Some Free Exercise...and Some Links

Last night was the first time we have gone dancing in ages.  During all of my 20s and most of my 30s we were in nightclubs nearly every day of the week (then our friends closed their club and we got a bit lazy and stopped going dancing all together unless we were on a cruise ship).
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 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...


  1. Umm.. Wow! I'd kill myself in ths I'm sure!! lol!! Heels are not my strong suit! ;)

  2. OMG! You wore those shoes out dancing? Did I read that right?

  3. Yep it's been more than a few years since I wore heels and this style is in fashion--at least that is what all of the 20-somethings wear here in Las Vegas. They make me tower over the hubby (which he found amusing since I am actually a few inches shorter than him...on a good day) and they are really uncomfortable (I usually live in tennis shoes). Lesson learned :)

  4. Hmm,,,,,,,,,,,dont think I ever wore that style, but I only wear flats. ever, for anything (even a formal wedding, I found gold strappy sandals that were flat)
