Eyeline Aquatic Dumbbells

We spent a good 20 minutes with the dumbbells and my arms hurt more than they ever have at Zumba. We also spent about 20 minutes on the wall working our legs. Lots of kicking and running and lifting. We did push ups on the wall and I could see my reflection in the window and I was proud of what I was seeing.
But the thing I love most about water fitness is I get to spend time with myself. In Zumba it's so fast-paced there's not time to think. In water fitness there's time to reflect. I can think about my day and work out any frustrations in the water. I can have that internal debate of if I'm working hard enough. And there's just something special about working out in the water.
Throughout the class I kept asking myself why I haven't been to water fitness in over five months and there wasn't a good answer. I think it will be good for me to go to the occasional water fitness class.
