I’ve never considered myself a dancer at all. In fact, I’m a pretty terrible dancer. I have no sense of rhythm and can be rather clumsy at times. My sister and I would have occasional dance parties in our bedroom when we were growing up, but that was pretty much the extent of my dancing. Our dancing mostly consisted of being big goofballs and just having a good time. Looking back, now I realize that being goofy and laughing was the best part of it all! Who cares if I was “on rhythm” or did moves correctly? Apparently I cared at the time, but now I could care less.
I danced it up at our wedding, and I probably looked ridiculous, but I was having a fun time and that’s all that mattered to me.
I got Just Dance 3 on the Wii for Christmas this past year, and I was obsessed for the first few weeks I had it. It has fun songs, always puts me in a good mood, and gets me movin’!
As the weeks went by after Christmas, I put Just Dance to the wayside and forgot about it until just this week. I’ve been brainstorming some fun low intensity workouts that I can do, and my Just Dance game came to mind. The game has a “Just Sweat It” option that I decided to try out. I made a goal for myself to acquire so many ‘sweat points’ each day this week. It always puts a smile on my face and gives me a fun and low-key workout, so I thought it’d be a good thing to incorporate into my exercise regimen.
Since I’ve been dancin’ it up the past few days, I remembered how great of a workout dancing can be. That being said, your workout for Trainer Tuesday this week incorporates lots of dancing!
Ok, now go bust a move! Have a great day!
