I think this bod will always refuel
Whenever I put it in the pool
It helps my body to transform
Just to have the water warm.
But if weather makes that impossible
I find the warm sauna absolutely to-die-ful!
Can anyone tell me what it means in the fitness tracker to tread water for 30 minutes and burn 447 calories? Now, I can tread water the way they taught us in high school swimming class. But that was to conserve energy if we were ever to fall out of a boat in the Gulf of Mexico. We learned to almost dead man float and exert a little effort when we needed a breath, just enough effort to raise our head out of the water to breathe, look around for rescue, and then go back down again. I call it the crocodile float today. What I know is I can float vertically all day and not move a muscle.
I'm sure that is NOT what is intended to burn over 400 calories in 30 minutes!!
So, I think I need a video. Because I'd like to go on doing this and benefitting with the calorie burn. The things I do with my legs also benefit them. I have no more leg pain, where it used to keep me awake at night. That is enough motivation to get to the pool daily and keep that pain away. But I also want to manage my calories in my Tracker goals properly for weight loss, not gain.
