Singing "Spark People Cup" Chorus and Hooping Stuff

Monday, April 30, 2012


I sing the chorus of "Spark People Cup" (take-off by MostMom1 on "Red Solo Cup" and lots of hula hoop talk - for hoop newbies about what kind to get and about hoop tricks I'm learning and the challenges.

    Do you have the travel hoop from Hoopnotica? I do. I haven't tried it for tricks, but you can snap 5 segments instead of six to make a 36 1/2" hoop instead of a 42" one. Then it is a little lighter.

I have written and mentioned you in my blog when I received my first hoops, but I have not thanked you in person for recommending Spellbound Hoops. Michala makes awesome hoops. I got 2 for myself (40" & 38"), as well as a set of minis. I also got my GDs their own hoops (30" & 19"). If I ordered 4 or more, I got 20% off.

I just ordered a 42" dance weight one for tricks/ I'm excited for that to come. It has zebra tape. She had a contest on her Facebook page, which I did not win, but she offered 30% off by the end of April, so that was the excuse I needed to justify buying another. LOL.

Good luck on the tricks. I will start soon trying.

    MP...you'd have to know her personally. Trust me when I say that she didn't get paid to do that...she's just that crazy. Crazy for Sparkpeople, I mean; she's just plain crazy as well, but I'm strictly talking about Sparkpeople in this context. The number of insane things she's convinced grown people to do are staggering. I believe I was talked into wearing tights once for a video production, but I may have blocked it out. And I know of at least two men she's talked into dressing in drag...did I mention that this was all for church?

    2 in the morning?? Good golly!
I thought it was time for me to do a non-hooping vlog. I do plan on doing a hooping/uke vlog sometime soon...
No, I didn't get paid for that. No, they didn't ask me to do it. I just really love my cup. I drink more water with a straw than with a water bottle and the logo really does make me happy. So...no ulterior motives there. I just thought it was hilarious that it fit into that song.
Using a hoop that was too heavy is what kept me from being able to do a lot of tricks. I had to switch to a lighter dancehoop before I could do stuff. Then I switched to even lighter, to do the off-body stuff. I still bruise my hands using the minis. The calamities of hooping! LOL

    MeddyPeddy, I don't think she's getting paid for it. She just loves the cup and that's a popular song in the US that she's doing a take-off of. I prefer the stainless bottle, really, and might get one.

Lynn - I AM going to make a SparkPeople tee shirt. I have the tee-shirt (teal, though trying to talk my husband into trading for the purple one I got for him) and the fabric paint. Planning to make the logo with the blue, green, yellow, red, and white star in the middle.. and probably an "I (heart) SparkPeople" on there or "I'm getting healthy with SparkPeople" maybe. ;) But how would you make your own cup?

    Cute vlog... I think I will order a cup and a tee after I reach my first goal weight.
If I got the cash hanging around. I wonder. Can I make my own cup and tee. That should be a challenge. To design a spark cup and a tee shirt... Just a thought. And its hard to spin those heavy hoops. I've been playing with my lighter hoop, and almost I almost busted my lip doing one of those tricks... Anyway! I made my own hoop, and will be making some more. I love creating things. And I paid 11 dollars to make my own. Thanks for sharing all the places to purchase a hoop. I was flipping over the online prices, and I have no enegry. My husband is playing all kinds of jams with his nose. And your singing is great...

Getting Better and a Scale Victory

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Today I am listening to my body and staying home. I felt very ill last night and even though I'm feeling better today, I think I should stay home. There is a good chance that I am contagious. My son is feeling better today and doesn't seem to have a fever anymore, so that's a good thing. I need some more sleep, but I got up to call in sick, make sure things are okay there, and check on my son. Then I was so hungry, I had to eat something. Feeling hungry is an excellent sign, because last night I was so sick I wasn't hungry much at all, and when I did eat I got sick to my stomach every time yesterday. So far, not feeling that badly. I'm going to treat myself gently today. I wish my son would do the same and treat me gently, too!

Today I am celebrating because I have lost 1 more pound! That brings me to 3.5 lbs. lost this week! :-) Woohoo!!! This is very unusual for me, as it is usually just one pound a week. What I did differently this week was I kept to the lowest end of my calories on my recommended calorie range except one day I was at the high end. I also did a lot of exercise this week, about an hour a day and sometimes more. It wasn't grueling workouts, though. It was mostly walking and dancing. I also did that 10 minute SparkPeople cardio kick boxing routine, and those are pretty good, so I'll be doing more of those. Well, it is working!! Hurray! So glad to have the scale show the change I've been seeing in measurements and other NSVs. :)

(Affirmation Time)
I am healthy!
I am stronger!
I am lighter!
I am fit!
I am fabulous!

Have a great Spark Day, everyone! Get your 10 minutes of exercise in, OK? And aim for 5 or more freggies! You can do it! Take care of yourselves.

Namaste'

    Thanks so much for all of your encouragement. Congrats on your great week! I just weighed in and I'm down 1.3 lbs! We've got to start somewhere, don't we? :) I also did 15 minutes of light training on my Wii Fit. I could feel it in my injured calf, but I did it! :) Looking forward to more great days ahead! emoticon
