Just Keep Swimming

I am back in action with a work out/ eating better routine.  I posted about trying Barre Class a while back and really loved that workout.  However, I wanted to be able to try more classes with more schedule options so I decided to join my local YMCA.

I tried Yoga Fusion the other day and loved it! Today I wanted to explore the pool.  So I ran a few miles on the treadmill and headed to the pool.

I have always been a water lover; I was on swim team and a lifeguard [Shout out to my Trails Pool Sharks].  However, I haven’t swam laps in probably close to 8 or 9 years.  It was back in college and I definitely didn’t do it on a regular basis.  So I busted out the speedo I wore on swim team [AKA vintage speedo because it is 15+ years old] and my goggles and I was ready to go.

Side note: why are speedo’s so funny looking on my body.

In my head I was going to swim a mile [32 laps at the YMCA]. And then I jump in and swam ONE lap and thought HOLY &%$@ this is WAY harder then I remember! Where are some floaties when I need them??!?!!

However, I took my time and did 16 laps and felt good about myself.  This has definitely shown me how I need to adjust expectations but also push myself. I am enjoying trying new classes and getting back into old fitness habits!

What are your favorite classes and fitness routines?

I love my Celestial Green Tea it is definitely a great afternoon pick me up! Can’t help but love my animal print mug!

I also got to attend a fabulous YMCA breakfast event called the “Chairs Roundtable Breakfast” on behalf of the Westside YMCA. My husband is on the board but I love getting to support such a wonderful cause in our community!  They have some BIG things happening! Plus, the breakfast was AMAZING!

The other item I love and that makes me happy are thank you notes! I love giving and receiving them! I was just talking to my MIL (shout out to Bard she reads this :)) about how many people do not write these and how it makes us so angry sometimes! People don’t even acknowledge gifts these days! I try to take the time to quickly write them whether I receive a gift, go to a dinner or just want to send a quick thanks for a good deed! So many people who surround me go above and beyond what is expected and I want them to know I appreciate it.  I will get off my soap box now!
