So I hate doing ab work. I hate sit ups, crunches, etc etc. I know I need to do ab work to make my core stronger, but I would like to enjoy it.
So I’m rediscovering a childhood passion – the hula hoop.
When I was much younger, I would hula hoop for hours. I could go and go and go. And it was so much fun!
So now that I’m grown up, and missing the tiny waist of my youth, I thought I’d reintroduce myself to my childhood love.
Of course now it’s called a “sports hoop” and is about 100 times the cost of what I used to use. But anyway, it weighs about 3 pounds and…
I am in love.
It is wonderful! It’s relaxing, therapeutic. I do 15 minutes a day, that’s it. I don’t know whether it will help whittle down my waist, but I don’t care, because I absolutely love it. Apparently you can burn up to 200 calories or so in 30 minutes of hooping. So maybe I’ll do 15 minutes twice a day.
I hoop when I’m waiting for dinner to cook. When I’m watching TV. When I need to clear my head. It turns out 15 minutes is not hard to find.
So I’m hoopin’ it up – and loving it!
And hopefully my waist will love it too. I’ll let you know in a few weeks…
