For my birthday I bought myself the Wii Fit Plus. I already owned the Wii Fit and used to use it regularly. I have just got out of the habit of working out from home and knew I needed to start back up. Rachel told me at Mom 2.0 Summit how she had let her Wii Fit sit for nearly 8 months without playing and then bought the Plus and hadn’t stopped since. At the time she had already lost 15 pounds, which is great!
The girls and I participate in several 5Ks in the Spring and since the first one is coming up this month I thought it was about time I get into shape. Or maybe the better statement is start working towards getting into shape. Also I’d love to look better by mid April when we go on our Disney cruise. It’d be nice to tone up some.
Tonight was my 8th night doing the Wii Fit Plus. I am so sore I can hardly lift my arms. I haven’t done it every night since my birthday but most of them. The kids are enjoying it too. Matter of fact Noah just got done jogging which is so dang cute and Gabby did the Hula Hoop which is wonderful for her physical therapy. It truly helps her with coordination. We have done quite a bit of multiple-player mode games as a family. The chicken game is hilarious but fun. We spend most of the time laughing at one another while we are working out. The whole game system is so fun you forget you are actually burning calories. I must admit I love it and it is addicting. The obstacle course is my favorite although I have a hard time stopping to admit defeat. I keep pressing retry until I’m about to fall over, some nights. However I have almost mastered the advanced level now!
We are walking in the Make-a-Wish Foundation 5K on March 27th in Gabby’s honor. If you live local to the DFW area we would love for you to join our Team Gabby and walk with us.
Full Disclosure: I purchased the Wii, Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus with my own money. This is not a sponsored post and all opinions are 100% mine that I wanted to share.
