Now buying a video game to exercise just did not make sense to me. Being cooks our schedules are usually never the same...and getting to a gym isn't exactly easy daily. So this seems like a great alternative if it works. She has been semi-fit sporatically while we have been together. I on the other hand am the type that everyone hates...I have not set foot into a gym since my Army days...and I truly believe a box of donuts a day is required to maintain my girlish figure. So, everyone else seems to be doing it...we might as well jump off the bridge too. We have no gaming experience...and it doesn't have fifty thousand buttons you have to use...so I guess I can do it. After our first day we were hooked...
Every Morning I get to watch my Wife Christina exercise now. As I type she is movin that imaginary hula hoop round and round and round...lol. She is actually losing weight with it too...she's lost 8lbs in two weeks..kinda freaks me out. Her goal was to lose twenty pounds and mine is to gain twenty. Now it's not just the Wii...we also are trying to eat healthier..except for my box of donuts hehe. Christina probably spends an hour a day at least doing all kinds of things on it. I had the flu and stopped for the past few days...I am dreading getting back on it. I know it is going to give me shit for not doing it the past few days...it records everything.
We own no normal video games for it...just fitness programs. The fav's to date are Wii Fit Plus, My Fitness Coach, Yoga (thats me) and the Gold's Gym Cardio Workout....all have a myriad of activities and sports to play. Some track your food intake as well as your exercising. All are good for you...no matter how much of a spaz you feel like while flailing around in the empty livingroom.
So were sticking to it...tonight I will break down and do some Yoga and Meditation with my perfect bodied lil digital trainer...tomorrow I will be sore in places I am not normally sore...and my Wife will be happy I am doing it again. Fitness sucks...why cant I just eat pounds of Butter and Chocolate!!
