Hula Hoops

Some of my college roommates may recall my talent in hula hoop-ing. It's a gift, what can I say?

We got a wii from christmas (from everyone, to everyone- made shopping pretty easy), and I did a 6 minute hula hoop competition on the wii fit yesterday. My back muscles are so sore today.

I unlocked 10 minutes, so I'm going to do that tonight.

I still like the actual hula hoop better, but this counts how many rotations you get, which is fun. Plus, is amusing to watch people hula hoop without the actual hoop (watching with the hoop is fun also, but this is funnier).

I've done some of the ab exercises also, and those have made me quite sore as well. I'm not sure the wii fit would be the best thing if say, you're training for a marathon, but I think it's fun, and you can get a decent workout on it.

I definitely remember your hooping abilities! That's still my fave pic that I have of you:) Glad you guys are enjoying the wii!

Sounds fun! I might have to come over and watch you work out :). I love the new mud room set up. I'm a little jealous that you have a fashionable place to put coats. I'm still brainstorming about that issue.

Charlotte- as a super-in-shape-person- have you ever tried wii fit? I'm wondering what it's usefulness really is. Losing weight? Building muscle? Maintenance?

Becca- you should come over and try it out!

(It's amazing what you can fit on an empty wall, as far as mudroom stuff goes- but we purposely left out a closet in that area to create the mudroom.)
