It is wet in here

Well after a 3 month hiatus from the pool, i made my way back to Pioneer Pool this afternoon to take a dip.
I gingerly go in  the water thinking 2 or three laps and I am done as I am in such an awful physical state. Oh my golly gosh, I got in the water donned my cap and goggles and proceeded to swim 500 metres (20 laps) freestyle without stopping, YAYAYAYAYAY. I then did some kick board with fins and pool jogging as well as another 200 freestyle with fins. Yes it is wet in here, but I feel frightfully at home where it is wet, so you will be seeing in the pool a lot more now.

Before hitting the pool today I did the shopping and headed over to Lyttelton for the Farmers Market, as a healthy eating and reduction in sugar and processed food is on the agenda during the 20 week challenge and beyond. Loaded up on kale, spinach  beans, apples, chicken stock, coconut oil and flakes all part of my new healthy eating regime. So if anyone has tips on how to use and cook Kale please share with me.
For those of you on the 20 week challenge following this blog, maybe we can plan a Saturday excursion to Lyttelton Farmers markets as  part of the lifestyle challenge, what do you think??
