The blueberry swims!

Yes, I'm the blueberry. I've oftened referred to myself as looking like a blueberry on a stick when I wear my navy bathing suit lol. Well, I finally got my butt to the pool today and am sooooo glad I did. I feel great! I'll be sore tomorrow, but that's good, too.

I forgot about the aqua aerobics class tonight and showed up right before it started so I went ahead and took part. I was planning to do this class at some point as I've done them before, so I'll probably do this every Wednesday. I swam for a few laps after, then got in the lovely jacuzzi. It's in the locker room, and if nobody's in there I like to just float around in it. I'm sure it looks strange, but it's so relaxing that I don't mind.

When I signed up at this place, I was told they had everything. Well, I believe them now! I took a bunch of stuff with me when I went thinking that some of the stuff they told me was there probably wasn't all the time if people walked off with it. Not very trusting, am I? Well, I find that I really don't need to bring anything but my suit, goggles and cap and any clothes I may want to change into that are different from what I wore there. They have body wash, shampoo and shaving cream (!) in the showers, lotion, hair spray and spray deoderant in the changing area, and hair dryers (some with attachments) and curling irons. They also have a stash of feminine hygiene stuff and razors you can take and toss after you're done. Of course, there's also a towel service. I doubt I'd use their spray deoderant as I don't know the brand and that's something I don't like messing with, but the place is great! It's right up there with the place I went to a few years ago before I was laid off, and it's about a 10-minute walk from work so when I get there I'm a little warmed-up.

They also have a masters swimming class. I'm going to talk to the coach about what he thinks about he joining in the fall. It's $30 a month and they practice from 6:30 - 8:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. That would help motivate me to lose more weight, plus the workouts would help me to lose it. I always lost weight pretty quickly when I was doing competitive swimming workouts in high school, although I doubt these will be as tough and my body isn't going to lose it as quickly.

All in all, it was a good evening :)
