happy easter everyone!

i unfortunately didn't go to church this morning as i was so sick yesterday my parents decided it would be better not to wake me as today church was at 7am *eeep* still not totally up to par but better as at least now i have the energy to get out of bed and actually eat something. okay so it was ice cream for breakfast but my throat is still really sore!

when i was little my mum always got me a gift for easter like a dress, a fishing rod, or a pogo ball. when i got older it was just some chocolate (no issues there, yum) but this year she bought me a skipping rope! i mentioned earlier this month that i felt like skipping, this urge lasted for an entire week not just a random thought, and she got me one *w00t*

did you know that they dont make jump ropes for someone my height? they have short ones for kids and long ones for adults but none for the people in between. she got me a kiddie one since they were at the dollar store and closer to my length, i just have to hold on at the end of the handles... and i need a LOT of practice! i kept getting the rope caught between my toes dont ask me how *L0L*

after about five minutes of jumping i was about to have an asthma attack, i was wheezing and my heart rate was psycho. guess i'll have to take my puffers before doing that, even tho i never had to as a kid. i guess a good indicator as to improvement to my health is when i can do it no problem without taking my puffer right?

i did my weigh in yesterday and i was down to 110lbs and 31.5 inches around my belly button. i think that weight will go right back up to 112lbs as soon as i eat solid food as i was sick yesterday and had nothing but ice cream and Popsicles to soothe my throat. but seeing as i've been jumping between those couple pounds anyways i'm going to accept it as accurate for this week :0P

off to watch judy garland and fred astaire!

    Sorry to hear that you are sick. I have asthma, too. Just remember if "Your not breathing, nothing else matters" so you just have to respect your health conditions and work out when you are able too. Ask your doctor next visit or call the nurse and they can advise you. Sometimes I can use my inhalers before exercise and that works, but other times, like when I have bronchitis, then I just have to skip it because I start coughing and wheezing when I get overheated. Good luck to you on getting control of your asthma. It can be such a bummer, but I am so thankful for the inhalers!

    Oh hey, about the jump rope. See if you can push the jump rope through one of the plastic handles. Tie a knot in that end and make it the length that you want, pull it back though the plastic handle and voila, the perfect length for you.
    If that description is as clear as mud, e-mail me and I will try to describe it more clearly.---Deanie---
