So I FINALLY broke down and purchased a Wii. I've had a Wii fit collecting dust in my closet because I refused to put out $200.00 on yet another technical thingamabobby! But after failing to win one after entering every single imaginable give-away, after bribing over-indulged children I knew who had two or three, and after driving to the local Sports Authority on 15 separate occasions over the past year, I decided it was time.
No more excuses. I live a fit life, but just not fit enough. I feel that if I add this extra option, I can burn those extra calories that have somehow alluded my aging metabolism! Yes, I need the help of the Wii.
Why? Well, for a number of reasons. The first being I am overweight. Sure, I do yoga every single day, I walk my dog half a mile and I am still 15 pounds from where I wish to be! Second, my friend from High School is getting married over the holidays and the dress I want to wear looks good, but I want it to look GREAT, and lastly my son threatened to sell my Wii Fit Plus that I received at a Wii Party, if I did not use it! So I put my money where my mouth is, literally.
I slapped down that $179.00 and am actually very happy that I did! I spend 25 minutes doing yoga, boxing, running and balancing! It was truly fun and engaging. So keeping in tune with my fitness goals throughout the remainder of the year I will be sharing my journey and hope that you will be sharing your thoughts!
