Here There and Everywhere

Expat wanderer


My friend is finally back, and oh! We are so happy to see each other again. So today we got together with all kinds of new exercise equipment and ideas. After looking at photos, we spent an hour doing aqua-aerobics. Actually, that was enough for me. It was a great day to be outside, the pool was just cool enough – not like a hot tub and not so chilled your toes turn blue, but just right – and it was very very private. We could look as foolish as we wanted and no one cared.

Then we hit Buns of Steel, and from time to time, I totally wiped out. How can they keep smiling and breathing and talking while they are doing all these totally exhausting exercises?

And then, she showed me moves on the exercise ball that i can’t even comtemplate right now. First I have to learn how to keep my balance.

But leaving, what a disaster. I almost fell down the stairs! I don’t have Buns of Steel, I have Legs of Rubber! Looks like I need to build up my strength a little. 😦

  3. Chicapappi – We did have fun! today I am paying the price. That’s me you see walking gingerly on my rubbery legs!

    Morbid – we didn’t go to a gym. We did it in the privacy of home! She has some great tapes – I know, I know, exercise is hard, but not so bad if you have someone to laugh with.

  5. It’s not so boring, Kinano, if you have someone to laugh with. And it really would be nice to feel FIT, wouldn’t it?
