Making My Health A Priority: A Success!

I weigh more than I've ever weighed in my life, and I'm tired all the time. However, I startle myself with the things this old body of mine can do sometimes. I've been swimming since October and on Thursday....

I swam a whole mile! 

My original goal was just to keep moving in the pool. 
It took a couple of months before I could swim freestyle for half an hour without stopping. 
My latest goal was to add some interval training.
It was my husband who suggested I might be able to swim a mile. 
And I did!

Ironman Triathlon, here I come!


  1. Congratulations - it's fun to be able to surprise ourselves :)

  2. Hi Laurie!!!
    Yes, it is. It gives me hope that I can do more than I think I can.
