To dance or sing :)

There are two things I really like to do, dance and sing. Unfortunately, I am not good at either of them. I am only allowed to sing along to music when none of my family is around. I cannot carry a tune to save my life. Luckily, I do have some time in the car alone when I can belt it out. I wonder how I must look to all the other drivers on the road. Pretty weird I would imagine, but honestly, I don't care - I love to sing! :)

As for dancing, I definitely have two left feet, but I have always wanted to try Zumba. My friends were telling me all the time how much fun and what a great workout it was. Then, the most amazing thing happened, a Zumba game came out for the Wii. How perfect is that, a way to do it in my own home. Oh, I forgot to mention, that I am incredibly cheap and don't want to pay for a gym membership, and incredibly lazy, if I have to go anywhere to exercise, I won't do it. Ok, back on track. Zumba came out for the Wii. I was so ecstatic. Unfortunately, it was quite pricey, not appealing to my cheap side. Ugh, what to do, what to do. Then, as if it was fate, it went on sale. So of course my frugal self bought it, and I am so happy I did. I absolutely love this Wii game. It's perfect - I can dance my heart out and nobody has to be punished watching me :) LOL I am definitely "white girl can't dance". Seriously, though, if any of you are interested in Zumba, but afraid/bashful and don't want to do it in public, this is the game for you. It offers different levels - beginner, intermediate and advanced, and different lengths, either 25 or 40 minutes.

Just so you know, I'm not trying to advertise a Wii game. This is just a game that I really enjoy. I have others that I switch it up with, but I just really enjoy Zumba. And isn't exercise supposed to be fun - how do we expect ourselves to actually workout every day if we don't enjoy what we do - we need to find routines that are fun, but yet challenging. No one wants an extremely easy workout, that's boring, but yet we don't want a routine that is so hard we get frustrated. Where's the happy medium? It's in a workout that is challenging, but not too much, and fun, so we aren't bored. That's what I look for, always something new, so I don't get bored with what I am doing. If anyone has some suggestions, I am definitely interested.
