I’m happy to report that I’ve been working out a lot since re-joining 24 Hour Fitness. I’m actually finding myself enjoying it—I like the variety of classes and options I’ve got there, and the fact that I can workout BEFORE work. Yes, it’s early and that sucks, but…I am too tired to out and out hate cardio if I am barely awake for it, right?
The other big thing that I’m a huge fan of is the lap swimming pool. I have absolutely loved swimming since I was a child. Maybe it was the novelty of getting to swim since we didn’t have a pool, or the fact that water remains one of the most calming things in the world to me, but swimming laps is easily one of my favorite types of cardio.
That being said, swimming requires much gear. See, I hate getting chlorinated water in my eyes and looking coked out for the rest of the day. Also, I have a disgusting amount of thick curly hair that needs restraining while swimming. Water in my ears is easily up there with vomiting for me—I HATE having it make me all cloggy, and then feeling like it’s just dripping into my throat? UGH.
With those complaints in mind, I present to you:
Not visible: HOT ORANGE earplugs
OK, so the facial expression was intentional. I was trying to look dumb. But the overgrown bug look? Thanks to the goggles and sexy swim cap.
I know I look ridiculous, but that half an hour spent soaring through the water is one of the most peaceful parts of my day. So, it’s worth it.
