After a few days of practicing in my garage, I'm starting to see some improvement. I can now walk all around (forward, backward, side to side, around in circles) while waist hooping. Now I'm trying to work on going from waist hooping to lasso and then back down, but it's a challenge for me. I can't seem to get that one down. I'm apparently very fond of whacking myself in the back of the head with the hoop! I've got some beautifully colored bruises on my hips and probably elsewhere. Who knew I could have so much fun while unintentionally beating myself up? Here's hoping that I continue to learn and enjoy new things!
