Started last week .
Hopefully got the right hoop this time.
In a span of 4 days , practising for abt half hour every day – have only kept the hoop up to a count of 8 so far :( 18 months ago
Starting July 11? Come join us!!
This goal has moldered for a year, but I am dusting it off. I ordered a beginning hooping dvd. Baby steps… 2 years ago
I hooped for an hour. ;)
I figured that as long as I was just going to watch some football (and Extremem Couponing) I may as well burn extra calories. According to my HRM, I burned 385 calories hooping. :-D 2 years ago
How I did it: I watched several YouTube videos to learn what to do. My third hoop was the charm. After trying (and failing) to hoop with hula hoops that were too small, I finally got an appropriate, adult-sized hula hoop! (K-Mart special!) THe size is important:the smaller the hoop, the faster it spins and the harder it is to keep the hoop up.
I got a hula hoop as part 1 of a belated birthday present. And being too embarassed to try it out right when I got it, I went home and attempted hula hooping in front of Brad (while he was ‘watching’ love in the wild).
Let’s just say… I stink! ha ha! But I don’t even mind. I’ll get better. Brad and I were laughing our butts off taking turns (part of the reason I can’t say here!!). He even found me some instructional YouTube videos.
My eventual hope (other than the fact that hula hoops are FUN) is to get crazy hula hooper abs!! Man, if I could learn to hoop in both directions… and then I could just hoop for minutes upon minutes! What a great ab work out. 2 years ago
I talked to the doctor yesterday about my hula hoop. He started laughing. I dunno why I pay to see him, he should call it even with the comic relief I provide. He winds up laughing at all my visits.
Anywho, doctor wants me to wait until I have done a few cardio-rehab monitored walks. Then I am free to start my hula hooping. I am waiting impatiently. Seriously, I have this beautiful custom hula hoop and a goal to accomplish. 3 years ago
