Trying out some double unders

Had fun with the jump rope over the weekend and spent some time trying out the DUs. Can't do more than 2 in a row yet, but pleased to get that far and to be able to revert to regular jumps without a hitch. My son thinks the DUs are hilarious (or more probably that I look hilarious trying to do them), and he was constantly egging me on to do more. Problem is, they are hard! Really got the heart pumping and worked up a good sweat.
The other exercises are good, but the extended sets are a good challenge. Tried pushing the bicep and tricep exercises to failure - ouch! Actually thought my arms had fallen off there for a minute.
This week looks tough with upcoming Thanksgiving temptations on the horizon, but I know we will all keep each other honest. And Christmas is just around the corner with a whole new round of treats. This year will be interesting with the new approach to eating we have learned. No more eating to the point of illness - that is something I will not miss!
