Sweat

Yes, sweat.  That is what I did.  For one hour.  For the first time in a very long time.  I put on my workout clothes, and filled a gigantic cup of ice water, and went with my daughter to Jazzercise.
I have been going to Jazzercise for over 20 years, off and on.  But I have not been for about 3 years now.  Eri called me yesterday to let me know about a special they were having where you pay for one month, and get two.  Plus, the afternoon instructor Kris, who I love, is recovering from a surgery and can only do low impact.  So with my bad knee, I thought I would give it a try and just keep it to low impact.  I dug out my sports bras, and shook out my yoga pants, and pulled on a nice tight knee brace, and off we went.   It was so fun!  Kris gave me such a warm welcome, and I loved movin' and groovin' to the music again.  I sure hope my knee holds out, and even strengthens up as an added bonus.  And just maybe.....the weight will come off faster now.  Today I am sore, but not terribly.   Tomorrow we leave for our weekender cruise where I will try not to over indulge.  The weather is not supposed to be good, but we are still going to have a lot of  fun.  My son is going to be here to hold down the farm for us.   I hope when we return I still have 6 healthy hens, a dog, a cat and a growing garden!!!!
See you in a few days......
Bon Voyage!

I didn't realize that jazzercise was still around. I used to love to do those workouts! Have fun on your cruise!

Have a good time!!!
My aerobics instructor always tells me to do more yoga when I complain about my knee acting up (I got a little crazy in some bad shoes dancing at a wedding a few years ago and it's been temperamental every since).

I used to go to jazzercize several years ago before I injured both my feet and had to stop. I am glad you are going again. I wish I could.... well.... maybe in time.

Have a great cruise. We love cruising. I've got a group going through Panama canal in Sept. on Celebrity leaving from San Diego. Why don't you join us? I would love to have you be apart of our group.... it is a good deal. I've got to be healed enough to lead my group by then. John and I are certified cruise directors.

Take picture to share with us. Have a great time. Hugs, Lura
