Hula Hoop


Back in the Philippines, I have a big and heavy hula hoop. It is my friend. Early in the morning, before taking my breakfast, I would take at least 5 minutes with my hula hoop. And an hour before dinner, I would take another 5 minutes with my hula hoop again. It is my stress buster. It is a great help for me on times that I feel like semi-depressed. (Don't get me wrong, I don't have depression. It is actually a chemical change on my body. It's a girl thing. :) ) And the bonus was, I maintained my 26" waistline.
.
I miss my hula hoop very much. I wanted to bring it with me, but I just can't because of its shape. Can somebody lead me on where to buy the same kind that I had? The heavy one. I need it specially this time of the year that I feel like depressed again because of the weather.

hi Grace...
your hula hoop not just seems so heavy and big. But also colourful. I remember I always play this when I was a child, but if you ask me to do it again now, I can't. hula hoop here usually has a brown colour and made from rottan or wood, no colourful like yours. Actually it can set our mind free and prevent depression, and also make your body stay fit of course.

I'm sure there are a lot of hula hoops in the us. Have you try to inquire from Ebay? Thanks for the post. Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to you and your loved ones. God bless you always.
BTW, say hello to Eel Wind. He's a blogger friend of mine.

I tried 'hula hooping' back when I was simply too desperate to lose weight. You wouldn't believe the things I do back then to lose a kilogram. :P

Such a fun way to exercise.

Hoola hoops are the best thing ever for your waist; tummy and butt! Hope you find yours soon!

Anyway; to combat the depression; I find a warm cup of cocoa helps!!

Good luck!

Hi Grace... hey, do you think if I get a hula hoop I can get a 26" waist too? LOL

My name is Shanita. I found your blog through Alice's. I think you can find a hula hoop at any kids toy store or even Walmart and KMart.

Best Wishes

Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to come anytime. Hula hoops were in my life a long time ago, possibly my children's life. I couldn't do one of those now if I had too. Keep up the good work.

I have a plastic one from Wal-Mart for my dog to jump thru. I might just try it out myself. It's been a long time. lol

I used to love hula hoops when I was younger... I should try to get back into it to slim down some!!! It has to be great exercise!! Searching online and ordering is great -- they deliver anything these days!
