Hula Hoop Workout

I have shared with you that on New Years Eve I demonstrated my maturity by consuming some adult beverages and showing off my hula-hooping skills.  But Dr. Oz has validated me!  Last week he featured a segment on the hula hoop workout.  Do you know what this means?!

  • I am at the front of a fitness trend, I was hula hopping before Dr. Oz!
  • I can multi-task: I was celebrating New Years and exercising.
  • You can exercise and drink at the same time!  This falls in line with my 5K selection criteria!
  • If you hula-hoop while drinking, the calories won’t count.
  • I am not a dork, I am a fitness guru.
  • I have found a form of exercise I can do while dressed up, as suggested by the pictures below.

Thank you Dr. Oz for confirming what I have been trying to share with people.  Hula-hooping is good for you!

How do you have fun while exercising?

Is it sad that I could provide two different pictures of me actually hula-hooping as an adult???

    You had me at “Exercise and drink at the same time.”
    You aren’t just a fitness guru.
    You are my personal hero.
    Carry on.

    Alright, I dance like crazy for fun and I hear that exercising. Although hooping looks more rigorous.

    What a skill!!! It is confirm, you are my guru! I have never find anybody who put the words drinks and exercise in the same sentence! Bow down… 🙂

    And — as picture two shows — you’re doing it in heels. And you’re not even “slightly off balance.”

    OMIGOD YOU’RE IN HEELS?!?!??! I can barely walk down the stairs barefoot!!! Bravo, darling…

      Thanks Lori – I am not sure where being able to hula hoop in heels will take me in life, but I am sure it would be a blog worthy story! 😉

    My hula hooping skills are bad – which is to say nonexistent. And there is nothing sadder than a person attempting to hula hoop who cannot do so to save their own life.

    This is a fitness craze I shall have to pass on and I bow to your mad hooping skills.

      I have to say, I have seen others hula hoop who can’t… it’s not sad, it’s amusing, and quite possibly an even better workout! 😉 My friend ran all around the house trying to keep the uhla hoop up!
