feeling a little better today. I was able to burn over 500 calories on the wii fit plus last night so that was good. I did not walk with the guys at work though.

I've already done 45 minutes on the wii today and will do more as the day progresses I'm sure.

WOO HOO - feeling good.

    Great!! Keep it up.

Could you bottle up a bit of that motivation and send it my way?

I feel like I ate way too much yesterday. I was within my calorie range, but I over ate at dinner, that upsets me.

I will get out today and to some exercise, bootcamp, walking, wii, etc.

wish me luck!

    I find that if I eat small every few hours I feel better than if I cram in a bunch at one meal. Good job of staying in your calories though.

Rock on!

Thankful for the weekend, that's forsure. I have burned 2901 calories at the time I'm writing this blog entry. This is only the calories from my fitness tracker, doesn't include the BMR calories. GO ME!! I'm working hard and I have to say that I'm proud of myself.

Does anybody else use the wii fit plus to help burn come calories? I'm enjoying using it since it so freaking cold outside right now!

make it a great day people!

    Kudos on the big calorie burn.

I don't use my wii as much as I should. It is a fun thing to do, also since it is so cold around here.

    "so freaking cold outside" have to laugh at this reading you're from TX, wanna trade?
I'm several hours north of the Michigan border...walked to work last week when it was -29c. I'm going to try and post a winter pic on my page...
Good job on the Wii though, I know there are a lot that use it, really any extra way to keep moving can't be a bad thing, right? There are also spark teams for Wii enthusiasts.

    I dont have a wii, but interested to hear how helpful it is being to you in the winter weather.

It different that you pick 64 pounds as you goal to lose, to you have number you shooting for on the scales, it has lots to do with height and muscle mass on where you should end up.

Feeling good. I can tell my energy level is already up and so is my drive to do even more to drop the pounds.

This morning I worked out on the wii fit plus again (too cold to walk outside). I did 9 minutes of super hola hoop, and it kicked my booty! I was sweating like you wouldn't believe, it felt great though. I also 'ran' a free run 1.2 miles on the wii this morning. Feels SO good to get up in the morning and workout like that.

Looking forward to a great day!!

I'm sore today!!! Everything from my toes to my fingers hurt. Walking 5 miles a day, doing boot camp wow, I'm pushing myself.

I have a great group of guys at work that are all walking together and that helps ALOT having that group!! Thanks Bry, Mike and Jeff (Tom too but he's not on SP yet).

This morning I didn't get up at 5am and walk 2 miles, I now feel sorta bad that I didn't do that as I have the early part of the week. I did however get up and work on the wii Fit Plus for the first time. Lemme tell ya, super hola hoop and running DOES get the heart rate up and burns a few calories!
