Get Fit Friday - Check In and Challenge

Written by on May 10, 2013 in [, , , ]

Two weeks ago I made a pact with all of you to increase the amount of exercise that I was doing. I mentioned that I was going to do Dance Central every day and get in some walking as well. I am here today to let you know that I have not stuck with it as well as I should. I have done some Dance Central and I have done some other exercising over the past two weeks but not nearly the amount that I said I wanted to do. I have been able to lose a couple of pounds during the past couple of weeks, so I must be doing something right, but there is so much more that I can do to make it better.

One of the biggest things that I have realized about myself is that I enjoy a bit of friendly competition. Last year, when the Harmonix team did a Dance Central challenge each week it really energized me and got me excited each day to turn on the Xbox and get my dance on. I was talking to Marcia Webb, of The Mommy Gamers, earlier this week and mentioned to her how much we enjoyed doing it together. It was then spurred on that we both love to see if we can beat the others score on a certain song; hence the friendly competition.

So for, at least, the next two weeks we are going to be doing some Dance Central Dance Off Challenges. I hope to see many of you joining in as well. We can all post our scores for the day in the comments section and then encourage each other to get their dance on as well. I know that the ladies at The Mommy Gamers are planning on doing better than I am, but I am not about to let that happen. I know that if I work on the songs each day, during my workout, that I will get better and better scores.

Take on the challenge and see if you can beat other’s scores.

So here is this week’s Dance Central Dance Off Challenge:

Remember that in order to get the most effective workout on these songs, you need to play them on medium or higher. It is true that you may not get that great of score to begin with at the higher level but you will get there; I promise. I headed over to the Dance Central blog and grabbed one of their challenges from this past January.

Pump It Up Challenge

Choose 10 songs (minimum, feel free to add more) from the list below and create a playlist in Dance Central 3. For the most songs to choose from try importing your songs from the original Dance Central and Dance Central 2 into Dance Central 3!

“Calabria 2008″ (DC3)
“Hello” (DC3)
“I Am The Best” (DC3)
“I Will Survive” (DC3)
“Macarena” (DC3)
“Mr. Saxobeat” (DC3)
“Scream” (DC3)
“Sexy And I Know It” (DC3)
“Starships” (DC3)
“Teach Me How To Dougie” (DC3)
“Turn The Beat Around” (DC3)
“Baby Got Back (Mix Mix)” (DC2)
“Bad Romance” (DC2)
“Can’t Get You Out of My Head” (DC)
“Don’t Touch Me (Throw Da Water On ‘Em)” (DLC)
“Evacuate The Dance Floor” (DC)
“Gangnam Style” (DLC)
“Hello Good Morning” (DLC)
“Informer” (DLC)
“Like A G6″ (DC2)
“Mai Ai Hee (Dragostea Din Tei)” (DC2)
“Planet Rock” (DLC)
“Poker Face” (DC)
“Replay” (DLC)
“Sandstorm” (DC2)
“Sexy Chick” (DC2)
“S&M” (DLC)

I think with this as an option, we will all start to see some bigger success. So once you have finished your ten songs, put the score for your best song in the comments section so we can all start having some fun trying to beat your score. This challenge will go from Friday, May 10th to Thursday, May 16th.
