I joined a gym. I've been bad for many years about regular exercise but I have felt like I'm losing my flexibility and I don't want to end up in a wheelchair like my friend with RA. So, I went searching for a gym with water aerobics classes and found one. I went for my first class yesterday but due to some wrong turns I was too embarrassed to walk in late. Instead I drove to our community pool and swam which felt so refreshing on a hot morning. 8 laps was all I could manage. I'm feeling it today, sore and stiff. I'll try again tomorrow. An every-other-day routine will have to be it for now, until my body gets used to exercise. I am hoping this will help my joints and my lungs.
