Today I wore swim gear and went swimming for the first time in over 25 years!!! It was amazing and I had forgotten just how much I used to enjoy the water. My friends have a spiral slide, and I even went down it twice!! I had so much fun, and even the fact that I posed in swimwear is a milestone in itself, would never have allowed it before! (And yes, if I could have found swimwear that covered more, I would have!! LOL!)

That's awesome! I too, have what I call my "swim burka"--swim capris and a long-sleeved swim shirt I wear over a swimsuit. Whatever gets you out and into the water!

LOL at "swim burka". When I wear my black, long-sleeved rash guard and board shorts, I often wonder if people think I'm a follower of a conservative sect. I actually saw real swim burkas this last Spring Break at the beach and I'm not gonna lie..I thought about it for a second...

That is awesome!! Congratulations! I bet the slide was so fun! Also, swim capris and long sleeve rash guards are how I swim too. Comfortable and anti-sun is the way to go!!

Woo!

The gym where I take fitness classes does water classes too and I've considered it but UGH. I'm not really a water person!

I've been thinking about joining the local community center and using the pool there. Seems like a great way to get in some good exercise and enjoy the pool year round. I have to look into the cost and see if it's something I can do!

If you have a local community college, it might have good options too. I've been really happy with the fitness classes that mine offers - especially since it has a group exercise membership program. For me, it works out to something like $2 per class. Can't beat that :D
