24 GOING ON 70


So recently my roommates and I have taken up water aerobics at the gym. I was skeptical at first...old ladies....bathing suits.....old ladies IN bathing suits....but to my surprise, I really like it! It's a good way to workout your entire body and its pretty fun! Most of the old ladies just use water aerobics as a "social hour" and for the most part stay out of the way! The instructor told me my form was perfect as I was doing criss cross jumping jacks! I may just turn into the teacher's pet!! JK! Anyways, I think you all should give it a go! It's really kinda fun!

that's funny, kaija. once when on vacation i was in the pool swimming laps and a water aerobics class was starting. the teacher invited me to join and suggested doing everything twice as fast as everyone else - everyone else was over 60. it was really fun, and if i ever have the opportunity to do it again, i will.

Hey Kaija! I'm so glad you found my blog! It's been so long since we've caught up! That's awesome you are studying to teach 1st grade! I taught elementary school for three years before I had my baby. It was so much fun.
It's so great to hear from you! Now I can keep updated! I'm so glad you have a blog!

Haha- water aerobics are great. Kristin and I did that back in high school at the gym, once... and the class was FULL of old ladies. Hehe. I love that you're doing it. It's way fun. Good job on your perfect form, too. I'm sure I looked pathetic. lol

HEY! No making fun of the "mature" ladies in swimsuits since I now belong to that category! LOL!

I have taken up lap swimming while my kids are doing swimming lessons this summer and LET ME TELL YOU it is so much harder than it looks!
So good for you and water aerobics!
