Spin it, baby! I’m really getting the hang of this hula hoop malarkey and love that I’m only ever aiming for 10 minute sessions. Things have been a bit mad so aiming for 10 minutes is manageable. In just a few weeks I’ve gone from being a complete hula novice to a full 10 minutes uninterrupted and am working on getting up to 10 minutes in the other direction too (anti-clockwise). It’s awesome! My other activities have fallen by the wayside somewhat – there may even be a think layer of dust settling on my kettle bells – but since I’m finding even these short hula sessions pretty physical it’s not bothering me.
And I really need to consider upping my step target to 10,000 again as I’m hitting and beating that most days now, which is great. I remember my pregnancy low was about 2,500 steps so it wan’t surprising I gained a bit of weight and felt miserable. I’m back on the move – yay!
