I have started to think about which missions I am going to work on starting in July. I started to look into how to complete Mission #21: learn to swim. I went ahead and bought a swimsuit. Not just any swimsuit, but a cute sporty one that I can learn to swim in and then start training in. I have even shopped around for swimming lessons and found a pretty good deal at the Y. I shouldn’t be too surprised but a lot of the classes out there are geared towards little ones. I guess they are easier to teach, and save when panicked.
Friends have often offered to teach me but it never worked. Life interrupted and I never learned. But now I’m determined and looking forward to a new activity to do. Man, I wonder what the chlorine is going to do to my hair? Best not to think about it.
Mission #9: Give up sweets for 40 days and 40 nights. I’m a former Catholic that practiced Lent to lose weight. Seriously. I called it my Diet for Jesus. It worked. I gave up sweets for 40 days and 40 nights and it made a huge difference on my weight loss. The bad thing once you start eating the sugar again you’re like a crack fiend looking for the next fix. This time I am looking to discover some insight to my “dependency” to the sugar/smack. I’m hoping that after I’m done I’ll be lighter on my toes and have a better relationship with all things sweet.
