Just keep swimming....

I'm so happy that I swam 3 times this week in the pool at my local gym. It felt so good to get back into the pool, after I did my first lane I realized that I really can't swim for long periods of time. I'm going to have to work on my stamina but I already feel my arms and legs getting more toned.. My only issue is keeping my textured hair from getting damaged and the time it takes before and after pool time to get back into the swing of my daily grind.  I'll shoot for swimming at least 2 times a week in addition to my other cardio pursuits.. I haven't done any other cardio this week.  I forgot I did do WATP 2miles on Monday. So I got 4 days of cardio in this week! I surprised myself.

I did finally weigh in and I came in at 12.8 lbs down! I was really worried I had gained I believe now I'm back to my recent lowest..I had a bad, bad eating day yesterday but I've had a pretty good one so far today. Problem is that the people I go to swim with like to eat out after swimming and that usually leads to chitpotle, penn station, indian food buffet, etc.. Penn Station-- I shouldn't be eating in the first place. Chitpole (veggie burrito bowl with a wee bit of rice heavy beans and fajita veggies) isn't bad every once in a while, but it has soo much sodium! Indian food buffet don't even get me started--expensive and I end up eating ALOT of rice and fried pakoras..

I'm going to hit up a new TJ Maxx store opening in my area, Rossford, Ohio, tomorrow. Wish me luck! I've been getting alittle outta control with the spending, I need to reign it in and stop buying random crap but there are things that I'm on the constant lookout for such as thick 500 thread count sheets, casual skirts for the summer because i look horrid in shorts..

woohoo! go you! and i wish you the world of luck at tj maxx. oh, that place.

i am looking out for bedding stuff for summer. i actually got my winter bed stuff at tj maxx a few years ago. i kind of like the liberty of london bedding (but mostly the pillows and house stuff and clothes, lol) at target.

and casual skirts sound awesome! i am thinking of going that route this summer myself?! it's something i've never really done, but it might do my body good. i, too, hate how i look in shorts, and i never thought about skirts, so thanks for the tip!!

Girl, I ended upo buying some things (that I don't regret) but I had to wait in line for 1hr then when i got to the front of the line I realized that i left my wallet at home!! (15 miles away).

I found out that i like the summer skirt thing when it was unbearably hot one summer and I couldn't wear jeans because it was so, so i threw on a skirt and a loose tank and called it a day. I felt so much better..
