I was telling this story to my sister, Katherine, last night, and next thing I know, I get a notification from Twitter that she mentioned me in a tweet:
Looks like I need to be more careful what I say.
While we're on the subject of working out, I have been really into hula hooping lately. It's not quite as embarrassing as it sounds (that's what I tell myself). These aren't the hula hoops from your childhood - you make them from irrigation tubing and they're pretty large. Besides my own, I made hoops for one of my sisters and a friend and we got together today after work to "hoop." Or as my friend referred to it, "Hoop Group."
I have not only been enjoying the actual sport of hooping, but I've also enjoyed acting like a total nerd about hooping, first by calling it "hooping," which is just silly. Second by telling my sister I have "hoop dreams" (to which she responded, "I'm going to pretend you didn't say that"), and third by working on hoop tricks. The whole thing is embarrassing slash awesome.
And it's really a good workout! It's kinda like belly dancing. Today we worked out in our church building because it was too cold to hoop outside. After normal hula hooping for a half hour, we started rolling the hoops down the gym and running through them (the record was five times through on one roll).
Try not to be too jealous.
Here's a picture of my friend and me hooping.
