Swimming, Life, and Other Stuff!

Carpets, Girl Cave, and Christian Scientists!

Rate this Entry
I took today off swimming. I worked hard 5 days in a row; shoulders ached last night in bed, so it was a great call!
I was going to run tonight but I had my oldest daughter (Lindsay) over to clean the carpets in my house and as she finished we had a glass of La Crema together. (It's weird when your kids are old enough to drink with you)
I'm really not a lush, alcoholic, (or creeper) but I am on vacation so if I want a glass of wine at 4 pm I'll do it!

The "girl cave" is coming along quite well. After price shopping I decided to use "only" stuff I already have or can purchase at a garage sale.
I had an older denim couch in my garage that I was saving for anyone who wanted it. I washed it up and placed it in the cave. I sewed up some nifty accent pillows with some leftover quilting fabric I already had. I'm going to go to some garage sales Thurs. and Fri. to find a craft/sewing type table (hopefully) to set up. (I may have to get this at IKEA, but they're pretty cheap) I had an old rug I cleaned up too! I really need a flat screen for the wall; I will probably have to buy that at an electronics store. I think I can get one of lesser quality that would be alright for around $500.00. I can't wait to go in there and read, vegitate, and get happy!

On a previous blog which I titled "I should be a Christian Scientist" I never really explained why I felt that way. I think I was explaining why I felt motivated to go to the pool and workout hard, swim in meets, and blog. (I am not or never have been a world class swimmer). I would love to be a #1 ranked swimmer (I am kind of a geek) and I will always work hard to be as good as I can be, but bottom line I just have no talent.
Anyways.....I should be a Christian Scientist because I hate to go to the Doctor! I rarely go. Most Physicians are totally about sickness and really never delve into wellness(not getting sick!).
My goal is to try to remain medicine-free as long as possible! Swimming seems to help the mental, cardio, and keep blood lipid profiles in healthy check too! I would much rather swim hard 8 hours a week than take prescribed to me by a professional who doesn't seem to understand the value of raising the heart rate, sweating, and feel'in a little pain.
"If you don't take care of your body where will you live?"
Sorry to ramble about non-workout type things but I felt like I had to straighten up statements from my previous blogs.

    La Crema Pinot Noir?! That is a fav of mine.

    Does a girl cave mean that it has a cosmo dispenser instead of a tap?

    I just assumed the Christian Scientist comment was over my head, and now that you explained it, I know I was right.

    Girl Cave, sounds like some show on Lifetime, Oxygen, or WE networks.

    I do like those channels for mindless tv watching!

    I like La Crema too!

    I can't stand going to the doctor either and I'm quite bad about it. Except for my ART doc. I love him and it's only 30 minutes.

    What's wrong with being a geek? People don't always think I am, but really, I'm quite geeky about many things (except technology, not so good there).

    You might prefer to see an Osteopath (DO). It's a medical doctorate degree like an MD, but with more of a holistic approach.

    Good point knelson, I should try that.
    I don't mean to bash Doctors, especially specialist's in various fields like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc. They can't control people who are getting these diseases, and they do provide treatment and lengthen the lives of those trying to live with these problems. I just think more needs to be done to try to prevent these things from day 1.

    It would be awesome to have Cosmo's on tap and "Sex in the City" playing 24/7 in the girl cave!
    I heard they are taping another sequal to the "Sex in the City" movie this September! I am psyched!
