Circle of Hell

Thursday, January 31, 2013

My daughter bought a hula hoop filled with water well she was doing it one night and made it look so easy she has never hula hooped and decided I should time her she went for 3 minutes. Well being the smarty I am I said oh that isnt hard I can do that OMG. I twisted it around and down it went over and over I did that twist and down twist and down . I didnt even make it to a minute I wont say how truly horrible I was but it wasnt a pretty sight for sure.
As my daughter tried her hardest not to laugh at me she stated mom Im not sure your burning calories to which I sweetly in my most mom voice said oh yes I am. She said mom Im sure you actually have to make it go around before you can count it I said oh Im not counting the hula hooping Im counting the squats It takes to pick it back up each time hey its exercise.

Anyway I squated, twisted, and sweated for about 20 minutes not once keeping that thing up but I think with all the squating I did to pick it up and all the twist I did to try to keep it in place that had to burn something.

I have not gotten the hang of this circle of hell but it was fun and for some reason I need to prove to myself that I can do it I cant seem to stay away from this thing If I ever get to the point where I can keep it up for a minute then I will brag until then I will do the squats to pick it up off the floor. Who said exercise couldnt be fun and interesting?

I hope everyone is having a great time with thier own personal journeys and remember never say I cant say I will

    Oh too funny! I bought a weighted hula hoop a couple years ago (before back fusion) and while I could hula when I was younger, MUCH younger, I couldn't seem to get it to stay up. Every now and then I think about getting it out and trying it again, but am afraid of what that might do to my back. Keep up the good work. Yes, all those squats will come to fruition and you'll be truly amazed. emoticon
