I LOVE the water.
I truly believe this is the real me.

However, if I want to look like this

I need to do more of this

I taught swimming for 10 years. I swam competitively for 7, but I HATE swimming laps. So boring. I guess if I'm going to make swimming part of my regime, I should look into one of these.

Today Holly and I met at the pool at 5:30 am only to find the pool opened at 5:45. It took everything we had to stay awake. When we finally got in the pool we discovered they keep it at 86 degrees so swimming laps felt like we were swimming in this.

Wow. That is so early to go swimming.
I get so puffed out swimming.
I have started walking again each day now we have a new dog... effort to be healthier this year.

I am totally a water girl too but agree about laps. But it is such good exercise. Great job getting up so early to go. Here's to a healthier year for all of us. :)

Hi- Thank you for your comment about our school PE situation. I never really thought about it in terms of the PTA doing her dirty work but you are so right - that's exactly what she is asking us to do. And now that I think about it, it's not the first time. Maybe the principal is the problem, not the teacher! Sorry to hear it's the same there, too. Thanks again.
