Even when it seems like it's too hot outside to do anything productive...there is always a pool open somewhere. Swimming is a great way to burn calories without much effort. Just treading water helps burn those pesky calories in a jiffy. I went swimming for an hour yesterday then tracked it on here and it ended up being over 1000 calories burned. Last one in is a rotten egg!

Outside today and 5 hours in the pool, at least granddaughter. I was there of course and in the pool for a couple of hours trying to show her how to swim. She will conquer it by the end of summer. I tried to swim and didn't do too bad for 5 laps but later the back said slowly do it. Enjoy summer.
I am so happy that I got the pool open today. Next week I will be able to get in and start my pool exercises and swimming. I live in the pool and outside during all the warm weather. I work in my yard, garden and flower garden everyday if it is not raining. Then in the afternoon I get in the pool for several hours. Healthy habits to continue every day. 23767252
