This weekend I loaded up on fun fitness finds. I would share them all with you at once, but I’m going to use the little bit of restraint I have and wait to share them with you throughout the week.
So here’s my first fun fitness find, which I actually just can’t shut up about.
This weekend, my manfriend decided it was time for a new Xbox and a Kinect. I’m not too into video sports…
But I am into dancing.
After hooking up the XBox and tearing into the Just Dance 3 case, I just danced…and danced…and danced. My manfriend had to cut me off before I collapsed into a sweaty mess. The songs are so fun (hello, LMFAO, Beyonce and Katy Perry), you don’t even notice that you’re sweating up a storm and getting in a workout while you’re learning dance moves that are sure to impress. The game even has a “sweat” setting that takes you through a booty shaking workout session.
Last but not least, Kinect doesn’t require controllers since it tracks your body movements through a camera component. Not having to hold frees me to bust a move and really limits the amount of bodily harm I can inflict upon others in the room. Trust me, I’ve done some damage with a Wii controller.
So after all of that vivid description, you must be wondering what I looked like when I played the game.
Well if you want a visual, my dance moves are pretty much akin to this….
Ha. Kidding. That’s my sister.
It looks like the grace, composure and rhythm gene missed a generation, because I look like this….
Note 1: Sorry about the video quality! My iPhone was being uncooperative.
Note 2: Don’t judge me on my outfit choice. I’ve had those shorts since 5th grade and they were the first thing I saw when I ripped into my drawer yesterday after sprinting home in in an effort to get to Just Dancing as fast as possible.
Shameless? Yes. But I’ll do anything for you. Happy Tuesday!
