Wii be sweaty... [Jun. 27th, 2008|11:02 pm]

Who needs to go to the gym when we are getting a fantastic workout from the Wii?

And I don’t mean the WiiFit either, as we haven’t even got that out of the box yet!! No, I’m referring to the game that came free with the Wii, WiiSports! One game of boxing, baseball and bowling, and I’m just dripping. Yum.

I did the Wii Fitness earlier on too (in WiiSports, not WiiFit) and apparently I have a Wii Fitness Age of 75!!

Stuff that... I’ll show ‘em...

i've had a few days break from it

my calfs were aching like heck and so was the base of my back due to a trapped nerve.

but i usually have my tea then hop on the wii shortly afterwards and do a 40 minute workout.

usuallly the hoops the steps plus followed by a 20 minute jog round the island.

aiming to build this up to an hours exercise and start to invlude some of the muscle workouts shortly.

I love the wii sports tennis, its like playing squash and yeh, it gets the heart pumpiung. Can't say it made me sweaty but certainly helps the breathing.

I'm aiming to build up my aerobic to an half hour solid workout followed by the muscle workouts for stretching, muscle building.

I think then i wil be fit enough and my balance good enough to start going back to taekwondo, at which point i'll start introducing some yoga into the workout afterwards when i get home.

I think my first attempt put me at 42 and im working on getting that down, I've managed to lose about 5 !bs using the wii already so it certainly works and i haven't really changed my eating habits.

Next week is back to water and linmited coffee and no snacks whilst at work.

Then hopefully the wii will have more impact.

heres to a little aslimmer and a lot fitter people.
