Today was my first day and I lasted 3 min. I've had my jump rope for over a year but never used it, thinking it wasn't enough of a work out. Boy was I wrong!!!!! I have a bad leg so it was more of a challenge then I expected. But together we will all be jumping rope like it's nobodies business!!!!

all it takes is one step to start your journey

But on Friday...Did 100 WooHoo! (not non stop)

But, I am working on it!

I have the same problems. I am always ashamed to post my jumps because I can't jump for long periods of time. I just do what I can.

Today I will be and do the best that I can. I will not make excuses for the things that I are within my control. And for those that are not, I will learn to improvise. ~YANDI

I'm with you. I am not in great shape but still try. I jumprope for a few days then stop for a few then go back at it. My legs get very sore as well as my arms.

emoticon Hi! I'm a 27 year old single mom. I work and am going to school full time to get a Masters in Nursing. So I'm a little strapped for time/exercise ideas. Because I'm a single mom and my schedule is killer, my only real exercise option is something at home. So I bought a jump rope thinking it would be a quick easy way to get back in shape. After my first jumping session, I think that I was right except for the 'easy' part. Apparently I need leg muscles to keep jumping for more than 2 minutes. Who knew? :) So here I am, looking for some jumping buddies who might be having the same issues that I am. I'm not looking to lose any weight, I just want to get healthy again and exercise is the only thing that seems to clear my head.

So here's to jumping rope and building some leg muscles! Yay!
