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.

Off Tomorrow – 3 Day Weekend!

No, my office is not closed, but I will be taking the day off. I hope that the day is sunny and we can go to the beach. If not, my little one and I plan on painting eggs.

Didn’t do the gym yesterday :-(  My coworkers and I went out to celebrate winning a $20M job for our company. I tried to eat healthy – but don’t think the Shrimp and Lobster chowder is considered diet food. Today I won’t be able to do the gym, but plan on running after work. Running outside is really kicking my butt….so I plan on running outside as much as I can even though these hot days really make me want to run on the treadmill with the A/C on high!

I watched Joe from the Marathon Show the other day while he ran and had it televised. I jumped on and off and I actually won Sweaty Bands! Can’t wait to get them – I have long hair and usually just put it in a low ponytail, but I have all these short broken hair in the front that I hope this will help keep away from my face and stay in place. Will defintely post to let you know how they worked for me.
