The Wii could become addictive! I played for 55 minutes today!

emoticon Great Job!

Each perfect step, and okay step are so many points each. ( I think one and 2, but am unsure.)

Finally got out the wii yesterday. Played Just Dance for 40min!

I found the extra exercises on my Wii Fit Plus... never knew they existed! The flapping the arms like a bird to go from one spot to another really got my under arm "flaps" moving! LOL!
I LOVED the bicycle part! Have a whole new world to explore!
I spent 22 minutes today. I think this will increase SOON! It was so much fun this morning! I think I will still start out with 15 minute of Adstep, then go on to play for another 15 minutes.
Have to find my numchucks... I KNOW I have them... just where are they? Maybe if I bribe St. Anthony, I'll find them... emoticon

My balance board, too, is getting a bit lonely. I'll have to fire it up today. Also considering cranking the heat in my apartment and going a few rounds with wii sports boxing. Way back in the day, based on a wrestler friend's say so, I picked up a vinyl sweatsuit, and I just found the top of that set. Put that on, move around just a bit, and the sweat just starts pouring...think I'll try incorporating that into the in-home exercises.

Well, I went 5 days without cranking up my Wii. It was not happy! LOL!
I am finding the 10 minutes of ADS is not enough. So, 20 minutes is my present time on the board. It is a good warm up for my mornings.
Still haven't explored the WIO.
Other things in life, like my DH and managing his strokes, is taking precedence. As long as I get my body test and 20 minutes each day in, I will be maintaining. Right now it is good enough.
Thank goodness I have my Wii! It is still holding me accountable, and any movement right now is gift!

I started out to do my usual 10 minutes of AdStep, but I ended up doing 20 minutes! The first 10 minutes seemed too easy. The next five were ok, but not real challenging. The next five I could tell I hadn't been doing that much. So, it looks like I am upping my AdStep to 20 minutes each morning!
Nasty, chilly, rainy day here today. I am going to go play with my WIO...

24 minutes with Wii Personal Trainer. My apartment is so small that I was able to make a skillet stew while I was also doing the strenght training (in between exercises). When pressed for time, I'll take it as long as I don't get sauce on the remote!

I found the Walk It Out game today... I traded in 5 old games I'd never used, and I got the WIO for $2.08! It didn't have a manual, so I found it online and downloaded it. I think it is going to be really fun to use!

I ended up with 36 minutes Wii total yesterday. 15 minutes was the AdSt. I tried the tilt table... it was interesting. I made it to level 5... once! LOL!
Going to stop by GameStop today and trade in my games I do not want. I hope they have Walk It Out somewhere...

I have the Wii Fit Plus. I do the Advanced Step pretty much every day(although I haven't the past three... been sick). I reset my Wii January 1, so I can be better at using it. I had gone almost a year without it. I am looking for the Walk It Out , but it doesn't look like it is available new any longer. I have the Biggest Loser and the Jillian Michales ones, and they do not jive with my RA, so I am going to go to Game Stop and see if they will trade and give me credit. They may have a used WIO, too. I am working on the balance games. I do the Yoga breathing. I'm still relearning about Fit Plus. The original sports game that came with my Wii has a fun bowling game. I can do 30 minutes of it. I am not coordinated at baseball of golf IRL, so how can I be in virtual reality? LOL!
I am attempting to do hula hoop. All DH does is laugh at me... my hips do not compute...LOL!
Thanks for beginning the thread!

I don't think it's the parade one. It's all in Japanese so I just look at the animation. The characters are doing it on a stage and the audience is cheering. It's on the WiiFit Plus software. I was surprised at the amount of calories it says I burned in just half an hour.

My favorite is probably the advance step. Table tilt is fun too!! My least fav would be the circus juggling one, I'm not very good at it.

I have several other fitness games, other than Wii Fit my favorites are EA Active (both the 1st and 2nd), and My Fitness Coach. Would not recommend the older Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimate, it has "issues" reading your steps no matter what activity you are trying to do, and is hard to navigate. I don't know if the newer ones (same title) are any better or not.

I'm still enamoured of the balance snowboard game, but I'm gradually working my way through all the others. Since I don't understand the Japanese written on the screen or what the 'trainer' says half the time, there's a lot of guess work trying to figure out how to do it. I'm looking for any recommendations, so that I can go cruise the secondhand Wii games corner at the local used software resale shop. Not sure about the NFL training camp though. Do I have to hit one of those sleds?

Anyone else have the wii fit, or other such games?

It's a 'discussion' Yoitle and I have been having, more or less, one comment on a blog post or spark page at a time, so I thought I might put up a thread to make conversation easier.

Last we left off, I'd been asked which my favorite items on the wii fit game were, and to date, I've mostly been playing the balance games, especially the table tilt game(s), and dabbling at the yoga poses. My brother game me another fitness type wii game at Christmas, the "NFL training camp" game, and I've also been trying that, although I've managed to annoy one body part or another every time I've used it (all of twice so far!).
