First of all, where did August come from? Seriously, it totally snuck up on me. Between traveling, my yoga immersion, trips to MN for my sister’s pre-wedding events, running & work, somehow the summer seems to have gotten away from me. Eeeeeeeeee….
Anyway…when I started the blog, one of the things I wanted to do right off the bat was organize a challenge that involved doing something every day to get myself outside of my comfort zone. It could be a big thing like skydiving (kind of cliché, but still something I would like to do) or a littler thing like picking up the phone and ordering my veggie pizza with vegan cheese instead of doing it online (seriously, I don’t remember the last time I ordered pizza from an actual human being).
As it turns out, one of the bloggers I follow religiously, Angela at Oh She Glows, had the exact same idea & posted it on her blog today. Rather than completely reinventing the wheel, I’m going to post a link to her site & you can read about the challenge there. I will be posting my progress on the blog & would love to hear from you guys and gals as well. Have you been dying to take a dance class but were too afraid of looking silly? Have your running shoes been collecting dust in the back of your closet? Whatever your fear may be, now is as good a time as any to challenge it.
Cheers to a month of boundary-stretching adventures!
Here is the link to Angela’s blog: http://ohsheglows.com/2012/08/01/the-august-challenge/. In addition to this challenge she has great vegan recipes and a pretty inspiring story about her path to health and wellness.
