Swimming


I love that our family has found a sport we all love. Our kids signed up for swim team this summer and LOVED it. Blake has even signed up for swim school this winter. He loves it too. So, wanting to be that great mother who understood her kids pain, I signed up for an adult swim class twice a week too. It has been hard to get there - but the times I have gone, that coach has about killed me. First night - 60 laps. Yes. Me, the fat, lazy one swam 60 laps. Anytime I'd stop to rest she'd say, "Stop hanging on that wall!! Get moving." Anyway, I have learned so much! I love it too. I'd probably actually lose some weight too, if I didn't eat half a bag of buttered movie popcorn and half a box of milk duds right before practice. Oh well. I guess I've stayed off that heart attack for one more day.

Ok -that's just plain scary. Who would have ever guessed my swim teacher would get on my blog??? AHhhhh! Luckily I didn't tell you how mean she really is. . . just kidding. She's awesome. I need someone to push me or else I would hang on that wall and breathe or something crazy like that!

Way to go, Melanie! I just want to know what you wear to your swim workout...a fancy cap of some sort...we need some visuals...Love, Terri

I wish I had some cool swim cap or something. Lame fat mom in a mu mu of a swimsuit swimming for her life. Actually, that could be quite a picture in itself. Maybe I can get Jeff to come by and take that humiliating picture for me and then I can post it for the whole world to see and then my self esteem can soar through cyberspace.
