The Whistler's Dream

Everybody needs a dream...
Mine is to go to Oklahoma and play whistles for The Pioneer Woman. (Having been invited, not in a "creepy stalker" kind of way, for the record.) Heck, I'd play in a pup tent in the backyard for the joy of the cows and critters. What can I say? I'm a fan.

What a GREAT way to start the day!

Vicki and I are taking a 5 week water aerobics class through GR Parks & Recreation. Today was the first one, but won't be the last! What an amazing time!

Now, doctors have been telling me all along that I should go to some sort of a water therapy class, because it's the best for dealing with arthritis, and is non-weight bearing stuff that I can do... I had no idea it would be this much fun, tho! It was amazing to move like that without having to sit down after 30 seconds, gasping for air. The water made SUCH a difference. This 5 week class won't be the end of it - we'll look around for another place to get hooked up with classes, because we both love it!

The hour flew by, and the only negative was getting out of the pool at the end, and remembering just how heavy I feel on land. :-)

Oh, and for those of you who know what a total night person I am - I absolutely LOVED the class, even though it's at 8:30AM! :-) I'd gladly get up early to go do that! So, we'll see what kind of an impact that has on the rest of my day - I already feel a bit more alert, but we'll see if that wears off as the day goes on.

Our exercise balls get here Thursday. So, between water aerobics on Tuesday and Thursday, and working with weights and the ball the other days, we should start to see a BIG change in how the weight loss is going. Yee Haw! God is good all the time, and ALL the time, God is good!!!
