hey- i did 500. kinda weak sauce- i know. but everybody watch out. :)
So- I kinda think we shouldn't be posting our numbers everyday. We should keep our totals ourselves- so that no one else can see how much we're doing. Right? Otherwise, everyone sees each other's numbers and does more so they get ahead. THink about it.

Abby,

good point. I wanted everyone to post #'s daily so no one would be totally surprised, however, I don't want someone to win by 1 jump at the last second. So, maybe we'll post Mon, Tue, and Wed. and then keep it a secret until Friday....does this work?

Okay, this is from someone who sat at a desk for 9.5 hrs today; spent 2.0 hours sitting in a car (commuting to work; driving hubby around the valley while he put up campaign signs, my count is 1002 jumps. I hope I am not dead last because my legs feel dead right now. Pam

Abby,

or better yet, everyone will continue to comment in their numbers, but I will not publish them until everyone has written in. Yeah! perfect!

Alrighty...I did 1075. I know I can do better too, because I realized I have some down time that I can do it in where I usually would be wathcing a commercail or something. Anyways...I love this not only is it kicking my butt...because I don't know the last time I jumped rope...but I felt like a kid again and that is always a good thing. Thanks for the motivation and idea Kelly.

No way, post those numbers to motivate me to get off my butt. I only did 250 today. But hey, it's better than zero, right? RIGHT?!

HoustonMamaJenn said...

My count is 1,218. I will try harder today I promise.

The Oylers said...

Just to clarify...Kelly I think I have more than Pam right?

Kelly said...

Hannah,

Pam wrote in later --via email--that she'd jumped a few more times, getting her to 1,210. Sorry about the confusion, but I'm lovin' the competition! Now, stop reading this and GET JUMPING...I've better get my rope out too!

Lewis Family said...

oh, I also did 250 later in the day, for a total of 500! Hey, this is coming from the woman most out of shape of all of you, so think of it as about 5000 for the rest of you.

The Oylers said...

I didn't mean to sound grouchy...I just didn't know that and so I didn't know if you got my email.

I think I can safely say that I am the "oldest" jumper in the group and yes, I did great on Monday, absolutely on Tuesday (no time...) and I am back on track for Wednesday. However, it does look like it might be a late nite for me and I may not be able to get out of bed tomorrow but I really don't want any of you young whipper-snappers getting the best on this old nag! I will send in my count at midnight! Pam

I don't know if I am still supposed to be leaving my comments here or emailing them to you, but I only got 450 yesterday. I know Iknow you are probably laughing at me right now, but thats okay I was lucky to get those in.
