Post edit: Update made to the squat challenge.
“We can risk love or settle for the safety fear provides.”
My fear of swimming has kept me on the sidelines for a long time. I’m not even sure where this fear comes from considering I was a lifeguard during one late teenage summer. I can swim, enjoy the water, and love to be in and around water…but, when it comes to athletic swimming, my knees get weak.
Saturday, I took one small step toward my fear. And guess what? It wasn’t so bad. Not sure if I’m quite at the point of love, but at least I am not letting my fear hold me back from trying something new.
I even got pointers from a guy in the lane next to me. With the exception of a few technical things, he said I had a “nice stroke.” Then he went on to explain a few of the “technical” things including this wild arm thing I do every third stroke. What? Huh?! Oh well. Me and my flailing arm made it 40 minutes in the pool which came out to just a little more than a quarter mile swim. Sllloooooowwww goes it.
Tomorrow, me and my flailing arm will try again.
Wanna talk about round booty’s now? My sisters sent me a message this week that she was doing a 30 day Squat Challenge that was issued at her local gym. I may be 300 miles away, but I took up her challenge. This is super exciting because my booty is prone to wander from its youthful round state. Here are the details:
|Day 1/20||Day 2/25||Day 3/30||Day 4/35||Day 5/40||Day 6/45|
|Day 7/50||Day 8/55||Day 9/60||Day 10/REST||Day 11/65||Day 12/70||Day 13/75|
|Day 14/80||Day 15/85||Day 16/90||Day 17/95||Day 18/100||Day 19/100||Day 20/50|
|Day 21/55||Day 22/60||Day 23/100||Day 24/65||Day 25/70||Day 26/100||Day 27/REST|
|Day 28/80||Day 29/85||Day 30/90||Day 31/100|
There may or may not be before and after pictures at the end. You’ll just have to stick around to see.
