Hello Everyone. I meant to give you all a wee update about my Aqua Aerobics last week or should I say Battered Body with Brutal Bertha Class! lol. It was just my friend and I that went, and I must admit the Teacher wasn't as brutal as normal. Phew! lol. I had my list all sorted for this week and the numbers were up to 6 which Is a fair few people to be nominating their carcuses for a good old fashioned beating! lol.

I got myself all psyched up for the class and sent the texts to arrange the meeting time for everyone and one by one they all cancelled!. The first one being my wee treasure ,who had sore feet, Then one had to work, One had someone visiting, One had an upset stomach and One was drunk! lol. Hmmm. Well! that left me on my little lonesome. Could I do It? Could I really walk all the way there by myself, climb Into a pool with a load of strangers and do a whole hour's class with Brutal Bertha roaring 'Faster'!.

The answer Is Yes. I did It. I am so pleased that I did. I was nervous and jittery and spent the whole time extremely self conscious, but hey, I did It and I feel good. My confidence has had a wee boost. So the next time you are In that kind of situation, tell yourself this, If Pam can do It, so can I. ;-) I will leave you now with this funny wee video. Hope you enjoy It. Take Care, Back Soon. xx 

P.S. Thanks Mort for the award. You're a star. ;-) xx

I love water areobics.  I live in South Florida and I find it easier to exercise due to the heat down here.  People don't realize you can get a darn good workout in the pool.

I don't take classes anymore....I just go in my pool and do what I learned to try and take off some pounds I put on after I stopped smoking last year!  Yikes, 40 pounds.............but the best thing is I rid myself of the addiction!

Well HOORAY FOR YOU PAM!!  That's great, I know it must feel terrific.  Still I'd say you need to improve absoutely nothing about yourself, and I know whatever changes come about you'll stay "star-struck"!  Good seeing you again xo CATHY
