Days 18-23/1000 New toys are so much fun! :-)


Sunday, May 08, 2011

I didn't realise I hadn't blogged all week, so this is going to be a rather long list of exercise, which you are more than free to skip if you don't want to know what sort of things you can do in the name of fitness with a Wii. :-)

If you are interested in adding a new dimension to your Wii Fit Plus experience, however, you may want to read on...

I have added a new and free toy to my collection which has created an interesting twist to using the Wii Fit Plus. This is a website that includes a random Wii Fit Routine generator:

www.wiifitroutine.com/wi
i-fit-workout/routine-gene
rator


You join and create a free account and this gives you access to the generator. It allows you to mix and match your Wii Fit Plus to you. For example, today I chose a random Easy 30 Minute Wii Fit Weight Loss Routine and it gave me a lovely selection of exercises across the range available (see Day 23 for details). The workout generator also works if you only have the original Wii Fit. You just disable the Wii Fit Plus option. :-)

So, what have I done this week to keep moving:

Cardio Slimdown with Leslie Sansone
Well.... you can't use the Wii ALL the time! emoticon

emoticon emoticon emoticon

Aside from that there is very little to report. I have taken a break from the Nutrition tracker. I decided last week to see how I get on without it. I pop in to use it to tally up a new recipe but I feel I am pretty good at working my days and keeping more or less to the straight and narrow now. :-)

Also, I wear weighted gloves when working out now. They came as a package with the risers for the Wii balance board, so I try and remember to put them on when jogging and walking with Leslie Sansone. I know opinion is somewhat divided as to their usefulness, but hey, I have them, so I might as well use them. I can certainly feel my arms this evening after wearing them through the cardio slimdown with Leslie Sansone, and clapping is a little tricky when you have them on! LOLOL

Note to self: Heavier hands hit each other harder and faster than they normally would!

Been an active week, huh? LOL
Hugs,
Lex xxx

    We have a Wii, but I have never thought of using it for a fitness programme.

After I have finished my 30 days of Shred, I will take a look at the Wii options.

You certainly seem to make very good use of yours x.

    I think the Wii has been a wonderful addition to your life - it has really revitalised your exercise routine and you are super happy to do it. It works!
