Good morning my lovely hula hooping SP friends
well if you see the title of this blog, this is exactly what I am experiencing at the moment, spin the hoop around my waist, move my waist a bit, thud as it hits the floor, and squat to pick it up, all in good form of course....and boy do I ache this morning. Even my hands, wrists and arms, this is crazy do not underestimate this workout, lots of fun too especially dancing to your favourite tune!
Now I know that some of you are taking up the challenge too, which is amazing, I have asked my friends, their children, everyone and anyone, people of all ages, if they can't use the hula to do some dancing instead, anything to keep moving, as we all lead such a sedentary life! The fact of being in front of a computer dictates this too, but I love contacting you all!
My wonderful SP sista has such a great blog and once I get the go ahead will share the link with you all.
So let's get back to SPIN, THUD, SQUAT!
HOPE YOU ALL JOIN ME AND IN THE WEEKEND WE CAN JOIN TOGETHER AND HULA HOOP OR DANCE ALL OVER THE WORLD, JUST HAVE TO WORK OUT TIME DIFFERENCES!
WHAT DOES EVERYONE THINK?
P.S Here is my thread on the fitness message board if anyone is interested?

Hello beautiful wonderful people,
yesterday was the last day of a course I teach to adult students. In my teaching I try to reach my students and start off a class with positive affirmations, when I visit them in their placements schools or daycare (part of my job) if their practice is good, and I see that they have tried their best, I try to build their confidence. I try to guide and apply patience, but believe me at times I am tested beyond with excuses of not submitting work on their deadlines.
Anyway recently the students have been learning about the EYFS which is the early years curriculum so that they can assess and plan for the childrens' development. It is difficult because it is a very long document and they have to try and track where they are, make comparisons to the 'norms' of development and the EYFS, plus back up their findings to a relevant theorists. I understand how difficult when it is very new and English is not your first language.
Great frustration is shown from them as they need to submit work, they often state that it is easy for me, and when I tell them that everyday I struggle with so many things, especially with my weight which fluctuates up and down, and concentration levels, they are surprised.
I tell them of my journey of trying new things, teaching myself to swim, taking up yoga, hand weights, and recently the hula hoop, they were surprised as some told me that they learnt when they were children and that it was so easy. I told them that we never stop learning and that I was not giving up, even with my quest to get fit.
Well yesterday, along with a thank you card as it was their last session, they urged me to open up a box, and you will never guess what was inside?
Yes a beautiful hoop, but the strange thing I had looked on the internet and even asked a friend it they thought it was ok........this hoop is pink and purple, and you assemble it. They told me that I can take it into the forest with me, and practice in the nature. WHAT AN AMAZING GIFT, SO MY QUEST TO LEARN THIS SKILL CONTINUES.
WHO BELIEVES IN THE LAW OF ATTRACTION, IT NEARLY BLEW MY MIND, WHEN I SAW THE EXACT ONE I HAD LOOKED AT, AND HAD NOT TOLD THEM ABOUT IT
HAVE A BLESSED DAY AND REACH OUT TO PEOPLE WHEREVER THEY ARE, KINDNESS AND APPRECIATION IS THE ONLY WAY FORWARD
PEACE AND HARMONY, THANK YOU TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS LONG BLOG, BUT I WANTED TO EXPLAIN A LITTLE ABOUT MY WORK TOO.
