Completed Mini-Challenges

Weeks 1 to 4

Dance for 30 minutes; at least 4 times a week

Guidelines:
Just put on some music that is somewhat fast paced (something that gets your heart pumping) and start dancing like no one is watching. You can easily make up your own moves to the beat, lift your legs, be silly, mock the song, just keep on moving for 30 minutes, take water breaks if you must, but this will surely add a variation of cardio and fun to your routine

Got the Wii Let's Dance
I've done it once alone and tried to get hubby to do it. He was a real sourpuss and refused to dance. :( Said it was weird. I've danced twice so far this week once to Wii and once to Madonna ...

Just ordered Wii "Just Dance"
If you want, you can go on youtube.com and look up Zumba or even some other dancing exercises till you Wii dancing comes in. Thats what I did.

Zumba
Wow. Zumba really kicked my butt today. I wanted to do an hour and I was sweating so much and felt it so much that I had to stop 20 minutes into it. I am gonna try and do some more after I eat lunch.
