Challenge Preparation #1

As it approaches 2011, it will mark 3 years or so that I've been attempting to lose weight. In fact, in this time, I've only gained it. I am 5 "2 which means I'm not very tall, so being even slightly out of weight becomes very unsightly very fast. However, my appearance aside, I've also just wanted to be healthier. I'm not expecting to suddenly be as energetic as I was in high school, but having asthma, any extra energy is nice :)

I have loved Korean culture for a while. I grew up in a small town, with not a whole lot of money or internet, so I wasn't really able to research it's entertainment, but I researched it's history and found it really engaging. It's been about a year now that I've been completely engrossed in Korean Music. 

What I like about Kpop is that it's really fun music. I don't have to know the lyrics to be energized by the beats and the sounds, and having always liked dance but have never really participated in it, I found the choreography really fun too!

Now, all that background behind, here is my challenge (inspired by a Challenge presented by my friend Chloe): By December of next year, I want to put a dance cover on You Tube of a kpop song chosen by YOU.

I will be accepting nominations for the song and will post the music videos and provide a poll after I get a decent amount of votes.

My goal is too lose about 60 lbs, while I will be dieting, I want the core of my exercise to be focused on learning various choreography while also toning my body.

So here is what I need from you!

1. Encouragement! Staying motivated is the hardest of all, so all the encouragement you can muster will be appreciated :)

2. Nominations for the Choreography video of choice. Please only provide songs with music videos that involve Choreography.

3. Must be kpop :)

I will do my best and update frequently!


  1. Still no comments on this? Anyway, I think it's likely you'll be able to pick up more than one routine in a year, so you might be able to choose from more than one at next year's end. I don't know, it might affect how you plan your dancing schedule or something.

  2. I work full time, so I think learning one at first will be manageable :)
