Menopausal Mermaid

I almost had the pool to myself today, going at noon instead of my usual water aerobics at 9 a.m.  I took it easy this morning, and made the most delicious green smoothie with kale, spinach, celery, parsley, very ripe tomatoes, english cucumber and coconut water.

I was surprised how quiet the pool was, as we are having another hot spell.  I grabbed a pink noodle and floated and paddled and biked and canoed up and down the pool.  Jumped in the hot tub for a few, then back into the pool which felt downright icy after that!

Did you know that water is great compression for your lymphatic system and increases blood flow to your heart?  Did you know that swimming laps does more for your core and metabolism than walking?  Did you know that hydro-therapy is ancient ancient medicine?

I must have been either a dolphin or a mermaid
in some other life,
cause when I get in the water,
it
feels
like
I'm
home.
