Hula Hooping on Day 8 of Social Distancing

Funny how playing with the hula hoop makes me feel young. And funny how seldom I got it out in the bustle of my ordinary life. I am rapidly improving my technique, I can walk across the patio and even go up a few steps before it inevitably falls. And, I am definitely getting more nimble as a result of doing my part to slow the spread of coronavirus.

I wanted to show how hula hooping makes me feel so I painted myself much younger, in an outfit I don’t have and probably wouldn’t wear if I did, and gave myself back my teenage hair.

I used Procreate, an app on the iPad to make this sketch.

    Absolutely gorgeous picture! I bought a cheap hula hoop three years ago. It took me ages to get the hang of it but when I did I was hooked! I joined a hoop dance class but wanted something a bit more sporty and couldn’t find a class so I trained as a fitness instructor at the age of 56 and started running Hoopercise classes which I trademarked. I’d like to say I made a fortune LOL but I work full time as a college library manager so I do a class on a Sunday (well I did until lockdown). It definitely keeps you fit and feeling young. I now have a huge collection of hoops and a hoop room (okay it’s tiny 7′ x 7′ but it’s still hoop room Lol)
