Rebound Love

Don't know about you, but I've made no new year's resolutions this year. Why begin a new year (even decade) with an obvious failure. (Be realistic, if in all prior years it never worked...)

Instead, what I did do is, hauled in my rebounder, dusted it off and looked for some exercises on YouTube to follow. Mainly, what I wanted to know is if it would do me any good to use it without my feet ever leaving the webbing.

Why? Various reasons, not the least of which is that I lose my balance easily, afraid of heights... Come to find out, one can generate enough motion without ever bouncing off the surface to give the lymphatic system a workout. That seemed like a positive direction. (If you are interested in reading more about the benefits of using a rebounder click here.)


Within minutes of bouncing ever so gently one can feel the various muscles in the body responding. Your muscles tighten up to keep a balance and even after a 15 minute session I felt my muscles the next day.

I was happy thinking of "doing good" for my lymphatic system and as a bonus even my muscles benefit. As you get used to the motion there is easing and the familiarity allows you to experiment with a variety of moves. As the entire process reminds you so much of being a kid again how can you help but begin to feel giddy?

All in all, for over a week now I've actually been doing something wonderful for myself and all this without ever making a new year's resolution! It makes it a double plus in my book of tally.

If you are wondering about equipment, I would highly recommend Kettler. They make quality equipment for a very reasonable price for "home gym" as well as their professional lines.

Kettler products are widely available in sporting goods stores around Budapest.

The following list of on-line cookie recipes was making the circuits a few years back in Christmas mailers. I was fascinated by it then and still am so I thought I would share it with those of you who love cookies.

Chill the milk and let's begin.
