Guess where I was at 5:30 am this morning? No, go ahead guess. OK, I'll just tell you. I was at the Y in the pool at 5:30 am. Yes, by the time I am usually hitting the first snooze button I had been swimming for an hour, 2500 yards. I am so hard core. Let's hope this was not an isolated incident.

I got to use my brand new speedo that I bought on e-bay last month.
Purple, pretty! It's a little more grandma-cut than my old suit, with a higher back and it has foam cups in the liner, but it does have the advantage of slimming the waist and hiding my back fat (yes I have back fat, which is why I was in the pool at such an ungodly hour).

Also, I was at my desk a full 15 minutes early today. It's like a total stranger switched places with me in my sleep. But I like her. I hope she sticks around.

Happy Humpday!

I need to get in the pool at 5:30... but I'm honest enough with myself that I know that will never happen (not a good morning workout person) however, I'm starting lunch workouts back up as soon as we settle this case! woohoo!

Just FYI - I managed to get up and swim again this morning. I need some new goggles in a bad way. One pair leaves marks around my eyes for a whole day and the other gives me a headache.

Way to go everyone with the working it out! If I can manage two morning swims a week and a work out or two on the weekends I will be mucho happy with myself.

Hi! Thanks for commenting on my journal. :) Your page is adorable.

Good job on the swimming at the butt-crack of dawn! No matter how hard I try, I cannot make myself get up and go to the gym in the morning- I always have to go at night. You are an inspiration. ;)
