"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?
Your comments are highly appreciated.

In a survey done in 2011 just before the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, nearly all American adults said that they remembered exactly where they were and what they were doing the moment they heard the news of the attacks.
Even though I am not American, I can exactly remember what I was doing. I was preparing for a history test in my room when my grandfather came and told me "America is under attack.". I can still remember the terrible feeling while watching the news on TV.
So today on the 16th anniverversary of the attacks let us take a minute to commemorate those lost on that day and let us spread peace and love. Violance and terrorism should never be the answer.
