Sick and Fun

I'm feeling the blah-iest I've felt in a long time. I think I may be coming down with something. I've been taking it easy, sleeping a lot, and drinking juice. Hopefully this gets out of my system fast!

One cool thing I've wanted to tell you about is weighted hula hoops. My cousin talked about them being popular with people in her office. Then my aunt got one, and I ordered on for my mom. My mom LOVES hers. I've been using my aunts and I like it. I can't really say if I've lost more weight, or my waist is smaller, but it's pretty fun. I'm also very bad at hula hooping. So I have room for improvement and something to work towards.
The one downfall is the price. The price of the hoop isn't so outrageous but the shipping is HIGH! Probably because it's a weird shape or they have to separate it into pieces. I purchased my mom's hoop at Canyon Hoops and my aunt got her's at Body Hoops

So I guess the concensus is so so. It's different, fun, and great for all ages. If you want something new go try them, but you don't have to scour the internet or go buy one right now. And I would recommend finding the kids old hoop, or like me going to gramma's house and finding my old one. They are fun things to get out and play with!! Just a word of warning as well, if you are good at hula hooping on the Wii; it is not the same in real life!

What fun games are you playing this summer?

  1. Hope you feel better as fast as a hotdog disappears at Nathans on the 4th of July.

    Hula Hoop, weightedornot I am not one to model that thing. But I dosee hoe=w such a thing couldbe a great exercise idea. And as you note, if only for something new and different to break up the routine, well then its a winner. Please do get some video of yourself, or mom, using it for us all to enjoy :-)
