Little Surprises

Two postings in one day. I'm on a role.

I've been taking my meds for my ankle and knees for a week now and WHOOWEE do I feel better. My ankle is almost pain free and my knees are no longer aching. Something has really possessed me to not put off the gym. I have continued going, despite the pain. But now that the meds are working, I'm feeling good.

If you remember, one thing my doctor told me to do at the gym was water aerobics. And if you'll also remember, I mocked it quite openly. Well, folks, I'm eating my words. I LOVE IT! And all the geriatrics that are in my class! Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I'm going to Aqua Fit at the gym. (Tuesdays and Thursdays are for the Eliptical machine...not a big fan of that yet...) Sure I'm usually the youngest person there by about 20 years, but occassionaly a new, semi-wrinkle free person will join me. I guess it's not too surprising but the younger crowd doesn't strike up conversations with anyone. It's the older folks that are super chatty and fun!

I treated myself to a new swimsuit last Friday (although I learned today that the super cute halter top tankini probably isn't the best suit to wear for high intensity bobbing up and down...ehem....). I am also the proud new owner of AQUA SOCKS. Oh, yes, you read that correctly. They're hot pink and black. I now see why Edith, Erma, Glenda, and Matilda all have a pair. Those shoes are saving the bottoms of my feet!

So there you have it. I'm now a proud member of Aqua Fit. Here's to getting skinny and finally finding another exercise that I love. (Yoga, I still heart you the most.)


  1. Awesome! I wish I could join you. As I mentioned before, I have two friends at work who just love water aerobics. They don't have it at my YMCA because they don't have a pool. Darn!

  2. Erin and I did water aerobics for awhile in college. At least I think that's who did it with me. :) Anyway, I loved it and thought I would love to do it again. At least I might be the youngest gal in the class. And you're right, the ladies would be really friendly.

  3. I just happened upon your blog. Funny becaue I was considering a water aerobics class. I was afraid I would be the youngest, and I'm 40! lol
    If you can do it at 28, I guess I can. I start tomorrow.

  4. Oh friends, it's the best! And such a great workout, which has surprised me. Just got back from another class. Met a new friend in class with a kiddo the same age as Gabriel. Hoorah for new friendships! :)
