Cooler Than Cooking

 I have been reading so many blogs where people post their goals.  It holds them accountable to someone other than themselves, so I thought I would start doing the same. I am a procrastinator by nature, so it will probably be good for me to have someone other than myself know about my plans.

I decided I wanted to swim  a minimum of 50 laps this week.  I've done the math and 5 laps in our pool is almost a 50 meter pool length, so each lap for me is a multiple of 5.  Now all I have to do is keep count and divide by 5. This is going to feel more like a word problem than exercise.  Oh my, what do I do if I am swimming and Johnny comes by with 4 apples and Sue comes by with 2?

As an aside, if you leave your goggles on a hanger on the porch all year, the band will crumble when you put it around your head. So much for the 1,000 year degradable argument!

 Swimming blindly,
Anne

  1. Good luck. Exercise is always a good goal. I think about posting an exercise goal then and again, but haven't done it yet.

    1. I think it will be sometime in October before I go to sleep with totally dry hair. It is the upside and downside of living somewhere that night swimming is so pleasant.

  4. Love it. I used to swim regularly and need to take the great white whale back to the pool. I always had trouble counting my laps though. I would find myself chanting three to myself on what had to be an even lap. Sigh.

  5. I swim more than I have to because I lose count sometimes and have to go back to where I knew I was before. Maybe that is a great invention: a waterproof lap clicker.
