Jumping Rope

I just got a new jump rope and I'm having so much fun with it. It's made by Bodyfit/Sports Authority and it has a little meter on the handle that keeps time, counts jumps, and calculates calories. All that for $20! And that was the most expensive jump rope they had at the store! The regular ones cost only about $6. Not bad for a serious kick-your-butt piece of exercise equipment and all around bringer-of-fun.
Can you remember when you were a kid and you actually jumped rope just for fun? Well, even if you were too busy playing Super Mario Brothers and didn't jump rope for fun, you should give it a try now. It's not just good for blasting calories to smithereens and cardiovascular fitness, it's great for brain fitness, too. The coordination required will stimulate all kinds of new synapses and dendrites, stuff like that, to form in your brain. All brains love new dendrites. Make yours happy today!


  1. Heheh, you know, when we see images of you (paintings or otherwise) I think the adjectives that usually come to mind are things like "Gorgeous" "sexy" "strong" "smart" "tough" "talented" "healthy" etc. Now we're going to have to add "cute" to that list! ;-)

    Now I'm going to go look up "dendrites".

  2. Aw shucks, Jen! You sure know how to flatter a girl!

  3. I didn't jump with jump rope for about 10 years, but not so long long ago I DID! It was a lot of fun - mostly for those who whatched me jumping(:

  4. Thanks, Gabriela!
    And Edward, it's so nice of you to entertain your friends with your jump roping skills. Just tell them that they shouldn't only be watching, they should be jumping!
