I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for trends…BUT I’m usually the last one on the bandwagon. I just got a Wii for Christmas only this year and I’m kicking myself for never asking for one sooner. I love that I can download practically any game EVER and play it instantly. I love my Netflix’s on it for the Xena re-runs and the quirky movies it has for my viewing pleasure. BUT the best part about it is…There is a lil addition called a Wii Fit. My New Diet Guru.
Now putting all the cards out on the table I don’t think I’m a heavy person or a thin person but I have my muffin top days and a bit of a pouchy tummy when I sit down. BUT I’m all legs & have a short torso, I have a medium frame with some muscles left from track field events, and a 36D chest. From all of that I know I’m not proportional and will NEVER be a 120 pounds. However I’d like to be less than the 175 pounds I was when I started the Wii Fit on Sunday night. I’ve struggled trying to get motivated to use my gym membership and listen to those magazine tips that unless you’re the main lady in Cirque de soliel you can’t do. I tried doing the "17 Day Diet Book" and they weren’t kidding when they said, “Cleansing Vegetables”. I didn’t last long on following it word for word but I’m doing the drinking of the green tea. A lot of green tea. Anywho back to the Wii Fit.
I started it on Sunday night and OMG there are sooo many little games to play and there is one where you move your hips to hit these bumper things to add the numbers on them up to 10. The music sounds like 70’s porn. IT’S HYSTERICAL! While you’re laughing and swinging your hips for a minute you will burn 4 to 5 calories. There is a flap your wings bird game, Snow-ball fighting, boxing, Yoga poses exercising, and a lot other ones that are all enticing. YOU WILL FEEL THE BURN! You will actually have a moment where you stand there and go “Ohh I’m sweating…Eww…BUT that was Awesome!”
My favorite game is the Hula-Hoop. I advise if you buy it to not “Try it Out” in front of your boyfriend or girlfriend. You will feel stupid. The giggles will make you a lil mad but the feeling will pass when the calorie counter will spike up!
I started it on Sunday and now it’s Wednesday and I’ve already LOST about 1.5 pounds. Granted it’s probably water weight but I feel motivated, and they have a graph so you can see how much you’re losing each day. It is so nice to SEE RESULTS!!! It weighs you and everything and keeps track of it all for you automatically. I absolutely adore it and can’t wait to go home and do more of it. If I keep it up who knows…
Target has a bundle ON SALE NOW for $89.99. You get a Wii balance board, Wii Fit Plus Game, AND the Biggest Loser Game. (I haven’t tried that game out yet.)
Do you have a Wii Fit? Do you Love it or Hate it?
