Skipping Day 12 of Janathon

Now truthfully, how many of you thought I’d slacked off for a day!?! Hmmmm… tsk tsk!!!

Well I was meant to be going for a run but this has been rescheduled for Wednesday so what did I actually do? I found my skipping rope. Now as a kid I’d spend loads of time just skipping, doing various ‘tricks’ and rhymes – but I can honestly say the 10 minutes I did of skipping today hurt! My heart beat was raised and I broke out in a sweat.

It was also humorous as I skipped inside due to the lovely seasonal weather of rain so I had to shorten the rope so it didn’t hit the ceiling and so this in turn meant I had to skip with my head tilted forward so I didn’t catch myself – which I can assure you stings as the ‘rope’ is made of plastic and if it whips you – you know about it!!!

I also spent some time on Wii Fit plus – ensuring I made 30mins worth of exercise!

Aerobic Exercise
Super Hula Hooping – serious fail on that one!

Rhythmic Boxing Super Advanced

Balance Games

Training Plus
Rhythmic Kung Fu

Well all in all not a bad evening of exercise! Think the skipping will help for my prep for Sunday! I’m also trying to make sure I drink plenty of water and I’m cutting down on the amount of wheat and dairy I’m eating this week – well at least I’m trying too! 😜
