I have to say, I love, love, love the pool! Chlorine is my perfume! I love the smell of it! I love how easily I can move in the water and I love how tired I feel after a good aqua workout!
I went to the Y to a water aerobics class today. I got in the pool early so I was able to get a full 60 minute workout in addition to the stretching and balance segment at the end. It felt glorious! I am a true water baby! I wish I had an indoor pool at home! The thought of romping in the pool while snow falls (as if) around me, or the cold temps fog up the glass, well it makes me feel all tickley inside! But, can't afford all that, so to the Y I go! I am fortunate enough to have a pool in my backyard and in summer, that is where you will find me! I love it! I really do!
So, today I did my own little workout before class started, then worked out with the class. I came out of the pool feeling shakey and sweaty. Signs of a low blood sugar! And, yes it was low! So, it makes me wonder because that happens at home sometimes too. I have to be very careful to eat right and watch my blood sugar when in the pool! I work out at home. I work out at Curves. I belly dance. I walk. But, nothing wears me out and burns up blood glucose like the water! I always thought it was the combo of exercise and sun in summer, but I think it is water. I feel so sleepy right now and had the low blood sugar and all I've really done is the water aerobics so far.
I wonder what burns me up so much? I am pleasantly sleepy. I feel good. But, I am also HUNGRY! Water aerobics doesn't seem to burn as many calories as other stuff, but nothing tires me as much or makes me as hungry!
When I hit the lottery I'm building an inground, indoor/outdoor pool! I'll be thin and healthy! Or, I'll be dead! SEriously, it zaps my blood sugar! If it does kill me, well I will die with a smile on my face!
It's been a great weekend! I ended up at Curves for the first time all week on Saturday and went to the pool today. I've walked all weekend to get my mileage in and have a yoga session planned for this evening. Hopefully Sassy will join me. Life is good!!
