Getting into the Swim of Things
Today was my swim day. I honestly forgot how much I adore swimming. It's so freeing. Nothing hurts while I'm swimming. (Click HERE and HERE to see the benefits of swimming on joints)
It's a total body workout without the feel of a total body workout (until you get out of the pool and your legs feel like jelly.) Swimming 1 mile is the equivalent of running 4 miles! Don't ask me how fast because I don't know. I managed to do over a mile in under an hour. That beats my normal time by about 30 minutes!
According to SparkPeople.com my 50 minutes of swimming burned about 404 calories. I paired that with my healthy dinner of catfish, green beans and a sweet potato. It was a perfect day. (Besides the fact that it decided to turn cold today.)
Some days I wish that my future job let me work in the pool all day but, I'm happy at the gym, and I have no plans on changing my career plans.
I'll be giving you guys a new recipe soon. Also a cookbook and diet book review coming in a few days. It's been a busy few days and I have loads of info for y'all.
Do you like to swim? Do you prefer to be in the gym, or in the pool?
Prompt : How would you start saving the world if you woke up tomorrow with superhuman powers?
Answer: I'd have to give the world healthy food and rid it of the bad food. (Sorry I'm on a health kick)
