I have just got home from aqua aerobics (for the first time) and I have to make the following observations/comments because I think you lovely, like-minded people, will probably snigger along to them like I did.
1- I was the youngest person there by at least… 20 years:
2- Nobody else sings along to the music… apart from me:
3 – I am way too small to be that far towards the deep end of the pool. It seems that you need to actually be able to put your feet on the floor without drowning. This became extremely apparent when we had to hold a floating device under the water.
4 – Changing into jeans afterwards isn’t a good idea. No matter how much you dry yourself, you won’t be able to put them on without feeling like the exercise has actually made you gain weight rather than lose it!
5 – (side note related to jeans and not aqua) -putting your foot through the knee hole in said jeans is the most annoying thing ever!!)
6 – and lastly, pulling out your other half’s (worn) boxers from the side pocket of your rucksack is not a good look.
Other than that, I survived! I enjoyed it actually. I was determined to keep my hair dry which was tied to the top of my head, but no such luck and I certainly wasn’t at my most sexy when I left with wet hair and mascara down my face but…I am feeling good! 😊
I don’t know if that’s the endorphins, or the fact that I feel pleased with myself that I finally took the plunge (pun intended!) and joined the local gym, went there for a tour and attended a class, all on my tod.
I know they are all very normal things for a grown woman to do, but for me, it’s an achievement.
I’ll post tomorrow about today’s therapy session and also about something someone said to me today that’s playing on my mind.
Night everyone! X
