Yesterday I managed to score a Wii Fit Balance Board - dang, those things are harder to find than puppy teeth in the carpet!
My husband and I are REALLY enjoying using the Wii together - for the first time in my life I'm doing exercise that DOESN'T BORE ME TO TEARS.
We love the Walk It Off game. You step in time to music and the game counts your steps as you walk around an 'island'. You also have to click on tokens to 'build' things that you pay for with the steps you match to the beat. We usually end up cracking up - and today we spent 40 minutes walking at various tempos.
We set up the Balance Board - lol - it asked each of us at the end of our evaluations if we had difficulty walking without tripping. Smart-ass game! Yeah, we're dorks - it's amazing we can even walk to the mailbox without killing ourselves.
