1. Go to at least one Zumba class (I completed two)
2. Try six new recipes (I have pictures on my camera to share, although, I am not sure I reached six – shame on me!)
3. Improve my balance (this one is a touch harder to measure, per se, although I do feel like it has improved – and I have been actively working on it since the “challenge”)
4. Jump rope successfully (I was *so* close to this one when I was instructed to avoid jumping and running with the bad knee! I was able to jump with both feet and continuously for at least 45 seconds before my feet caught the rope. All in all there was still significant improvement)
I would have loved to say all of my goals were met and exceeded, but that is certainly not the case. I still feel a little disappointed about the whole jump-roping thing, but there is nothing I can do about that. Once I get the green light for the knee, I will definitely be revisiting that goal! I will also continue working on my balance (especially doing power yoga every Monday night with Denise and Aaron).
Did you participate in Karen’s “challenge”? If so, what goals did you set for yourself, and did you meet them?
