Rock-It Challenge Plan

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

We have to make a fitness plan for at least three days this week - 30 minutes or more each time to get our points for the Rock-It Team challenge. I'm on the Wave Runners team.

Basically, I plan to dance every night (well, at least 5 nights) at least half an hour, walk a mile (which is 20-30 minutes) every day - but this is weather dependent so I can commit to four days, and hula hoop 15 minutes three times this week or more (also weather dependent).

Sun- Hooped 15 minutes, Walked 20 , Danced 88 minutes, huge strength training abs/core workout

Mon.- Hooped 19 minutes, Walked 37 minutes, Danced 38 minutes

Tues. - Will walk a mile and dance half an hour, hoop
(I danced 52 minutes - after midnight and I record it for Tuesday)

Wed- will walk a mile and dance half an hour, hoop

Thurs.- will walk a mile and dance half an hour, hoop

Friday- will walk a mile and dance half an hour

Sat- walk dog before leaving (driving two point five to three hours to Maine) and walk on beach if possible (if not too late after arriving and not high tide)

Links About Hoops, Feel Good Chemicals from Exercise, Music

How to Make a Hula Hoop

This looks easy. I may be able to do this myself. It's just the racheting cutting tool that I'm not sure about.


This is a great article about the brain chemicals we get from exercise, which supposedly are even better from hooping.


Song stuck in my head today -
"Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen. Amusing music video, too. Worth a look if you haven't seen it yet.


My son is at baseball camp. I only slept three hours before having to get up to take him there. I planned to sleep a couple hours while he was there, but they just called to tell me he was not participating and was just sitting in the bullpen moping. I talked to him and he was upset that his friend from last week wasn't there. I motivated him to get up and go try to participate, somehow. I hope that he does and I don't get another call. He was the youngest one there for sure. Last week they had over 100 boys and this week maybe 40-50. It was a discounted week for boys in our town last week, so that is probably why.. Also it's a vacation week for many people, I think. I hope he has fun. I'm not sure when I can sleep!

Got another call from my son and didn't understand hardly a word. They just called me to come get him now because he won't participate. Bummer!

    I had the hardware guy cut mine and then used a metal rasp to even it up.

A heat tool is invaluable to soften the tubing to insert the coupler.

I love that I made my own hoop!

So sorry about your son - it's tough for kids to do activities without someone they know. But what a good opportunity to meet new kids.

Here's hoping you get a nap!

Vlog - Exercise - Good for your Emotions and Mind

Sunday, July 01, 2012

So this is a vlog I took while walking today. Check out the gorgeous Tiger Lilies by the stone wall. I am talking about getting 10-15 minutes of exercise in to help you with coping with challenges like financial, relationship, parenting, etc.

Happy July, Sparkfriends! What a great month to be a Spark-ler! ;)

    Thank you Angel! New England is so beautiful. I love the lilies...but one thing I really love when I'm there are all those stone walls! We don't have anything like that in California.

Good job on your exercise and your commitment! Love,

These are from a few days ago.

Love my waistline here!

Awesome hoop levitation! :)

Eating ice cream while hooping. This was tricky! Fun, though! :)
I love my waistline in this one, too. ;)

My 5 year old son, Nicholas, took these pictures of me.

    I completely lack the coordination to keep a hula hoop going beyond a scant few revolutions. Envious!
