Wii Fit – Day 7 May 27, 2008

Filed under: Me,Wii,Wii Fit — travit @ 4:20 pm

Down another 3.3 lbs.  I’m still having fun with it.  I’ve unlocked the free step and I can actually watch something else while keeping rhythm with the sound coming through the Wiimote. 

I haven’t done my workout today but plan to do it once the kids are in bed tonight.  Carson came home sick from school this morning and it threw my entire routine off. 

Only one more week of school.  How long until summer is over??


Wii Fit – Day 3 May 23, 2008

Official weight loss over two days so far is 1.1 lbs.  Still have a long, long way to go.

Did a 45 minute workout today.  I really hope no one is looking in my windows while I am doing the Super Hula Hoop game because I must look like a crazy person gyrating wildly in my living room.  I am seeing a lot of improvement already in my flexibility and balance.  My balance is so bad that anything is an improvement.

I unlocked a new aerobics game today called Rhythm Boxing.  It is fun and a great workout.  It’s sort of a cross between Dance Dance Revolution and Wii Boxing.  I can tell that is going to be one of my favorite activities.


Wii Fit – Day 2 May 22, 2008

I lost 1.5 lbs since yesterday.  I weighed after lunch yesterday and on an empty stomach today so that could be making the difference.  I will weigh in the morning tomorrow.

Worked out this morning for 30 minutes.  12 minutes of yoga with the rest divided among strength training and aerobics.  I hope to do another 30 minutes later on today.  I did see that my balance improved somewhat since yesterday, I was much more stable and focused on the yoga positions this time around.

Wii Fit is the coolest thing ever.  I just finished my first Wii workout and it was so much fun.  It comes with a balance board that monitors your activity throughout the different exercises and mini games.  There is yoga, strength training, aerobics and balance games.  It calculates your BMI and tracks your progress over time.  I worked out for 26 minutes including a little jog through the animated countryside and I feel great.  I have horrible balance but have always wanted to try Yoga.  This allowed me to try today without humiliating myself in a real yoga class.  I am going to try and do this every day.  Wish me luck!

Riley is playing a hula hoop game on it right now.  I love that it has activities the whole family can enjoy while they are getting up and moving.

If you don’t know what Wii Fit is I found this trailer on YouTube that shows it pretty well.
