Usually, Xbox time is the kids' Papa time. (Papa = my husband) But yesterday I decided we needed some family time, so we put in this gem:
For those not familiar with the game, it's pretty simple. You pick a song and then you imitate the dancers on screen. The more accurate your movements, the more points you get. Whoever gets the most points, wins.
As I mentioned when I talked about the kickboxing dvd, I'm not always very coordinated and sometimes have trouble following along when movements are fast paced. You'd think, then, that I would be terrible at this game. Well, yes. And no. It's unfairly easy to "win" when playing against a 4 year old and a 6 year old. Though, to be fair, I did also beat my husband, so maybe I'm not as uncoordinated as I think. LOL
After an hour or so of playing, I was exhausted and sweaty. It also dawned on me that I'd just done more cardio playing with my kids than I had done doing my actual exercise dvd earlier. I made the comment to my husband that it was a good workout, and he pointed out to me that there's actually a portion of the game that is set up to BE a workout.
Even though I didn't specifically set a New Year's Resolution this year, I'm starting to realize that what I really want to promise myself is that I'm just going to move more.
After all, I like to move it, move it. Do you?
