If you asked 20 different people for a word to describe me, 'sporty' wouldn't be among the list of adjectives you'd end up with. To be honest, it’s also not what comes to mind for myself. 

And yet, I like being sporty. It always seems like a bad idea before hand, and ends up being a whole lot of fun. I’ve enjoyed team sports, I’ve done well at team sports, and I’ve gotten a lot out of participating – at various sports way back in the day, basketball in my university days, dragon boating more recently.

Mostly though, I tend more toward solitary activities – riding, kayaking, swimming, yoga – not wanting anyone but myself to be let down when I fail. Despite a history of doing well, it seldom occurs to me that I might not fail. I guess that's something to work on this year ... more confidence, more sport, more fun.  


  1. Those are good goals to work on. Right now, the only word that comes to mind to describe myself is Crazy! ;)

    1. Thanks, Yvonne. I'm trying to make healthier choices without beating myself up too badly for the choices that I tend to make (less confidence, more sitting in front of the TV eating ice cream), but, as they say, one day at a time.
