Skipping and weight loss.


Hi sweets, guess what? Something sad happened to me yesterday morning, as in eh, it was so bad that i shed a tear. Just guess? Hmmm, so that's how i was busy with my skip-rope session o, next thing i heard a snap, the rope whipped my legs hard, just like that the handle pf my skipping rope snapped in two. Can you imagine? no signal, nothing, chai!!!
See the broken end of my skipping rope*sniff sniff*

Just as i was getting my grove on with the skipping. Mtsheeww! I removed the rope from the other handle thinking i could still manage to finish my routine, but it didn't work well at all. I just have to buy a new one, because even the strongest of all super glues will not hold this one. I decided to use this opportunity to even share the gains of skipping with you guys.

I have been skipping every other day since October last year, on some good days, i do up to 2000 skips, on some other days i do about 1000 skips. Recently, i try not to skip daily because i feel the burn in my things and calves for days and it burns too many calories at once. For people that want to lose weight fast, skipping is a very good option. Did you know that you could burn up to 1000 calories just by skipping for 30 mins (or 1200 skips?)

Skipping is a good form of cardio, and a very fast way to lose weight when you combine it with low calorie meals. See, at my current weight of 77.5kg, if i skip 1000 skips, i burn over 800 calories, imagine? So if someone that weighs 100kg should skip same amount, she would burn over 1100 calories! That's good news o! By the time you are done, you'll be sweating buckets mehn! hahahahaha! So will you try skipping? Please do o, i hope to hear your results. Let me go shop for a new rope. Talk to you guys later. God bless.
Cheliz.

    1. Hi Yetunde. Really it depends on u dear, if you feel you can do more, then go ahead. Just fuel up your body and go again. Dont over exercise though. Give a day or 2 of rest during the week. Take care.
