Hula Hooping Progress

Saturday, July 06, 2013

In anticipation of my upcoming 100 lb lost (not yet!) hooping vlog, let's take a look at THIS awkward hoop video:

I think my favorite part of this video is my hubby, the camera man, LAUGHING at me. Oh, but this video sure made me cringe! What awkward hooping skills. Haha. I'm happy to say I HAVE IMPROVED tremendously! Just you wait and see!

In fact, we recently had a big party at work for our residents and their family members. (I work at a retirement home.) We took a Cruise to the Caribbean. After dinner, the young wait staff had a limbo contest and I brought my hula hoops for staff to play with simultaneously. However, the residents were eagerly awaiting the show way before the kids were ready to limbo, so I turned on the music and started hooping... BY MYSELF. I still can't believe I did that!

After the limbo contest, the band started playing and the residents wanted me to hoop some more. So I hooped for about half of the show with breaks in between because it was so dang hot.

I had never hooped in front of a crowd before!

Nor had I hooped in a dress.

So... my hooping has progressed. :) Video to come. 100 lbs, here I come!
