Day 13: 21-Day-Detox 

Saturday, July 8, 2017

I missed another workout. I feel like a failure but I decided to go out with friends and missed my alarm. But, a kid free night was just what mama needed. I wish I would have went a worked out this morning, but sometimes you just need to spend time with your girls and dance.

So that is what I did. I danced all night long. I danced until sweat was pouring from my face and my legs were aching. Not once, did I think about my failed relationship. I wasn’t trying to talk to any of the guys at the bar, I just wanted to dance. 

Dancing is also a great workout and can provide many other health benefits toward a healthier lifestyle. According to the Better Health Channel, here are some of the physical and mental health benefits to dancing:  

  • improved condition of your heart and lungs
  • increased muscular strength, endurance and motor fitness
