I can hula hoop

Monday, January 07, 2013

I was watching TV I think and I saw a woman talk about how she took 4" off her waist by hula hooping.
How fun right? I went and got a hula hoop at Walmart.
How depressing it kept falling down. emoticon And falling and dropping and dropping. Was my hoop broken or what.
But I did not give up.
As a kid I loved doing this.
Day 3 frustrated I finally said I am going to youtube to see how to hula hoop. YouTube has everything on it.
I learned to put my feet in front of each other not side by side. Still drop, drop drop
Googled hula hoop
OMG there are so many different kinds. Weighted hoops, colored hoops, big hoops arm hoops. Yes this really is workout equipment.
One article said the hoop needs to be between the navel and the nipples.
In other words bigger, bigger. My hoop was broken.
My husband said I had some old hoops in the garage we used in the pool. I never throw things away. As a teacher/librarian you never know when you may need it.
Cut it apart and magic I can hula hoop.
Do you want abs of steel hula hoop. For $6 you can have fun and hula hoop.
Remember buy two if they are not big enough.

I may not be a kid but I can have fun like the kids.

    Yes! I have a hula hoop tucked behind my love seat. Before my hip starting giving me trouble, I used at during commercial breaks becuase it has the noisy beads in it.

Keep hula hooping!

    Good for you for not giving up! One foot in front of the other is key as is more of a front to back motion rather than trying to just circle your hips. Hooping is fun! So is dancing! I dropped a dress size with belly dancing. This also stengthens your core. Keep up the good work! emoticon

    Ha ha that must have been funny. It took the other half (your hubby) to get you on track.
I know you can do anything you set your mind to.
