Comfort Zones

July 3rd: Update on Getting Uncomfortable in 2014 - What have you done out of your comfort zone this year?

Comfort Zones are a funny thing.  We usually all have them and are often afraid to step away from them - myself included.  I will be honest I haven't done much to step out of my comfort zone this year - maybe this will help inspire me or give me the confidence to step out of my comfort zone more often!

One thing that I did so was join an online challenge group to try and work my way to a healthier life style.  I had to take pictures (and not the flattering kind) and send to my coach.  Never in  a million years would I have thought I would've ever done that - but I did and I am hoping that down the road I will see the results and how far I came and be glad I took the pictures.  Along with those horrid pictures I would take pictures after my work out to show my fellow challengers.  I am by no means a fan of the selfie - but for your viewing pleasure (and a step out of my "zone") here ya go!

Oh oh oh I thought of something else.  I signed up as a coach for a health and fitness company.  For anyone who knows me would probably think what do you know about coaching health and fitness and they would be right.  But here is what I do know - I know that I need to learn more and work at it but I am willing to do that so that I can help others!! I love to help others - I am guilty of always putting others before myself.

Leading me to the next stepping out of my comfort zone - doing things for me!  I am the type of person that constantly puts others in front of me:  my hubby, my kids, my family, friends - even strangers at times.  But I have come to realize that sometimes if I don't put myself first then I won't be any good to those others I so dearly love!

Wow - that was surprising - for not thinking I step out of my comfort zone very often I came up with three things!  Go Me!!

Happy Thursday!!
