Another installment of Fitness Friday. This is my year. I'm done procrastinating and want to see if using the Wii to lose weight and firm up is actually possible. Others have made it happen so why not me?
I've lost 3 pounds. I lose and gain 3 pounds each day so I'm not convinced yet. I do know that muscle weighs more than fat and right now my thigh muscles are rockin' due to all the cycling and lunges I'm doing. I'd like to believe that's my issue for not losing more in 2.5 weeks. If I'm honest, though, it's more likely to be the pound of chocolate covered peanuts my In-Laws delivered that seem to have disappeared. They then brought Whoppers and Peanut Butter Whoppers. We still have some of those...but not much. February is when I'm going to add in a maximum calorie diet. I want to have a workout routine in place before I start using extra time to count and track calories and keeping a food journal. I'm also hesitating because the thought of giving up my (almost) nightly wine has crossed my mind and I'm just not ready yet.
New finds for the Wii this week were the Marching "game" on Wii Fit Plus and the addition of Just Dance. We play Just Dance for fun but I'm sure the extra activity will help, I just tend to move my arms and haven't quite got the hang of all the "bottom half" moves yet. Practice. Practice. Practice.
I'd also like to add the EA Active to my workout routine as I've heard from others that this really helps. The Wii Mommies are giving away a copy which you can register to win here. You must be a member of Wii Mommies, though, so if your using your Wii to get fit...join us.
Did I tell you about the crazy workout I set up for myself? I just linked some activities together without really thinking about it. I may be in need of some arthritis treatments on my knees if I keep this up. It's six activities, in this order: The Warrior pose, Leg extensions, knee bend (to chest thingy. Not sure what it's called), side lunges, forward lunges, and ends with the chair pose. Yeah, maybe I should put the chair at the beginning and the Warrior at the end. Mike keeps telling me I'm "shaky".
Whats your favorite combination?
