As previously stated, I went to a hula hooping (?) class yesterday with some friends. It wasn't so much a class as it was just a group of people gathered together to do some hooping. And there was music playing, which was nice. But I really enjoyed it! I was able to talk to my friends while attempting to hula hoop. Which apparently I haven't done (without the aid of Wii Fit) since I was a child. I thought that I was a good hooper until I attempted this class. Thankfully, one of my friends is a great hooper and showed me some tricks to get the thing to stay up and continue going round and round. I should've taken a picture but since I am notorious for never taking my camera anywhere there was nothing to document this excursion. If I may, let me paint a picture for you...I am decked out in work out gear and am standing in the middle of a church yard with about 25 other people trying to get a dang hoop to stay around my hips. I'm quite proud of my hips (since there's really nothing else I can do about it except be happy that I have them because they aren't going anywhere) so I thought they would be helpful in the hooping area. Not so much. But finally, after watching little girls and their mothers literally shame me in my hooping skills, I got the hang of it. And I worked up a freaking sweat. So for those of you in the Pittsburgh area, here's where I went: hula hoop gathering and for those of you not living here, I'm sure there are places in your city that offer similar classes/gatherings. I highly recommend it to someone who wants to try something new or if you are a mom/grandma/someone responsible for a child, it's very kid friendly.
