Just Dance 2014

Once upon a time there was a girl who liked to go for walks. It has always been her favorite and easiest form of exercise.

She tries to walk at least every other day. One day recently was one such day, but two things got in her way: 1) Rain, and 2) She had spent all morning talking to her friend on her cell phone and the battery was nearly dead, so she would not have it to listen to music on. She NEEDS to be able to listen to music while she exercises!

She needed to get her exercise in soon because it was already past noon, her peanut butter toast fuel was going to wear off AND her kids had early release from school.....

What to do, what to do?

Aha! Just Dance!

Not only would she get the cardio workout she needed, but there is music BUILT IN.


(I need to stop talking about myself in the third person now.)

So get this: Just Dance 2014has a feature called "Just Sweat". It's where you can select 10, 20 or 40 minutes worth of continuous music to get a good cardio workout to.

And lemme tell ya, it's a good workout!

Even though I completely suck at doing the dances, my heart rate increased and I got good and sweaty.

I thought my darling 13 year old daughter would love to do this with me, but after a few tries, she started chickening out. Guess why. She was being too self-conscious!

I mean, it is pretty embarrassing how completely awful it may turn out that you are at dancing, but c'mon! It's FUN!

Here, I'll show you. At the end of each dance, the game gives you a fast-play snippet of "your best moves". I'm going to show you one of mine, but you have to promise not to LOL at me too much, K?

(There is an option to share these video snippets, but I wasn't connected to Xbox Live,
so I took a video of my video. Be quiet.)

Are you done laughing at me? Seriously, that's enough now.

I don't play video games. Like, at all. This is different. I know just enough about how to work the Xbox to play Just Dance. That's all you need to get some good exercise, or simply have some silly fun!

One more thing: my husband managed to shake his booty to a song. That's huge!
