I was recently in between boot camps because, well I wanted a break from the massive attacks on my muscles and I needed to plan out all of my LivingSocial and Groupon fitness vouchers juuuust right.
So one morning I decided to try and work out on my own. Yeah, that didn't go well at all. I'm just not the kind of person that can get up and go for a run (BARF!) or go to the gym and get an effective, well-rounded workout. In fact, why should I have to think about this stuff when I can buy fitness vouchers and PAY professionals to do it for me?
Right. This is what the homies and I call #ChampagneProblems (but that's neither here nor there).
About the only thing I am guaranteed to do on my own and get a decent calorie burn going is dance. It was my first love- before books!- and I can never get enough. If you're like me and lack that desire to go out and self-direct a workout session, just clear some space in your living room and shake a tail feather or four.
Here are some tunes to get you started:
The little boy in this video, Baby Boogaloo... I wanna be him when I grow up!
Yeah, I know, Chris beat up Rihanna. But can I help it if this song makes my booty shake?
I can't remember if Amerie had any other hits right now, but whatever, this one is always a club crowd-pleaser.
Classic Janet. I wonder how many folks busted their collective asses trying that little chair trick?
I will forever and always adore this Missy song above all others. Always!
I can't have a dance mix without some Soca Jams! This one makes me "chook it" all over the place :)
Shakira's latest album is chock-full of dance tunes; this one is my favorite.
Classic merengue is good for working those obliques if you dance it just right!
Yes, I like a Don Omar song. BUSTED! (actually, I like more than one. SHHH!)
Really, though, if this song doesn't make you dance like no one is watching, there's something wrong with you!
