Water Aerobics

My friend Stephenie told me about this prenatal water aerobic class at one of the local YMCA's back when we 1st announced we were expecting.

I was interested, but kinda put it on the back burner. After my last dr's appt, and gaining some pregnancy weight, I decided it was time to check it out. Turns out- I LOVE the class! It's $30/month and we have class at least 2x a week, 3x a week if we want to. It's an hour long- and I feel SO good afterwards.

I can definitely tell that I'm working out my arms- but my feet feel SO good after working all day. I hope to continue with the class up until the very end of this pregnancy. It is money well spent.

I really like our instructor as well- she shared this recipe she saw on Food Network (Paula Dean?) earlier in the day:
Take french/some sort of bread- using olive oil or butter, brown the bread.
Spread cream cheese on top of it, allowing it to melt.
Top as you wish with avocados, cheese, tomatoes, etc.

It sounded amazing- especially as we were all exercising :) I hope to try it soon!

The class sounds very enjoyable! I wish I would have had something like that to do, swimming has sounded so soothing the entire pregnancy!

I've never commented on your blog before but I keep up with the deals and such that you post. I just had to comment though when I saw that you're going to water aerobics at the Y. I took that class at the Thornton YMCA when I was pregnant with my 11 month old. I loved it, so good to stay in shape and feel great. I still do water aerobics every once in a while. Do you have Penny as your instructor or someone else?
