Just Dance

*Brenda Novak's For the Cure page on this blog has been updated! Check out the goodies I'm offering this year!*
As soon as I walked out the door yesterday, it started raining--HARD. The weather front had moved in. So what’s a girl to do when she can’t have her morning walkies?
She just dances . .  . Just Dance 4, that is, more accurately, Just Sweat.
My kidlet wanted this Wii game after she spent the night at a friend’s house and they played it for hours. On the non-swimming weekends, she’ll get up and start playing. I can’t complain too much, since she’s getting some exercise.
So once I tweaked the avatar my daughter made for me, I scrolled through the just sweat lists. My only complaint about this game is that the Just Sweat had times of 10-, 45-, 60-minute segments. What happened to 30 minutes? Or even 20 minutes?
I might not be the crispest cookie in the box, but I did know enough to realize doing the 45 or 60 minutes would be a bad thing. I might walk every day, but that doesn’t mean the rest of my muscles are ready for the big time.  
In the end, I danced to a variety of music in 10 minute aerobics intervals--five of them-salsa, punk, 80’s, cardio rock, and another one I can’t remember.
Erm, yes, I’m sore.
Though I’m a klutz much of the time, my old aerobics training came in handy as I was getting some of the moves down. If I couldn’t coordinate my feet, then I just kept them moving while I concentrated on the arm movements. Many times I was slightly behind the moves, so I didn’t score as well as I could have.
But I did score in the way that counted--I exercised for an hour and had fun on a rainy day.
What do you do on yucky days?
Later, Peeps!

I still don't have the Wii connected to the new TV. Will have to do that. I loved Zumba and belly dancing, so think I'll enjoy Just Dance too.

I'll probably stay in and dance today again, due to the strong winds. I really, really hate walking in the wind.
