I did this challenge and have done it for several days now. I love to dance that's what I use to do back in the day. Go out with friends and just danced until the music was over.

That is Awesome the dancing with hubby, I need something to help get my husband up and losing with me and you are an inspiration :) keep up the good work and thanks for sharing. He tells me he wants to lose weight to but hasn't taken the first step so I just throw in a healthy meal or little things here and there. But I know he has to make the choice too.

Took the wife dancing for New Years Eve, in the living room. Wii, Just Dance. Danced to... Girls just want to have fun, Womanizer, and Eye of the Tiger for a little extra motivator. Good challenge for going into a weekend. Lots of fun. Hope we see this one again. emoticon

That was fun. We broke out the Wii and used our daughters "Just Dance" disk. We did:

This was a great daily challenge for me. Santa brought me Dance Central (video game) and I've been a dancing fool since Christmas day. emoticon
I danced to Lady Gaga's Poker face for 20 mins today.. it sounds crazy, but the song has different levels, easy, med, and hard. I finally feel comfortable doing the hard level on this song.
Yah for dancing!!!!

I love dancing, I try to dance almost everyday and the pounds are falling off me - lost 21 lbs since 1st November.

Did 35 mins today: Just Dance (Lady Gaga), Remedy (Little Boots), Evacuate the Dance Floor (Cascada), No Good Advice (Girls Aloud), Don't Cha (Pussy Cat Dolls), Tik Tok (Keisha), Jai Ho! (A R Rahman & The Pussy Cat Dolls), Respectable (Mel & Kim), Just Can't Get Enough (Saturdays), Up (Saturdays).

If you like more modern stuff, "Up" is a really great song by a relatively new UK group, full of very positive lyrics. I usually finish with it because it leaves me on such a high.

This is basically what I have been doing this winter because I refuse to walk in the cold/inversions outside. I dance around my living room like a fool. I try to balance my movements, if I kick in one direction, I try to kick in the other. I wave my arms around like an idiot and then wave them the other way. Hey, I work up a sweat doing this and although I'm certain that if anyone could see me they would probably laugh themselves into cardiac arrest, it works for me.

Awesome challenge...so easy to do for me, since I love to dance around the house while housecleaning.

My two songs are Tonight I'm Loving You by Enrique Eglesias. It's a great cha-cha song! hehe and Only Girl (In the World) by Rihanna.

Our cable company has the "Music Choice" channels. and I had it on "Solid Gold Oldies" this morning when I read this particular challenge. Of course I immidiately got up and started dancing. Once I got started I figured I'd just do a full 1/2 hour. Those old songs really get my tose tapping. even sitting in my chair at the computer I move to the music. Some of the songs that were on were:
Cupid--Sam Brown
Little Devil--Neil Sedaka (Love his stuff)
Oh Pretty Woman--Roy Orbison.
I Know a Place--Petula Clark

This channel keeps me going while I'm doing housework and all sorts of distateful things.

Great Challenge, and It gives me an I dea for getting my cardio in when the weather is not getoutable like this morning, or when I'm really pressed for time. I'm alreadt at home so I don't have to get dressed to even walk around the block.
