Slimming Soup

Today the kids and I put on our slimming soups {swimming suits to my 3 year old} and we headed to the pool!!! My oldest is turning 7 on Friday {I can't believe it}! So we met my family for a little PARTY!! My brother & his wife live in a condo that has a club house with a pool so we can go swimming for FREE!! Perfect for a family party but also a great way to sneak in a little workout!

Swimming is a FANTASTIC workout!! Before the rest of the family arrived I swam a few laps; oh that felt GOOD!!! Of course the kids wanted a SHARK RIDE {as if the laps themselves aren't tiring enough}! So I swam a few laps with each kid on my back. Oh man! That was a workout!! I wish I could have swam MORE but baby needed me. I'm going to have to make it a point to go swimming more often. More importantly though I'll have to make sure that I have my husband with me so we can swap being in charge of the kids and working out.

I'm definately no Michael Phelps {my 5 year old's favorite athlete} but I LOVE swimming. It's actually been a REALLY long time since I've been but I was reminded today what a great time it is. I'm DEFINATELY going to do more of this!!!
