1 hour Aqua Aerobics class
The Five Tibetans (day 6, week 1)
Aqua Aerobics class today was a killer.  It’s not a namby-pamby class – she works you flat out for the entire hour.  I’ll be stiff tomorrow, that’s for sure.
I’ve been STARVING/HUNGRY all afternoon – not sure why.  Could be because of the hard aqua aerobics class I took today.  Seems like whenever I spend time in the water, I am hungry all day.  I know that the latest ‘theory’ is that exercise doesn’t help with weight loss (it just makes you hungry and today seems to prove that).  
Also, some people advocate NO exercise – but I’ve come to enjoy exercise for the very first time in my life and I simply don’t want to give it up.  I think it’s good for my mental, emotional and physical well being and I plan to continue to exercise – just do it in a smart manner.  That’s why I’m shifting back to swimming/aqua aerobics a couple days a week until the water is warm enough for recreational surfing.  Water activity is less stressful and wearing on the body than pounding away on the elliptical or treadmill or bike so I think it’s a smart switch – plus, I love the water!
I love my ‘little house’.  We have a 20’x30′ brick building out the back of the main house that I call my ‘little house’.  As I was coming back inside this morning, after doing my meditation and Five Tibetan routine, I thought to myself…..I just LOVE my little house.  I am the luckiest girl on the planet to have this little building of my own.  It’s basically my studio, my playhouse, my oasis.  
I have it set up with a stereo, shelving, a huge work table, my sewing stuff, two comfy Barnes & Noble-type easy chairs, a TV/DVD, a meditation area, plenty of space to do my yoga routines…it just couldn’t be any more perfect.   Colour me thankful and grateful.  Huge thanks to Mr. W – who makes all my dreams come true!
