Hi Jackie, I've had my wii fit plus for about a month now, and love the variety it offers - yoga, muscle, balance and aerobics. Some of the games are such fun that it really encourages you to move more, I find. :-) My wii fit age has been everything from 20 to 52, and I'm 47. It all depends for me on how awake I am and what time of day it is. I've taken recently to doing the body test first thing to get my best weight for the day, and as a result my wii fit age has suffered as I'm not fully awake when I step on it. LOL My balance suffers when I'm tired. I am currently using a combination of the My Wii Fit Plus options, challenges set by friends, and a website that has a random exercise generator for Wii Fit Plus:
You have to join to access the generator - just the usual username password stuff - it is a free site - donations optional. It is worth joining because the generator is a great tool that alllows you to pick from a variety of options and gives you a good workout. :-) I find it adds a new dimension and more variety to my days when I use it. :-) Glad to meet you. Hugs, Lex xxx
My name is Jackie and I've been a SP'er for a while but on and off - lately mostly off.
Recently a friend re-introduced me to my wii board and I got Fit Plus which I have been playing with for the past week.
My wii fit age seems to vary a lot (is that normal?). Usually it comes in around 42, which is -5 on my actual age. That is a bit surprising since I am both very overweight and also very out of shape.
I am trying to do a daily fitness test and 20 minutes of mixed stretches and cardio. I willnup that number as the exercises get easier.
I am weighing myself in kilograms partly because I don't want to get all hung-up on numbers and also because that was the default of my board. I've lost a little over a kilogram so far. I'm not actively dieting at this point -- just trying to drink more water, be more active and watch my evening eating. I log my food into SP, or at least I try to do that daily - just to increase my self-awareness.
I am hoping this group will help me stay motivated to keep up with the wii and achieve a greater fitness level.
