Hula Hooping Update

My daughter told me I needed to be more graceful – she who can do 100+ rotations with relative ease. Sigh! πŸ˜‰ Well, between now and last Monday I did manage to do 40 rotations on good days.Β  My body is also less awkward (more graceful?) as I am slowly discovering the best way to plant my feet for best results. And then there have been days when my waist feels bruised or when I just can’t summon an iota of gracefulness no matter how hard I try πŸ˜₯

Starting something new comes with so many questions. Thankfully, all of them are answered on YouTube, for instance:

Unfortunately, I have the wrong size hoop and apparently, that makes ALL the difference.  The one I bought only comes up to 3/4ths up my thighs, too small for me 😦

I do plan on buying the right size hoop, but this will have to wait until after the move and once we’re settled.Β  Meanwhile, I do what I can with the one I have since anything that gives me a good workout and simultaneously teaches me how to sway my hips is always a win in my book πŸ˜‰

How about you – are you doing anything new in the area of fitness this month?

  1. …I didn’t even know there were different sizes of hoops?! That explains why it’s so hard to hula hoop with a children’s one πŸ˜€ Usually they are also made out of wood so meanwhile that hurts a little πŸ˜‰ Those videos really made me want to try to hoop again with another size made out of plastic πŸ™‚ Good idea to be doing it in front of the telly πŸ™‚ Keep it up, I’m sure you’ll get better by the time coming ❀
