Facing the Rockwall

Hello Everyone!

Today I climbed a rockwall for the very first time! I have never even considered doing this before my weight loss journey because of the following rationale: a) “I’m not athletic” b) “I’m too fat” c) “I don’t have muscle” and d) “I don’t want to.” What a transformation! xD

Omigosh!!! Climbing the rockwall is so much harder than it looks! I attempted it twice and made it to the same point both times. My limbs felt like jelly and my hands were sweaty and slipping on the rocks. I had to call it quits when neither my arms nor my legs could pull me up to the next foothold. -_-;

When I came back down the attendant asked me if I went farther than I thought I would. I agreed – but then I wondered why I did. I never planned on going only 3/4 of the way up – I was shooting for the top!

Afterwards I went to the pool and chatted about my first experience with another swimmer. She advised that the secret to climbing the wall is all in the legs and that I shouldn’t have been relying on my arms to pull myself up at all. I was like “Ohhh… okay.” (totes nOOb lol) Since the rockwall is at my gym I’ll have the opportunity to try again later. With some more practice I know that I’ll eventually reach the top. 🙂

Check three y’all!

Thanks for reading!
