I hope it works well for him, LECATES. I have a guy in my class who is a huge fan. He is a retired steelworker who has had many, many injuries and surgeries. He is so happy to be able to move his body.

My dh is going for his first PT appointment in the pool---he has 2 scheduled, then he will be coming with me to the class---he can either do that routine from PT or do the class activities---but it will be cheaper for us that way. Hoping he finds that the water makes his knee feel a lot better.

Woohoo for a great workout, TYKIRNONNIE! I made my class work hard last night--we were laughing a lot, too. I love those nights.

If you are 62 or older then when you get to the park gate you ask them about it and they get it done. It only takes a few minutes. It cost us $10 and has saved us about 5 times that now. We are in Winslow, AZ, for the night-in a room and not on the corner as the song goes for those old enough to remember it. Larry is planning on taking a picture of me on a corner before we leave though.

Kerry, how did you get that pass? Glad you are having a good time. My mom took the train up to the Grand Canyon, too----she really enjoyed traveling by train.
Woohoo on the pools being reopened---I am sure the others are glad about it, too.
Had a super busy day yesterday---today has been low key as my student is not here---I am going in to get his work in classes but then I can leave---been nice as he was rather difficult yesterday---hopefully it will improve as his mom was told last night that Doug is getting more whiny---either that or it will be worse as she probably spoiled him today and I will not do that.
Water aerobics for me tonight.

Hooray, the pool has re-opened, so I can teach my kid swim classes and adult water aerobics tonight!

Our furnace has had its overdue maintenance--no issues beyond its age. Our taxes are ready for T to pick them up!

We're getting ready for another office move on Friday, but hopefully this will be to our final location. Since the move will begin at 3pm, I was able to make a car service appointment.

Woohoo, it feels good to get stuff done!

I got to swim laps in the "big pool" last night, but the small pool had a mechanical problem so no water aerobics class for me last night.

Instead, I got to the grocery store to restock on salad ingredients for my lunches, and then had some delicious lamb chops for dinner.

I agree, it was a good reason to miss. My baby is 34! My grandkids are 12 & 15!!
We enjoyed visiting the Grand Canyon today and enjoyed riding the train to and from rather than driving ourselves. I got plenty of walking in especially a fast walk to the car and back to the train station with our senior park pass which saved us about $15 on the ride.

I missed WA last night -- but I had a very good reason! My grandson is visiting for Spring Break and yesterday was his birthday. I'll be back in the pool tomorrow, though. :-D Have a great day, all.

Kerry, I am soooo jealous---I have always wanted to see that. Enjoy.
The machine in our pool room to control humidity is so loud it is hard to hear a lot of things---they got a new one and it is even louder than the old one and the room is never as warm as it used to be---I really don't thing it works right at all.
Hoping to get to the pool tonight---feeling better but will have to take it easy---I had some issues yesterday while singing with my breathing so I know to be careful.

Sometimes the acoustics make it impossible to hear and there's not much you can do about it when the instructor has a softer voice. Hopefully she does a good job of demoing. I know the one gym location is awful because the hot tub is off in one corner-actually walls on 3 sides so when the jets are turned on it echoes and that is the only sound you can hear. One instructor puts a note up saying they can't use the jets during class and the last time I was in some gal was at the desk complaining about not being able to use the hot tub and I told her why. She and the employee just didn't care. We keep telling them you can still soak in the hot water just without the jets or wait a few minutes for class to finish. Oh well. We are on the way to the Grand Canyon today-the big destination of this trip so I better get off the computer.

Definitely need to hear the instructor.
Ended up not going Wed. to the pool---started running a fever about 5 and had the chills so ended up curled up on the couch under lots of blankets and stayed home yesterday---came into work today but should have stayed home---no ummph!

If you have that sub again, let her know you need her to be louder, clearer. As an instructor, sometimes I worry about being too loud. It can be hard to judge the accoustics.

We had a good class last night. We had an instructor subbing for our regular instructor and she definitely had a different style. Apparently she usually teaches kickboxing and, boy, could you tell! She was a little difficult to follow since she had a soft voice and she wasn't clear about her starts for the Tabata portions but overall a positive experience!

How neat that the instructor is that close and you can go for more training.
Kerry, that sculpture library and garden sounds like a very pleasant way to spend a day---would be nice if a lot more areas offered that kind of thing----as long as they look like something real and not the abstract junk you sometimes see---oops, the art critic in me coming out---LOL
Water and humidity helped Monday night so hoping it helps tonight---not sure if cold or allergy--just know I am feeling pretty miserable in the nose area.
Going to being my computer to school tomorrow to be repaired and hoping one of my sons will come over and hook it back up for me when I take it home.

It is cold and very, very windy here today. My neighborhood is fine, but trees are getting knocked down in some areas.

I had my water class do "leprechaun" jogs and kicks last night, just for fun.

I am going to get to attend water instructor training classes in June with my favorite instructor. He lives in Florida and rarely teaches up north. The training is less than an hour drive, so I am very excited.

I don't think I'll be doing anything outside today. We did go to Taco John's to try their breakfast but then back home and out of the very chilly wind. Highs yesterday were upper 70's with sunshine and today is 40's with clouds and wind.

Made it to Water Aerobics Saturday and yesterday! Woohoo! I also walk at least half an hour most days at work and I've been actually doing it EVERY DAY for the last week or so. It's often hard to get started but so worth it once I'm done.

I was SUCH a good girl yesterday - 30 minutes of walking, 60 minutes of water aerobics, stayed under 750 calories for the day (I had a gastric sleeve four months ago so this is temporarily desirable - don't want to stretch my sleeve) and got more than 60g of protein.

Light day today, though, with only a 45 minute walk and then deep tissue neuromuscular massage tonight.

Happy St. Paddy's all!

While the guys were out doing a delivery my SIL and I went out walking-first the library area where there are a lot of sculptures around the pond and then inside the library for some more. They have one fantastic and huge library here in Loveland! Then we drove to another area of town and spent about an hour walking a sculpture park. They have several dozen sculptures as well as a gazebo. The weather was great-although the sun did get a little hot. We enjoyed it-wish we had something like that at home. emoticon

Kerry, glad to hear from you---saw your travels on the Friend Feed---sounds like you are having a good time.
Joann---I need a cheerleader!
Having computer issues at home so will only pop on when at school until I bring it here to get them to fix it---so nice having career classes to do those things for me. Lots of plants are starting to bloom out in the school greenhouses---brightens the day to see the blooms. I think I have a cold coming on---have sore throat this morning and still not feeling great, plus sneezing more than usual, too.

Good evening from Loveland, Colorado. Today was a day of sitting in the car as we drove from the eastern edge of Nebraska to north central Colorado. We'll stay here with Larry's brother and sister in law for a couple days before heading south.

LECATES, I will be your virtual cheerleader! emoticon emoticon

Seriously, something that helped get me moving every day is putting stickers on a calendar for every day I moved for more than X minutes.

That way, I could just look back at the week and see how I did. It made me be more honest with myself. Did I intend to exercise, but instead let something "come up" or make excuses to prevent my exercise from happening or did I actually DO it?

emoticon Evon! I know I missed several times in the pool over the last few months due to the weather and road conditions, and I really missed it---glad you are realizing how important it is. I know I feel better when I go, too.
Joann---wish you were here to lead me---LOL
Glad it is Friday---first week in a long time that I have worked 5 days so it has been long.
Lots of plants came in yesterday afternoon so the students will be busy planting today---our 2 greenhouses are getting really full and the teacher is beginning to worry about where all the new plants will be going that are coming next week. It sure is looking like Spring in our greenhouses.

I agree about making ourselves go so we feel better. Evon. I learned that lesson for myself, and now I am helping reinforce that with my own water aerobics students. I tell them I don't care if they just come and float on a noodle, but they need to get in the water. The less they feel like it, the more important it might be.

Good morning all, nice to meet you.

My name is Evon and I've been doing water aerobics sporadically for the last two months. I got back to a class last night and afterwards (as always) I was thinking . . . "Why have I not been here for two weeks?" Funny how it seems like we have good excuses for not going but once we make ourselves we feel so much better, lol.

Happy Thursday!

Got a nice compliment from one of my new students. She felt she got a much better workout than when she attended water classes with other instructors in the past. She was surprised, but really enjoyed it!

The snows are beginning to recede here. I am so excited to see the tops of shrubs!

Companies are not hiring full time employees because they cannot afford to pay out health benefits---all this is due to Obama Care---this has screwed up a lot of people---a few good things have come from this but overall, it is just created an awful mess for the ones it was supposed to help. And it is not like it used to be where people who employed others actually cared about their employees---that is so rare anymore.
Had a lovely night out with the Red Hat ladies---but my legs gave me fits last night---might have been the seats we were sitting in at the restaurant. Hope the pool helps me tonight--they even hurt right now and that is unusual.

Congrats on that test! Glad to be of service.

Busy day today and tomorrow. For a woman looking for a full-time job but being forced to take part-time because I am not currently working full-time. I guess you have to do part-time temp until you end up working for someone that really wants a full-time perm work, so they shop the work force for cheap labor first. I ended up working part-time temp because I couldn't find a full-time perm last time I looked hard. I tell you, the employers have figured out how to discriminate no matter what. The crimes they pull and get away with. My last two jobs, I was so harassed, but I couldn't do anything about it. Not sure I woul dhave cuz it was easier to just get away from them, but now I've learned some things and it really hacks me off.

Oh well, I refuse to believe they are all dishonest and mean, so I'm going to keep looking. My hubby shouldn't be the only one bringing home the bacon for us especially when there is nothing wrong with me. Besides, I get a little bored.

Have a great day, all of you. Sorry for venting, but I was a little hacked. Okay, now.

Thanks for the lucky green, FLORIDAGHOST! I think the extra good luck worked! I just completed my Arthritis Foundation Aqua Instructor renewal online and got 49 out of 50 answers correct!

Kerry, your trip sounds wonderful---hope you can find places with pools to get some exercise in.
The Flower show was lovely--I was so glad i got to go---made a Fascinator to wear and wore it in the show---got lots of compliments on it--also made a terrarium---they were my splurges for myself this year. My memory foam shoes were very comfortable---feet did not hurt but legs were tired by the end of the 5+ hours on concrete walking around at a slow pace. But I did get up this morning and walked at the mall for almost an hour and a half. Came home and dh and I went and ran an errand at Lowe's. Now I think I will run get bread and milk and maybe go to Big Lots to see what they have.

I got my hour of aqua this morning after picking up GS dropping him and his 3 bags off at the high school and my Friday coffee group. Larry came along for all but the aqua. lol Right now we are sitting at home watching a movie, The Happening. Then I need to work on cleaning things up so we can drop a bunch of stuff off for donation. I'm also making a list of things we HAVE to pack for this trip.

I agree about those pools that are deep in the middle. I attended an aqua instructor training in one. There wasn't much room in the deep area to do much of anything!

Have a great trip, KERRYG155!

Jo-Ann, glad they enjoyed your classes--a great workout that does not stress the joints is why I love my class---I can do stuff in the water that I could never do on land.
Kerry, that sounds like a very nice trip. Can't the pastor find someone else to count the money or he join in and help with this task? With your dh being retired, I would just tell him that you will do it when home but want to be able to travel when you feel like it. Why would someone have to come all the way to Baltimore to get their taxes done? strange!
Haven't heard of a cancellation of my trip---although school is closed today---so need to slip on clothes shortly and go shovel a path to my car and get it cleaned off---thankfully I live close to the pick up place but will take longer to get there as I won't take the side streets as I figure they won't have been plowed this morning. So looking forward to getting a taste of Spring at the Philadelphia Flower Show. Have a good day!

At our old gym location we used to have runners put the ankle weights on and run in the pool which really helps them with speed on land. These new pools being deeper in the middle make that hard unless you're 6' tall, I guess. I know I can go jogging along and suddenly there's no ground under me.

We are heading to the Grand Canyon, via, Chattanooga, TN, Paducah, KY, St. Louis, MO, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona. Then back to Florida. I wanted to start the trip the last week of March but because of the things I do at church and there are no other volunteers we had to reschedule. 3 of us count the offering money on Sunday afternoon and get it to the bank-it can't be fewer than 2 and preferably 3 so we have managed to schedule hip replacements and vacations around each other but this time one of the other counters said he has to go to Baltimore to get his taxes done on the 14th of April so I need to be here. This will probably be the last time I even bother trying to make him happy and will try to get someone else to learn the job! We all do enjoy spending the time together visiting while we get it done but with Larry retired we want to be able to just get up and go when we want to.

I've had two new people in my water aerobics classes this week and both were surprised and delighted with getting a good workout in the water! This makes me so happy! During lap swim yesterday, I also introduced an injured runner to the concept of aqua jogging. I promised to give her a quick lesson the next time she is in the pool. She was very excited about the idea.

What a bummer about that roof---it does make it rough and understandable that people go elsewhere when they close. I think most Ys are too expensive compared to other gyms and when people realize it, they just don't come back.
Kerry, where are you headed? I would think just waiting a week might help--our temps for next week are in the 50's but today we are going to get a very nasty mixture so schools are all closed even though it has not started yet---Salt for the roads is in short supply plus it is raining first so the roads will be super slick when the wintry mix starts and no ice on the road to counteract---then snow will go on top---not a good combo at all.
I did make it to the pool last night---got home right at 6---rushed to get ready---and left my robe and flip flops at home---duh---but did get in a good workout---luckily it was not cold yesterday so I survived ---but my knee did give me fits last night ---just achy. I could have gone back to bed this morning but figured I was too awake---I can always go take a nap this afternoon.

Is it an old building or just bad workmanship? That would be totally frustrating.

I think the repair might require people on sky-jack scaffolds over the pools, but I hope I am wrong. Besides last year's pool closure, there have been a lot of other renovation changes, delays, and issues that have had quite a few members upset or leaving. I hope all this hubbub is worth it, in the long run!

I would hope they could do roof repairs without closing. Our old gym had to do that several times. Any time you close down for any period of time your clientele is going to go elsewhere.

I heard a rumor that my Y might close again this coming summer. (I have a feeling it is to redo the pool ceilings that got installed last summer and leaking due to the extreme weather we had.) I can't vent anywhere else about it, but sheesh! I lost several class "regulars" because of the last closure.

I had a great turnout for class last night, compared to a lot of the slow nights earlier this winter. People were happy to be in the water and moving!
