Get Fit With Wii Fit Sunday January 30, 2011

I found a great link up over at Hazel Nut's blog, The Nut House.  Like our family she is using the Wii Fit.  She has a weekly post on Sundays called "Getting Fit With Wii Fit Sundays."  I thought it would be fun to post a more detailed account of my exercise routine each week.  I will still weigh in on Wednesdays, but on Sundays I am going to post how my weekly exercise specifically on the Wii Fit has gone.  I was going to use it as another weigh in day, but decided I would stick with once a week.  (Might have had something to do with a little girl's birthday cake/parties.)

Anyhow, the first picture below shows a typical workout morning time, if I don't use the Aerobic DVD (which I couldn't use this morning as it appears to be misplaced), I get over an hour of exercise in.

I need to reset my calorie burned goal.  It is actually lower than this and I always do more when I get to exercise.  It is a little disappointing that they do not count your outside exercise toward the calorie count as I burn a lot more when I do the DVD.

This past week's exercise credits:

What really stinks is that you don't get a stamp if you don't do the Body Test.  The blue stars mean I lost weight and had a good age.  

I weighed myself on the Wednesday. Love that it is slanted DOWN!

Here is the full week.

The following pictures show my routine:

Here is what I do most frequently:

Some of the other fun things I do each day I choose to do Wii Fit beyond my routine.  Love the boxing and stepping.  We all get frustrated by the obstacle course.  I decided today to add the Bird's Eye Bull's Eye to my daily routine. 

One of these days I will try these...

So, there you have it.  That is how I spend over an hour in the morning and then wonder why I feel like my whole day has gotten away from me.  When I am done the girls each get a turn and daddy and brother.  Luckily we have a rechargeable batteries and a battery charger.

  1. Oh my goodness! You totally kicked butt last week! I am so envious of you. I am going to have to work extra hard to keep up with you, lol.

    my post is up, but since it is late, I didn't at a link-up, but I did mention you ;)

    Congrats on the awesome workouts!
