Curvy Hoopers Spreading the hOOplove! :)

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, November 30, 2012


I don't usually post videos to YouTube. I mainly stick with my peeps here and on Facebook. But hooping.org is trying to encourage hoopers of all sizes. They asked all of us "curvy" hoopers to submit a video. After much thought, I decided I wanted to be part of that message. And, since my hOOp journey has also been my SparkJourney, I wanted to share the video with y'all too.

I asked Audrey if she wanted to be in the video and she said, "Of course, Mom! Your hoop story is really about us. We have to do this together." Gosh, I love that kid! Remember when I found that old video of her hooping in the 4th grade talent show?

That girl has become a young woman, but she's still my favorite exercise partner. And guess what? She's on Day 13 of her exercise streak. Go Audrey!


my favorite workout buddy

Her BFF, Emily, went with us and helped with the camerawork. She's become a hooper too. Plus, she's willing to ride in the back seat of the HoopMobile, with all the hoops. She said it was comfortable, but I know she's just being nice.


Emily's a good sport.

So, hopefully, this will encourage somebody not to worry so much about what they think they look like. Life is meant to be lived, no matter what size you are, have been, or will be. GO PLAY!!!!

    Good for you. You go girl. I have a real problem with this in real life. I use the WII Fit plus but can't do more than one go round with a real hoop.

    That is so awesome!! I want to hoop! I have tried it but seems I have lost the ability though I use to be able to do it. Can you use a cheap kids' hoop or do you need something "professional"?

    Great job! I still remember when you didn't think you could do a single trick & there you are, hooping & playing the ukelelee (I can't even spell it!) Every single move you make, I think of where you came from. Keep going. It is totally inspiring.

    Some high school girlfriends had a girls weekend together earlier this month and we made hula hoops. I'm getting better at it, but alot of my exercise is coming from bending down to pick it up! Fun!

    Congrats on being a featured blog!! I had seen an earlier vlog of you hooping, and I am SO inspired by how much different you look now!! And you're talented too!! You can sing, hoop, AND play the ukelele!! And wear a size 14 jeans!! You are awesome!! Your daughter and her BFF were very good sports!! They will keep you young for sure! Now, when I was a young'un..I never could hula hoop. I never learned how. But I want to learn!! Can you give me some tips as to how to find the right size hoop for me?
