As some may have noted, I have a Wii and I have the new exercise game called EA Active. I bought a double set of bands needed to allow a partner work out with you, cause my 7 year old likes to do it with me, when I fix up short custom games for us to play. Ok, so that isn't the funny part. Though watching the two of us work out together probably is pretty funny.
The funny part comes from the baby, almost 2, that wants to do anything me or big sis does. So she standing with us and doing the motions with a remote in her hand. This is always funny and she does it with most of our Wii games. But last night it went to a whole new level of funny. I had played a game or two with Shellbee and was starting my real workout with my usual audience... hubby and both kids. So it started with a short run around the track. I am not really good at this yet, cause it is hard for me to jog in place for some reason, so I was kinda running around the living room, back and forth and back and forth... again, funny, but not the funniest part.
Sydnee (baby) decided to join in and in the process we ended up running circles around the coffee table for the duration of the exercise. She was squealing and laughing and acting like I was chasing her, which I was, since I needed to go faster than her little legs will go, and she told Shellbee, "Wun, wun, wun, wun!", so she joined in. Then she told Daddy, "Wun, wun, wun, wun!" and he though he didn't join in during my workout, he did eventually give in and chase her around the coffeee table a few times later in the evening. It was just so funny!
I think we should do that every night just to wear her out and it isn't like she doesn't need the exercise for sure. You guys haven't seen her little (not-so-little) legs, but she needs to get to work on them... LOL!
Anyway, it was a great memory to make!! And during my 24 minute workout I burned 202 calories.. and still had fun!! I love EA Active!

I am down a full 30 lbs since the beginning of 2009!!!
Wow!!!! I am so pumped at the moment! I got the new Wii game EA Active and I have really been trying to use the cardio workouts. This is the first I have really worked out on a regular basis in years and the first since starting Sensa.
Sunday to Thursday = 4 Workouts = 123 Minutes = 1000 Calories burned.
And if you knew the hectic schedule I have been on this week, you would know what a real accomplishment this is for me, to not only do it... but to want to do it!
Summer is almost here and my schedule will really allow me to get to work on me till August! I still have 1 more week on Month 4 tastants... so 2 more full months to go before the end of the 1st 6 month portion of my transformation.
New tip for us busy people... cause we need them really bad. Monday I cooked spaghetti, in a large quantity like I always do on a busy week, so there are plenty of left overs. And last night I got home a little later than I would have liked to be eating dinner, but having the meal already prepared and only needing to microwave it was a big help. But that isn't the new tip... and it may be a little wordy for me to explain... but here goes. Tonight my daughter is performing a full length ballet production of Cinderella. She has to be there by 5pm. I have to take off work at 4pm to get her there with costume and make up and have time to feed her. The show doesn't start until 6:30, so after I drop her off, I have time to run home, change myself, come back. And I knew cooking wouldn't be an option. So here is the tip... finally... though I ate leftovers last night, while I was in the kitchen and feeding baby and doing dishes and all that fun... I cooked dinner for tonight and put it in the fridge. Now this may seem wierd, to cook a whole meal just to store it for another day, but it will make the difference in my evening tonight in so many little ways that it was totally worth the effort. Of course, I am not talking cooking a real real meal. All I did was cut up some chicken breast and cook in a skillet with all my favorite seasonings, then tonight I am just going to put the chicken on top of a large salad. How easy is that!!!??? Anyway, just thought I would share... how life can totally rushed and with a little creativity, you can still succeed in reaching your goals!!!

I finally changed weight brackets!!! I have lost just over 10% of my body weight so far! And I am already 1.5 lbs into the next 10% loss goal that is 24 more pounds! (that means only 22.5 left till end of second goal. I am using my new EA Active for the Wii and loving it. I am not a gym person, who has time with small children and working full time. So this way the kids can watch and help and get in the way, but that is what makes it family fun!
I updated my virtual me..she hasn't really changed since the last time, but she is ready for the pool now! I can't wait to make another one at the end of the summer, when she is another 20+ lbs lighter and worked up her tan a little better! LOL!
