As you know, I’ve been thinking about hooping since last year, when I found the perfect gift for a 6 year old (Original Post – Hooping Queen) . We had so much fun with her hula hoop… so I did it. I purchased myself an adult Hula Hoop and an instructional and workout video. They arrived last week, and I tried it last night – SO MUCH FUN!!! It just makes me smile ear to ear and laugh hysterically at myself… I feel so good doing it, even though I can see how bad I look in the mirror… it just doesn’t matter, its SO MUCH FUN!
I’m going to set up the garage this weekend to be a mini work-out studio… and get to hooping! My middle looks great thanks to my weight loss and my continued practice of Yoga and Pilates. I no longer look like a barrel, and now more like a svelte woman… and its only going to get better with the hula hoop.
I am SO EXCITED about my hula hoop – and cannot wait to get my Hoop groove on!! I don’t know when I’m going to be able to get to a tropical location to show off my hooping body, but I will be ready when it happens!!
I’m almost shaking with excitement… if it wasn’t already dark out, I’d go set the mini gym up tonight! 🙂 Instead I’m parusing hoop videos on YouTube – gotta love this one – Sexy Hula Hooping and this one – Hula Hooping with Mia. Wow. Sold. 😉
Whats old is what is new again.
I can recall them vaugely as the hoops had a brief rebirth in the 70’s. Sister and her tight abb friend made a brief forey into the spinning land. (can still recall the friends bright blue tube
-top) Kind of like a jump rope for the non boxing/ black top dance types.
Anything that can get you heart rate up, make you look and feel better and can be used in both good weather and bad, will be sure to be a hit.
Enjoy the results.
I think I will! I’m doing Insanity and Brazil Butt Lift too! LOL That hula hoop falls right in line with the ab work!
I may get myself one! Good way to work the abs too!
You HAVE to get yourself one … its so much fun! Takes me back to being a kid when the only thing that mattered was how long the hoop stayed on the hips (and not bills, kids, job, etc.) I’ll let you know how I like the video I purchased once I get to using it… 🙂
