Just dance and you never have to “workout” a day in your life :P

You know why people always say that it’s more fun and so much easier to workout when you have the right songs or playlist with you or when your workout is basically just dancing that it doesn’t feel like exercising at all? That’s because it is TRUE, and it’s not like a big secret or anything since MUSIC is such a big part of our lives that even walking kinda gets exciting with your favorite songs banging on your eardrums! In the same way, DANCING is something everyone can enjoy doing more than singing. It’s so fun to do, it’s almost like you’re just playing!

This morning, I was supposed to perfect some yoga moves (that I obviously still can’t do), but I thought that I needed to do some cardio warm ups first so I looked for a few ones on Youtube! I ended up trying Julianne Hough’s (fit, girl crush) trial workouts before discovering Lauren Fitz!

According to her short introduction on her Youtube channel, Lauren is a Zumba/Hiphop instructor. So you should already have pictured by now how exciting her workouts are. I’m a big fan of Zumba ever since it was introduced to us back in college because I always seem drawn to workouts that involved dancing and good music (I was even obsessed with HipHop Abs for a time)! Somehow those two factors help me keep going even when I think I couldn’t anymore. Plus dancing is such a “secret” stress reliever of mine hence my sudden breaking out into ridiculous, epileptic zombie moves in odd places for dancing, like my previous work place. In fact, this very good former workmate I’ve been with for a long time knows this! It’s either that or dancing is probably another one of my very few frustrations in life 🙂 I secretly love dancing so much that I can choreograph my own steps for songs I really love on the spot like this remix of Icona Pop’s “All Night” for example, which I got from the Christmas dance showdown between the very talented Julianne Hough (again, big fan here) and Maria Menounos!

Going back to Lauren’s dance workouts, I found her while I was searching for some Zumba leg exercises because I’m obsessed with toning my lower torso very much! It brought me to her “Royals” self-choreographed dance workout! Who would’ve thought this could be an actual workout song, right? Or is everybody else doing that already? LOL!

I’m telling you this workout was totally killing my hamstring muscles but it was worth it! Like I said, the song kept me going and  the fact that you feel like you’re just doing some dream dance production number on ASAP made it feel more easier to endure! I tried doing leg workouts before but it just wasn’t the same. I think it also helped a lot that it felt like I was a part of their group because dancing with a few others is always so much fun unlike when you’re on your own.

Anyway, here are a few of the others I’ve tried and really loved, also by Lauren!

 

 

bad vibes outta my way!

I’m feeling good now! Thanks to Sigur Ros’ Hoppipolla!

No more bad vibes….hopefully!

Brosandi Smiling
Hendumst í hringi Spinning round and round
Höldumst í hendur Holding hands
Allur heimurinn óskýr The whole world a blur
nema þú stendur But you are standing

Rennblautur Soaked
Allur rennvotur Completely drenched
Engin gúmmístígvél No rubber boots
Hlaupandi inni í okkur Running inside us
Vill springa út úr skel Want to erupt from a shell

Vindurinn The Wind
og útilykt af hárinu þínu An outdoor smell of your hair
Ég anda eins fast og ég get I breathe as hard as I can
með nefinu mínu with my nose

Hoppípolla Jump into puddles
Í engum stígvélum With no boots on
Allur rennvotur(Rennblautur) completely drenched(Soaked)
Í engum stígvélum With no boots on

Og ég fæ blóðnasir And I get a nosebleed
En ég stend alltaf upp but I always stand up

Og ég fæ blóðnasir And I get a nosebleed
En ég stend alltaf upp but I always stand up

LetsSingIt – Your favorite Music Community

Lately, i’ve been feeling so down, maybe because i’m tired of my life and i haven’t had enough inspiration to motivate me to go on. I’m tired because I refuse to love what I’m doing and because there are damn too many people who make my life miserable and what eats me is that I just let them!

Thank God I chanced upon a video of best kisses on movies with this as the background music! Lakas maka-good vibes, lakas makafeel na you’re in coachella or in a music festival, somewhere far from all your worries!

I wanna go somewhere far, somewhere where nobody knows me and start anew! I just wanna drift away in deep slumber with this playing on repeat mode!

Parang nakaka-high lang tong music with good vibes!

Love the lyrics too! Simple yet moving! Gusto ko maiyak, pati yung video!!!!! I wanna grow old, knowing I’ve done something really good for myself and for the people around me!

I wanna die with this music playing on my funeral! waaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh

my post is very random and very flight-of-idea-ish!

I feel like I’m in a big hippie/indie movie!

I cannot explain what I’m feeling exactly! I just feel like as long as this song plays, I’d be feeling HIGH!

Told you, I’m HIGH! But don’t get me wrong, I’m not on drugs!

I just felt I could escape my stressful life as long as this song is on! MUST DOWNLOAD!
