In response to Brooke's walks

In response to Brooke's walks:

Started jumping rope since I can't seem to get myself out of bed without knowing people are waiting for me. I keep tripping over the dang thing and can't really get a sweat going since I get tied up every 10th jump. It's giving me shin splints, too. Kind of pathetic, huh?

good news: lost all the weight I gained over the sedentary summer.

bad news: no longer fit fat jeans or skinny jeans so I'm either showing a ton of crack or can barely breathe.

More bad news: No way I'm finding jeans here in skinnyville. I'm a freaking Amazon. They sell clothes for full grown women that almost fit M. She's 5.

Better news: Found a cute pair of shoes that fit if I suck in my feet. J says that means they don't fit. I think it means there's hope.


  1. While on my mission, I found a jump rope in our apartment and tried it for a while. (Dinner appointments had made me rather pudgy) My results were about the same as yours. How about I fly to Japan and go walking with you? And I'll bring you some jeans that fit while I'm at it. And if wishes were horses, I'd have a ranch! Oh well.

  2. That was funny! I can totally relate to the Amazon thing, only I live here in the US, so what does that say when they don't usually carry shoes big enough for me? Sadly, my daughter has inherited the same trait. I just bought her size 2 shoes. I love to read what you guys are up to!
