Hula Hula Hopeless

In the attempt to tone up (not scare my girlfriends) for some serious bikini wearing action hanging out in this fabulous weather, I have planned in stepping up the exercise. I get up an hour earlier to embark on 30 mins to an hours core or cardio work. The flaw in the plan is that my daily planned regime is only actually happening twice - ok if I’m honest, once a week – clearly not enough sadly.

My latest brain wave was to purchase a hula hoop!! Genius I thought, how hard can it be? I was ace at the hula as a child, surely it’s like riding a bike??? Errr actually it’s not. My first pop was ½ a spin before it plummeted to the floor. Determined that it must just be a forgotten technique I tried again….. oh dear I am truly terrible at it. There are even exercise classes with hula hoops – thankfully I didn’t sign up before finding that I suck.

I think the random puffball shirt in the photo could be the answer though. Hides a multitude of sins, cupcakes, muffin tops ...... although I think I might sink if I tried to swim in that.

Has anyone else found that this is so much harder as an adult? Wholey unjust ha ha!! However I shall endeavour to master the spinning waist trimming accessory …. Will keep you posted!

  2. Good on you for at least trying to do something. My exercise regime seemed to stop several years ago and it's getting harder and harder to get started again. Good luck with it!
