Drill It.



Geri and I are working on off-body hooping while I am preggers. Makes sense. For the time being, I am working on perfecting my weaves and such so that I can work up to doubles. Geri recommended practicing while I am talking on the phone, because it will help me to not think so much and I can get to the point where spinning that hoop is second-nature. That will be the point I can throw in a second hoop.

In my HOOP JOURNAL, I wrote a couple of drills for myself to practice this week. These isos and weave drills take NO TIME, and I did them 4 times yesterday and my arms and shoulders were actually SORE today! That means that even if you practice a little bit here and there throughout the day, you still get a huge benefit physically from the work you are putting in. DO IT!! It’s a great break from the computer, or if you have to let the dogs outside for a bit…I just go outside with them into the backyard and practice some drills for a few minutes. It’s still hot here, and I’m pregnant, so that’s really all I can manage at the moment unless I get up early.



Holy hoop hiatus!! I have not posted anything for a couple of months because I am PREGNANT!! I am now about 17 weeks and nausea has calmed down just recently. Up until now, I couldn’t even DREAM of hooping in my condition. Now, morning sickness is (mostly) past and I can sort of regain my life a little bit. Which includes, of course, hooping.

I had a session with Geri last week, which I will write about soon, but for now, I leave you with this pregnancy hoop video. I will try to unearth these as I move along in my pregnancy to give myself and others some pregnant hooping inspiration. It CAN BE DONE!! This girl is 17 weeks, right where I am, and clearly much further along in her hoop journey than I am. Always something to aspire to. 🙂
