The Pool opened on Friday and I have been swimming every day since! Saturday I started my **fingers crossed** Everyday Pool Workout, doing 20 laps + Water Aerobics.
I know a fair amount of water aerobic moves from my mom who goes almost every day and does a mix of deep water running and water aerobics. This weekend at Dick’s Sporting Goods I bought a set of water aerobic tools (not sold online, but it was a 6 piece set for $35) and a new set of goggles.
Tonight Mr. Gaunt and I waited until all the kids had gotten out so we could have the pool to ourselves. I swam my laps (I’m starting with 20, but hoping to slowly work my way to 40 this summer) and he goofed off. We realized tonight that Mr. Gaunt’s size is just not very buoyant…and therefore not so good at water aerobics….lol!
It feels so good to be back in a summer routine of swimming and cooking healthy! I could not be more over winter! BOO! I just love all the melons on sale and cherries! I love that its light out till 9pm, and we can leave our windows open. I can just feel the whole healthy lifestyle we had last year coming back, feels so good!
My focus in the pool this year is to do some cardio, and really focus on my abs and arms with my water weights. This is what my set came with:
The dumbells are the best, if you were to only get one thing I would get these. Tonight I swam my laps with my gloves, and oh lord was it a challenge! They give you so much resistance, and I could just feel my muscles aching! Very nice! The belt is nice if you want to tread water but are in a shallow pool.
We have major plans to spend as much time in the pool as possible this summer. Weekends at Jenny and Justins and afternoons in our pool or in Ms. G’s pool (when I work close to her house).
I also think there will be way more blogging now that summer is here! Yay who doesn’t love blogging!
