Wii Fit

So when I was in Glenpool a couple weeks ago I went to a friends house and they happen to have a Wii Fit. I tried it out and kinda liked it. We have a Wii and it just sits on the shelf b/c Scott prefers to only play his PS3. I decided I would get one. I played with it for the first few days with Ashley and then we went out of town. Today I have made a commitment to do the Wii Fit at least 30 minutes everyday. Each day you do a fitness test and it lets you know your BMI (mines pretty scary) and your weight (that is scary too!). Anyway, you can set goals and it keeps track of them. It is a fun way to work out. If you have a Wii you should get one!! Since I got it a week ago I have lost a whoppin' 1 lb. but that is better than gaining it!!! I will post every Monday how much weight I have lost or gained. My goal before November 20th it 10 lbs we will see if it happens or not.

A few details on the Wii Fit. You can do Yoga, Strength Training, Aerobics, and Balance Games. I think it is good for me b/c when I exercise I push myself to the extreme as to not be out done and then I don't want to do it ever again. With the Wii Fit you have to unlock new challenges, exercises, and the amount of reps you can do, so you build up to more difficult exercises. That way I don't over do it all at once.

That is all for now, I have a wonderfully funny video of Ashley Hoola Hooping on the Wii Fit but I value my life to much to post it!!!:)

I think I need one of those, the only time the Wii gets played with is when the grandkids come over. Maybe I could get some good out of it myself.

That does sound like a good way to get some exercise in. I bet the video is great, I'll just have to use my imagination...
