Just Dance!

It will be okay, da da doo doo.

But seriously.  This weekend, my sister, her boyfriend, Trav and I danced our way into the New Year.

I am not much for going out and getting nuts, so I would say this was the perfect way to ring in 2012.  Hysterical and perfect.  Let me just say that Just Dance 3 is awesome.


His shimmies were perfect. Winking smile


Yes, hustle or die was on our swim shirts one year.  That’s when you know we were intense.

Something else sort of hysterical: I start training for my first marathon this week! Today was a rest day, but tomorrow is my first run! Which is good because I have been overly lazy this past week, and have also eaten more than my fair share of food.  Also, I may have indulged in some Peach Sparkling Juice to ring in the New Year…while I think Rex went for the harder stuff ! Smile


With the New Year comes a new me.  I am going to try my hardest to focus on nutrition while training for this race because I typically fuel myself with things that aren’t necessarily the best.  Which could be why I have gained so much weight lately.  It’s becoming extremely frustrating.  Why can’t I motivate myself?!  I also have had a huge weakness for Diet Dr. Pepper lately, and I am going to cut out soda.  I used to NEVER drink it, and for some reason it slowly crept back into my life.  But IT IS GONE!



At least my swimmers are motivated.  They have another big meet tomorrow Smile  Can’t wait to see how they do! This past Saturday, they have a captain-led practice, and they seemed to really enjoy themselves.  They even had a “NASCAR race” in which they had to snake through the pool six times and do something different after each time… like eat a granola bar, do the Macarana, change their wet bathing suit, or chug a Hug drink.  Anyone remember them?! I used to have numerous every time I went to my grandparents’ house.


Here they are doing a team cheer after finishing a wet t-shirt relay…


Ok, well I have a LOT of bloggy catching up to do this evening and I want to head to bed early so that I can sub tomorrow. 

Have you played Just Dance?

Did/ do you have a favorite color Hug drink? My cousins and I used to fight over the blue ones!

  1. I started training for my first marathon today too!

  2. I have decided that Just Dance is the equivalent of Zumba (even though I’ve never taken a Zumba class) and therefore I can call it exercise. I LOVE that game. I got two new versions of it for Christmas and I have been jamming out whenever I have a free second!

  3. Happy New Year! YAY for dancing! 🙂 I reallllly wanna try these video game dances!
    and heck ya for you kicking booty with starting some marathon training! which one are you running?

  4. I just tried that game for the first time last week when I was babysitting… soo much fun!

    That’s awesome that you’re starting to train for a marathon! Which one are you planning on doing? After I’m done with school I want to start training for the Philadelphia Marathon and I cannot wait.

    That NASCAR thing sounds like so much fun. Fun relays were definitely my favorite thing when I was little. I love how much the little kids get into it, they’re so darn cute!

  7. That’s my kind of New Years!! Love it! Rex is just too cute too 😀
