Let's See If I Can Keep The Streak ALIVE!!

Monday, September 03, 2012

Okay after a really lazy summer I have decided to get back into my workout routine and for the past week I have managed to make step count and used my Wii Fit Plus 4 out of 7 days. Today is day 1 of a new week.

I managed to make my step count for the entire week. Granted I have my goal set at 8,000 steps not 10,000 but I am trying to build back up. I know that my NDS "game" will ask if I want to bump my count up to 9,000 after I officially log my steps for the day. It is silly but I have refused to use my steps to draw pictures of various animals, places, objects, etc on my NDS Walking game until I have kept my step count above the set limit for 2 weeks. I have until this week only managed 3-4 days out of each week all summer.

I am no longer accepting excuses for my laziness. I know I am working full-time and also doing an online course, but there are others who are doing far more than I am and still manage to make time to get exercise in.

I am starting with my Wii Fit Plus again and will work my way back to using my XBox Kinect for my UFC workout and the dance games I have. I have also gotten back into doing a walk/run once a week with my 17-year-old daughter and hope to start going on bike rides with the 14-year-old alone or with both of the girls on the day we don't run.

I am also trying to organize my desk so that it is easier to take notes and such while I am studying. Unfortunately my monitor takes up a lot of room and I am not sure where else I can place it so that I have more room. I may figure it out eventually, or I may just break down and finally buy a flat screen monitor.

I hope that everyone has had a great long weekend so far (for those that actually "celebrate" Labour Day). Time to go relax for the evening.

    Work those steps! I know you can do that more often, you'll thank yourself for it.

    flat screens are geek paradise.
Great determination with your games fitness...I think I'll set some up with the kiddies today. Kinect is lonely.
How long is your course?
Um, monitor...Gigantor's monitor is one of those massive ones that takes up a large portion of the desk...he stacked it up on a pile of books. He's pretty tall so, it was more for ergonomics so he wouldn't hafta to kink his neck, but, maybe that'll save a little space.
Our Labor Day was our first one we celebrated and it was pretty much epic with beach, mini-golf and fireworks. I hope you're getting 'relaxing' in!
