I was asked if my pool was working for me.  My answer has to be yes.  I'm not sure I can say that I get this great aerobic workout.  I do every once in a while find a muscle that hasn't been used for awhile.  I not know if I can tell any different with my knee.  But this I can tell you, I'm feeling better.  Water is such a stress reliever for me.  And to be able to move with very little discomfort.  Oh what a joy.  I spend right around 45 minutes at a time in the pool.  I don't get in every day but almost.  I missed a few days (womanly stuff) and it sure was great to get back in it yesterday.  So am I ready to run a 5K, no, but life is looking up.
And if you are interested.......I've lost 15 pounds.

I have to say that I truly feel blessed this day.  I'm a very emotional eater.  I have not done to well this week with my eating.  To much stress and to much sugar.  I have exercised a few times but also just found myself floating in the pool relieving stress.  So I was kind of concerned what the scales might say when I got on them this morning. -1.5 I was so thankful!
I have a big bowl of fresh fruit waiting for me so I'm off!

Made it to Friday

This hasn't been the best of weeks for me.  That's all I'm going to say here.  But if you go to my other blog, MyMJPlace, you can get the whole story.

May I just say, ahhhhhhhhhhh.  I love being in the warm water.  Even if I don't exercise.  Just being in the water is so relaxing and soothing of sore muscles, which after doing 30 wall push up I have.  I haven't counted calories this week.   Family in town, time of school, holiday coming.  I know all stupid excuses.  And yes....I've gained weight.  I have just got to convince myself I have to count the rest of my life.  YUCK!
I was asked how the pool will be finished.  The back side has all the mechanics. Nothing there.  The other two sides will be finished like a wall.  I think we will just use plywood and not sheet rock.  I have then bought some sticky back vinyl tile that I will put on the wall.  It is suppose to look like redwood.
It may take a while to get it finished.  I want to make could and sure that none of the plumbing connections are going to leak or anything.  We did have a couple of leaks at start up.  They have stopped now.
Come soak anytime you would like!
