I went swimming today for the first time in 4 years and I'll tell you I was nervous. I had to pay for a year parking pass, a year membership to the pool, and a year locker. AND they changed the building around to make it more accessible to people like me.
My dear husband came with me to take out the rollator and the coaches helped me find my way through the new pass system and corridors. When I got there I dawned my flippers and goggles and I was worried that I would be too tired. I took it easy, and happily did Olympic length laps for half an hour!!!! I do free style and alternated every two laps with a float board.
I wore my new Flex fitbit for all of you who are curious, as I had contacted the company and they assured me that it was no problem to take it swimming. It went through the pool AND the shower afterwards and then I anxiously pulled it out of its compartment. I needed to take a Q-tip to remove the water, but the fitbit was unharmed. I recharged it and synched it to my fitness and - voila! It works, no problem. The data transfer was there.
This thing is awesome. And now I have to start doing knee exercises because they called me yesterday about the knee replacement schedule (3-4 months). Life is sooooo good!!!
Now I am famished and having my lunch. Cucumbers with 0% Greek yogurt w s&p and cumin and lime. Mmmmmmm.....
P.S. AND I lost another pound this morning!!!
