Dancing as a Great Way To Achieve A Healthy Body

Posted by on Feb 24, 2016 in Fitness, Hobbies | Comments Off on Dancing as a Great Way To Achieve A Healthy Body

I always dreamed of having a beautiful, fit, and healthy body. However, I came from an obese family. We all love to eat and for us it is the best way to bond. I always get bullied growing up and that is because of my extra-large size. When I was in high school, I became aloof. I don’t want to mingle with other people because I feel like I don’t belong. When I went to college, I became interested in dancing. At first, it was very difficult to pursue my passion for dancing because most of the people who take dance classes are already slim and are already great dancers. I was an okay dancer, but what made me hesitant was that I was embarrassed to perform because I was fat.

However, I swallowed my pride and took all the courage I had left to join dance classes. It was really tough at first because people were saying mean things behind my back. But I pushed on, especially after I found out that there are lots of health benefits from dancing. I decided to make it a part of my day to day health habit. Through dancing, I gradually lost weight while gaining more and more knowledge and skills.

My passion continued to this day, when I am already a mother of two but still fit and fab, and able to do a lot of things. Thanks to dancing! Did I mention that I am a fan of Madonna Grimes? She is one of the most influential people and actually one of the advocates of dancing as a way of healthy living.

Dancing is a form of exercise. It helps tone and slims your entire body. Dancing is so much fun! I usually dance with my peers, but I don’t mind dancing alone. I can simply jut get loose and no one will see me. It is an instant calorie burner. Just shake your body to the music and share the calories away. Don’t you know that dancing enables you to burn more calories than workout? A workout routine can be challenging and stressful, but in dancing you will never feel the burn because you will look at it as a form of entertainment. Active dancing, the ones that involves rocking the body will enable you to burn up to 700 calories per hour. Isn’t that amazing?

Below is an example of a video dance routine for weight loss that you can try out:

What I love the most in dancing is that it lets you lose fat in all the right places. Performing regular dance routine will help you achieve a slimmer hips, sexier waist, beautiful thighs and butt. Dancing is a holistic exercise approach. It does not just target a particular area of the body, but the entire parts of the body. Another great benefit of dancing is it gives you a great cardio workout. If you are struggling to lose weight, then I strongly suggest that you should try dancing. You don’t have to be a great dancer. As long as you know how to groove and jive, then I’m pretty sure you can dance off the inches away.

For most women, there is nothing more rewarding than the fulfillment of a woman’s role as a mother. A woman starts to become a mother from the time she conceives the little angel in her womb, and it never stops until her last breath.

When a woman enters parenthood, she forgets everything else, even herself. All the attention is given to her child. This is the reason why some mothers tend to look exhausted and stressed out and they end up being unconscious of their diet and health.

There are a lot of these stories if you read on reviews on plexus slim which you can click here, to read for yourself. Stories of mothers who forgot to keep their bodies healthy because of being too focused on the needs of their children, especially for first time mothers with a new born child. The lack of experience in the art of balancing time for the baby and the rest of the family, including oneself, is one great factor as to why some mothers end up losing their charm and beauty which they had before pregnancy. To add more damage is the fact that these mothers who have gained weight during their pregnancy, forget to detoxify and regenerate their body in order to bring it back to how it  once was – slim and sexy.

These mothers were greatly helped by MaDonna Grimes in maintaining a healthy body despite all the duties that has to be done. According to all mothers who shared their love for the “Queen of Hip Hop” and fitness buff, Grimes, she is the best when it comes to motivating them to keep on going for that slimmer and sexier body even we are already mommies.

Mothers should grab opportunities such as this. To have someone, like MaDonna, help regain a healthy lifestyle. This is important not only for yourself but for your child as well. Mommies should be reminded that while it is necessary to always look out for the best interest of your child, taking care of yourself is also a must because how you look to your children will greatly affect them, as well. It would also be damaging to the child if you end up sick because you will have to pass up on taking care of them yourself since you cannot be with them. This will result to a less solid mother and child relationship. Keeping that in mind, always make sure to take care of your body by providing it with the right nutrients and supplements, and by getting rid of fats, as what MaDonna Grimes campaigns for, using dancing and her hip hop videos as instruments of a healthy life.

If you maintain a healthy lifestyle for yourself, be assured that your child will also grow up healthy and glowing.
