I am done with physical therapy (PT), and I feel pretty good! On Sunday, I felt good enough to go the Ephrata Rec Center and hoop while Sam did his weight lifting, so I did.
Unfortunately, the gym was full of guys playing basketball, as one would expect in a gym. Luckily, Jenny, who happened to be stationed at the front desk, said I could go into the assembly room and practice. I had a great space all to myself, and I had fun.
I noodled around for a bit, and decided to do something I had been toying with for a while; going on Facebook Live. I had stuff with me to make a stable video, so I went for it. I had a few likes and views!
I was able to upload the video on YouTube, so you can watch it there. It’s pretty good, I guess, for a live video, but I want to share it with you. I figured it was a good way to celebrate my recovery (I’m still not 100 percent, but I’m much better) and share my happiness with others.
Anyway, here’s the video. It’s kinda long, but it’s fun and I’m having fun in it.
Hooping.org once again hosted the Curvy Hoopers Video Challenge, and I entered again myself this year. Below is my entry, wish me luck!
Win or lose, I just like making hooping videos. Really. Oh, and this is also the first time I’ve allowed comments and thumbs up/down on my YouTube videos. So far, so good.
Learn more about the Curvy Hoopers Video Challenge here and learn about what it means and hopes to do for curvy hoopers out there. I think it’s great!
For me, being a curvy hooper means that I quite feel right in my skin. I’m self-conscious all the time. I’m getting less self-conscious when I hoop, but it’s been a slow process. I’m learning not care what other people think of what I’m doing how I look. That’s what I was trying to convey in the video.
So, no matter who you are, there is only one YOU out there and you are special no matter your size.
Yay! I have my portable hard drive today!
Here’s one of the videos I took in my parking lot on Monday after it was plowed. The song is “Pompeii” by Bastille. I shot it on my GoPro Hero4 Silver.
I’m quite proud of this one! To me, I’m dancing with pure joy because I’m outside and doing something I love after a few days of being cooped up inside.
