Self Love Saturday

The weekend is here and that means a few things but another post about self love! If you haven’t had the change to read last weeks click here to catch up!

So this week was such a huge change for me! It is also what is my self love act for the week even though it will last WAY longer.

Last Monday I started swimming again! I grew up swimming and before any of my leg surgeries I was swimming 3km in under 2 hours. When I tried swimming after my first leg surgery it didn’t go very well for me at all and then lots and LOTS of things happened that made it so I honestly couldn’t swim.

This time things are completely different! I was able to reach my goal after only a few days! My goal was to be able to swim 1km in a week and well I was able to do it by the 4th day! Okay so maybe it doesn’t sound like a lot to you but for me it is a huge thing!

I absolutely LOVE swimming plus it is SO good for you! I just love that it is just me and my mind. I get to spend the time just thinking about what I want and how to get it. I also find that when I think of something that makes me mad or upset I just swim harder to fight it. I won’t lie I have cried after a swim not because it was hard or anything but because something would happen and I want to tell my mom but can’t. If you don’t know why I can’t tell my mom I would suggest you read my post Remembering My Mother.

So with all of that I am so happy to be back in the pool and that I have more plans for my health that I have already started and will be starting more once I get the okay from my surgeon.

  1. Dear Olesya: That is absolutely amazing!! (The surgeons must have done a great job on your leg….haha!) Swimming is the best exercise. It will serve you well for a lifetime. At age 80 all that is left to me is the swimming pool. I can do so many exercises in the water that are no longer available to me on land. Keep up the good work on a regular basis. – Cousin Norma
