I can always have a squirt gun when I go swimming. I clasp my hands underwater and create a vacuum, then I open them slowly, still clasped until I am cupping a good portion of water. I bring it out and then squeeze my hands back into a full clasp as water squirts out my palm just under my pinkies through a hole in the crack between my hands. They all try it. I remember trying and trying when I was shown one summer in the pool. I can really get some distance. It is so rejuvenating to be with children.
We put the pool under our trees so it was not always in direct sun. I have had my fair share of sun in life in the pool and on the tennis court. Nobody likes to burn. We thoroughly screen the kids. They have a new spray on. It gets used up fast though. I was wondering if I was born before sunscreen. I looked it up in the wiki and NO. It was conceived by a Swiss chemistry student in 1938, who had got sunburn mountain climbing but commercial sunscreen only came out in the '40's as "Coppertone Cream". Coppertone was red vet petroleum (a vaseline like substance), cocoa butter and coconut oil and was conceived by a WWII airman and pharmacist to protect the soldiers [source].
Keep strong on this holiday, bloggies.
Keeping focused and hydrated. Looking forward to my weigh in. Kept my sodium low so no water retention.
I saw a really motivational video on a blog called "Undercover Dieting". from Germany, I think but the blog is in English. This blogger only has 4 followers. Maybe you can show some support.
