  M HulaHoopla
 an, I have got to get back to my Bootcamp work- outs. It’s been a little over a year now since I’ve been to my classes and, although they’ve been
conducting Zoom and YouTube sessions, I could never mo- tivate myself to exercise alone and in front of a camera. And although they started to open for in-person training, the last thing I want to do is burpees while wearing a mask.
Sure, all excuses. I know. But I just haven’t had the personal motivation that I enjoyed a year ago. My trainers and workout partners, all of whom I consider friends, have been trying to get me to come back. I’m pretty sure I eventually will, it’s just that I first need to get back to a reasonable starting point since I’ve put on at least 25 pounds and lost significant muscle mass.
Some of my motivation of late has been whenever I open the Sunday Honolulu Star-Advertiser obituary/memorial sec- tion, and I see a rather large proportion of individuals who have passed that are around my age of 62! Not saying they were out of shape, but certainly there were health issues con- tributing to their demise.
                                             I have also been inspired by my wife. She has an incredible amount of discipline, having kick-started her own fitness plan that she established a few years ago. Every day, rain or shine, she jumps on her treadmill. She also does some strength train- ing with weights. This is all on top of her physical workday, and I am amazed by the great shape she is in.
        Recently, she added a new exercise to her regimen — a weighted hula hoop! She says it’s good for the core and great for cardio. Truth be told, I was making fun of her because, in my mind, there’s no way that doing a hula hoop is going to get you in shape. Remember Shake Weights? I rest my case.
        Still, she would simply roll her eyes at me and chase me out of the room. One evening, she was in the kitchen on the phone with her sister. I went to our bedroom to get something when I saw the hula hoop leaning against our dresser. I silently shut the door and got into the hula hoop start position. I was going to settle this once and for all and like a wobbly gyroscope spun the hoop around my waist. I must have looked like the ugliest belly dancer in the world when the hoop flew out of control. I knocked everything off our dresser, including a ceramic statue of Jesus that belonged to my wife’s mother.
              My wife came running into the room, exclaiming, “Ron, what the ...?” I was standing in a pile of dresser rubble con- sisting of a lamp, a jewelry tree and assorted trinkets, a TV remote and, of course, Jesus (miraculously undamaged).
    I looked at her and said, “You’re right! My core has never felt better!”
