HELP! I want to learn to swim!
Wednesday, July 15, 2009
I want to learn how to swim. I have been around water nearly all my life. Trips to the lake, to the beach and yes sometimes even the pool when in was travelling in my military days. However, during all that time, I never learned how to swim. For some reason I never thought it important. But now, I want to learn how to swim.
I said I was not going to join any gyms because that is an expense I really don’t need, especially since I am now unemployed, but guess what, I did it anyway. Monday I took my happy self down to the Health and Wellness Center which is 15 miles away and signed up (my daughter and me) for 3 months. Now since, I’ve made that commitment I may as well take advantage of it. I have decided to try a spinning class and Zumba class; wish me luck on both.
The main purpose for the blog is the swimming lessons. I am so excited about it I can hardly wait. The bad news is adult lessons do not start until August 10th. I was wondering if any of you had any advice on what I can do to prepare for the lessons. From my understanding the instruction is for 6 lessons so I need to learn as much as possible within that time. So again, if you guys have any suggestions for me as to how I can prepare ahead of time I would greatly appreciate it.
Before I close let me leave you with this: Remember to celebrate your small successes as they can lead to big benefits. It is easy to become discourage because we have not reached an ultimate goal and we fail to realize the improvements we have made on the path to those goals. If you are still in the weight loss fight and you are truly giving it all you got, that alone deserves applause and a pat on the back. Appreciate yourself and encourage yourself for where you are now, we have no control over tomorrow so be appreciative of the accomplishment made today.
Peace and Blessings
