Some months ago, I took the 200 Squats Challenge. After one update, you have not heard me talking about it again until now, right? Suffice to say that I failed miserably but I'm not taking it so hard. It's a challenge I took and one that I had to give up after the 3rd week, when my knees are already screaming at me. Doing squats is probably one of the best exercises there is, but for one who has injured her knees previously, taking that challenge was a bit of suicide, at least when it comes to my knees.
Well, there I was, resigned to the fact that I cannot finish that challenge and that I would never be able to put up that badge. So what? There's more to life than doing squats right? (Do I sound like I'm sour graping? lol). Well, truth of the matter is, there are other fitness challenges I could take. It just took a while until I found out about Tribesports through Stumbleupon.
Curiosity got the better of me so I signed up. After figuring things out for a while, I started looking up for challenges and wow! They have tons of challenges for certified couch potatoes to the extremely sporty types. You get to choose the challenges you like to take. I suggest you start with the manageable ones before taking on the REAL challenges.
I'd like to see you there. It's really fun and the community is just awesome. And just so you know, being fit is not only for the body. They have a tribe of book lovers there as well. Why, mental health is also part of fitness right? And finding a community of like-minded people to encourage you might just be the kind of motivation you need to live healthier and become more fit and active.
