So a very inspiring spark friend of mine does these awesome vlogs.
Hint, cough, ANGELWENDYMAMA, cough, hint.
Great dance party videos and hooping and things that really inspire and motivate to get you moving too! I love them but I admit I don't have a video camera to do my own, not to mention I just don't have the courage to do them. Way to go girl!
However! I started thinking... Hey, Why not!?!
I admittedly did not want to be anything more than be a couch potato today. I wanted to just lay like vegetables. I wanted to over utilize my large posterior all friggin day long. I guess, I could have just said... I didn't wanna do anything but what's the fun in that?
Anyway, Thanks to my lovely friend JUST-DUCKY, (Also, my partner in the 28 day bootcamp challenge), I was able to get off my bootay and did our video of the day. Day #11 done! WooHoo!
Which in turn got my blood pumping and gave me that bit of umph we all need sometimes to workout or even just to do some housework. I strapped on that good ole reliable ipod of mine and started doing some dishes. Long before I even knew it I was shaking "IT" like a mad woman as I scrubbed. I was having myself a little dance party while getting a chore done! How awesome is that?!?
I finished the ominous work of doing 5 days (yeah, I've been slacking, I know) of pots, pans, casseroles and dishes all the while moving my voluptuous rear end to the music. When I turned off the water however, the shake didn't leave my rattling rolls. Ha!
I cranked up the tunes and danced. I know dancing is my favorite, I mean, FAVORITE form of cardio, then why don't I do it more often? Because it isn't as easy as it used to be when I was younger, that's why. Also, if you are anything like me, you probably don't really want to do it in front of others either. Nevertheless, it is still my favorite!
So why not? If you get 5, 10, 15, 20 or more minutes to yourself. Why not? No one will be around to judge. No one will see you sweat and pant and be a fool. Dance like a fool! Have fun! Let loose! And you will lose!
So, if you love music like I do. If you even like to sway a little to that music. Then, I say, Throw yourself your own little dance party.
(Maybe no chocolate or maybe, just a very, ity bity small piece because it is just that good (and okay in moderation!)
The point is in the above quote is...
It's okay to laugh at yourself. To have fun. To live it up. To shake it up.
Get busy! Move! Live! Dance!!!
Oh and here are the songs that I danced to after I did the dishes... I wasn't paying attention till then. When I was just having myself, my own private dance party...
