With his new job has come an unlooked-for blessing, we have a much-reduced rate at a local fitness place. This place has everything--and I mean everything--I have wanted to be able to do with the kids. Today we went for the first time and we all used the pool. It was 75 degrees today and just lovely. The sky was fully blue with those wispy summer clouds and perfect for swimming laps. I forgot just what an excellent exercise it is - no impact, but wow, great exercise! I am so out of shape so it feels good to hurt a little bit at the end of the workout. I used to be on a swim team so I know just how much this kind of exercise works for me. My daughters joined me. It was lovely!
