Dancing Machine

A student recently told me about a Wii game called Just Dance. Since one of my toughest struggles of motherhood is finding the time to get exercise into the routine I am contemplating the purchase. It seems fun and there are no additional parts or pieces needed. We have a Wii that is collecting dust that I would love to use more but I am not sure I want to make another purchase that would ultimately also just sit there and collect dust. On the other hand, a dance game very well could be answer. To be clear, at least for my own conscience. It's not like I get home and sit on my tush all night. Most nights I don't even sit at all until I fall into bed. We are an on the go family.

I have also committed to running a 5K in the Fall. I have never run more than a mile in my life and I am not sure how to pull that off. Eliot has promised to train with me and that is our summer goal. And a good friend sent me a yoga dvd which I haven't even gotten a chance to crack open. Sigh.


May 1, I am making a re-commitment to health and exercise. I am ordering that game, right now! Dance Sista Dance!

  1. Go for it! We pooled money as a fraternity chapter to buy a copy of Just Dance 2 as soon as it came out, and it turned out to be a great investment. Not only is it always a hit at parties, but after dancing for thirty minutes straight you really FEEL like you've been doing a workout. I would recommend the sequel because it has a tandem mode that would let you do dance duets with Eliot. (They're super fun. Each partner has different moves that go together to make one routine.) Plus Lydia would like watching you dance. The colors and the music and seeing you having fun would all be exciting.
