A person very dear to me who shall remain nameless made me some water weights, made to my specifications! Is that tits or what? They are perfect! You just hold one in each hand while water jogging and push them up and down and it works your arms. There is air inside for more resistance. I can't wait until they get here and I can start using them.
Well it's official. It's August. Schools will be starting again soon. When I was a kid we never went back to school until after Labor Day. Now they go back in the middle of August. I wonder why? The old way seemed so logical to me. Even though summer doesn't really end on Labor Day we all think of it that way. (Reminder, no white shoes after Labor Day!)
Actually I don't wear white shoes any time. I could wear white sandals I suppose but don't. I have lots of other colors though but mostly wear gold or silver, navy or beige. And in South Florida I do wear sandals all year long.
Oh, and I forgot! My water shoes are white! With navy trim. I got them from Lands End and they are so comfortable I hardly know I'm wearing them. Originally I had some from the Walmart back when I was going to water aerobics at the club last year. They tore after a few wearings. I have worn the Lands End ones over six months now and they still look like new.
Speaking of water shoes... Here's something I never knew. I only wear them in the water, as soon as I get out I take them off and rinse them. Well I have strap marks on my feet where there is no tan. I am tanning under water! Who knew? Can you see it? And yes, my toenails are blue. Who knew?
You know looking at that photo showed me something. My ankles used to swell but not any more. What about that? I am just getting healthier and healthier. I sure hope I don't get hit by a truck now!
Oh shoot, there goes the fish oil again. It kicks in when I'm least expecting it. It's fun sometimes though. I can go about anywhere I want (in my mind) when that happens.
So, no MahJong today sadly. We have three of our six gals off somewhere else. Well one still in the hospital with her new knee and two off and about. Next week will be better. But the one with the new knee is doing fabulous I hear. I knew she would, she is very athletic and fit.
I lost $20 at poker last night but the pizza was wonderful. I blotted all the grease I possibly could with napkins and it was still delicious. And I had a big salad and diet coke. I still stayed under my goal for the day too. It does get easier after a bit, honest it does.
Have a lovely Wednesday y'all. Me too...
