Hooping away

Sunday, June 29, 2008

That's been my exercise for the day. Not a WHOLE lot, either. But I've been having fun.

I've been leaving the hoop in the middle of the living room floor. So, every time I walk by (I live in a TINY condo ... walking by happens ALL the time!), I pick up the hoop and try. No pressure, just having fun.

Well, all that eyes-closed business is paying off. I can now consistently do 7 to 15 twirls ... still getting the "feel" of the thing. But at least I'm able to push in the right direction now, as the hoop presses against my body. And given that this is apparently a kid-sized hoop, I'm pretty darned proud of myself. Now I'm tempted to start trying some of those fancy moves from the YouTube videos - well, maybe in a couple of weeks.

Although, I can do an around-the-body (hands only) loop, and a lasso pretty darned well. I'm now trying to get the hang of the corkscrew - too much brain action, not enough hip action. :) And no, I'm not really sore, just very, very mildly - I guess those crunches were good for _something_ after all! :)

I'm jazzed. Or hooped. And definitely whoopin' it up! :)
