Lisa: hoopin'

You guys know me and traditional exercise: I pretty much hate it. But something about the current hula hooping fitness craze caught my interest. Maybe it's the retro appeal. Maybe it's because I have positive memories of hula hooping as a kid. Maybe it's because you can burn up to 600 calories an hour while looking almost like you're holding still. Who knows? But I do know the purpose of having a blog, and that is to embarrass yourself in front of a large audience whenever possible. SO. Here's a creepily silent video of me doing all the hooping tricks I currently know. Maybe in a few months I'll be posting one where I look a lot thinner and have a more impressive repertoire. It could happen. More importantly, if you saw me over on Health Month and I said I exercised, this is probably what I was doing.

I think if you hula-hooped for an entire hour, you might give yourself an abdominal trauma. Or at least make yourself seasick.

I've been going for 45 minutes at a time, but luckily I haven't ventured into that one-hour danger zone.

Traci: a million times yes! Plus, you're a much better hooper than I am, so I can pick your brain on all the tricks I can't do yet. :)
