My inspiration for the title: Jump in the line! And it works fine with this post about working your body.
I’d been noticing pics on FB from Dave’s DIL of this beautiful pool at the gym she goes to. If you know me at all, you KNOW I LOVE the water. So the seed was planted…and on 4/14, I met Pam at the gym and got a 3 day pass.
That Sunday, I had to take Dave to the ER (vertigo was the diagnosis after a grueling 8 hours…I’m too old to stay up til 330 am!), and I felt that leaving him alone from 9 am to 8 pm was a bit much, so no gym.
He felt better and on 4/22, no more excuses, off I went. The guy who gave me the 3 day pass wasn’t there, which was a good thing, since the woman I talked to gave me a 7 day pass! I went every day (except Friday), straight from work.
Monday I did the treadmill for 1/2 hour, because I dawdled at work and got there after the class had started. Truthfully, I was petrified of going in the pool, of wearing my bathing suit in front of people I don’t know, so… *rolls eyes*
Tuesday, I did yoga.
Wednesday, aquacize with just Pam and her Mom. That helped ease me into it LOL!
Friday, I’ll be damned if I can remember what I DID do, but it wasn’t gym related LOL Dave doesn’t even remember! I think maybe we watched a movie?
Saturday, aquacize (with belts in the deep end, how fun!), then a 20 mile bike ride (two breaks) with my friends Mark & Karen, then a rousing game of miniature golf.
Sunday, a hike in Hellcat Swamp at the Parker River Wildlife Refuge.
Tuesday, yoga. Teacher complimented me on my form in one pose, but unfortunately later I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and thought…who is that man? Typically, instead of being pleased with the compliment, I chose to be bummed out at how I looked. At least I realize this and the next morning, all was good.
Last night, a 13 mile bike ride, with no break. Took me about 50 minutes. Did I mention I love biking almost as much as being in the water?
My question: If I love these things so, why did I stop doing them?
