Our First Lady Michelle Obama Can Hoop!
Isn't she lovely, isn't she incredible! To see our First Lady hula hooping has put a smile on many faces and encourages fitness at any age!
The First Lady held a "Healthy Kids" event on the White House South Lawn with about 100 kids and parents from local elementary schools on Wednesday, promoting exercise and healthy eating. With child obesity being a serious problem and concern in this country, we commend the White House for giving this issue their attention. Our children are really into video games and computers and many don't get the physical exercise they need. Seeing the First Lady in such great physical shape inspires adults and kids of like to get out and become more active and physical. Now this is change we can use, in the midst of the healthcare battle, this event reminds us of the importance of maintaing health with preventive measures like exercise and nutrition while having tons of fun!
By the way, the First Lady ran an obstacle course, jumped rope and hula hooped an incredible 142 swivels before her hula hoop hit the ground.
