They learned this jump rope trick called the wheel and are now doing "around the world" where you switch places. This trick is hard b/c if you watch them jump their arms are going in a swimming motion so that the ropes are alternating.
They learned that in one PE class period today. I got them started on the wheel and they just went with it!! I am so incredibly blessed with my college student who still competes competitively and is volunteering to help our team. I could have never taught them that more complicated trick.
Today's jump rope team practice went really well. We continued working on our routine today and it's starting to come together. We already have a set performance at a college basketball half time show (yay!) in January and have 2 other prospects. I know every teacher in this world talks about how incredible their students are. But mine really are that good. They are invested in this as am I.

For a chunk of time, I am a little lonely. If I need to talk to someone I have my husband and my mom. I have never had "that friend" that you could just call and talk to or go and hang out with. With my outer appearance, I have a successful job, tall, blonde, attractive (my husband says at least), and have a good life. On the inside at times , I feel I am still the insecure 15 year old teenager who moved here and didn't know a soul and didn't open up to a lot of people b/c I didn't think people would like me.
In some ways, my insecurity gets the best of me. I don't know if I am worthy of having a friend b/c I am 29 years old and haven't had one like that before, ever. There are people that I am close to, like a couple of my co-workers, some of the girls that I am in the same church group with, etc. So I might hang out with the church gals when we all get together as couple or for "girls night out," I sit with coworkers in the teachers lounge at lunch and chat with them, but they don't call me to say "Hey, lets go to the mall" or "Do you want to catch a movie?" and I don't know why which fuels the insecurity b/c I wonder what the hell is wrong with me. Maybe they think I am too busy with training or something? I am not the one to call people, b/c I don't want to bother them. I guess that is just my personality.
During the school day, my day is so loud. Having 70+ kids at a time in a gym does not make for a quiet work environment which I have excepted and for the most part enjoy. Sometimes it sucks being lonely, but sometimes I like being by myself in my own thoughts b/c of the quietness. I think I need to find a balance with that. How do I put myself out there?
Am I weird?

7/31/11- The dreaded re-starting point
168.0 lbs (-.8 lbs)
35 chest (no change)
28.5 waist (-.5 inch)
34.5 hips (no change)
20 thigh (-.5 inch)
14.5 calf (no change)
11.5 arm (no change)
Got almost a 1 pound loss! I am getting pretty lean now. Jay looked at me standing on the scale this morning and goes "You are getting skinny. Like skinny, skinny!" I am going to see if I can get to 165, but I don't know if it will happen. I may get there for biggest loser at school, but I definitely want to stay in the upper 160's-lower 170's.
The 12 mile long run went really well. I can't believe how well it went. Two weeks ago I did a 10 mile long run and ended up at a 12:10 pace per mile and I was happy with that. I ran with Jason again yesterday morning and ended up at a 11:39 per mile pace. I can't beleive it! About the last three miles he took off and pulled away with me. I totally get that b/c he is a faster runner than me. Those last three miles I held my own. I finished the last three at 11:38, 11:34, and 11:50. The last mile was tough b/c I was running into the wind and well, it was the last mile!
Jason was waiting for me to finish when a couple of pretty girls run by and they hit on him!! They made a comment like "Wow, you are a really good runner," He said "I don't know if I consider myself to be a good runner, but I am training for my first marathon." They said was "Well we can tell that you run a lot."
Don't worry girls...his wife of almost 7 years is about 6 inches taller than you, blonde, and has a "skinny-skinny" body. You are no competition ;o)
Sidenote: Jason starts his trial medication for Multiple Sclerosis tomorrow. Not sure how he is going to react to it, but hoping it goes well.
