When I first began hula hooping I loved it because it was such a fun and artful activity. There is no doubt that hula hooping can really make exercise something to look forward to. In my own experience it wasn’t until I had my second baby that I discovered the benefits of hula hooping for weight loss. After giving birth to my second child, I hula hooped daily for 20 minutes for a few weeks and made it a priority to not miss a day of hooping.
I found that hula hooping in the morning was the best time for me to gain momentum whilst everyone else in the house where still in bed. I made it a mission that despite the lack of sleep or obstacles of having a new born, I would make time to hula hoop daily. Not only did I hula hoop in the mornings but some days when the mornings got away from me, i would make sure that i would hula hoop at night time whilst watching my favourite Netflix series.
It wasn’t until month 2 into hula hooping daily that I drastically noticed that I was on my way to strengthening my core again and noticing that my waist was definitely getting slimmer. After having my second baby, I realised that I had developed muscle separation of the abdominal muscles which meant that I wasn’t able to do stomach crunches or any hardcore abdominal muscle training right away.
During this season post-pregnancy, hula hooping was my saviour! Quickly I had noticed that the kilos started to drop as I also tweaked my eating habits eliminating sugar and lowering my carbohydrate intake.
I found that hula hooping for at least 30 minutes a day not only helped me loose the extra kilos that I was carrying as well as slim my waist but It also helped my posture. Eight months on I had lost 10 kilos which brought me back to my original weight before having children.
Not only did hula hooping daily help me slim my waist back to what it was before children, but it also got me into a healthy routine of making sure that I dedicated 30 minutes to myself only, which is such a great way to rejuvenate so that I can be the best mum, friend, wife that I can be.
It is no surprise that by hula hooping each day I can surely witness that my waist line is tighter and that hula hooping can definitely help with slimming down your waist and tone your tummy in a fun way which will never get boring.
