This week I’m actually attempting two conflicting challenges: to eat only raw (unprocessed, uncooked) food, and to learn how to surf.

The two challenges conflict, to me, because learning a new diet puts me in a fragile state, and surfing (from my little experience) requires my fittest, strongest, best, most energetic self.

Why attempt them both at once, when I don’t really need to? Because I want to be less in control and more outside my comfort zone, and occasionally this requires a big push.
