Just Dance Wii!

I bought the Just Dance 2 for the Wii a couple of days ago.  The kids and I just love it!  We've been using it a lot.  Some of the song lyrics aren't exactly kid appropriate but they aren't bad.  I like how there are songs from many different eras.  New music, 80's hits and even some 60's songs.

The kids have played so much they have the dance moves practically memorized already!  Even though only 4 players can dance at a time, we get a bunch of the little daycare kids dancing so we'll have 8 or so kids all dancing.  It's a blast to watch them all dance to songs like Tik Tok or Walk Like an Egyptian.  I just wish there was more room in our den for them to spread out more! 

We liked it so much that I ordered Just Dance 1 and Just Dance Kids.  I'll let you know how I like those once they come!

I would recommend this game.  The only word of caution is some of the lyrics are questionable for kids. Some songs like Satisfaction or Sympathy for the Devil might not be the greatest to have your kids dance around to. 


Tuesday Eat's
Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal with splenda instead of sugar = 265
Salad w/turkey = 175
Yogurt = 100
Cheese and crackers = 150
More Baked Oatmeal = 265
White Bean Italian Pizza = 565
Total = 1520 calories

It certainly is a conflict of interest to be a food blogger and a dieter at the same time!  I had planned to make the baked oatmeal this week for dinner but it turns out it's going to be super hot and humid by the end of the week so no oven.  So I made it for breakfast.  Oh my, this stuff rocked! It was like eating dessert for breakfast.  Then I made an incredible white bean vegetarian pizza for dinner.  Higher calories than I thought it would be but insanely delicious. 

Wednesday Eat's
1 1/2 Rhubarb Strawberry Baked Oatmeal = 395
Watermelon = 50
White Bean Pizza = 565
Special K Protein Bar = 170
Steak = 180
Broccoli = 50
Salad w/fruit = 175
Total = 1585 calories

Second day in a row of going over calories. *sigh* Mostly just leftovers today, glad they are gone to keep them from tempations reach!  Not enough water today either.  It is usually second nature just to be drinking all the time but for some reason today I haven't felt like it.  Maybe that's why I ate so much!


  1. The girls brought that game one day. But since they played it at home so much they really didn't want to do it here so I'm going to look for a couple new games that keep us up and moving. Lately I've let the boys bring racing games for nap time but I find them pretty boring after awhile so time for something new.
    Keep working on your calories, you'll get them in the right place. You're doing really good Debbi. Keep it up.
    Take care and have a great day. For us no sunshine, very muggy and looks like rain. We are going bowling today and also the Train Museum. Then one of the mamam's gave us 3 cheeseburger basket coupons so the kids get to eat for free. YEAH!!! I like outtings that don't cost an arm and a leg.
    Chat later. Blessings!!

  2. I got that for my daughter last Christmas but I haven't used it that much. It's fun when I do though:-)

  3. Still not up-to-date with the new age here no Wii or anything else like that. My kids have them, I just dont know how to use Keep plugging away on STS and have a wonderful 4th of July. Gracie

  4. Those dance games ARE fun. I need to get back to Kinect-ing with hubby. We need more space to do it properly, but still fun!

  5. I remember being at the Vilas Park Zoo after a good flirting session with the life guards at Wingra beach and I was a fit tennis player in high school, but it was so humid hot, not only did I feel sorry for the animals, but I almost passed out. The Midwest humidity can be horrible. I am already complaining of the heat here in Idaho. It has gone up to 93. I will not walk in that kind of heat.

  6. I finally got myself a Wii but haven't had the money to get any of the games or fitness stuff yet! I really want to try this kind of thing with it b/c dancing doesn't feel as much like work as exercise. I've heard that a large percentage of the time, when people feel hungry it's because they're actually thirsty. If we don't drink enough water, out body gets confused and thinks it's hungry a lot of the time when it's thirsty. Try reaching for the water when the hunger strikes.

  7. Thanks for the rec! I went downstairs to check out 10yo's Wii and it turns out she has the first Just Dance, so we gave it a go. It definitely gets you moving and is good fun, so I'm glad I did.

  8. Isnt it the best to have FUN while exercising?!?!?!!
