Watch out! Get outta the way!

Well, My adventures in learning to hula hoop have been rather comical. Comical in a good way though. I'm actually having fun with it. It took me a while to just keep the hoop around my waist. And for now... That is the only thing that i can do with it. Just ask my walls and ceiling fan about that lol, OOOH and my poor little dog too. You'd think he'd step back and give me a little room after a few times of gettin hula whacked! I'm thinking that regular hooping is okay in the living room. But with no skills really, anything besides that I need to step out of the house. lol It reminds me of the episode of The Brady Bunch when Bobby says "Mom always said, Don't play ball in the house!"
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my hoop. But, i am a bit disappointed in the tape job that it has. I had purchased it on ebay. The picture was so much more becoming. I have learned more about how to tape properly as i have found a couple tutorial videos on 'how to tape'. In fact, I now have made and taped my first hoop. The pointers were great and I think my hoop turned out pretty sweet looking for my first. It's a bit lighter and probably 2" smaller then the hoop i bought but i think it's great size actually.
Now to find the perfect clothing to hoop in. I've come to realize that I seem to do best in my pajamas pants and a tight fitting shirt. For some reason i can't seem to do very well in my jeans. I don't wear them tight enough to restrict my movement so i don't think that has anything to do with it. I'm thinking it might be the type of material or the shape they turn my body into? lol
