Day 1: X-Mas Exercise Challenge

 Hi everyone, so I’m not a big video person or tech savvy, but I will work on it! I’m looking to start an exercise challenge to get ready for the new year. So each day I will be posting an exercise challenge and possibly something mentally challenging puzzle etc. 

​This year I am looking to have my best year mentally and physically! Hope you will join me for this journey!
This first video is my first challenge nothing crazy but if your currently a non exerciser or exerciser it is a great metabolism booster.

Snuba Diving

Snuba Diving in Nassau, Bahamas

Who doesn’t love a little adventure, travel, and a new challenge?

I recently went on my first cruise – which was very exciting and a lot of fun and decided to do some excursions. I have never heard of this before, but it was definitely interesting and left you wanting more. It was exciting to try going farther under the water without the training of scuba diving or limitations of snorkeling. The breathing was definitely challenging if you are not a seasoned swimmer.

I still get an adrenaline rush and surge of excitement thinking about it. I will admit I was not as successful with it as I would have liked to been or expected. The sites underwater are amazing though and made me feel like I was in a different world. I want to continue practicing this and be able to go farther down at some point. One of the coolest things about it is how it challenges your brain to take over your anxiety and to control your breathing. I feel this is a skill and an art that can not be easily mastered by everyone.

If your travelling somewhere and looking for excursions make sure you check it out! I attached the link to company and location we used! Have fun!
