Swimming

I'm not skinny. I don't know if I will ever be skinny, but I can lose weight. So I'm watching what I eat and I'm swimming. So, you will note the Swimming Calorie Calculator in the right column. It makes me feel better to see the "results" of my work.

It's gonna be a long road or lap lane.

But, while I'm in the pool I love it. It is so refreshing for me to have that private thought time. While going up and back (today 20 times up and back —1000 yards) I can sort through the day and things to come. I love the water and I love the solitude.

So for some time to come my morning thought is "Chlorine: the breakfast of champions."

Wow, that sounds like so much fun. Where are you swimming at?

Tori, I swim at the Y. I figured out the time of day when the only people in the pool are the blue-haired older ladies doing their water aerobics. So far it hasn't been a problem.
