Lovin’ Wii Fit

Posted in Journal at 10:50 pm by Jenn

I am really enjoying the Wii Fit that I got for Christmas.  The Balance and Aerobic games are my favorite, though I have done the Yoga and Strength exercises as well.

I love the little Mii characters.  Scott’s is a little pudgy which I think is hilarious.  He is above normal BMI so his Mii has a little pudgy belly!  My Mii thankfully doesn’t have a pudgy belly (which is probably why I think it’s hilarious on Scott’s).

The one thing that I have confirmed about myself in the past 4 Wii Workout days is that I am just and uncoordinated as I thought.  I am just as horrible at the Step Aerobics on Wii Fit as I am in real life!  I am not coordinated at all.  In fact the Wii asked me the other day if I trip over my feet when I walk (or something like that)…I laughed, but yes, in fact I do!  It also says that I am “Unbalanced” which I think is referring to my athletic ability not my mental status, but either would be accurate at this point.

Another thing that I’ve learned is that a sports bra really is a good idea, a necessity almost.  I took off on a two minute run (in place) the other day and almost knocked myself out.  I think I remember Monica saying something about a sports bra in one of her posts over at Transplanting Me.  I finished the run but had to hold my boobs the entire time. 

Tonight I did Balance, Aerobics and Strength which means tomorrow I’ll do Balance, Aerobics and Yoga.  I’m going to alternate.  We’ll see what happens.  I’d set a goal to reach a BMI of 22 in 2 months.  I think that’s 12 pounds.  Reasonable.

I had planned to keep a Wii Fit diary of my progress, but it’s already been done.  See this article for one woman’s 50 day attempt at fitness.

    LOL! Yes a sports bra would be in order;) if you’re holding them while you run! Too funny. We were playing the wii last night at my friend’s house and it’s a blast. Pete’s already on a kick to try to get me out to buy one, of course…3 days after Christmas.

  5. Hey, it takes a lot of work to keep that Mii belly un-pudgy…and don’t I know it!

    Re: Jen D’s comment – they should come out with Wii Fit Sports bras. I might just cave an buy one of the combo packs just to get the official hat.

    This is a video I just posted today about my own Wii Fit obsession. Thought you might like.
