Surfing With Friends

Surfing With Friends

surfer beachOne of the things my friends and I have been talking about is trying to find some things to do that we haven’t done but that we think would be entertaining.  One of my friends said that he has always wanted to learn to surf and when he said that the rest of us were just like “yes, yes that sounds amazing.”  But we didn’t know where you would go to learn something like that because it’s not like there are just surf schools around where they give you lessons.

My friend said he had already looked into it and apparently there are actually surf camps where you can go and they’ll teach you everything you need to know.  It is the kind of thing that would be fun, but would be really awesome with your friends, so we are going to try and plan a trip to this Costa Rica surf camp and see if we can learn to surf.

None of us has ever surfed so we really don’t know what we are getting into, but just from watching people surf it always seemed like something that would be really entertaining so we are all wanting to give it a try.  That idea was actually so good that we didn’t even bother thinking of anything else we want to do.  It all became a talk about learning to surf and how we were going to do it.  I think that one of my friends has been doing some research online and he’s going to show us some of the places where they will teach you how to surf and we’re going to pick the best one.  I’m leaning toward one that is in a nice place so that we can get a little bit of exciting adventure in, too, but it doesn’t really matter to me as long as we all go and it’s a lot of excitement.  I think that I’m also going to have to see if I can get some information about where we will be saying.  I know that some of them have hotels or resorts or whatever that they work with but I want to make sure we have a good hotel or whatever available.  I will probably be tired after trying a new sport like that and I’m going to want a place with a super comfy place to sleep!  My other friend said that he’s going to make fun of us if we fall but I’m sure he will be falling because he’s just a beginner.

Weights And Workouts

Weights And Workouts

I was talking to some people at work the other day about exercising and I am going to start.  I just need to come up with a workout plan that will work for me. I would like to get stronger, get in a bit better cardio condition, and maybe even lose a few pounds although that would just be a benefit and not my main purpose.  It turns out there is a group of people around here who all work out together and they said I was welcome to join them if I want so I think I am going to talk to them and see what happens.  One of the things I want to do is make sure that I have proper form if I am going to be lifting weights because even though I don’t know much about working out, I know that having good form is important.

I also need to find out how you are supposed to set up a workout in order to get the best gains.  I have heard some people say you should workout in the morning and other people say at night.  I don’t know who you can believe about that but I’m sure that it’s all probably good for different purposes.

I also need to find out if there is any special equipment I need.  I figure I will need some clothes to exercise in and the right kind of shoes but I don’t know if I will need anything else.  I think that the gym probably has everything that I will need.  Some of the people in the group that I mentioned work out at a gym that is pretty close by so I think I am going to go check it out.  It’s probably pretty decent since everyone goes there.

Really though, the only other thing I need to find out about is if I need to take any special shakes or anything.  I was reading about garcinia cambogia and I think it’s more for weight loss so I’m not sure if I’m going to be taking it but there are a lot of things like that so I want to see if I need any and if so, which ones.  The best nutrition is probably just eating food but who knows.

So I’m pretty excited about starting to work out.  Running is not really my idea of fun but I know it’s something I want to do to have a complete exercise program.
