Wha?! Where do I find this?

I'm watching Kirstie Alley's Big Life which is actually more interesting than I had anticipated. Right now she and a couple of people are riding exercise bikes in a pool! Where do I find this? I want to ride an exercise bike in a pool! Has anyone else done this before? I would also like a swimming buddy to go to water aerobics or to go aqua jogging with me. If I can find a Tuesday evening class to go to with someone I would seriously be excited. Who's in? I NEED a workout partner. I'm tired of trying to do everything alone.

I came to the realization this weekend as I read my copy of Shape magazine that I have started to really slip with my exercise routine. Actually, it probably wasn't much of a realization, I pretty much know I'm being a slacker. But I think having a monthly reminder of what I could be doing for myself, like a magazine subscription, would not be a bad thing for relatively little money. There's a great pilates workout in here that I think I will try. It actually looks, dare I say it, fun.

That said, I'm going to drag my butt out of bed come hell or high water to go to another dragon boating workout on Wednesday and I'm making it my goal to go RUNNING, not walking, three times this week. I'm not going to give up couch to 5k because I've been keeping it up for so long and I think if I power through and make it to the next level of workout I'm going to be really proud of myself. I've come too far to give up now!

If you read my blog and haven't commented before or in a long time I'd love to hear from you. I'm beginning to feel like I only have three or four readers and I'd like to be wrong. :)


  1. I'll work out with you, but I only have a YMCA membership!

  2. I WISH we could work out together. But we live on opposite ends of Portland! I do have a free gym at my work that I've been using. I am starting to feel frustrated too. Just keep it up! Fyi, I love Kirstie Alley's Big Life too!! Remember you are not alone! No one comments on my blog at all either, lol.

  3. hm..I could see if I can do YMCA Julia. This might work!

  4. I saw that episode too and wondered about doing that!
