Enjoying The 8a.m. Water Aerobics Class

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

Although it is sometimes tough to get up (from that nice warm bed) in the morning to exercise, I'm enjoying the new 8a.m. water aerobics class. The class is fairly small, around 8 - 10 people. We have lots of room to move around in the water and can hear the teacher very well. She gives us a more vigorous workout too! I enjoy the quiet of an early morning workout without the noise that a class of 40 people generates. So even though I sometimes don't feel like getting up that early, I've been pushing myself. Once at the class I'm always glad that I made it!

My Spark friend RUTHIEBEAR wrote a blog about this great uplifting video. It made me smile, so I'd like to pass it along to everyone. If you have the time, it is worth a listen!

I Did It! I'm over 100,000 Fitness Minutes!

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

I'm so excited! I have not only hit the 100,000 Fitness Minutes goal that I set, I am currently 156 minutes over my goal. When I joined Spark People in 2008 my goal was to log 100,000 fitness minutes. Now I have 100,156 and will set my next goal at 200,000 fitness minutes. I can do this and be successful!

For The First Time Since 1993....

Friday, March 30, 2012

Today, for the first time since 1993, I was able to swim a couple of lengths in the pool. I never dreamed that I would have the range of motion with my neck to be able to do this again. I know that I must be very careful when putting my face into the water and turning it sideways to breathe but that I was able to do it at all is a miracle. The reason I tried swimming today is that I have to swim two lengths of the pool in order to become a water aerobics sub (after I take the classroom training). I was assured that I can do any swimming stroke that I choose. I also did some floating/paddling on my back which was very relaxing. I did find that I got winded quickly when I put my face in the water so I will have to build up some stamina with that type of swimming. I swam for about 30 minutes and I have to say that I was thrilled to be able to do it!

Invitation To Be A Water Aerobics Sub

Thursday, March 29, 2012

At the end of our deep water class, the instructor came up to me and asked me if I would be interested in becoming a water aerobics sub. (I've already taught the class 3 times when she had to be out) It involves some training and a fee of $75 for the training but it sounds like fun. The training class will begin sometime in May. As long as it isn't at the end of the month, I'll be okay (taking FIL's ashes to New York for burial in late May). I got a little more information about what is going to be involved and now I'm looking forward to the challenge. Hubby even agrees that it might be good for me!
