I think I'll hula.....


There are always new ways to exercise your way to slimness  You may remember this one from a couple of years ago.  That was a huge failure.

The latest is the hula hoop!  Oh, yea, I've been reading up on the hula hoop and how to trim inches off your waist in NO time!  It's all the rage in the exercise circles, not that I'm actually in an exercise circle.  So, since I choose to buy into that kind of advertising, I ordered one.  I put it together and tried it out.....hmmmmm.  It's really easy to hula hoop with this thing, but maybe I should have gotten little hoops for those flabby arms!


And yes, I am wearing leggings.  I know I said I would never wear leggings again, but apparently I've changed my mind.

Anyhow, I'll let you know if this works.....or if I get a job hula dancing!

Oh Nancy!!
what fun I had with my hula hoop back in the 50's..
I prefer putting some Twist music on..like Chubby Checker or Joey Dee and twist my weight off...
I loved doing the twist..
still do it on occasion..
and I do like your leggings..
think I'll find me some too!!
warm hugs..

Man...I used to be really (really!) good with my hula hoop!! But the last time I tried it, I was an abysmal failure and it made me sad! I mean - how can you go from fabulous (really!!) to epic failure in only 40 some years?? How does that happen???

And for the record - I think you look very cute in your outfit!! You should definitely keep the leggings!!

I've been hooping for the last several months, Nancy! It's great!
(some footage!)

I've been inspired by my friend Sara - she's extremely into it! http://thehappyhoop.com

Hula hooping! Ha! I still don't ever think I've conquered hula hoops! Nor have I gotten up the guts to wear leggings yet...haha!

Love the leggings! Unfortunately when I wear them, my legs look more like sausage squeezing out of the casing. Too bad....

I think you look very, very cute! The leggings look so cute with what else you are wearing!

I have been trying and trying to hula hoop, but the hips just don't obey. I used to could do it, but now I can't.

I love this - Glad to hear they are easier than the standard hula hoop which I can barely do for 2 seconds. Was trying to talk a friend of mine into taking a hooping class and she looked at me like I was nuts. Still may pursue it esp after you said it was reasonably easy :D

That sounds like a great idea, I may have to get myself one. Can't wait to hear if it works. I don't wear leggings much but I do love them and the look of them. That's a cute outfit.
