Subs in Exercise Classes Change It Up

Saturday, March 17, 2012

For the past week, due to spring break, we had subs in all but two of my water classes. I really enjoy it when we have subs because they tend to shake things up a little. The workouts were vigorous with loads of cardiovascular components. I'm to the point of needing to include some more vigorous moves in my workouts or I don't feel like I've had a good workout. Who would have thought a year ago that I'd be at this level now? I'm proud of myself for making such great progress!

A Good Workout Today

Thursday, March 15, 2012

I had a rigorous workout today. This was the second day in a row that I worked out at this level. I slept like a baby last night. I hope that I do the same tonight. I will be sure to rest this afternoon to let my muscles recover. I sure hope that I'm not going to be sore tomorrow!

    Sounds like you are doing everything just right. I love my new walking route. Each day I am going a little further and stretching my comfort zone on how long it takes me to get back. If it keeps getting warmer I'll need to start leaving earlier before the sun is too high.

Your Actions Can Touch Others

Friday, March 09, 2012

The lady who commented on how my body shape has changed and asked how I did it last week said that I inspired her to workout more! She has started to copy what she has seen me do in the pool. Boy was I surprised! (And okay, I was very flattered too!) It just goes to show that you never know how your actions can touch others!

Adding Yoga To My Exercises

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

This morning after doing my 95 minutes of water aerobics, I had time to shower, dress and attend a new yoga class. I've done "Pilates and Stretch" but have always wanted to try yoga. I loved it! It was a great way to stretch out after my morning workout. I was surprised at how well I was able to keep up with the class. I loved the way the teacher said, "No pain and breathing are the focus of this class. If at any time a move hurts, stop and just concentrate on your breathing." After the class I felt so relaxed! Wow! I think I'll do yoga again!

    I looooove yoga! In fact, my yoga class is one of the reasons I'm on SP now. I felt like I wanted to go as far with it as I possibly could, and at my present weight I felt like I was missing out on some of the more advanced asanas. They're coming so much easier now...woohoo!

Congrats to you for jumping in and trying something new. It's wonderful that you found something you really like. Keep it up!

Here's to exploring new frontiers!

Glorious Sunshine And Cold Today

Monday, March 05, 2012

I can't believe how bright it was outside this morning! Here in Florida the sun was shining well before 7a.m. The sky was a gorgeous, clear blue. The sun was warm and the air was cold this morning but that didn't stop me from heading to the pool for a good workout. I have enjoyed every moment of the sunshine today!

    Me, too! I took a new walk this morning and I just kept on going for almost an hour before I got back. I think I might do it again this afternoon!
