Jump Rope

I’m throwing way back to jumping rope as a kid today.  I loved jumping rope – I didn’t need anyone else to play and for a kid with OCD tendencies, I loved seeing how many jumps I could go before I missed.

My new jump rope

My trainer made us jump rope in kickboxing class a couple weeks ago – and I seem to be hooked again.  I just bought a jump rope and I’m loving it!  I’m jumping in the garage so I don’t freak out the neighbors but it’s still big fun.  Note –  I learned the hard way to wear shoes since the rope is covered with little plastic “tubes” and they HURT when you land on them!

Bonus?  All the jumping may help me with my weight!  Want to try?  Get your own rope and start jumping!  Need a little more motivation?  Check this out:
