 As part of my new health and fitness regime (and just for the fun of it) I've started going to hula hoop classes.  So much fun!  And so much hard work - my muscles are aching!
 I'm HOOPING (see what I did there?) I'll get better at it so that it might become a lifelong hobby and also my first opportunity to show off any sort of sporting prowess.  So far I am pretty good at spinning the hoop round my waist (in one direction) and am occasionally managing a couple of the most basic tricks.  Definite room for improvement!
 But even just messing about and failing is good fun and good exercise.  
It's hard to find pictures of people hula hooping that are not joyful.  I think there's a reason for that.
This cat has the same hooping posture as me, which is apparently where my difficulties originate.  Well, practice makes perfect...once I can move again :)

P.S. You can find more info/sources for these pictures on my Hula! Pinterest board, as well as more cheerful hoop pictures.
