this isn’t running but it’s exercise and that’s good enough in my books….
last night I finally sucked it up (those who follow me on instagram already know this) and went to the adult swim…instead of my usual pretending to swim when it’s really a public swim and then logging it as a workout. I actually went and did some lengths I’m becoming hardcore. It’s awesome!
*FYI – you guys are lucky I post such manly looking photos – now you know why my hair is LONG! I need to “hide” behind it
I actually LOVED IT! I was horrible. I mean I checked out some other bloggers who swim workouts on DM and their paces are in the 20′s while mine are in the high 80′s!! I don’t even know how to decode a swim pace but I can tell you this. My lengths were super shark fast – I just had 5 mins breathing breaks in between each one
Swimming is hard. FACT. All you swimmers out there need to give yourselves a pat on the back, or better yet email me next time you swim and I’ll send you a pat myself
However, I had so much fun! I swam for the first half hour and then I asked the life guard for a floated belt and she had one <— sweet beams of happiness washed over my face and I think she was scared.
I finished the hour with some pool running. It was SWEEET! needless to say, I’ll be going back Make Wednesday my official swim night!
*ps: I still love running, but pool running and exercise with NO pain is amazing and I think everyone should try it I’ll most likely post more about this tomorrow!
Logan has been having severe diarrhea for the past 4 days! I know, you really wanted to know that didn’t you? well now you can rest easy knowing your day is complete – you’re welcome
* what? you were expecting poo pics? disgusting! I finally got Lo to eat broccoli, who knew you had to make them the smallest possible trees ever for this to happen!
The poor little guy had to be put back in pull ups because a simple fart was proving to be disaterous. His bum is RAW from all the wiping that I finally started just hosing him off in the shower. We’ve been giving him oatmeal and epsom salt baths multiple times and day and he loves getting diaper rash cream put on at 2 1/2 years old <— lies. he hates it
*he sure does love water though – in the form of pools and/or splash pads.
He seems much better today. I’ve been trying to figure out what has caused it, as he doesn’t have a fever and there’s no sickness. I’ve been trying to feed him lots of bananas, apple sauce and toast but he can only be persuaded so much.
I hope he gets better soon xo poor guy <— edit: I wrote this last night and this morning he is loads better YAY! because I know you guys care ;)
I’m looking for something healthy to make for dinner tonight but that Colin and Logan will eat – which means it’s got to be GOOD tasting healthy with no weird hard to pronounce vegetables in it – any ideas???
* this salad tasted amazing: lentils, WW pasta, red kidney beans, chickpeas, veggies of all kinds & cottage cheese with olive oil and greek seasoning (no salt added). <— Colin would not eat it
Colin really wants to tackle a homemade lasagna, as believe it or not we’ve never done one….so maybe I’ll do that!!!
1. do you shower naked at the gym/pool/home?? <— I’m just curious
I shower naked only at home
2. diarrhea (you knew it was coming) any tips or tricks other than the “Brat” diet??
3. ever made lasagna?? how’d it turn out?? what kind did you make??
4. who’s running today????
I run today – speedwork. However I’m not in the speedwork mood and have decided to change it up and do some hill repeats tonight on this monster hill near my house. I have no idea how many repeats I’ll end up doing but I’m going to run there and run back. It’s about 1.5 miles out = perfect!
