Well, the best I can figure is I am taking the WiiSports Tennis (actually came with the Wii YAY) and playing both parts of my side, instead of getting a partner. Then I choose best of 5 games.

Then I play tennis as if I were on a court. I don't care if I win, and I usually don't, but I work it hard.

Whenever they are showing a recap I walk in place and keep hitting the A button like a spastic monkey to get it to go away. Not sure if that helps, but it makes me feel better.

I play 2 sets of games like that, then move my tired arse to Boxing and play that like I am on a trampoline and have no boxing strategy whatsoever. Flinging my arms and jumping around. I am sooo glad no one can see me. About 3 games of that and you have yourself 30 minutes of working out.

I check the mail in Wii to make sure it says at least 32 minutes in the game, to make up for starting times, etc.

Then here, I count it as tennis. It may not be accurate, but there is no wii sports category, and its pretty close with the running and swinging.

and DOH! HEY there sweetie, so glad you found us here!

I had bursitis in my shoulder last year. Its a lot better now but when I knit a lot it acts up a little. Good Luck with healing- I know how painful it is.

Hi JerseyPrincess! I just joined the team. I recently was diagnosed with achilles bursitis and have not been able to take my long evening walks. I had not thought of hooking up and the Wii and just having some fun while moving my body!!

I think I can I think I can I know I can!!!

HI everyone... I am new to this team. Me and my boyfriend have a wii and he plays more than I do. I never really thought of using it as a way to get my exercise in. What games do you play? How do you count the calories? I am so excited and I am sure my boyfriend will be to!
