Walking up hill--brrrrr! I'll bet you had some sore calf muscles until you got used to the hill. How is the larger installation working out for you?

Where I now work is a much larger installation so I try to walk during my lunch and if I get in before my start time, I walk up the hill to another part of the installation. This helps make up for the less walking I do than at the previous job. I sometimes have to park about 7 minutes away from my building on mornings when the lot in front of my building is full.

Hi CHEMPHARM! I get the impression that many team members still use their Wii, but are not very active in this team. My Wii is still my go-to exercise. It gets me moving when nothing else does.

Congratulations on the new job, CHEMPHARM! I was hoping they would start a new WII Monopoly but nobody responded to my question in this thread. WII Monopoly would be very flexible with your new job. I'm just trying to WII on my own right now.

Just checking in. I was on the Wii Outdoor challenge a few days in January. I have not done any in Feb. I need to get on it especially now that I started a new Job at the beginning of year that does not involve as much walking as the previous Job. Same employer but different agency so I did not lose any service time.

Is there any chance of a new Wii Monopoly challenge starting in February? I wasn't very good at it, but it was a lot of fun--and something the "less able" team members could participate in.

Confession time - I've had my Wii for 7 years and not used it. Now is the time to get it going.

It must be, ha ha!

Another beautiful day. I'm going to spend some time outside raking pine needles and so on. I can't believe we're having this weather in February. Here's a pic from the deck this morning.


Hope you're feeling better.

Haven't Wii'd the past several days because I finally got out to do some shopping two days. All that walking is enough for me.

Our weather is unusually nice for February. Predicted to reach 50 this week! I can't believe it. Should still be snow on the ground.

When the sun shines the Wii goes wonky. It seems to be affected by bright light, and the curtains don't make it dark enough. With it this warm though I can go for a walk or maybe consider a bike ride.

I hope you get back to the Wii! So far, doing just 10 minutes of something on the Wii each day is my best tool to keeping my eating from running totally amok.

Just checking in. I really have to get back to it. Using the Wii equipment I mean. Atleast for the past few days I have shoveled snow which burns a decent amount of calories.

What's great on top of the Wii Fit is having an active job. So it was double yesterday. Today no Wii cause of a long day on the job. Does anyone know any other Yoga for the Wii other than what's on the Wii Fit?

A glorious day comes from a glorious attitude.

I love the Wii Fit. I love sooooo many of the games. I was on for 51 min today. Time goes by so fast when I am on the Wii. I think it is such a genius way to exercise. I love the Obstacle Course, Bird game ,Penguin balancing game, bubble balancing, bike riding course and the Marching Band the most.

A glorious day comes from a glorious attitude.

Great, 40PUDDLEJUMPER! You don't have to officially sign up--I didn't. I just jumped in and was welcomed. Just scroll way down in the thread and go to the last page (which is the oldest page) and read the instructions in the initial post and... maybe the next 2 or 3 posts after that.

The only change I'm aware of is the typo in the instructions about landing on a square that requires you to complete a Wii Challenge. The text reads; "Once you have completed your assigned challenge post it and then you can continue on with your next 2000 calories." It SHOULD be 2500 calories. I know because that's one of the few squares I've landed on, and Amy had to correct me.

I'm aware of only two current challenges: Amazing Race 2015, which is a team challenge, and WII MONOPOLY, which is an individual challenge.

WII MONOPOLY, under the Challenges, Workouts, and High Scores forum, is good for starting over--like I did three months ago. You'll have to expand the Forum list by clicking on the forum name or clicking "See More Topics" to find it, because WII MONOPOLY is not a Sticky Topic.

WII MONOPOLY is a looong, ongoing challenge where you report your exercise calories burned each day. It does NOT have to be exercise done only on the Wii. When you build up to 2,500 calories, you get a roll of the dice from Team Leader Amy, and move on the Wii Monopoly board. Go down to the initial post to get full instructions.

I'm not able to do a lot compared to the other players, but I really like this challenge! It encourages consistency and accountability in a fun way. Even the fact that luck is a factor in your moves around the board helps me feel good about participating at whatever level I can.

I would REALLY WELCOME someone else who is just starting this challenge!! (And honestly, I would love it if you weren't able to burn 400-600 calories a day at this point. I can't.)

Well I've dusted off the Wii and I am ready to get going. Are there any small 'starting over again' type challenges out there?

Something for me to work towards and someone to compete against. Anyone up for it?

I got Wii Just Dance 4 yesterday; this is the first "Just Dance" game I've bought. I picked this one because its description indicates it's the first one that has a workout mode and, as it's been out for a couple years, it was cheaper than the newer versions.

I've only tried it once so far, but I was pleased. I selected the shortest workout mode. It had warm up and cool down sections and the music was lively and fun. I couldn't follow the dance steps for anything--I just stepped and flailed my arms around and had a great time. Attempting to follow the dance steps distracted me from the fact I was getting exercise--which why I bought the game. I worked up a sweat! This is a good addition to my Wii arsenal of exercise games to keep me from getting bored with exercise.

The only disappointment I had with the workout mode was in the character setup. When you create your character, the icons are quite limited. Most disappointing was there was no place to enter your weight for calorie calculation. The workout does estimate calories burned; however, it's probably based on a 120 lb teenager's body. At my weight, no wonder I thought I was dying when the game said I'd only burned 50 calories. I used the suggestion from another thread in this team and entered the minutes as "cardio dance" in SparkPeople.

Thanks to a new puppy; I have turned on the Wii again. I want to track his weight gain so once I weigh him, I feel obligated to do some Wii exercise. I also am obligated to take him out for walks regularly. Don't advocate getting a puppy but he's helping me get in some exercise and outdoor time!
