I recently got my daughter the Just Dance 3 game for Xbox Kinect. Since she's only 3, I have to turn on the songs for her so she could dance. I usually do this while doing other chores. A few days ago, I decided to play along with her.
OH MY GOODNESS!
Talk about a workout! I almost didn't make it through one song. ONE! ONE 3 MINUTE SONG! This is not ok. Since then, I've been playing along with her and sometimes play even longer than she does.
This afternoon, I took a break from chores to dance one song with her and ended up playing for an hour. HELL YEAH! I'm getting better (as far as stamina, not coordination...)
Just Dance 3 has definitely become part of my weight loss journey. I need to make it a habit and do it every evening.
I'm also thinking of getting Zumba for kinect. I don't have a whole lot of time to head to the gym being a single parent but that shouldn't be a reason for me to not work out. I think this has been something that I've struggled to get over. I need to make the time. I need my daughter to see that I'm taking time to take care of myself so she develops that habit as well.
Well, speaking of my daughter, I do need to sign off so that we can eat dinner.
In my next post, I will lay out a more detailed action plan for everything.
