3rd May 2012
I know i havnt been posting much lately just had been a lil busy with family and farmville (A) but i have sumthing amazing to share, for all the times i had been cursing my self to start a regular exercise, to maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep my weight in check, i failed miserably after 2 days of workout, i could so not carry it on for a longer time. No matter how many times i thought i will do my step jogging, since its better then doing nothing. but i would do it for 2/3 days n then forget for 5 days resulting in a bad muscle shape. I had also been thinking to start swimming for 2 years now but i just never really went.
So on 3rd May thursday while i was visiting my dad, i finally picked up a friend of mine and went to the club near dad’s place who allow non members to swim with a minimal per day fee for an hour, it sounded very reasonable adn suitable to me that i dont have to keep going every day, I only pay as i go.
As i parked the car in their parking lot, i felt a little nervouse as i was about to be swimming after almost 20 years. My friend K sat on the chairs while i went to change and shower. walkin towards the pool i kept looking at the water amd decided i should first step in the shallow water and see how it goes, so i climbs the steps, felt the water welcome me, then i did my breathing exercise. it was sad coz i realized i have lost my strength and the ability to control my breath for long. I did the exercise where i was holding on to the side of the pool and let my body float on water while i hold my breath. once i felt i was comfortable with that i tried the floating, only did it like 5/6 steps away from the side and i had to stop for a breath. i was litereally taking baby steps no matter how much i wanted to swim lengths freely like i did way back when i used to swim, Lets just say i was still a kid then so it has to be more then 20 years. 🙂 after 30 minutes passed, i was floating, doing the frog stroke, tried a lil freestyle and back stroke. by 50 minutes of session i was much more comfortable and was actually enjoying the water (I always had). I told my friend that next time she should try it too, it will b fun. Finally it was time off, i got outta pool, showered n changed, and went to dad’s with K. Later in the evening my hubby came, we dropped K at her place and i came home with my hubby.
I am soooo glad that i finally took that one step and went for the swim coz now i plan to go if not more atleast twice a week. and i think that should b good enough along with my jogs and walks and green tea and more fruits intake 🙂 also i am feeling good, no doubts in the morning my body was hurting like any thing, my muscles were so hard it was hard to move, even the muscles in my back feel workedup, which is good coz no matter what exercise i did, i could never make the muscles of my back enjoy the effects. Now i am more sure that i wanna swim twice a week. I just hope i continue it and not quit in the middle.
So, Over all Yup had a great thursday and felt soo amazing and exhilarating 🙂
Have you ever tried to do something you had been meaning to do for long? if yes, how did you feel? 🙂
