Aqua Fit Shoes?

Ahhhhh! I need somebody to go down to the mall and get me some bedroom slippers or maybe a fluffy bathroom mat that I can cut in half and duck tape to my massive feet. I have no common sense! First thing this morning I beat up my feet and knees doing lunges and squats with my trainer and then I did 2 Aqua Fit classes. The second class I picked a corner and just ignored the class and jumped around like crazy as I thought I wasn’t working hard enough. Then I jumped around some more on my own for another half hour. I like jumping around in the water. I really can’t jump much at all on land. Now I need a nap really bad and my work day has only just started. This is going to be a long day and as per usual I will probably wake up as soon as I leave the office and be staring at the ceiling of my bedroom tonight instead of sleeping. I also scraped all the skin off of my feet jumping on tiled pool bottom too long, hence the give me slippers call for help!

I Want a Vest!

What is the deal when you can’t buy a vest anymore?  In my opinion the vest is a great piece of clothing.  You have a plain dress that shows off too many lumps.  No problem put on a long vest all is forgiven.  Outfit not professional enough for work? Get out the vest.  Want to have all eyes on your face? Ruffled blouse with a vest.  Funky? Vest! Stomach pooch? Vest! Is it because of those people that have vests with cats or horses all over them?  Maybe it was the Christmas vests.  They killed the industry didn’t they?  I had to go to OSFcostumerentals  to find any pictures of vests I liked.  Apparently my taste is stuck in 1930.

D2 Shoes

My cycling shoes have arrived!!!!  I ordered them at the end of January.  D2 Shoes sent me the measuring kit and foam forms for me to give them the size and shape of my feet.  Thats right they are custom made for my feet.  I sent in the foam and such mid February and I have been waiting ever since.  Seems they are very popular and although they have been trying to add staff and keep up … well.  I wasn’t too upset as my injuries make it hard for me to walk and bike riding is not much better. I am really excited about this so I tried them on and modelled them around the office.  They look great with my black dress.  It is amazing to have a pair of shoes with the arch support in the right spot and no crushed toes!!!  I have trouble even buying running shoes for these monster feet of mine.  All the better to not tip over I say. I guess this means I have to show my sorry face in spinning class again after a long break.

The Bountiful Bathing Beauty

For many years there was one rule that could not be broken.  Nobody is seeing me in a bathing suit ever!  Well when I joined the gym 5 years ago at 446 Lbs there was not a lot of exercises or machines I could work out on.  There was certainly no getting down on the floor for some crunches because there was no guarantee I would be able to get back up.  It only made sense that the pool was the place I belonged.  My first few months I wore a regular one piece bathing suit with bike shorts underneath and a bra.  The bike shorts and even the bathing suit didn’t hold up too well to swimming and soaking in the spa every day.  I probably looked more conspicuos with my extra layers than if I had just dressed in a regular swimsuit.
