Water Aerobics

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Water aerobics are the greatest!! I used to do them all the time - I was even a substitute teacher for awhile - but now I just don't have the money to indulge in classes. I recommend water aerobics for everyone.

If you are afraid of the water - you don't have to do deep water aerobics. Many classes are held in the shallow end of the pool - the water stays at chest level.

It's great exercise for people with arthritis, knee pain or other joint pain. The water makes the exercise feel effortless.

If you haven't tried it - I suggest you do! It's easy on the body & a great workout, but you don't even feel like you did anything. Yes, you will notice some muscle pain the first few days, but that goes away quickly!

Once I get a job and money starts coming back in, I intend to join a water aerobics class again - I really miss it.

    I've been thinking about it for a long, long time. Maybe it's time now! Thanks for bringing it up.

Disappointment

Saturday, November 21, 2009

Well, I didn't get the job I interviewed for last Friday. I am very sad about it, too. I know that it was a perfect job for me, but apparently it was the perfect job for someone else, too. I'm glad that I at least got the interview because interview experience is invaluable. I just wish I knew what I had said or done that knocked me out of the running.

It's really hard to bounce back after this. I know the economy is lousy...but I have never had this much trouble finding work before.

I am going to try very hard to pick myself up and dust myself off and start all over again!

    If it had been the perfect job for you, you would have gotten it.

Don't let this little bump derail you from your healthy eating and exercise program.

Self-sabotage at this time will not help you get the perfect job.

    Don't let this get you down, you hang in there and keep looking, the job for you is still out there. Good luck and keep a positive attitude.

  Oh, heck...I'm sorry, Judy. But let's get that negative talk right out of here. First of all...maybe you didn't say or do anything that knocked you out of the running. maybe it's just that the other person said or did one more thing on their list of expectations. You really can never tell. With todays economy the employer knows they have the upper hand. They have a pool of so many to chose from. My poor brother-in-law goes from one "temporary" job to another. He's got a family to take care of and can't afford to be picky. It's so frustrating. Your job will come. Hang in there. mary

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Thursday, November 19, 2009

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Happy Thanksgiving!

  Thanks for the smile this morning! As I read that it reminded me that I must have a plan before Thanksgiving to make good choices and not over indulge. I hope to keep up the weight loss not just do damage control. Happy Thanksgiving to you!! emoticon Ritarose

Spark Points

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

I am so excited! I just passed the 5,000 point mark. I am so proud of myself. I had joined SparkPeople quite a while ago, but never really got into it. This time, I love it so much. I have been talking it up to all my TOPS friends, trying to get them involved, too.

I find that SparkPeople helps me to stay focused since I visit the site every single day. I enjoy playing some of the games like trivia & taking polls, along with keeping up with my teams.

FAMILY

Monday, November 16, 2009

Yesterday a large portion of my family attended a get-together at a local restaurant, kind of a "mini-reunion". It was fantastic! Getting to see the children of my cousins and getting to actually know them is a wonderful thing. We shared stories of the past and the present, plus deciding to make plans to do this again in the future.

It really made me think. I have always been one to honor family and try to keep everyone in touch somehow. It gave me great pleasure to see that others in my family have realized how important it is, also.

    I love family gatherings. They just don't happen often enough. I take my dad back at least once a year to see his ageing remaining family members. Oh the stories you hear.
