You know what I love about working out at home? Dancing between sets with complete abandon. Since I have the workout room set up in the basement, I don't have to worry about anyone catching me dancing and I get to listen to the tunes that make me move the most. Sometimes I get so into a song that I end up going nuts dancing the way I used to do when I was a kid, which is really not dancing but more a wiggling and writhing whilst jumping up and down. This used to crack my dad up when I was a kid and I hadn't learned inhibition yet and he would coax me into "dancing" for him. When do we learn inhibition anyway? I wanted to say from school but em homeschools and her kids learned it just fine. Sometimes I amuse myself since I have a mirror down there and I dance like Donny Osmond in that Weird Al video. I keep meaning to make a video of myself but I don't think I would be able to let all inhibition go and show you the real thing. I've already danced for you anyway but maybe one day I'll do one like Donny did. Sometimes people ask what I do for cardio and I usually say nothing, but I think the dancing counts. I don't see why dancing wouldn't, I mean the whole goal of cardio is to maintain an elevated heartrate and respiration rhythm, no? And it beats the elliptical any day, talk about boredom and torture perfectly melded.
Do you have a time and a place where you can dance and feel the music like electricity in your veins and you become helpless before it like a marionette? If not, you should find one. It's great therapy for the soul and for me, the main reason I look forward to my workouts.
