web accountability

Okay...this is scary because I'm good at making plans and starting things but NOT SO GOOD at following through.
Sigh. is my plan to become more active:
I like swimming. Or at least I used to. I have made a plan that I would like to stick out until the end of February. If after that it's not working or whatever, I will change it. But here it is:
I will go swimming twice a week starting next week during the lane swims at the pool down the road from us. It will take me about 5ish minutes to drive there. I found my swim cap and goggles this morning while cleaning out my clothes drawers. It will cost me approximately $30 for the next 6 weeks.
My plan is as follows:
Tuesday evenings: from 8:30-10pm is lane swim. If I can LEAVE the house at about 8:20 I can be there and ready go by the time lane swim begins. I will shower at the pool and then come home.
Thursday mornings (eep! this will be the hard one): Lane swim is from 6:30am-8am. I will wake up, get dressed and leave the house by 6:30am at the latest. I don't actually need to shower that day because Noah has a swim class at 10am so I'll just shower after that class.

Phew. goes nothing. I hope to get back into the swing of things and I figure if I can stick it out until the end of February, my cardio will be back up and I'll actually be ENJOYING it. That will help me to continue.
So this is my plan to become more active. It's also something I can continue until the end of my pregnancy!
So here's to swimming, becoming more active and learning to discipline myself in sticking it out!


  1. good for you vaness. This web friend will keep you accountable :)

  2. YAY swimming! Don't get discouraged at the beginning you'll get fast in no time! The way I started last month was one length front crawl one length back crawl and do 4 lengths as one set and try to set a goal of how many sets you want to do! Just some tips I found helpful when I started back into it :)

  3. Hey thanks Shereen. I think that's a good suggestion. I might switch it up between front, back and breast stroke, though. I'd like to go for 45 minutes, but we'll see. :)


I love hearing from you!
