Yes, indeed! I got to hoop this past weekend! I know it’s Wednesday today, and we’re halfway to the next weekend, but I am pleased that I got hoop, and even give an impromptu performance!
Friday, the 28th, was Studio Spin’s annual Halloween party, and my husband Sam and I went. He went as Preppy Bowie, complete with Aladdin Sane makeup, and I went as a crazy mad scientist, complete with periodic table leggings. That’s what I wore in the above photo.
Party of the games we played at the party was to give an impromptu performance, which I did. I asked for a hard song, and Rachel, the studio’s owner, gave me “Bad Girl” by Avril Lavigne. Luckily, I had hoops with me, so I went to town! It was fun, and it reminded me how much I love performing.
Overall, it was a fantastic party!
Sunday, I went to the Ephrata Rec Center for the first time with my new gym membership. The Rec had finally processed it, and I took some hoops with me, and practiced in the gym, dodging balls from a game of kick ball and basketballs, but I had fun, even though Sam (he was lifting weights), told me about an empty class room that was open. The door was open so I went in and had some fun, until two staff members came in and asked me to leave. I explained how I got in there, but I had to relocate back to the gym. Way to get in trouble your first day, Jenn.
As to hooping and my current physical therapy series, I did not do hoop moves that hurt. Hip hooping hurt, as did leg hooping, so I avoided doing those moves. Once my sacrum is healed, I’ll be back doing all my moves.
So, yeah, that was my hoopy weekend! I plan on going back to the Rec on Thursday, and again on Sunday to work out. I’m looking forward to it!
