I sat in the parking lot, absolutely terrified.
My palms were sweaty, my heart was racing, my brain was going crazy. After ten minutes, I finally mustered up my 20 seconds of courage, yelled at myself, got out of the car, and walked through the double doors.
I was getting ready to try something I had always wanted to do but had been too scared.
I attended my first swing dance class.
An hour later, I left a sweaty mess…a sweaty mess with a giant smile on my face.
With today marking the beginning of another 6-week challenge on Nerd Fitness, I want to discuss exercise that isn’t exercise, and another big excuse that we all hear too often.
