Whew, I Made It!

There is a song we sing in my classroom almost daily about going on a Dino Hunt. We walk across a field, ride our galloping horses, swim across a river, climb a rope, and finally tiptoe ever so slowly into a deep dark cave. And after each activity we remind ourselves WE’RE NOT AFRAID! After we creep into the cave we turn on our flashlights and see a dinosaur as it roars, we bolt out of the cave, down the rope, frantically swim across the river, jump onto the horses and when we are far enough away we proclaim WHEW WE MADE IT!!!

I am on a similar daily hunt, not for dinosaurs but for fitness. I joined a new gym and set out for my first adventure in circuit training. I walked into the gym, “I’M NOT AFRAID”. The class started out slow, just a little warm up. “I’M NOT AFRAID”. We start moving from station to station, just like the song running, lifting, climbing, etc. “I’M NOT AFRAID”. The instructor is “ROARING” at me “I’M NOT AFRAID”. The cool down “I’M NOT AFRAID”. As I walk out the door “WHEW I MADE IT” !!!!
