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!

    Agreed - in the beginning, every little bit helps.

    Definitely look into Walk It Out for Wii -- it's a lot more fun than Leslie (no offense to her!). It's probably my favorite fitness "game"! [Edited because you probably already have this, lol.]

    So true! emoticon on your progress! I was thinking about the Wii Fit, but haven't gotten around to buying it yet. I do the WATPs DVDs too.
