Feeling Fit on Friday

I finally gave in and bought the new EA Sports Active - More Workouts for Wii.  I have been debating for a couple of weeks now on whether or not I wanted to give it a try.  I am SO glad I did.  It has been an awesome addition to my diet and exercise plan.  I am doing the six week challengeWii Fit Balance Board and so far I'm loving it.  I totally dig the warm up and cool down sessions.  You do not need to use the wii remote or nun-chuck to do these exercises so you can be more relaxed and at ease while you are cooling down.  The only problem I seemed to discover while doing the floor exercises is that my 17 month old daughter wants to come sit on me while I am doing them so it makes accomplishing them a bit more difficult.  You can also weight yourself using the so this will help you keep track of your weight in the game in addition to the extra activities you can add and the journal survey.  The work outs are more intense and I feel like I am getting much more of a work out than before.  I am really hoping that I can step up my weight loss with this new program.  Instead of reading relacore reviews or looking for the next best diet pill, I am working out and dieting. Hopefully these lifestyle changes I am making will not only have good results for me, but in teaching my children the new healthy eating habits, it will help them make the right food choices in life as well!  I have decided to change my weigh-in day to Friday.  I think it will make things easier and less stressful for me to do it this way because I tend to stay on the wagon more during the week than on the weekends.  My rest days for the six week challenge are Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday so I think things will just be easier for me to weigh in on Friday.  My Friday results were good.  I have lost 3.5 pounds this week.  This brings my total weight loss to 13.5 pounds.  I'm so stoked to be losing weight and feeling great!

My son has loaned me his WiFit but I've yet to try it. You've spurred me on. Well done on the weight loss!
