So it’s been a month.

As you can see I didn’t stick to my wanting to workout every day on the Wii Fit. I did great for 10 days! Then I started skipping here and there. I also started out following the Body for Life program and then stopped. Then I went with South Beach for about ten days then stopped that too.

But I’m back to working out every day! It’s about not giving up and at least doing something. My workout schdule is

  • 10 minutes free walking
  • 3-4 balance games
  • 3-4 yoga
  • 2-3 strength

This is just the minimum of what I do. If I feel like I want to keep going, I do – but I don’t stop until I’m done with at least these. It has made it easier to keep going – I’ll jump on intending to get the exercises out of the way then finish with the walk but end up adding extra workouts or doing 20 minutes of walking instead of 10.

And I am back to loving the Wii Fit! Yesterday (when I took the screen shot) it told me I was 20 years old. How awesome is that! The youngest I’d been til that point was 27 so I was shocked. (Yes, I have been telling everyone I know or see about this wonderful number.)

Both of my kids put their mii’s into the Wii Fit recently. They did the initial test and laughed at being told they were in their 20s, then have had fun playing the balance games. They love that all the mii’s on our Wii are included in the games. When I start the soccer ball game they always name off who is in the line up – and are very excited if they are the coach that time.

This week my husband finally joined in on the fun. He’s only done his initial test so far but that’s something. I can’t remember how old it told him he is but I question the Wii Fit standards because it told him he was overweight – and sure he’s softer then when he graduated Officer Candidate School last spring, but overweight? Then he showed me how to really do a push up.

Even if I’m only down a pound and a half since I got on the Wii, I know that number is going to change. The number has gone down and up and down and down and up again. I am loving the Wii Fit Mommies forum and blog. Everyone is excited to lose weight this way and if I am having a blah day I can read and get some encouragement.

    I want to buy a Wii Fit, too. I’ve been told it’s really fun, so I think I’m going to get one soon. I just want to get in better shape.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I’m so happy to hear you’re loving the Wii Fit and our Forum! I’m super proud of your continued dedication and I’m certain you’ll achieve your weightloss goals!

    Exercise always makes a huge difference for me when I’m dieting. Keep up the good work on that! Have you tried Weight Watchers? I’ve done the points thing with them for years. I lose it and then gain it and lose it and so on, but it does come off with that program. Keeping it off is another story. I like it because it is flexible as far as what I eat since I’m kind of a picky eater. As long as I stay within my points range, I can really eat just about anything I want.

  4. Even though you have had some setbacks it is good to see you are still trying. I was bummed this week because I didnt lose any…but it is making me more motivated to do better next week. I love the forum…it is really keeping me motivated! My sister keeps talking about all the diets and stuff…but myself I know I will not stick with any…I just need to diet in my own way so I am comfortable doing it. I know I cant quit eating carbs or start eating funky food I dont like…it will just make me miserable so I am just trying to find ways to eat healthier and cut back.

    Dont you just love when it tells you you are younger…makes me feel good!

  5. I loved post! I swear it felt like I was looking into a mirror with what you’re experiencing! I just put myself on Weight Watchers two days ago to help with the weight.

    But, I’ve been doing a minimum of 15 minutes each day on the Wii Fit no matter what. I can tell a difference…especially running after my 4 1/2 year old son!

    Way to keep up the accountability. :-) You’re great!

  7. Keep up the good work! You are going to help motivate me to get back on the Wii Fit. I’ve done the Forum challenge all week and I won on Tuesday! I needed that motivation. I have my Mardi Gras ball tonight so I’m about to leave to help decorate, but once I get home I’m going to do at least 30 minutes on the Wii Fit to get myself motivated.

    I look forward to following your successes!

    I finally got a Wii last month, but had planned to hold off on buying a Wii fit. Then we had so much fun playing tennis and boxing. That was enough to convince me! Mine arrives any day now and I’m soooo excited.

    It’s inspiring to see that you’re keeping with it. Now whenever I’m on my Wii Fit I’ll remember you’re probably on yours. It’s like being long-distance workout buddies!
