For those of you that have had some struggles with your ever-advancing age, I suggest you check into DFC immediately. I have been referred to as "young" no fewer than 5 times in the last 2 days. For someone that is almost 35 - that isn't exactly the first adjective that comes to mind, when describing me. It is lovely to hear - and I am going to embrace this (possibly last of my life) chance to be "young".
That being said - my feelings prior to coming here, have been confirmed. The average age is well above 35. My "Experienced" fellow residents are fantastic. Out-going, interesting and entertaining. And, -they are all willing to share their experiences with us "youngsters".
Today I attempted the mat pilates class. Emphasis on tried. Some of the moves were a little challenging, considering my current mass - but I am going to stick with it. I figure that will be a good way to monitor my progress - right? I also got to have an introduction to the weight machines. During this I was referred to as "Arnold" (as in Schwarzenegger) because I could life more than the people that I was doing the intro with. Now I am totally not taking this seriously (LIES! I am totally strong!!) because the other members of my group were 63 and 51 - - again, I am YOUNG!!
I also took part in something kind of cool today - it was a "female round table". Any female attending the program can come, and it is just a forum for people to discuss any topics they want in a totally confidential environment (what is said at the round table - stays at the round table. It is a little Vegas, that way.) It is kind of nice to get different perspectives, from such a diverse crowd (people from all over the country, all ages, etc).
We still had a lot of classes today - but I got some exercise in as well. There has been mention of Karoake tomorrow night - but I don't think they are going until 8pm, which is my approximate bedtime. =) I will probably be sitting that out.
They are claiming it is supposed to snow here tonight - I don't know that I believe it. It still feels pretty warm out to me! I forget what it is like in the "south" when any sort of accumulating precipitation is mentioned. I told them not to worry - I could run a carpool if there is snow on the ground tomorrow! =) There are no snow days at FC!
Well.... it is off to shower and bed for me. Take care everyone!
