Been definitely adding in those minutes. It helps that it has been C-O-L-D and I've had buses run late. Dancing like a loon at the bus stops helps me stay warm. emoticon

Had some fun tonight with this one:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoHECVnQC7A

A fond childhood memory is of playing LPs (vinyl records - Long Playing) with the entire William Tell Overture. When we got to the finale, we would spin ourselves utterly and completely dizzy. If it was warm enough and no one complained, we would turn the volume up and go out in the front yard to gallop around to the sound of it.

Dancing can be done to even classical music. There's some great pieces by Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Bach, and more which are lively and fun to move to.

DECEMBER
A

Dance your way through December! Your challenge is to dance at least 50 minutes a week - or 10 minutes a day, at least 5 days. If you get your heartrate up doing so and dance at least 10 minutes, you can count it as cardio! For the purpose of the challenge, though, all I ask is that you have fun in an active way.

Many songs are only 3-5 minutes long, but if you dance to two or three, you can create a 10 minute mini-cardio workout that can be done just about anywhere. Even better, you can have fun.

There is no requirement that you dance well. Two left feet can still move.

There is no need to be coordinated or skilled at dance. Just enjoy music.

There is no need for an audience or anyone around to know. Close the blinds, the door, if you wish.

You can dance even if you are wheelchair bound due to an injury. Move those arms vigorously and your heart rate will rise. (Okay, so if you're down and out with a bad back it might be tough, but tap a foot or a finger and imagine yourself up and dancing when you feel better!)

You could even make it a mini-ST workout picking out a few bodyweight exercises or using dumbbells (or cans of food or bottles of water) by doing repetitions to the beat - 1,2 on the way up, 3,4 on the way down.

If you love holiday songs, use those. If you hate them, use your favorite hits from whatever era.

(Here's a list of some songs to start with - these are ones I had found and posted for my Onyx Outlaws BLC team.) Pick a decade or do them all.

Post some songs here for all of us to dance to! (NOTE: When posting a link, use the Add A Link button, but make sure to remove the http:// so it starts with www.)
