Julie's Journey

I am tired!!!

I have been waiting for my wound to heal before going swimming, but I fianlly figured Screw it...I'm going! I have been using the film type tape that they were using to hold on my wound vac (I kept it when the vac was returned...it irritates my skin a lot less than anything else ) I figured it would be airtight, since it is in the shower.

I dropped Kayleigh off at preschool at 12:30. It took me 10 minutes to get to the rec center. I went in, paid my $7, and asked if they had water arobics classes. Would you beleive they had one from 1:15 to 2:15?? I got dressed and went into the big pool. It is really nice. It has a zero depth pool, a couple of water slides and this circular area around the slides where the water is kind of a whirlpool (you know--like when you were a kid and would go round and round a pool, staying near the sides?? Soon the water would be pushing you along) Anyway, the water is really strong like that. I think they call it a water walking river. I went around that 3 times, and when I went to get out my legs were rubbery.

After that I went into the other pool area (the lap pool area) I swam a few laps, then the class started. It was great. It was a hour long class, when it was over and I went to get out my legs felt like I had a 20 pound weight on each ankle!!! I went into the hot tub/whirlpool for a few minutes then went and got dressed. I was able to go back to the school and pick up Kayleigh with time to spare.

I am soooo excited about the exercise I did today. I plan on going at least 2x a week. It just works out perfectly, with the classes Mon/Wed at the perfect time for me to attend.

Once I get in a bit better shape, they have a huge workout center with all state of the art equipment as well as a running track and a climbing wall. I think I will stick with swimming for now, though ;)))

Tomorrow is weigh in day,so more tomorrow...
