I was a good girl this morning and jumped (okay, crawled) out of bed at 4:45 this morning, squeezed into my swimsuit and headed out to the pool. Because of all the rain, the pool was nice and refreshing (82 degrees), which is so nice seeing as it is usually on the warm side (86 degrees) due to the heat. It took me a while to warm up/wake up, but I got into my groove and did about a mile and a half in 50 min before I had to head home to start my day. It felt good to get that out of the way for the day, especially since it looks like rain again, but I'm all tired out now. Me thinks it may be an early night again tonight!
Another thing I've started to add to my exercise routines is jumping rope. Last weekend, I was in Target and decided to pick one up. I'm sure we all remember fondly jumping rope as kids. I also did a lot of jump rope moves in volleyball. So, with my all skill and expertise, this should be a breeze, right? Hahaha....not so much. I felt like I was jumping with a 20 pound sack on my back. Guess gravity got a little heavier over the years! So, I managed about 7 minutes before I called it quits. I will be happy to get 10 minutes down the road. It's another little exercise I'm adding on the off days I don't do the hula hoop. The best part of both these exercises is that Wilson is terrified of both and thinks I'm being attacked, so he gets close to help me and then chickens out, backs up and barks. What a fruit loop!
Well, I'm off to straighten up the house and find something productive to do. Reading sounds pretty productive to me. Toodles!
