With the release of Leah's Peace and Chasing Norie the push is over for at least a while. At the moment I have three books in process and an idea for two more. Now I can take a breath. Or at least try.
My asthma is kicking up so it's sometimes difficult to breath. Still I'm looking to get in better shape. I've done deep water aqua exercise for years. It's 2 times a week. I must confess I'm not always faithful in going. Sometimes life gets in the way, but mostly I'm just to lazy to get my fat fanny out of bed to go. Hey, it's a 25 mile round trip and at $4 per gallon. Not really a good excuse, I know.
So... I've decided to up my exercise some. My birthday is in a week and even though it's a big one it's only a year until it is. Here is my decision: Every time I go to town (remember I live on a farm) I'll go early and hit the YMCA to do a little in the cardio room and the weight room. Not Sunday's since it isn't open.
Monday was my first day. My aqua classes are on Tuesday and Thursday. I had thought to do 10 min. on the elliptical then to the weight room. Like I said, my asthma is rearing it's ugly head so I was only able to do 5 min. The way my thighs feel it's a good thing I stopped at 5.
I was able to the few things I want in the weight room. I did have to stop for a breath while I did inclining sit ups. It wasn't the longest or strongest workout ever, but I did it. Here's to hoping I'll keep it up. I'll keep you posted. ;)
