Okay..I have to admit something. I’m a total nerd when it comes to new technology that can help or track my workouts. I was recently searching online while Christmas shopping and found that the new Just Dance 4 game was out for Wii!!! I have the original Just Dance and the Michael Jackson dance game…both are frickin’ hilarious to play by myself or with friends. Speaking of friends…I actually have a friend named Michael Jackson and it was hilarious to watch him play that game once at one of our parties 🙂
I got in the mood to play a Wii dance game so I started out with my MJ game and rocked out to some Billie Jean and Thriller. Keep in mind, I’m the world’s worst dancer so this wasn’t a pretty site 🙂 I don’t care though. It was FUN! Before I started, I put on my heart rate monitor ( yep…I told you I was a tech geek) because I was curious to see if it was a good workout. Well…I danced around with Michael Jackson for 27 minutes and burned 200 calories!
Then….I had to run to Target to get a couple things and what do you know….I somehow managed to swing by the electronics department and buy myself the new Just Dance 4 game 🙂
I ran home and popped it in the Wii and got right to work. My poor Dobermans had no idea what was going on! They had never seen Mommy move like that!
It was so much fun I can’t wait to “play” it again.
Even though I can’t dance, it was still fun to try and it raised my heart rate for SURE!!!
I burned another 500 calories playing Just Dance 4…that’s a total of 700 calories burned by just rockin’ out to some fun tunes and dancing like a total idiot.
Have you ever played Just Dance before? If so, did you like it?
Besides dancing around like a fool lately, I have been keeping busy with concentrating on lifting HEAVY this winter and light cardio. I don’t like how I’m not as lean as I was in the summer, but I do understand what it takes to put on more muscle…which isn’t always as cute in the winter 😉
And I’ve been eating clean with my shakes. I haven’t been 100% clean though…I need to get a little more strict.
Here’s a new recipe I’ve been hooked on lately…
Orange Dreamsicle Shake Recipe
Just blend everything together and enjoy 🙂 It seriously tastes like a dreamsicle and feels like a cheat! YUM!
I also got to try out my new Handful Bra last night. The lovely people at Handful let me try out a couple of their bras. It was adorable, super comfortable and gave me some extra padding!! I totally love mine! Luckily, you have a chance to win one of these bras in my Challenge, starting January 1st!!! Don’t forget to join my challenge group HERE if you want in on the challenge 🙂
Alright, I’m off to watch the Miss Universe pageant! Have a great night 🙂
