I am going to try water aerobics. My orthopedist strongly suggested it. I got my swimsuit yesterday from Land's end. I am an online shopper. Point, Click and Ship. I can't remember the last time I was in a mall...but I digress.

I am going to try one class at the gym before buying a membership. I'll let you know how I do. The pool is 4ft. deep so I guess that is shallow water aerobics. This is a whole new realm for me. I have been a "dry lander" exerciser up til now. I still try to do ten minutes of walking at lunchtime if the weather is good and the work pile isn't to high.

I wish I go apply the same work ethic to taking care of myself as I do in my job and taking care of other people.

Take care,

Pam

Something to keep in mind with water aerobics. 20 minutes of activity is the equivalent of an hour on land. So start small!. :D Also if you are in a heated pool you shouldn't be working as hard as in a non-heated pool. Takes less to get your heart rate up.

Good luck!

My rheumatologist suggested I get back in to water aerobics. I was doing it 3x wk. up until last year. RA has really been kicking my butt. I know that as I lose weight, it will get better. I had a total left knee replacement in 2006, and now, my right knee needs done. OS wants me to take as much weight off as I possibly can before we do this. It will be much better for me and him. I'm on methotrexate ( 8 tabs once a week ), Enbrel, and will be starting Remicade IV in July. The only thing that reall takes the edge off is Prednisone 60mg every day. I stopped taking those, They made me feel extremely weird. Roid rage!! Not good. I work full time as a nurse and most days RA kicks my butt. But, so far, I've been able to fight through it. I did start water aerobics back again, but, it's not like before.
