Dancing my way into my skinny jeans!


OK I have decided to try a new approach to exercise. Don't laugh...but I am dancing my way to better fitness. I have traditionally been treadmill girl, but the results just haven't been what i was looking for, plus I hated every minute of it.


So one day while playing on the XBOX 360 with the girls we decided to throw in Dance Dance Revolution. The next thing I knew two hours had gone by & I was a sweaty mess. It was super fun.


So pretty much everyday for the last month I have been getting up early to dance. Since it is a game I keep wanting to beat another level or my last score or whatever the challenge is. So the hour just flies by. The best part is I am losing weight...woo hoo.


So you may laugh, but I will be laughing all the way into my skinny jeans!!

Love Love this game, when my stepson lived with us, he would go to hte local amusement park to play this game (before it was out on all systems ...lol) When i would pick him up he was a sweaty mess and i always asked why he said the same thing he had to beat his best score .. i tried to convince him it was exercise but he would not go for it ... ahead 8 years he agrees it is exercise and he doesn't do it as often!

I wanna play too! I am dancing my way into skinny jeans too. I've been doing Zumba - fun, fun, fun! I'll have to look into Dance Dance Revolution, I'm sure my girls would love it too!

That's great! I have been trying to do the treadmill everyday, which is sheer torture to me...maybe I will try your exercise routine. My daughter has a WII, I will have to check into whether the Dance Revolution is available.
