Kate....I'm so sorry...I just saw your question now.
The hoop was 15 dollars.
At first I thought, oh dear, Ive been ripped off..there's something wrong with it, it wont hoola and it wont hoop! But, my youngest daughter can work it beautifully. So, I've just got to work at it until I get the movement right. Meanwhile, my daughter thinks it's pretty hilarious to watch.
Had a biggish walk tonight. Dvd store and back. It's about 25 minutes there, 25 back. But I probably should do a daytime walk of about 2 hours somewhere, tomorrow. Either that, or go swimming.
