Tue: 32 laps

I'm starting Jan out well. Still doing the swimming. I'm up to 32 laps which is 800 meters. I think I'm going to stick with that distance all this month and just work on trying to swim in continuously instead of stopping every 3-4 laps to catch my breath.

I also decided to give up on the walking on the treadmill. It is soooooo boring. I'd much rather take walks with the dog. In it's place I have decided that I'm going to start weight training. My DH trains in Olympic Weightlifting so he wrote out an exercise plan for the month and I started it yesterday. My legs are ridiculously sore today, but I feel like I've accomplished something.

Mauv: Way to go, walking on New Year's Day. I was such a couch potato.

MD: The aqua class sounds great. I've always been interested in those, but at my gym they only offer them in the middle of the day when I'm at work.

I'm starting to really get into the habit of going to the gym. It's becoming routine, which is what it's going to have to be with me if I'm going to stick to it. The yoga class on the weekend is a nice change of pace too - someday I'll actually be able do everything.
