    Gwinity:Snorkeling sounds like great fun! I plan to buy a snorkel and fins for the summer. I guess it's your summer down under right now. Any tips for a novice that I should know about?

    Venfica:You'll get there. It cant ake time to build up your stamina butit can be done. A little practice everyday goes a long way.

    Miss Shimmy: You've inspired me in so many ways.

    Ooh, guess what I've done today ladies? I brought some clothes to work out in after work...although there are 8 plus hours till I get off from work that I could change my mind...ooh I weighed myself and I'm back where I was before my little week or so off I took...though I haven't been doing well with the soda, though the rotting teeth thing has been on the mind...Hope everyone has a good day, or rest of the day, whichever it may be.

    Stacy: I've had days like that where I was planning on going to the Y and something comes up. It usually happens on my bellydance class time. You'll make it! And it'll feel so good when you're done.

    Babylonia, if you're buying a snorkel, get one with a release valve on the bottom rather than the old-fashioned J-shape, so you can expel water and not drown if you go under water or a wave hits you. I find closed-in fins that fit like shoes make my feet cramp, but the open-back ones are more expensive, so at the moment, I'm swimming without any. Remember to spit in your mask, wipe it then rinse it so you don't fog up. Wear LOTS of sunscreen, and reapply it liberally. Watch out for jellyfish and sharks and sharp things (wear booties, if you don't have fins, to protect your feet from litter and shells), and only go as far as you feel confident. And most importantly, have FUN!

    Miss Shimmy: That's fantastic - congratulations!! Is this the final thing you need to do before becoming a fully-fledged instructor?

    Hey, I'm not sure if this has been mentioned here(I haven't read all 47 pages I must confess, but I've been observing a decent amount), but have any of you tried measuring your percent body fat instead of weighing yourself? A work out buddy mentioned it to me today, and let me use his scale. I think it's more accurate - weight can go up and down: losing fat will make us lose weight, but gaining muscle will make us gain weight, and muscle weighs more than fat. The scale that measured me told me I was 22% body fat today. I'll keep an eye on it and see what happens over the course of me working out. Keep up the hard work everyone!

    Yes, my scale measures body fat percentage...though the last couple of times I've weighed I got off the scale before it told me that...the last I remember it being was 29% I think???
