My very own video game.
This weekend I went shopping and now it will be a fight for which one of us gets the TV/Game system (longevity vs. bitchy female!). That's right, I found a game that I will play for lengthy periods of time, multiple times a week. Hogging the TV, and most of the living room floor. Dance Dance Revolution! I can't get enough of those arrows, the beat and stomping around like a maniac. I love feeling a little out of breath and exhausted when I finish. I feel like a superstar (even though I look like and idiot)! "Perfect!" "65 Combo!" "A!" I love it.
The best part about the game is that it's more than a game. I can "play" it. There are levels to beat, challenges to pass and points to earn - but it's also a work out. A work out I can do in my own living room - and one I can enjoy. (For those of you who know me, I'm not trying to lose any weight - just build my endurance. For those of you who don't know me, I'm a measly 112 pound twenty-something who can't seem to pack on a pound for the life of me. Don't hate me.) I look forward to hiding from the fresh air and sun this summer and beating away on the floor of my apartment.
