Just Dance Just Sweat Dream Team Final Update


Thank you to Ubisoft for picking me to be a member of the Just Sweat Dream Team and sponsoring this fitness series. Please click here to learn more about Ubisoft. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.
It sure does not seem like it has been 4 months already! It seems like only yesterday that I was excitedly showing my audition video to my students (over and over!) and hoping I would be chosen.
In the end, I lost 8 pounds or so.  It's only 1/5th of my goal, but it has not been the easiest summer I've ever had.  I have had sad things happen, sicknesses like gallbladder problems and bronchitis crop up, and just facing the everyday hustle in life.  I made it, though, and I am going to continue on.
I did miss a few days in the past month due to sickness and being so exhausted after that I crashed in the living room.  A week ago I got sick after subbing at school and it turned into bronchitis.  I'm pretty much better and will dance again after I check in at the doctor's tomorrow.  Overall I have been pretty good at exercising all summer long.
I think that one of the most important things I'll take away from this experience is a new exercise habit. I exercised even while I was on vacation or battling problems. It's now ingrained that I need to do my Just Dance :)
I was able to play Just Dance 4 before it came out. It's so much fun! I love "So What", "Time Warp", "Never Gonna Give You Up", "Time of My Life", "Love You Like a Love Song" and more.  It's fun to have songs and more to unlock again since I had maxed out Just Dance 3. I highly recommend this game and will do a longer review soon.
What's up for me next? I am going to continue working on losing weight.  I will still do Weight Watchers and I am working more organic foods into my life. I have some pretty big things coming that I can't wait to talk about once I am able :D  
Life is good. I am so grateful and humbled that I got to be on the Just Sweat Dream Team.  I am going to continue using it as my exercise. It's so exciting to find something that's both fun and able to help you lose weight.

Wear fit clothing the next time you show as the before and after comparison. In that way, we'll see the difference a lot easier. Good luck.

Thanks. True, I probably should have worn something different. I had been sick with bronchitis right then so I just wanted to make sure I got it all posted up. :)
