Working from home

Thursday, April 19, 2012

As part of my saving project I am working from home today - don´t have to waste gas whohooo...not true because I have my aca group at lunch and although I thught of biking there it takes too much time - I AM after all working...

So I better start with that before I start feeling bad about myself because then it is harder to get going. Began this morning with 30 minutes of hooping, that was a good decision because it makes me feel like a good girl! The good thing about the 30 minutes is the fact that I can DO 30 minutes withou heart failure, that would not have been possible two months ago. The bad side of that is that it is not as pulse-raising as it was so the "exercise"- part of it is a little worse than it was two months ago... I can change that of course by doing more moves but I am still rejoicing the fact that I can keep hooping ten minutes without dropping so I need to enjoy that for a while...

Another dangerous thing about this is that I have reached the point where I usually quit - I have gotten skilled enough to show people that I can but it is past the horizon where I am good enough to really impress somebody.To go from a beginner who barely can keep the hoop up to a performer who can present a entertaining act takes a lot of work and that usually makes me give up.

To keep on I need the net - I need the hula hoop all star teams, I need you tube inspirational videos, I need my friends at mimulus theatre.

There is a facebook group for scandinavian hoopers and there seem to be a hooptogether planned in june - It may be fun to attend but I think that I will need a lot more practise before then, not that I have to bee that skilled but I need to be fit enough to have fun with it.

    I am very impressed with 30 minutes, but understand your fear of giving up, I'm the same way. I get bored after I've gotten past the exciting learning curve and am ready to move onto something new. That is a character defect I think and something I need to work on. It also means I rarely complete a project before moving onto another one.

    Wow, Meddy, 30 minutes? And 10 with no drops?? EYE couldn't do two minutes, with or without drops - you are doing fantastic! I hope you'll go to the 'jamboree' and meet your fellow hoopsters, I think it sounds like fun!

    I'm still stuck on you starting the day hooping 30 minutes! WOW! You've come such a long way! I will stay with it as long as it's fun, yes; I'm trying to do some new "moves" but I refuse to make it work. Baby steps! I do better hooping in the morning than at the end of the day. You are making progress in so many ways! I'm glad we're friends. Make it a great day!
