My good friends at Nintendo decided to play Easter Bunny this year! I was thrilled to receive not only a Wii, but a Wii Fit Plus! They even included an awesome sport bag, yoga mat, water bottle and headband.
The timing of this gift couldn’t have been better. I have really been thinking about doing some at home workouts. Notice I said “thinking” cause I really hadn’t made any moves to do so. In fact, the only moves I was doing was rolling my big butt into the kitchen for more chipsicecreamwinelemonadefishsticks.
Setting up my system was easy and I loved how small and sleek the Wii was. I worked out both Saturday and Sunday and today I can’t believe it but I am actually sore. Yesterday at brunch I noticed how sore my biceps were. It didn’t seem like I did that much, but clearly it was enough to tax my muscles.
I love the variety of workout options available on the Wii Fit Plus. So far I have tried Yoga, Step Aerobics, Boxing, Kung Fu, Hula Hoops and a couple of balance games. It’s so cool!
Last night before I went to bed, I set up my balance board so I could get up this morning at 5am and workout. Unfortunately, my brain did not follow my heart and I slept right through until 7am. So today when I get home I will get my workout on. I can’t wait to do boxing again. And I think I’ll do some strength training too!
