I'm not weak or feeble, but I think part of me is. I'm just not very flexible or coordinated. I can't touch my toes, for example. I never could. Something like yoga seems like the best solution, but that's not super convenient for my life at the moment. I looked around, and came upon the hula hoop.
Hula hooping is exactly the kind of thing I fail at. I don't have the coordination, and I don't have the stomach muscles to hula it. It seems a lot like my 100 push ups, in the sense that I can do it in my living room, without any investment, and should have real results with just a minute a day. I spent the $3.
Well, I hate my $3 hula hoop. It has beads inside to make a noise. It also had a warning sticker marked, "Do not remove." I removed it, because I did not intend to break it open and choke on the beads. Turned out that was a load bearing sticker. The hoop is now held together with staples.
I should replace it with one that is not a toy. It looks like a non toy version will be called a dance hoop, or a fitness hula hoop. I should also stop making excuses. I tried it, and it's hard. My first few attempts are only adding a single rotation to my initial spin. Day 2 wasn't any better. I don't like to keep failing, but Yoda is full of it. "Try" is real, and it's exactly what I plant to keep doing.
