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!!!!

    Hm, I wish I had known about this video thing earlier in the month. I seem to have a lot of extra curve in my belly these days. I just don't have time to film and try to edit a video at this point...

    I came home from work exhausted, fully intending on taking a nap.. (It was a day of 100 pairs of pants for one of my CP clients.. explanation at another time.. lol) I sat down at my comp, watched your video and decided that I needed to go out and PLAY! So, on day 7 of my streak, I changed out of my scrubs, grabbed my hoop and my iphone and hooped outside for 33 minutes!!! It was so awesome and fun!!
A huge thank you to you and Audrey and her BFF for inspiring me to just go out and have some fun! Yeah I got some weird looks from my neighbors especially when the song "Mysterious Ways" by U2 came on.. lol.. but they think I'm a bit odd anyway.. hahahaha!
Thank you so much again! And congrats to Audrey! You go girl!!

    You just gave me hope! I had tried a few months ago to hula and for the life of me couldn't get the hang of it. It was actually one of your videos that had inspired me to grab my daughters hula hoop and try it....you made it look sooooo easy. After many hours, I hung the hoop on the hook and it has been staring at me ever since. I may have to try it again...Thanks!

    You KNOW I don't care what I look like or what people may say. But I DO wish I could have one hoop session where all I'm doing is picking the thing up off the driveway!!
Your video captures the spirit of fun on so many levels.
Your uke playing has come as far as your hooping, too!!

I have been waiting for this, and It was worth the wait.
