Hula hooping changed my life

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Boston you are in my prayersÖ

A year or so ago I made my very own hula hoop. I went out and got all the stuff I needed to make my very own hula hoop. Now, you are going to have to do some research if you plan on making one, but its fun, stress free, and its one hell of a work out if you keep up with it. Now, Iím not going to promise you a body shaped like mines after your first year of hula hooping, but I can assure you. With diet and exercise this will work its fun, energizing, and will improve your sex life (ladies). Other words just have fun with it donít be afraid of the hula hoop. Give it a try.

When I was looking at old vlogs last night, I really started to see the progress unfold right before my eyes. Iím happy with my current weight status, and let me be truthful here. I was close to losing my mind a few hours ago, but I sat down and reviewed some old files, and when I saw how big I was when I started hula hooping I was shocked. Now, we all know that weight loss can be a very stressful thing, but the moment I took the stress out of this journey everything became systems go, and I had a little help from a great spark friend who knew what I was in need of. I was in need of a pick me up, and she did just that she picked me up. I will admit. I did let the hula hoop chill in the corner for a while, collecting dust and only touching it once every other week, and doing others things, but when I picked it up again, I decided Iíll hula hoop in heels just to see if I still had the magic touch of balance, and I did.

Now you all might find this funny, but Iíll hula hoop in my undeeís when the kids are gone to school. I would hula hoop in the nude, if I didnít think my husband would rush me. LOL no just kidding ĖI just love hula hooping, and this is by far the best thing Iíve ever tried and I donít think Iíll ever put the hula hoop down again. My husband said to me the other day, thatís your energy ring and also your thinking ring and not your thinking cap, because when Iím faced with a problem, I will pick it up put it around my waist and give it everything I got until I solve my problem. Hula hooping is fun creative and something Iíll never get enough of, and I just wanted to share my love for the hula hoop with everyone here on sparks Ėalong with all the other sparks hula hoopers.

WarningÖ Do not hula hoop in heels if youíre not steady on your feet.

    Um.... one word... AWESOME! That song fits this video so well :-) How you feel about hula hooping is exactly how I feel about my dance games and my fitness trampoline (except they cost more lol). I am on the verge of buying a hula hoop. I can't wait to try it out!

GREAT VLOG!!! I have a hula hoop but I couldn't figure or remember how to make it go around my waist so I just did it on my arms. Now since I've lost more weight maybe I can figure it out again. Is it like doing the hula? I can do that! lol Thanks for sharing. You made me emoticon when you were trying to get your momentum going.
Be Blessed!

    You look hot! Keep it up. I've never been coordinated enough to do a hoop, even when I was a kid, but I've got one and I keep trying.

    WOW! You should have seen ME though! I'm watching your video and around 1 -2 minutes into it, I'm moving in my desk chair. Not sure if I'm moving to the music or helping you keep up the hoola hoop! Either way, I'm laughing at myself! emoticon
Great job!
