Back flips

Thursday, February 09, 2012      8 comments

DH & I gave up dinner with some very good friends to stick with our swim date tonight. Warm pool for me, grown ups pool for him. This time we spent 1 3/4 hours, it was awesome! I started off tired and grumpy, but just got on with it, jogging in... Read more

Still feeling a little weary, after a busy couple of days. Looking forward to getting back to work for a bit of a break. Zumba today and I am feeling a little challenged since I stepped up the exercise program. Six days a week seems lke quite a ... Read more

Walk in the country

Saturday, January 28, 2012      8 comments

Yesterday we visited friends who are building a new home in the country. It was fun to get out for a drive. The paddocks are full of seeding grass which looks lovely but made me wheeze when we walked to the swimming hole. The neighbour's dogs ac... Read more

Flip turns?

Tuesday, January 24, 2012      3 comments

I've been looking at flip turns on YouTube. Here in NZ we used to get basic swimming lessons at school. I've never been taught beyond that and I don't think my swimming style is so great. But it seems like a lot of trouble to go to stroke school... Read more

Nek minnit, I was fit!

Monday, January 16, 2012      3 comments

It can be a hard slog staying with the exercise program, so I think it is worthwhile capturing just how great it can be too. I have recently noticed such a big improvement in my fitness, not that I find my workout easy, but suddenly I am wanting... Read more

Saturday not slacker day

Friday, January 13, 2012      4 comments

Gorgeous day today. Went to the 8am Zumba toning class I have just started, phew! Some hardcore folk stay for the fitness class that follows, which inspired me to take my togs along and fit in an aqua jogging session. So pleasantly cooling afte... Read more

Today is my last summer holiday day. The weather is warm and there was a little sprinkling of rain just before, so I have been busy in the garden. In fact I was walking up the steps after Zumba and stopped to do a little weeding. Nek minit (see ... Read more

It's all in the spin

Saturday, December 10, 2011      4 comments

The last two days I have won 20 & 25 log in points and I've really enjoyed a short break from my SP 'work', which is reading articles, blog posts etc to get to the bonus spin. I've been doing that pretty consistently, actually every day for mont... Read more

Return of the gym bunny

Thursday, December 01, 2011      6 comments

Today is the first day of summer and it has been warm and sunny with a mild breeze. I am enjoying the garden at the moment, before it all dries up. It's a big week and I'll be glad when tomorrow is over. We are kind of winding down at work for o... Read more

Suggestions for exercises for strength & flexibility?

Saturday, November 26, 2011      2 comments

Ooooh my hips are feeling something I did yesterday. But I am otherwise feeling extremely good this morning. I am headed for the garden soon but wanted to post, for my future edification, about the improvement in my comfort and freedom of movem... Read more

Just got in from a swim followed by Zumba. Felt I had been dragging the chain a bit this week and wanted to make up for my slackness. Now feel nicely tired, and ready for the rest of the day. How good am I, after a dinner party last night!?... Read more

Meditation on the occasion of my new goggles

Tuesday, November 22, 2011      3 comments

I have been using a very warm pool at the complex down the road from our place: it is so warm it is like swimming in the bath. Using this pool has meant that I can never tell myself I don't feel like a swim because it will be too cold, it is nev... Read more

Weigh day again

Saturday, November 19, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday was a lovely day, ideal for gardening but I spent it very quietly after a big night out on Friday night. We got home after two, which is quite a stretch for us these days. It was a fun night, and I don't regret it, but my gardening pla... Read more

Tracking food & ideas for menus

Wednesday, November 16, 2011      3 comments

Starting to make use of the SP nutrition tracker a bit more than before. I've been tracking lots of days, but not really planning my meals as I should. I figure if I get a little routine goinging it will make it easier to fit in more stuff in t... Read more
