Hoops and Turns

Losing weight has been a sort of preoccupation of mine these days. Not that I’m exactly chubby. I’m just a few pounds overweight. But still, I need to lose those extra pounds. It’s a good thing that my housemate, Janice asked me to go night jogging again. We started night jogging last May at the Ayala Triangle Gardens with another housemate of ours but we managed to do it for a couple of nights only because of the weather and other stuff. Every time we plan to go jogging, it would either rain at night – our usual time – or they would be unavailable.

So months have passed and by the end of October, Janice suggested that we should do it again. I readily agreed. But our other housemate, Aileen wasn’t too keen to go night jogging again. She wasn’t that committed anymore on losing weight as we do. So it’s just Janice and I now. At first we only did running for a few nights. Then I suggested that we go hula hooping too. I bought a hula hoop last summer to go with our losing weight and getting fit plan. But we never got to use it. I’ve read articles before that hula hooping is a fun way to get fit and lose weight.

So that’s what we’re doing now. For several nights, we take turns running and hula hooping around the Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati. We didn’t know how to hula hoop at first but after a few nights, we were already having an easy time and enjoying ourselves. We also started eating more healthy food now and hopefully we get to see positive results soon.

  1. Awesome! Keep it up – there’s nothing better for building core strength. I accidentally got in great shape by hula hooping. You can burn up to 600 calories an hour actually. Check out hooping.org if you want more info and good luck!

    • Thanks! That’s what we’re aiming for. I know I got the wrong size of hoop, but I’ll be replacing it with the right one soon. You have a great and informative site, btw. =)
