Don't Think About It, Just Do It

It helps me to get started walking if I just put on some tennis shoes, wear whatever I have on, open the door and start walking down the street. Walk just 10 minutes from my house and by the time I get back, I've walked 20 minutes.

My SparkSummary Calendar

I was just told about this feature and it rocks. It tracks your daily calories, fitness minutes & SparkPoints. You can look back at a week or a month and see how you made out. You get gold stars on the days you made your calorie target. Now I want to count gold stars and maybe make them a goal!

Wii "Just Dance"

I tried this out the other day and I am addicted! You do real dance moves to fun music (current and older). I danced for 10 songs (took about 30-40) and I burned 325 cal according to my HRM. It didn't feel like exercise!
