Day 20: Saturday III

Kari, one of the ladies who does pilates instruction, as well some individual pool coaching (not sure what it is - but I have seen her work one-on-one with some people in the pool) was in charge of water aerobics today.  She, apparently, didn't get the memo that Saturday's are an easy day at the DFC.  A bunch of us played water volleyball, and then went right into water aerobics.  Bad move.  I had no idea I would need every ounce of energy that I had, and then some, to survive the "Killing by Kari".  Honestly.  I always feel like I have done something, sometimes get breathing heavy, during other water classes - but nothing like this.  We never stopped!  Never.  There were a lot of people in the pool, going every direction - I think I drank more water from the pool (disgusting) than I had to drink the rest of the day!  It was ridiculous!  The reason for this beating?  Maryland lost yesterday!  Damn college basketball!! =)  I had to spend the next hour just floating in the pool to recover!  After it was over, and my need to swear at her and hold her under the water subsided, I could appreciate it - I would never push myself that hard!  She is good!

Other than that, not much went on today.  The weekends are pretty low-key.  I am planning to head back to my room shortly for some movie time and sleep.  It is wonderful. 

I am certain tomorrow will be even slower - and it is also the day I have to say goodbye to 2 of my favorites here at the DFC.  It will be a sad day, with little to report.  I will check back in with all of you on Monday.  Have a great Sunday, everyone!


  1. Nat - I have been reading your blog since the beginning and LOVE it! I have also passed it to some friends who are truly inspired! I can't believe the 4 weeks is almost over...but I'm sure you are anxious to get home.
    I think you need to set up a couple of classes to teach me and others all you learned down there about food (grocery shopping) and cooking! I would be willing to pay! Can't wait to see you when you get back.

  2. Hi Nad so glad to hear you are only 22 way to go. I know I'm one of tne people you were talking about who don't check there email,yes that WAS me.I had missy stlye my hair on friday before I got my cast off (because it is to hard to do myself with cast) and she said she was telling Cory that she was impressed that I was getting on my computer and writing you as often as I was. I guess more people than I know think this is and big step forward in the computer world for me. shout out to me.
    I guess having a relative many miles away promps a computer illiterate to attempt these things go figure. No I can't belive this is your last week,but it will be good to have you home. Not that I see you once a week or anything, it will just be good to have you back where you belong. Glad to here you are doing so well and feeling good shout out to you. Supper friday night was fun,we were home early,no one fell out of the car with a dog twice and couldn't get up. No one backed through there garage door,so it's been a quite weekend. The weather is finally getting nice sun is out today and it's warm. They are saying it might snow on fri. I hope not. Well you have a good day, hope your monday goes well. Talk to you soon. love you Buggie and Steve

  3. Nad...I am very excited to try this new dressing :) My sunday has been quiet too - updated the Anderson's yesterday on our trip to NC. Cyn could repeat a lot of your stories from the blog - so I do appreciate your blog as a means to advance many on the wonderful technological advances available to them. Beautiful day here in Minnesota - 62 degrees! Makes me very hopeful that Spring and warm weather activities are close by - Steph and I had found some great trails last year in the fall - Maybe that can be a new type of happy hour? :) Very proud of you these last few weeks, but selfishly I am excited to have you back home - I am already watching the weather, baby!

  4. Nad - I'm so happy to hear you talk about how much you can do. I always knew you had it in you and Im so happy that DFC has pulled out all the best in you. Keep it up! I can't wait to see you on Friday!

  5. Hey Nad
    OK...what's with people knowing about my "procedure"...and yes..I lived thru it...I'm not sure how...but no cancer...I'm maybe good for 10 years. The next time I see you face to face...I'll tell you all about it. Glad to hear you're doing so well...I wish I was...everyday is a fat cloths hardly fit me....Oh well...maybe tomorrow. Can't wait to see you...keep up the good work. All is good in your parents are having fun...wish we were there...but we will be soon! I'm heading to Arkansas to visit Brody this weekend. Then Mexico next...I love packing. Talk to you soon! Love Auntie Rhonda

  6. I am glad that you did not hold Keri under the water! This new wonderful phase of your life should not be spent in prison!
