I swam 15 laps in the pool last night. (A lap being 2 lengths, up and back) Since I was using the alphabet trick* to keep track of them that means I got to letter “O”. This also means that I am up to just under a half-mile of swimming (a full half mile is 17.6 laps) in a bit under an hour. Certainly not breaking any speed records here but it felt great and I even slept well and look forward to tackling those 15 (or even 16 if I can work up to it) again next time.
Fat and happy and swimming. That’s the way I love to be! It has never felt so good to not wait until a particular weight-loss goal in order to do the things I’ve always wanted to do.
*Very quickly I realized I was repeating a series of the same few words and to stop it I tried to envision words I might use for the Scrabble games my husband and I play. I like the idea that I’m working my mind as well as my body!
