moving is the key!
Saturday, March 06, 2010
When I decided to get fit, I bought the Wii with the Wii Fit. This made working out fun, not work. I know some people say it isn't a real workout. I guess it depends on which programs you do. For someone who didn't do ANYTHING just moving was a good start! I've bought most of the exercise programs that are available for the Wii and I like some more than others. I think the EA Active Sports is my favorite - it gives you a workout, but it is fun. My Fitness Coach is possibly more effective, but it is mostly just work, not a game. I know I was losing weight at a better rate when I was using MFC.
I also use the Leslie Sansone Walk At Home program. When I first started it was tough to do just one mile. Now I routinely do 4 miles and can do the 5 mile DVD's.
I joined a gym, but to be honest, I don't go there as often as I should. I'll get back to it soon (I hope!)
I think that no matter what you choose to do, the main thing is to do SOMETHING! I was a real couch potato (even shaped like one!) but I am better now!
