My Exercise Buddies

Guess what I bought...

A hula hoop! Hihihi!

When Marisa Tomei was a guest in Ellen DeGeneres' show, she said that her exercise regimen is to use the hula hoop everyday. And she really did it on the show. She can even text while doing it.

So now, I want to try out the hula hoop exercise. We'll see if it's effective.

By the way, the blue yoga mat is something I bought a long time ago. I think I've used it less than five times at home. My plan was to bring the mat to the gym whenever I attend yoga classes. But I don't have a bag/carrier for it, and if I carry it as is, it's too big and bulky for me. So it's just here at home, accumulating dust.

Hopefully I won't be lazy to exercise at home.

I'm back to exercising, working out 30 mins everyday. When I was younger, galing ko mag hulahoop! I just don't know if I can still do it pa. Haha

As a kid I was really good at it, could do it around my middle, go up and down at the same time. Switch it from arm to arm, then legs. Bought one a few years ago for exercise also. It was fun. Good at it, no! That apparently went as my youth did. lol I'm not sure how long you're suppose to do it to get the benefit you need. I tried watching the clock and found that really boring, music might be the trick. Start out with one song, then 2, etc. Mine hoop broke, perhaps I should buy another one.

Please pop in and tell me how you're doing with it, how long you're using it etc. and if you've found a way to do it without staring at the clock. Texting while hooping, no way!
