Motivation Monday #17

Happy Labor Day!!!

Last week I took a little time off to regroup and refocus. It's been quite a while since I've had such an "off" week, but y'all have been here along the way helping me through it. I finally turned to you guys for support last week and yet again I found such an amazing group of people encouraging me. I'm so thankful for those of you who make me dig in and keep going! 

Here are the co-hosts for Motivation Monday:

About Me

Last week Angie, from The Aspiring Housewife, linked up with us! 
She shared her latest weight loss success and I think it's awesome. I was so excited for her when I read her post last week! Stop by and say hi when you get a chance! 

Dancing with my niece this weekend got me to thinking about how much I love it. When I was a little girl, about her age, I can remember dancing around the room with my aunt. When I was 8, I began clogging and absolutely fell in love with it! I spent years devoted to it. Even when it wasn't the coolest thing in the world, I still loved it and showed it off. I'm normally really shy, but somehow I can get up and dance in front of people without thinking twice. 

My husband and I actually love dancing together. We'll dance in the kitchen while cooking dinner or in Tellico around a campfire. 

I've also become addicted to going to Zumba now and I just love it. I'm not the best at it, but I just enjoy it. Dancing is my way of enjoying life. Luckily for me, there are plenty of reasons to do it! 

There's nothing like a two hour stretch of Zumba to get me pouring sweat and burning calories! I can achieve more through Zumba than being on my elliptical. And the best part is that I'm just dancing! I do something I love without it feeling like a chore. What's not to love? Sometimes I have no coordination, but that's not the point. I'm not going for Dancing With The Stars. It's something that I don't have to be the best at to love it. 

So....what do you do for fun to burn calories?


  1. I wish my hubby liked dancing. On a very rare occasion he will dance one song at a wedding reception. I like dancing and I agree that it really burns those cals.

    1. My hubby is a fabulous dancer! He's got better rhythm than I do!

  2. You might remember that dancing is my preferred daily form of exercise. :)

    Odd I linked up with you guys about 20 minutes ago, but not showing on your or Veronica's page. :(

    Have a great Labor Day!

    1. Yep! I sure do remember!

      Dancing is such a great calorie burner!
