T-12: Pushing Myself

Pretty quiet day. For the first time in almost 2 weeks, my regular aqua aerobics instructor was in the water. She must have missed it, because she was jazzed up AND pushed us pretty hard. She was mixing up things and adding new moves. It seemed like we also went up and down the pool more. It intensifies whichever exercise we're doing, because there's even more resistance from the water.

I'm glad, I needed the push. It is easy to get complacent and I realized I'd reached a plateau. I try to use weights, but I can barely stay in the water with the foam weights. I try the solid weights now and then, but they drag me down. I keep trying them, though, because at least I can keep working on that. I'm already so bouyant, the foam weights lift me higher, so I'm distracted from the exercises.

Also made tentative plans to share couponing tips with more friends. I clipped coupons from the last two weekends, because having all the inserts since June were getting bulky. There are so many half and full page ads, it really reduced the bulk. Now I just need to do the June and July coupons. I sorted them into ones for me, those I think friends can use and expired ones to donate.
