Le Comfort Zone

A friend of mine showed me this image a year ago…. 

I have committed to myself that the next 12 months would be about fully stepping out of my comfort zone. I am so accustomed to doing things that are a part of the norm but I don’t want to be normal. When I finally do decide to step out, the first setback has me crawling back. Here are a few ways that I am taking a leap out of my comfort zone.

1) BLOGGING

To all the people that blog on a regular basis….I salute you! Trying to connect to people you don’t really know with words is not easy.

2) GOALS

Setting goals are easy but telling people your goals is much harder. I would usually avoid telling people my goals because they would hold me accountable. I’m prepared to hear that I am full of s***.

3) OLYMPIC LIFTING

My initial intention was to do powerlifting (bench, squat & deadlift), which are lifts that I enjoy doing, my competitive comfort zone. Olympic lifting will force me to work on technique in a way that will possibly take me months before I get it together. With the motivation from WCF coaches, I’ve decided to focus on becoming a competitor in Olympic lifting. 

4) VIDEOS & PHOTOS

I would avoid posting too many photos and or video of me lifting and changes to my body. Does it make me vain?   I hope not. I want to share my progress and hopefully motivate others to try something new (corny right?).

  
5) NUTRITION

This is the real struggle…I weight 160# and I feel it. If I embrace a healthy lifestyle the rest is a cakewalk. Once upon a time I did but you know how that goes. 

Here we go!
