You put down enough turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie to send Wilford Brimley into a diabetic coma. Then you housed leftovers and drank all night, and by the time today rolled around, you're heifer status. Because we live in a gorgeous, sunny wonderland (Hi, Chiara!), hiding your flab behind gigantic sweaters until sometime in May is not an option.

It's well known that outside of the Shake Weight, dancing is one of the best forms of exercise available, delivering a full-body workout (in the case of Daggering, perhaps a bit too full) that can tone arms and legs, increase cardiovascular endurance, burn fat, and dramatically improve your overall funkiness.
