I have gone seasons, sometimes months at a time, when I was either ill, recovering from surgery or injury, or could not get rides (often due to my drivers being unavailable for these reasons or out of town), but for the most part I have been true to my oath and have been faithfully attending water exercise classes for over two years now (I haven't been discharged from formal therapy for nearly that long, but when I was, we really stepped up the intensity and consistency of standard gym visits.
Since my mom's incident early last month, I have only made it to the gym one per week, but my friend who has given me these weekly rides just thought up a solution to remedy this and get me there a second time each week after Thanksgiving! :) I also may be trying out the gym where my mom now has her membership (her insurance pays the dues there, but no longer at my gym)
AAARRRGGG, Blogger ate 2/3 of my post. I don't think I'll get a chance to write again for a few days, but I'll post what I have so far, along with key words weight, zumba, discouragement, van cleaning, balance, tires, little things and thankful, so hopefully I can come back and give you part 2 of this post!
