Today is Tuesday. I woke up with it being Wednesday in my head. It was 9 a.m. before I realized I was two hours late taking my doggies in for their Baths and Doggie Daycare atTaylor Crossing Animal Hospital. YIKES!
Immediately I called the front desk to see if it was still okay to bring them in and was so pleased to know they were fine with my airhead moment.
It was so wonderful to be able to keep the appointments! I live for my “Mom’s Day Out” once a month. My doggies come back so fresh and clean and happy and exhausted from their puppy playtimes.
And because they are getting older, the effects of TCAH Daycare last through the next day once they are home. It is like a two day break for the price of one.
Listening to Diamond and Silk on Facebook Live talking about a lot of different things. Love those Ladies. They preach it and teach it and they live it. They are all about having the conversation. Catch them on Facebook and Twitter and everywhere! Be sure to check out their merchandise too.

Oh my gosh. Years ago, like way more than twenty, I could jump rope fairly well. I could one foot, two foot, run up and downhill while jumping, criss-cross, boxer step, and alternate feet jumping, heel touch, jack jump, and sissor jump too. Now, I am happy to just keep the rope turning after years of inactivity.
In 2014, when I started at 26.2 CrossFit, jumping ropewell again became my goal. Here I am four years later and I still stink at it, in my mind. What is worse is I still have never done a proper double under. Honestly, I am happy if I can string 30 consecutive jumps together with a speed rope. Granted, I had three, yes 1 – 2 – 3, foot injuries this year so that has slowed my progress down but that is no excuse.
This year I discovered CrossRope. Picking up the Limited Edition Heavy Set and falling in love with it (having not yet jumped with Brunhilda – rolling my eyes) I ordered the complete serious of ropes with an extra set of handles. And finally, over all of my injuries, I have made it through this, my first Jump Rope Performance Challenge, except for….
