Salads and a 2 and a half kilo hula hoop!

Salads and a 2 and a half kilo hula hoop!

This weekend was our towns food festival, which myself, my partner and his two girls always look forward too. It a a chance for me to eat Gluten Free food I have never had before, which is always exciting. This year I treated myself to one of those fancy desserts that have fruit and flowers on top! 😃

Generally though, I ate ok, seeing as it was his eldests 12th birthday.

This week I'll make up for the extra calories with summer salads now the weather is better, and a 5k walk everyday with the dog.

I have also brought a 2.5kg hulahoop, which really leaves a bruise! But you can definitely feel it working.

Well, I just thought I'd 'check in' ;)

The lunch is raw grated carrot,parsnip, courgette and onion, with baby spinach and a little bit of leftover chickpea curry. Oh, and the wraps are homemade thin pancake style ones. Gf flour, water and eggs!

Hope to have another loss this week!

Looks delicious wish I could hula hoop but no matter how hard I try I can't do it any tips much appreciated.

A weighted one is much easier - and finding which way is easier for you, I cannot hulahoop left/ anti clockwise for example 😂 I think standing with you feet wider apart is easier when you begin!

I'm sure there are lots of helpful videos on YouTube! Just keep at it! :)

I had a ordinary hollow one so maybe I should get a weighted one and try that never thought about you tube even though I use it for other stuff. Happy hoola hooping👍

I can't hulahoop with an ordinary one either! I think they are smaller in circumference, too - so definitely give it a go!

Thankyou, I think if I could actually do it I would enjoy that type of activity so you have encouraged me and I will be off to get one after answering on here as I need to up the exercise now. Will let you know how it pans out. I feel so positive now something to look forward to trying. Thank you for the idea👍😊
