One Summer Down, Two to Go

For a while there I didn't think Goal 63 was going to come to fruition, but the weather warmed up finally. ScottieDog and I went down to the pool this afternoon. It was GREAT!!!! The water was perfect!

The thing is, we pay a lot of money in rent, and it has recently occurred to me that we pay for a lot of things we don't use, like the pool and the gym. I've only swum in this pool twice in the ten years I've lived here. How silly is that?

ScottieDog got a lot of pictures of me looking like a white whale, but I'm not going to post them here now. Maybe later, if I reach Goal 45. They're definitely good "before" pictures!!!

whale? I don't see any whale!!! I hope you enjoyed the swim- I miss having access to a pool (especially when it was in the 90s here today!)

Good luck with your goals...I was really impressed to see that you are rubbing off on your husband.

Hey, Emily,

Impressed with my husband I assume!

You and your husband are both SO inspirational!

(And I finally went swimming in the ocean for the first time last week after spending an entire summer living by the beach!)

Aw Crabby! I would never have done this if it weren't for you and Merry and the inimitable Cranky Fitness!!! Talk about inspiring.

And I've lived here practically right next to the Atlantic Ocean for ten years, and have never gone to the shore. :-o How dumb is that? It IS on my list. I'd feel so dumb if I never even went.
