Okay, I know the plan was not to neglect this blog and all, but this has been a busy month for lots of reasons. One reason was that my niece was visiting from Japan, and we wanted to spend as much time as possible with her. This was a priority. On top of that, I've been trying to help get things together for my new job at The Living Christmas Company. I know I mentioned that a few times. I've never actually worked out of my house before so it's an adjustment.
Now for the good news. I went to the gym this past Tuesday!! I'm so proud of myself! After (I'm embarrassed to say) two years, I went in and got set up with their new system. I'm a member at 24-Hour Fitness and they just switched locations across the parking lot to a bigger and better facility which includes (drum roll please) a POOL!! Yay! I love swimming. I am pathetically out of shape of course, but I know it's something I can get into. So yesterday, I went over and took the plunge. After about 4 laps I thought "okay, that's enough for today!", so I stopped. Just kidding. Well, actually I did think that, but I pushed myself for 16 more laps: 20 in all. I went back on Wednesday but they were having a water aerobics class, and I never made it back. (Sad face.) Thursday I did another 20 laps, and today I slipped in before the aerobics class for another 20!  After a while I'm sure it will become routine No, really this time. Hey, you have to give me credit for trying, right? Three days so far this week! I totally rock, if I do say so myself, haha. See you at the pool!
Now if these guys were on the other side of the pool...
