Gareth came home from the gym on Monday with a bunch of flowers and the swimming pool timetable. A strange kind of romantic gesture you might think, but I’ve been saying recently how I used to really love swimming (I even swam in the sea in Greece!) and I wish I was making the effort to do more of it.
So on Wednesday, when he went off to the gym (as he does three times a week – way to make me feel bad!) I packed my galaxy swimsuit and trotted off behind him. I’m not going to lie, I was nervous as hell. Those stupid little voices about how I look in a swimsuit wouldn’t give over.
But I did it.
And I’m super proud of myself.
I also felt great afterwards. As someone who usually avoids exercise at all costs, I was genuinely surprised how good my body felt after. My plan is to swim once a week (at least to begin with) so fingers crossed I can keep it up! Thank you husband for pushing me to get off my computer, to banish my insecurities and to jump in the pool again.
