Today, for the first time in my life I decided to face my fear of jumping rope. In my workout room I have one jump rope that I got from my husband in 2011. I used it once for 20 seconds and I could not jump. I was frustrated the most because everyone can jump rope except me. When I was a teacher in Brazil my student always tried push me to do it and i always said no mostly because i was embarrassed about it.

After my run with the puppy I went to the parking lot in my building with my jump rope and I tried it. It is not easy plus I kept thinking everyone in the world was looking at me and laughing because I wasn’t good. My plan was to try it for at least 10 minutes only and I DID. I’m so happy that I did. It was fun and now I will try improve it everyday that’s my new goal. I’m so excited about.

Great news, my puppy loves to run so I don’t have excuses to skip it. He is giantesco ( my word for something bigger giant )

Lately I’m been addicted to this green smoothie . Its super fast and easy to make and give you an extra energy.

In the blender mix 1 cup of water, a hand full of fresh spinach, 1 teaspoon of natural peanut butter, some honey and a scoop of vanilla or unflavored whey protein powder with 2 ice cubes. Blend all and enjoy it.
