I’ve discovered a new way to lose weight.

It’s called a night club!

One of my friends from work invited me out last night and I accepted. I had almost forgotten what it was like to dance until you feel your feet are going to fall off! We got there about 6:30PM. We almost immediately started dancing (The DJ’s were awesome – playing this awesome funky techno/tribal music that you couldn’t HELP but dance to). I ended up leaving at 9:00 and I swear I sat down for a total of 3 minutes the entire time. I was DRENCHED with sweat and was just BUZZING with energy. Sure I love getting a runner’s high and all, but I would never be able to run for 2.5 hours and I’ve never felt as good as I did leaving the club last night.

To top it all off, once I got home, my fiancé displayed an interest in a little, uh, box springs HIIT. Whoo hoo!

So to sum it all up: Eating was good and I completed three workouts in one day.

Best of all the fiancé has agreed to come with me next Wednesday night so we can do it again.

When I woke up this morning I ached from head to toe! LOL My feet, ankles, calves, knees, calves, hips, and lower back all hurt from dancing. And my shoulders and arms hurt from yesterday’s weight workout. WHEW! It feels GREAT.

I’ve no doubt I did enough cardio last night to justify skipping my run today. Foods been.. so/so this morning. Mostly because I feel like I’m STARVING. I gave into the urge to have a scrambled egg and cheese bagel for meal two. I’ll go for something a little leaner for my next meal and make up for it. Good news is, I didn’t give into raiding the candy jar at the front desk.

I’m going to go home and go to bed early tonight so we can get up and hit the gym in the morning.

Have a great day everyone – and if you get the chance – take a little time and kick up your heals today!


  1. Woohoo!! Glad you had a great time! Love, P

  2. yeah dancing can really make your muscles sore the next day! It's kind of surprising..

    Night clubs sound like fun! I've actually never been to one..

  3. Going dancing used to be a 'every other weekend' thing for me and my girlfriends. I think I was alot thinner then. It's fun, it burns TONS of calories and you sleep better. But, most of my friends now don't dance so I haven't been for a long time. I've been thinking about going alone, but it isn't as much fun.

  4. Sounds like quite the night!!! ;)
    Now you make me wanna go out! ---

    whaaa -not for me--well, not any time soon.. :( -next weekend is the Xmas party & theyre'll be dancing then! Guess I'll just look forward to that!

    Good for you thought sounds FUN~!

    Take care
