Learning to Jump Rope Again

I picked up a $2 jump rope at Walmart this weekend – and no it wasn’t from the kids section!  Decided to use it today at lunchtime in the gym. What a SPAZ I am!  I was laughing so hard at myself – thought I was going to have an accident.  Seriously – how hard is it to jump a rope?  I see my 9 year old do it all day long!  Well, I had to start with baby steps….first doing two step skips – about 5 minutes later I was able to jump with both feet at the same time.  Then it took another 10 minutes to not get tangled in the rope for more than 5 jumps.  However – I did get a good cardio workout, which was my goal.  Once I get a little better I may actually buy a better rope.

Last night I had to cook dinner – James had to work the late shift, so he left some cutlets ready to cook.  In the mail was my Sweaty Bands!!!  The ones I won on The Marathon Show.  Aren’t they GORGEOUS?  I brought one in to work today to try out.  Will let you know how they work.
