Success on eating breakfast at home
Friday, January 23, 2015
Well, I ate breakfast at home and I had the food handy. It worked, yeah!!!!!
Today, I also had success for swimming laps. After I went to the noon water aerobics, I got a kickboard and some leg floats and put them near the side of the pool, so I didn't have to leave the pool to get them. It would have been too easy to walk on out the door.
It's crowded in the lap lanes right after class, so I guessed correctly that I would be sharing. It's never been a comfortable time for me because I'm all over the lane. So, sometimes to make sure the other person has room, I hug the ropes, which is not fun either. Today I stayed for six lengths of the pool and for 20 minutes. I just used the kick board and focused on just breathing, rotating my head and keeping it down. By practicing it here and only one skill, I could focus better. The water aerobics teacher saw me afterwards and said that I was better focused today. Nice, way to go. I can build on the rotating head and breathing.
Yesterday, during water aerobics class, which was at one end of the pool, I stayed at the other end and swam at first my old way and then slowly went into the skills that I'm trying to improve on. I love the feel of the deep water without any ropes. At first there were two other people, so there were only three in the deep end. The other two soon left and I had the entire half pool to myself. It is such a good feeling.
For my Tai Chi class, this week on Tuesday, I stayed the entire class and on the second class of the week I left 15 minutes early. One of the ladies who is really good at Tai chi says she gets so energized after being in class. I don't. I am interested but not energized.
