Nadine is a good swimmer. She swims on almost every day of the week during the summer. She swims on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. She also swims on the weekend on Saturday and Sunday. During the winter, she doesn't swim every day, but she still swims a lot. Why does she swim so much? She hopes to compete in the Olympics someday.

Nadine takes good care of her body. She exercises every day and she eats healthy food. She eats a lot of fruit and vegetables, and she avoids food that is unhealthy. She never eats junk food, but sometimes she has a hamburger and french fries for lunch. She usually makes healthy choices when it comes to eating.
