The Rhythmballing Begins!

I received my Rhythmball exercise equipment today: a Rhythmball paddle, cute yellow ball, and DVD featuring Liu Jia Ji (so says the back of the DVD jewel case). Dad said that the Rhythmball learning curve was minimal and I didn't really believe him; I'm not exactly the most coordinated person on the planet. But the demonstration was helpful and pretty soon I was swingin' my arm and keeping the ball on the paddle AT THE SAME TIME, woo hoo!

I went through the "Basic Action" demonstration a couple of times and was feeling pretty confident at the end of 40 minutes. Yeah, I got some exercise by lunging (lunge-ing?) down to pick up my cute yellow ball, much to the joy of Jasmine the cat, but it really wasn't that difficult to follow along with the DVD professor and it was a lot of fun, too! By the end of it I was sweating with exertion (the A/C was on and everything), and felt like I'd done some good exercise. Good thing, considering that my baby is now seven months old and I've barely lost half of the weight I gained while pregnant. Rhythmball, here I come!
