Do I still have time to lose another inch on my waistline for coming Chinese New Year? We have another 2.5 weeks to go and I am pressured to trim my waistline further to fit nicely in my new cheongsam. Well, I guess I have to keep hooping!
Here's a picture of my 4th child. My previous blog post was 2.5 years ago. My pregnancy journey with baby Kristen was a rough one. Having said that, being the mummy to my 4 beautiful kids is one of my greatest joy.
We have new value packs to help expedite tummy trimming. Check out our Tummy-Trim Packs that comes with with Slimming Waistband at 50% OFF! This is no ordinary waistband, it comes with special natural minerals to help increase blood circulation and helps in fats burning.
We will be out of town for Chinese New Year for 5 days (26-31 January). Hence, there won't be any delivery services until we return to Singapore.
I wish you Happy Chinese New Year!
Ever wonder why you don’t see any more improvement on your waistline? You have been working out regularly with your hula hoop, and begin to feel discouraged and think that hula hooping is not for you anymore. Your sign of boredom with hula hooping is a POSITIVE indication that your waistline is ready for greater challenge. Spice up your hula hoop routine by increasing the hoop’s weight or get another new hula hoop texture for a new hooping experience.
Increasing hoop’s weight will tone and build up your core muscles. Increasing muscle mass means burning more fats around your waistline. Sounds great, isn’t it?
Working out with various hula hoop models (mixture of magnetic hoop and foam hoop) will definitely spice up your hula hooping regime. Magnetic hoops have magnetic bumps that increase massaging effects around your waistline. These magnetic bumps increase blood circulation directly on your waistline. Foam hoops has rounder and smaller tube, which helps in defining your waistline. Hoop 5-10 minutes on each hula hoop model, you can easily clock in 15-20 minutes of a great hula hoop workout! Remember to always hoop clock-wise and anti-clockwise. This helps even out muscle tone from both sides of your waist.
I would like to share with you about an inspiring lady I met through HulaHoopSingapore.com. Her name is Doris and she's definitely a hula hoop enthusiast. She has been working out with hula hoop for many years. Check out her body. Doris is in her 60’s and still looking GREAT! Her tummy is flat despite having 3 kids. I am very encouraged and inspired with her hula hooping regime. She travels with her hoops too.
And yes, that’s me with 24 weeks pregnant. Wish I could hula hoop…. I guess not another few months after baby arrives.
I have been receiving many emails asking which is the correct hula hoop for them. I guess HulaHoopSingapore is spoiling you with too many hula hoop options. I hope this article helps.
What will you expect to see if you start hula hooping now? You will definitely see a curvier waistline, stronger back and abs. Hula hooping is a great exercising equipment during your busy times, when you are caught up with work, family or bad weather. Hula hooping may be your first step in exercising. It is convenient, and you will love it that you own one at home. You can exercise anywhere and anytime. 5 minutes a day of hula hooping is better than not exercising at all.
Here are some guidelines in selecting a preferred hula hoop. Ask yourself these questions to scope down your ideal hula hoop.
If you still have more questions about our weighted hula hoop, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to hear from you.
Does size really matter to you? What do you think? The answer is a resounding YES! I am not referring to how muscular you are, how big your house is or how fat your paycheck it. But, the serving portion of your meal/snacks. For the past few months, I have been trying to reach my pre-wedding weight. It doesn’t really seem far, it’s about 5kg away. Unfortunately, the journey is surely a long and tough one for the little weight I was about to lose.
I tried assessing my eating habits.
Am I eating healthy? Yes, I am.
Am I exercising regularly? Yes, I am. 3-5 times a week.
Now, back to basics. How much HEALTHY FOOD do I really eat every day? I munch on nuts instead of chips. Isn’t that healthy? The culprit lies in the portion of serving size. I can eat a "small" bowl of it. Whereas the recommended serving size is just a palm full. A palm full will be about 10-12 small nuts. Frequency, recommended ONCE a day. But, I can munch on the nuts throughout the day! How wrong is that?!!! (*smile)
I lower my carb intake and increase protein in-take. Where is the source of protein? I am a lover of roast pork belly. That’s it. Another culprit that sabotaged my weight loss program. I am consuming more fats than protein. The proportion is not there.
The list can go on. The way food is prepared matters too. Deep fried or air fried makes a difference. Perhaps you may want to take some time to assess your eating habits and serving portion. The simple principle applies, what goes in and what comes out. Less goes in, less comes out.
Since we started our online shop last year end, one of the popular hula hoop in our store is WH001 Wavy Foam 1.2kg. I bet by now, you are very used to your hoop. Or even question yourself, "is this hoop working for me???". This is a good sign. This simply means your back, waist, tummy and leg muscles are ready for greater challenge. To encourage the "not-so-newbies" to step up your hula hoop workout, we are offering 20% off on hoops for advanced users (hoops weighing 1.8kg on onwards) and 10% off for intermediate users (hoops weighing 1.4kg - 1.5kg).
We have a new magnetic hoop (WH003) that provides good massage on your torso. It has big massaging balls, comes with magnet on each massage bumps to improve blood circulation as your twirl. The total weight of the hoop is 1.7kg. This is suitable for advanced users.
If you are bored working out with your single hula hoop, try hooping with different hoop weight and texture. Foam hoops and magnetic hoop is a good match for one working session. Try exercising your arms while hooping. Do tricep/bicep curls with light weight dumbbells (0.5kg -1.0kg) or wrist weights.
Happy exploring and be creative with your hula hoop workout.
Here are 3 hoops which I find them interesting. First is the "Water Bottle Hoop", with adjustable weight using a water container (first hoop in Picture 1). You can fill water into the blue bottle to adjust the weight to increase the centrifugal force. I am not able to hoop smoothly with this. So, I will strike this hoop out.
The 2nd creative hoop which I would like to highlight; pink&grey balls hula ring (Picture 1). It claims to help slim down waistline effectively and quickly. Unfortunately, I am not able to twirl for 3 decent rounds. Since I couldn't twirl it, I don't think it's a good choice to bring them in.
The 3rd hoop I find intriguing; the red&black hoop with wheels (Picture 2). I like how it massages my torso as I twirl with it. The material is hard and strong. Beware if it falls on your toes or any parts of your leg. I tried stopping it from dropping to the floor with my shin… and ouch! And I mean “OUCH!!!”.
