What Happens When We Move Off-Center While SUPing?



What happens when we move off-center while SUPing? 

IMBALANCE.

At the beginning of a SUP lesson, I always remind people to stay centered on their board. While it seems pretty easy to remember, it actually is not. The reason for this is because you're learning so much information at one time. You're getting comfortable with new equipment in a new environment. That is not an easy task!

Since this piece is invaluable for your success as a SUP'er, I wanted to make a video further illustrating this imperative point so hopefully my silly dance moves will pop into your mind to help you remember to check your balance while you're SUPing! Check out my two-step dance demonstrating how a SUP board will react to you moving toward the nose (front) and the tail (back) of the board. 



Let this be a reminder to look where your feet are while SUPing, so you can stay centered and balanced at all times. :)

Ready to SUP?

Paddle Boarding Power Treat

Paddle boarding is a treat. So is chocolate and peanut butter. Fortunately for us paddle boarders, blending these ingredients together sets us up for an enjoyable paddle sesh with lasting energy. Yassss!  I discovered this decadent chocolate peanut butter smoothie on WhatTheForkFoodBlog.com when I was curious what Pinterest recipes could satisfy my peanut butter craving. 

Once made, I discovered the amazing benefits. One smoothie is packed with enough protein to offer sustainable energy from breakfast to lunch. If you drink prior to your next paddle sesh, you'll find yourself out in the water longer! (What's better than that??)  

Check out the ingredients + instructions for
 this paddle boarding power treat!

Precise Ingredients
  • 1/2 C Quaker Gluten Free Quick 1-Minute Oats
  • 1 C ice cubes
  • 1 C 1% milk or unsweetened coconut milk**
  • 2 Tbsp natural peanut butter or peanut butter powder*
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp honey (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions: 

  1. Add the oats to the blender canister and blend until they become a fine powder.
  2. Add the ice, milk, peanut butter, cocoa powder, honey, and vanilla extract and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Special thank YOU to Sharon at What The Fork Food Blog for creating a divine treat that is actually healthy and decadent! Be sure to try this paddle boarding power treat for breakfast or if you're about to hit the water. It's always smart to fuel up before exploring on your board so you can stay in top shape for an enjoyable time.  :) Until then, if you need a SUP rental for this weekend or are interested in finally learning how to paddle board, simply book it by selecting the yellow button at the top right hand corner of my page.  Have a wonderful day, SUP'er!!

What Happens When We Get Out of Our Comfort Zone


What happens when we get out of 
our comfort zone?

Hello, fear. I see you

For me, it comes in the form of tricky little messages like: 
"who are you to be big? who are you to shine? what do you know? stay small, people like you better that way."

How does it show up for you?

It's important to really think about this because...any time you step out of your comfort zone, you'll face these little subtle yet, oh-so-impactful messages that want to keep you small. 

Don't indulge these fears. 

Instead, smile at them. 

Then..try this on for size:

Trust.
Trust in your gut. You want to try something new that you've never done before? Do it. Even if you're nervous. Even if you don't get it on the first try, the second try, or the 40th time. Just do it.

Balance.
Balance by finding your center. 
Through the nerves, through the fear, your center is the place to go back to when you feel afraid. Balance through your center to remain steady with your goal.

Expand.
Once you've found your center...your home...your safe place, it's time to E X P A N D. Try more, try better, try new.

Let Go. 
When you've done your best, let it all go. 


What happens when we get out of our comfort zone is: we grow. Life becomes richer. You become wiser. Those are valuable treasures that no one can take from you. 

Ready to try paddle boarding? Book a private lesson with me or sign up for my beginner class starting next weekend! Looking forward to enriching your life and watching you get out of your comfort zone. ;)

Amanda
