    Got a swim in this morning in a cold lake. It was awesome because the weather was just beautiful and the lake was really calm. I smiled knowing that the cold water burned additional calories over and above those from swimming! Yea lakes!!

    That is awesome; Its hard trying to swim laps in a round-shape pool. But I have noticed that swimming burns off more calories, compared to my other routine exercises.

    That's fantastic. I didn't know you could loose that kind of weight just swimming. emoticon emoticon
