The start of a new week

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Ok.. so I lost 18 pounds with the lifestyle changed and have maintained it! I know with some exercise, more will melt off.
Yesterday was the start of a new week, so, what better time to start? My sister bought me a jump rope. Even after I spent the last month making excuses as to why jump-roping wouldn't work for me. I have bad knees, a bad back, and thanks to my little 3yo.... a weak bladder.
Well, she didn't listen and bought me one anyway.
Monday, I jump-roped. I had texted her asking if I should count minutes or jumps. She didn't respond, so I decided minutes. I managed 15 minutes! May not seem like a lot.. But, it was a start. And, I sweated! Wait, is that a sword? Oh well.. And, I had to change my pants! LOL! I know, TMI!
She finally texted me back and said to start with 3 reps of 30... Ha!! I did more than that! she also assured my that the bladder will get better with time. I'm not sure she realizes the full impact on a body having a baby does to you. Fingers crossed it does get better.
So, now, for the morning after.. My knees hurt, my ankle is sore, back hurts a little and I have shared with so many people how I peed my pants during jump roping, because, I figure I might as well laugh about it! Oh, I did squeeze in an additional 10 minutes of leisurely bike riding while my little one rode her tricycle around the neighborhood. :)
Now, maybe I will do some yoga when I get home to stretch all this out and to keep on the movement train. Wooo woooo

    You are crazy girl!!!! emoticon You put on some Depends the next time you decide to do all that bouncing! Truthfully though, jumping rope sucks and it is a full body workout. I mean, Rocky jumped rope! You are now among the elite fictional boxing characters with killer bodies!
