If you've read other blogs, you may have picked up on the fact that I LOVE my water exercise classes, and I'm not fond of other exercise. I expect this will change as I lose more weight, but at just over 300 pounds, land-based exercise still does a number on my knees.
This means that I feel out-of-luck on days when there are no classes scheduled. There are only classes that I can attend on 5 days per week, and I really don't like the new Saturday morning instructor. And I usually need the sleep, so Saturday morning falls by the wayside, and 4 days per week has been common (or less). And even if I do make Saturday, I hardly ever exercise on Friday. Sometimes I'll do my own water workout on Sunday afternoon, but maybe once on Friday in the past 2 years.
Until yesterday! The AC is out at the house, so my visits to the pool this week have kept me cooler. And I decided to go and do my own workout Friday evening. It was fabulous! It was probably better than some of the classes during the week. I was really proud of myself.
I proceeded to sleep in today, but the pool is open until 5:45 today and tomorrow, so my goal is to get there and work out in the water again, both days. Lots of house chores to do today, but if I can make some progress by 4:30, I'm going to treat myself to some pool tiime. I only need 25 minutes to hit 500 fitness minutes for March. And then I want to increase that for April, so a Sunday pool visit is on the agenda as well.
I'm still up about 3 pounds from March 1st. Not please about that, but all I can control is what I do today. One meal and one bit of activity at a time.
