"Before it was known and recognized as the common colorful plastic toy (sometimes with water or sand inside the actual hoop), the traditional "hula hoop" used to be made of dried up willow, rattan, grapevines, or stiff grasses. Even though they have existed for thousands of years, they are often misunderstood as having been invented in the 1950s." Source: Wikipedia
Before giving birth I thought that I will not have time to worry about my figure after giving birth, so I did not really make thoughts about my work out schedule after pregnancy.
Well, I really did not have much time to think about it but every morning when I put on my trousers I was reminded. :)
Even though 3 weeks after giving birth I was only 3 kilos more than before my pregnancy, my trousers somehow would not to fit.
Of course, I did not have the time to hit the gym, so I had to think about activities I could do at home.
Walking with the baby is obviously a good start but I felt I needed more workout. So when my doctor said that everything was all right and I could start again with sports I grabbed my hula hoop.
It is a fun and easy way to get back in shape. Many remember doing it in their childhood and when they start doing it as adults, they do not really understand why it seems to be so difficult.
Well, you have to practice but after a few sessions you will love it. And the result can be seen really quickly.
How about you? How do you keep fit?
