The Hooptacular, Victorious, VORTEX Hoop Vlog!


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, August 30, 2011


Yes, yes, yes!!!! I can finally do the VORTEX! After almost two years of trying (sadly, I'm not exaggerating), I discovered the secret--earmuffs. Plus, I learned it before the end of my Summer 5% Challenge. Goal met! Oh, and we added a new toy to our fab freak show. Wait 'til the end... Keep learning and trying new things! I love SparkPeople! :)

    You know what? I thoughtnI was the only one in the world who is not a trained athlete - in fact I am oese and 59 - who still wanted to do circus tricks! I am way behind because I can not hoop, but I can change a blue guitar into a blue ukulele with magic....

What an inspiration - I am not alone! I need to get a camera - it willmotivate me to practise if I make v-logs...

    You've inspired me! I went out and bought myself a hula hoop over the weekend. It makes me so mad I can't keep it going more than a few spins around my thick middle. I could do it ad nauseum when I was a kid. My daughter emailed me today with my 6 yr. old granddaughter's birthday list and guess what -- she wants a hula hoop. I emailed my daughter that I plan on getting her one and practicing with mine so that we can hula together at her birthday party on October 1st. Wish me luck! At least it's a fun way to exercise!! Love your blogs!

    Oh my gosh. You two are the CUTEST things I've ever seen. I watched this and the guinea pig video -- you have a wonderful sense of humor (: I'm also super jealous of your hula-hooping skills! I could hardly hula-hoop when I was actually fit, ahahaha. Keep up the amazing, inspiring work!

    I wish my neighbors put on THAT kind of freak show!! If only...
Gotta tell you though: Gunner is inspired by you two!! In two weeks he could be spinning that hoop around his neck while you two eat that dog bone!!

How about a night show? Put those little winky lights on you and night glow on the hoop and spin away!! Even Gunner could wear a glow stick!!
You guys are the coolest since 7-Up popsicles!!!
