Waist to chest without arms-- an epiphany!

As soon as I barely was able to chest hoop-- shakily, while turning-- I wanted to bring the hoop from waist to chest without utilizing my arms. You know, to just shimmy it up there. I could not do it to save my life! After trying off and on for many months, I decided that this was something that my body just wasn't going to do, and stopped trying.I did continue, however, to work on chest hooping, to the point where I am very comfortable with it and can do it nicely without turning.I was…See More

"I think they're pretty. And if I had lots of extra money, I'd have one, maybe several, why not. Just like if I had lots of extra money, I'd have a super-special fancy fun car. However, an LED hoop isn't something on my wish list.…"

One neat thing about my polypro hoop, and other stuff

I came here to post in my own journal, but I detoured first to read other people's latest entries. How uplifting to see so much good news today! People achieving goals, learning, growing, sharing, on a personal level and even with big crowds of people in performances! It makes me smile to read these things!

Me & Sid went to a local park and played for about 2 hours today. We brought the radio and all of our hoops, just in case anyone else wanted to play. Unbelievably warm weather…

 

New hoops!

I was the lucky winner of the December HoopCity Challenge, and I got a $25 gift certificate from hoopsupplies.com. 

First I have got to say that hoopsupplies.com is a wonderful company to deal with. I was a dork and couldn't figure out where to put my gift certificate code, and they emailed me back immediately to let me know how, and they didn't call me a dork. Shipping was lightning quick. I am not sure where they are located but I think it took 2 days to get to me in…

 

Good practice day

I got lots of hooping time in today. Mother Nature was surely smiling upon Atlanta, GA, because despite it being the end of January, it was sunny and warm outside, just perfect! I mentioned before that I've been a little frustrated at having such a small amount of tricks to work with. So I took the time to learn a new trick even if it wasn't one that just wowed me. I really think I need to go to a few classes soon where I can learn some new things with a bit of guidance.

I did a lot…
