Dancing is a form of exercise.. and boy is it fun!

Dancing the night away is the way to a healthy and fit bod! Who knew?

Did you ever think of dancing as a form of exercise? I know that there are video's out there called "dance your a** off" and "dance your body slim" but who actually owns those videos? No one I know.

This past Saturday we had an event called "Go Prom" where we got to put on our party dresses and enjoy a fun night out. Back track to Saturday morning... I was thinking of things I would want to do to fill my 60 min. of exercise- I really didn't want to do anything since my body was still sore from the previous days of working out. But none the less, I took Sadie (my dog) for a walk and joined my husband for a short game of tennis. Check and check! My 60 minutes were complete. But boy was I in for a surprise!

As we entered Go Realty, a disco ball was hanging from the ceiling and DJ equipment lined the walls. A total transformation from the cool, hip real estate company we are! Anyway, getting to the point (promise)... It started out as a social event- people chatting it up all along the sides... and then BAM- Jim and his wife did an AWESOME dance- more or less it was spectacular! Breaking the ice.. I think so! Everyone joined the dance floor shaking left and right.. jumping up and down.. waving hands in the air. It was a good two hours before I left the group of dancers and boy was I sweaty and tired. I thought.. WOW.. I wasn't counting down the minutes to when I could stop (like I regularly do on the treadmill or the eliptical). I was having FUN- and exercising all at the same time. Can I tell you the next morning I was sore from head to toe, sore muscles I didn't even know I had.

Moral of the story- exercise is not just the treadmill or tennis- it is anything that gets you to be active.. Exercise can be fun- and it was that night for me. Find something fun that keeps you active and you won't be disappointed!

Check in the next few days to see my progress!
