Some Free Exercise...and Some Links
So last night I got dressed up (I used to look much better in a mini skirt than I do now...eeekkk), put on those shoes you see above (big mistake...I was practically crippled by the time we got finished), and we danced for about four hours at a local casino nightclub that featured a live band and lots of ballroom dancing (it's an Asian place and everyone ballroom dances...to every song so matter if it is a boogie, cha cha, or a hip hop song!). It was fun and best of all, it was free. There was no cover charge and we don't drink so basically we walked in and stayed on the dance floor for an hour then when the band went on break we walked around the casino until they began to play again.
Overall, dancing is excellent exercise and it is fun as well (next week we are going to invite our cousins to come along). There were lots of people there in their 60s, 70s, and 80s and all looked slim and healthy so maybe they are on to something (it was a bit disconcerting, however, to see 70 year old women with their faces full of glitter makeup though...) and I highly recommend dancing if you want to get some good--free--exercise.
And now some interesting links...
