Swimming is hard and also extremely inconvenient. Since I'm off running for the moment thanks to my stupid feet I've been trying to fill the void in my life and not get fat. Trying to give swimming a go.
I know what you're thinking "Kristen looks so cute in a swim cap." Swim caps are a fantastic way to save yourself a good 30 minutes of combing knots out of your hair.
I made a list.
My Stick figure of what I think I look like swimming.
Did buy this pool, its pretty fun.
A month ago I was trying to switch gyms since I thought it was more expensive than other gyms and I didn't really use their crummy cardio equipment. A month ago I was running and only using the gym twice a week for weights. Well, it's been 3 weeks since my last run. 3 weeks ago I didn't need a pool or child care and I thought I could live without a squat rack. I am now lifting 6 days a week, using the pool and crappy elliptical machines. No other gyms in a reasonable distance offers child care, a squat rack and a pool. Now that I'm not running leg day is my favorite.
No running = more time for gym selfies. I'm smiling on the inside.
