Jumping rope is an activity that I’m not good at.
When I was a kid I could barely get through regular rope jumping. The fancy double dutch, skipping, twisting and turning I left for the experienced jumpers. Shying away from jumping contests kept me from being the joke of the day—the year. Turning the rope for someone else was the best that I could do.
This time in my life jumping rope would be a fitness tool rather than a contest. I envision my heart rate escalating at the touch of the rope. I can see myself caught up and tangled up in the rope trying to find a way out.
I’m going to change the channel that I see myself communicating with the jump rope. The new picture is me successfully mastering it to help me on my fitness journey.
How are you at jumping rope?

oh me too me too!! I was the rope turner! I watched mesmerized while other girls did all the cool stuff. My turn comes and I trip on the rope.
I can jump rope by myself but it isn’t very fun.

We rope turners were the greatest rope turners in the world and no one can take that away from us.
LOL you have a great attitude. I always felt like I wasn’t doing THAT right either.
Jumping rope use to be one of my favorite things to do. I think they invented a bunch of new moves in the past half-century and now when it comes to jumping rope my favorite thing to do is look and marvel!
The last time I did any rope related things was pretend rope jumping. I was jumping and turning my hands like a rope is in it. That’s about as good as it gets. [?]
This is the first Jump Rope entry I’ve seen! It’s really energetic. I’m trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m going to look your blog up.
Thanks for the memory. Jumping rope was definitely not my forte. At my age now, the thought of jumping rope is more laughable because I don’t have time any more.
I wasn’t a big jump roper, but I loved double dutch!
I was fasinated with how it all worked. It was great to watch. I would have been a tangled mess. So to save face I became a turner. Thanks for stopping by.

Sweetopia51 thanks for visiting my blog and thinking it was good enough to reblog. I’m continuing my journey to totally unzip this cover-up of extra weight and let the real me come forth.
Good morning, Emmalmoore that’s the way I feel as well, I want to let the real me come out, right now I as so uncomfortable in my own body that I just want to close up in my apartment forever until all of the fat falls off. I want to wish you much success in your journey, and I am definitely going to be visiting your blog again, if you don’t mine. 🙂
