I need an indoor pool.....
I LOVE WATER AEROBICS!! There, I said it. I really do. Tonight I joined the nephew at the city pool. IN PUBLIC. IN SHORTS. Ya'll just do not know how much I had to overcome to do that. It took some MAJOR courage. Seriously. But, I am SO glad I did. It is so much fun! And, I have not hurt like this in a long time. But, it is a good hurt. :-)
I get up and exercise at least 5 mornings a week. For at least 45 minutes. I have been known to also do a shorter session at night as well. But, this really worked EVERYTHING. :-) I can't believe how great I feel.
When I first signed him up the instructor tried to get me to join too. I have known her for years. She is a wonderful woman, and was my aerobics instructor for two years in college. But, all I could picture was a bunch of skinny college girls in bikinis. NO WAY was I going in there in shorts.
I was wrong. There were women of all shapes and sizes. One lady, God bless her, was about my size. I said to myself, "If she can do it, I can do it!" And I let the instructor know that next time, I would be joining them.
Once I got the balance down, to where I wasn't trying to "float away" I did great!! :-) I would love to be able to do it at least 2-3 times a week. But, unfortunately the city pool closes on August 12th. So, my love of water aerobics is short lived. But, next year I will be skinnier, and ya'll, I will be out there the FIRST DAY! :-)
If you have never done water aerobics you really should try it. It will be the best workout you every had. You really don't feel like you're doing a lot, because you're underwater so it is so much easier on your joints. But, when you get out OH MY! You definitely feel it. :-)
I sure wish there was a YWCA or something around here. :-) LOL.. :-)
