The best part about banging out New Year's Resolutions in January is that then they are DONE and you can go on about your life.
Resolution #9 - swim under water without plugging my nose. For some reason I have never in my entire life ever been able to do this. I've had hundreds of people tell me how to do it, but for some reason I never quite got the hang of it. Plus I HATE anything going up my nose.
However today was the day. I was talking to my swim buddy and was explaining how I was trying to learn how to swim under the water without holding my nose. He looked at me like I was a big imbecile and said "Huh? What are you talking about? Just do it. Just go under."
And guess what? That did it. I just went under. And it was totally fine.
And I didn't drown. So whoo hoo!
Now if someone asks me how to swim under the water without holding their nose, I am going to say "Just do it. And also, keep your mouth shut."
I can't wait to go back to the pool!
