Just snap a pic and paste it and write the date time and memory associated with it . Easy peasy  guys !! After a year u will have achieved a wonderful memory book that you enjoy so much every time you look at it.

Dance Workout

Sometimes you need to shake that booty ladies , that is if you really want to shake off that extra fat and get back in the pre-baby shape sigh!! Every moms desire.

I know either you are not motivated enough for that 15 minutes workout or you do star it but after sometime you get bored of the same moves . Well if you are someone who gets bored easily and want something exciting  then this is just what you need .

Dance workouts are not only fun but it’s a type of cardio, some of the benefits of cardio are as follows
