Not my locker, but it's an inspiration for exercise time.
I'm going to share a secret. Obviously sharing a secret on social media is virtually telling the universe, but I'm happy to share with hundreds of my closest blog friends. I've wanted to take up
Kickboxing. Yes, the sweet and sedate Buttercup has a kickboxing fantasy. For practical reasons, kickboxing, a combination of karate mixed with boxing is not the best exercise choice for me. I'm not quick and I worry about falling and adding another broken bone to my catalogue of broken bones. I just look longingly at the notices at the Y for kickboxing and continue with Yoga and swimming.
But yesterday, my fantasy came true and I loved it. As part of my water aerobics for seniors with arthritis our new instructor introduced aqua kickboxing to our curriculum, and it was more fun than I had imagined. I didn't have to worry about falling and I could go at my own pace. The time flew by as I jabbed left and right and upper cut in the pool. When our class was over I was surprised how quickly the time had flown. It's not part of the regular water aerobics classes at our Y, but I'm going to search for it at the other Manhattan Y branches. It's not often that a dream comes true and surpasses the fantasy. Just call me, Buttercup, Aqua Kickboxer.
The gym locker, pictured above, belongs to my friend, Susan. I am in awe of her organizational skills and storage ideas for a teeny-tiny locker. She's used easy and inexpensive gadgets to keep everything organized. I've been carting my things back and forth, but seeing how neat Susan's locker looks I may be signing up for one, too.
Autumn has finally arrived in New York City and I've happily made the transition to long sleeves, fresh apples and a jacket. No complaints from me. I'm enjoying the crispness in the air and the busier fall schedule. Have you found your schedules getting busier?
As ever, thanks for visiting and happy fall wishes!
