Three days a week I begin with Yoga and do each of the moves I can (I'm not up to the balancing on one leg stuff yet--or a few others either!) at least twice. Then I do the same thing on all the strength exercises I can do. By the time I finish with all of that its been about 30 minutes.
I then take a short break (maybe 5 minutes or more if I have something I need to get done) then I come back and start on the aerobic exercises. I start with the Super Hula Hoop and do it twice. Then I do a short run before doing the step aerobics. I usually do 30 minutes of just the step aerobics. Then I do about 15 to 20ish minutes of the rhythm boxing (I LOVE THE BOXING!) before cooling down with about 10 to 15 minutes of the balance games. I wrap it all up with the lotus focus. My kids think that one is so funny for some reason.
On the days I don't do Yoga and Strength training (every other day) I just do the Aerobics and the balance games.
So far I am loving it all. It's the best workout program I've ever found. So much more fun and easy to commit to than anything else I've every tried. :)

I wish you are able to program the yoga and strength moves together and make it into a moving sequence. I hate how you have to go in and out of the menu to do a move. Sometimes i forget what move i was supposed to do to complete the mini-workout.
Warm up in the short jog, then yoga to help with stretches and other added stretches then strength 3 times a week then balance or aerobic or vice versa. Then a short cool down run again or just walk fast doesn't make the record well but is a good cool down then stretch to finish up. This all can take some time with all the extra screens, but makes for a rounded workout.
motivation really is—taking responsibility for conscious actions—and how to prevent it from waning
I use the Wii Fit as XT to my running so I do all the yoga for warm up (I find it naturally progresses that way with the poses based on previous yoga classes) followed by all the strength training exercises. That usually takes me to about 30 minutes. I do about 15-20 minutes of aerobic exercise and then the balance stuff is my fun/cool-down. I do about 45-50 minutes (currently, it will probably get higher as my reps/available options unlock).
