New Year's Resolutions

Posted by dom on December 31st, 2007 — Posted in Tips

Did you make resolutions for the new year? “Lose weight” has never worked for me and “lose 5 pounds” sort of backfired when I lost 5 and gained 15! So this year, I’ve gone for a different sort of resolution.

Dance more.

Losing weight is a question of changing your lifestyle and there’s no question that I’ve become much more sedentary as time goes on.

I like to boogie when no one can see me although it’s not something I have ever thought of as “exercise”. But why not? I mean, a good track (especially something from my teen years) can have me bouncing all over the room and panting for breath at the end of it.

So I’m making myself a play-list of songs, called BOUNCE, which I’m filling up with tunes that make me want to dance. I was planning to borrow my son’s ipod to play the songs while I’m doing the housekeeping or cooking, although he’s just informed me that dancing to the B52s “Loveshack” while I’m waiting for the kettle to boil is not motherly behaviour, so maybe that’s out. I can always use the laptop, anyway.

Help me out! Recommend songs that are guaranteed to get these toes tapping and I, uh… well, I promise to update Endiet with my dancing escapades. What a deal :)

I am a firm believer that you have to find a method that fits into your lifestyle in order to enjoy weight loss success for the long term. Good luck with the dancing. Its great cardio, but don’t forget little changes to your eating habits can enhance your efforts… good luck.
