost my breath on the second floor. Now I'm good until the 3rd floor. I'm recovering pretty quickly but recovery has never really been a problem. I have no clue why I seem to sweat like a pig and lose my breath very easily and then recover in 30 seconds flat. It makes me feel like I don't workout hard enough but then I push until I can't push and still recover quickly. I've lost 2lbs since making the switch to the stairs and my ass is getting rounder so this is a total win-win for me :)
Anyways, I conquered the high ropes the week before last. I tried all three challenges and I only fell off of one! I didn't really fall off, I just could not find a way to stand up on the pole for the leap of faith so I just let go. The hardest part of the whole thing was on the first challenge were I was reaching from vine to vine and suddenly the whole ropes course started to shake. I just knew I was going to fall. I held fast! I was shaken as much as humanly possible at the moment. Shaking and 30 feet in the air and I held fast. I'm taking that lesson into my life in general. I can survive anything! I can be shaken and I can survive!
