Exercising in the Heat

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Had a great indoor Zumba class this morning to get my heart pumping. Good thing it was early before the studio got hot. Also walked for over an hour in the heat of the day and came home dripping! Thank goodness I drank plenty of water before and after the walk to rehydrate. Temperature is scheduled to remain in the low 90's until Friday so I'll have to get my outdoor exercise in early before it gets too steamy. It's still way better than rain or snow!

    Good for you for not letting the heat stop you! But do be careful and keep drinking that water!

My First Kayak Paddle

Sunday, June 17, 2012

As the summer cottage season approaches in a couple of weeks, I'd like to take advantage of the kayaks at the cottage as another means of exercise while up there. I bought a 2-hour intro to kayaking deal at one of our park lakes and scheduled the lesson and paddle this morning. Although a thunderstorm was in the forecast, it held off for the 2 hours and I got my paddling in! It's a totally different stroke from dragon boat paddling but pretty easy to pick up. The current on the water was virtually non-existent which made for an easy paddle. We spotted a couple of small turtles sunbathing on a log and a great blue heron flew by as well. Just a lovely way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday with nature and some great upper body exercise thrown in! I'm sure I'll feel all those new muscles used on Monday! Can't wait to get up to the cottage to reinforce what I learned today!

    Kayaking is so much fun - glad you enjoyed it. Just floating along on the water away from all your cares and worries.

Great Summery Weekend with Friends!

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Just got back from a great weekend up north with friends and their significant others. Boat rides, great meals & wine, campfires, games, long walks, shopping and lots and lots of laughter were all on the schedule! We've volunteered to host next year's gathering and can't wait!


Cruise Reunion at the Cottage with the Hubbies

Thursday, June 07, 2012

Heading up to cottage country Friday morning for a weekend with my cruising mates and their significant others. Hoping the rain and thunderstorms stay away for the three days but might be asking too much. Oh well whatever the weather I'm sure much laughter and "memories from the cruise" will be rehashed. The rain might even encourage some euchre playing. Looking forward to getting back together one last time before the fall and enjoying the great outdoors!


First Bridal Shower of the Season

Monday, June 04, 2012

We just held our first of two bridal showers this afternoon and it was a great success. Last night and this morning kept me pretty busy organizing my assigned food list but got it all done on time. Everyone showed up and we were able to buy many accessories for the patio set that the bride-to-be wasn't aware of, which was a nice surprise! We played some fun games with prizes and of course had made enough food to feed an army. A few of the younger set brought their babies so we could catch up with them as well. All in all a very enjoyable way to spend a Sunday afternoon! And we're going to do it all again in 3 weeks time! Looking forward to a nice long sleep tonight!
