25 minutes....

Monday, July 02, 2012

If I add up my exercise minutes for june and divide them in 30 I get an average of 25 minutes a day - cardio that is. That is promising, my goal for july is to reach at least the same level - started with 37 minutes yesterday on the bike but it took me forever to get around to it. This month I need to get my hooping going again. I am not motivated but daughter is coming today and that will hopefully help as she is a wizard with the hoop.

I need a class to help me with the hooping but there is none around. I could join some tutoring gorups on the net but it is not the same... oh well, lets see what I can do with some stubborness, all those positive psychology tests made it clear to me that consistance is not one of my strongest talents... what else is new?

I am even more eager to get going with the hoop!

    Maybe you should teach a hooping class in your area.....When i took line dancing, the teacher said she learned more by teaching than she did from being a student.

    I love my hoop, but I can only hoop in one direction. When I try the other way, my eight pound hoop falls, inevitably hits my leg and leaves a bruise. So, I'll go one way.

    I like your getting the average cardio per day for the month and then trying to better it. Great idea! Keep up the good exercise habits and you'll see lots of benefits.

    Nice blog, and nice aerobic minutes!

    Sometimes I need to give myself a figurative kick in the you know what to get going. We all do.

    And it usually feels better when I have got myself into forward motion!

    Yoga class is about all I'm willing to commit to. I just don't like being "scheduled".
    The heat has cut into my hooping this past week.
    I'll check out these links later. Need to get out and walk Sugar.
    Have fun hooping!!

    I'm going to check the link you posted. As far as classes go - I hear you, hon. I haven't been looking for a hooping class, but I have been looking for a couple of other things (creative writing, for one) and there just isn't anything local. I was thinking about (it is to laff) trying to organize one, but it seems daunting, not least because I'd be seriously over-reaching. I need to BE taught, not do the teaching, lol; that'd be a major example of the blind leading the blind...

    Point being - have you thought about trying to start a group in your community to see what kind of interest it draws?
