Way back into Swimming!

Last year, an opportunity to be sporty opened its door to me. I enjoyed having a healthy lifestyle, joined a swimming competition, and even got featured in Women’s Health Magazine. I think I over-exerted myself while preparing for the competition that I opted to relax my body for a while.

Now, I’m excited as I start my way back into swimming. For now, I needed to bid my fair complexion goodbye and say hello to a sun-tanned skin.

 It was a sunny morning when my Swimming Coach asked me to swim few laps to check if I can still do it correctly. Since Coach Joe needed to focus on his team for an upcoming competition, he asked Coach Alma to train me for a while.

I’m just glad that Coach Alma is as friendly as Coach Joe! (Phew!) She enumerated the many things that we needed to work on. She looked at my movements as I swim and if ever she noticed something wrong, she would correct it immediately.

After the day’s training, I felt good! I’m happy that I am  on my way back to being fit (and fab) 🙂 . I know I have a lot of things to improve on and skills to develop but this is already a good start!

Motivation determines what you do.

Attitude determines how well you do it.”

About Audrey

I am not a typical “girl-next-door”, But I am striving to be a woman of valor. I cannot turn the heads of many people, But I can touch their lives and still be humble. To please my Creator, that is my main goal, To let Him mold me, for me to fit in my role. My other wish is to have a pure soul, And to have a zealous heart like a burning coal. Strength and honor must be my clothing, Purity and honesty, for me is an important thing. To be a woman of principles, that’s what I’m preparing, To make God proud of me as I keep on dazzling. I may not be as perfect as what I want to be, A soldier in the battle that is what I can see. I’ll keep on fighting to solve life’s mystery, To win the battle is the best reward for me!
