I should take up an active hobby, preferably one involved in sports.
This is what I realized during my first few weeks on being on a diet. The pounds won’t come off as fast as I would like them too. Somebody suggested I do some exercise at least 30 minutes a day, four times a week. The weight I lost doubled in the week I followed her suggestion. Since I get tired of anything monotonous like walking on the treadmill, I realized I should take up a sport.
And then I saw a video a cousin of mine posted on Facebook. She was surfing! And I knew then that I wanted to learn surfing. I messaged her for details and she replied that she wasn’t actually surfing but wakesurfing. Sounds new to your ears? Basically, she explained that wakesurfing as a cross between wakeboarding and surfing. The board resembles a surfboard you would use in the ocean but the waves you ride are produced by the boat. You do not have to go to beaches known for its waves. You just need a boat like what you need when wakeboarding, and do such actions until you are riding on top of the water, from the waves behind the boat, and you just drop the rope and ride with the waves. Now I want to be a wakesurfer! I can get a wakesufing beginner lesson from her and get my supplies from the Tahoe Marine Supply.
Would this be a sport I can last long into?
We will see.
