10 Activities I Want To Incorporate In To My Life

The gym has done a lot for me. It sure has. It got me down from a size 16/18 to a size 12 and I'll never thank it enough for that. However, I've come to the realisation that there's a lot more to life than slogging away on a treadmill in a grey room. There's nature. There's adrenaline. We can move in other ways. We can keep fit thanks to other activities. And we can have fun while doing so. Who would have thought that a sense of adventure and fitness would do hand in hand?! But from now on, it does for me!

I remember the only time I tried zip-lining, I didn't actually do it. I was 18 and terrified about everything in life, including running off the ledge. And what got me was that everybody else did it. It was just me, sitting there crying my heart out saying I couldn't do it- and the instructor telling it was all in my head. Now I want a re-do. Bring it on! 'Let go of your disappointments, mistakes and failures. May you find complete healing, renewed spiritual strength and courage to begin again.'- Lailah Gifty Akita

Pole-dancing 
Yes, it's somewhat of a 'sex-kitten' activity. But I can tell you from friends that do it- IT.IS.HARD. The abs that you carve out for yourself...

White Water Rafting
 I tried this once before and was totally freaked out. Fast forward 8 year and I really couldn't care less if I bounced out. As long as someone pulls me back in !

Circus Skills
I mean, how cool?! Performance and athleticism all in one...

Hiking 
I got a taste of this in America last year. It's a massive deal over there. Here, in England not so much. And I wish it would be. I think it's because people my age have horrid grim memories of rainy Duke of Edinburgh weekends. Eurgh. Time to revitalise this activity.

Rock-climbing 
This is the one thing I've been meaning to do for AGES. But things keeps getting in the way!! This is probably the first thing I want to tick off this list. And I WILL make it happen soon.

Skiing 
A favourite with Brits. I had friends back in school who went on annual skiing trips with their families like it was routine. So it comes as a shock that I've never been before! And I really want to try it. Better late than never.

Canoeing 
There's just something about being by yourself or with other person that spikes my adrenaline...

Surfing 
I have such a crush on California. And would love to live out there for a while. And this is the sport I want to be doing to keep myself fit....

Trampolinig 
The only time I tried this was about 15 years ago when I went to school in Dubai. They brought in these trampolines as a treat. Thankfully it's a lot more easy to get your hands on nowadays.
