I’m doing my happy dance now that it’s September! We watched our first college football game on Saturday evening with friends…..GO DAWGS! This all means that fall and cooler weather can’t be far behind. Thus my most favorite time of year!
I’ll be taping a very special segment for my radio show tomorrow morning. It’s not like other shows have been because I’ve actually taken a challenge to join the good people from “Paddle & Putt”, Davis Love III’s fun store here on St. Simons Island to a little lesson to get me back out in the water. My bestie, Pat Shelnutt and her husband are all into this sport that offers a full body workout.
Did you know you can burn up to 1500 calories when you Paddleboard for just one hour????
Having been rather sedentary all summer after knee replacement surgery I’m ready for an adventure. I actually lost quite a bit of weight just from the sheer effort to move, but lost a lot of muscle tone at the same time. Pat has mentored me through this whole time, having gone through the same surgery a little over a year ago. Our doctor at Emory is also part of the challenge, wanting pictures of us on the boards. My physical therapist says I’m ready…..she’ll even be present to photograph the event.
Stay tuned for more as the time draws near. I’m already back in the pool working on so I think paddleboarding is the next, natural step. You won’t want to miss the radio show next Tuesday evening and Thursday too…WWEZ fm radio 94.7….or live stream it at www.wwezradio.com! Life is meant to be lived and we’re meant to have fun….here’s to my next adventure! Then…..to learn to do yoga while on the board….in the ocean….why not???
