WoooHooo for the Wii

Our family decided to get a group present this year! We bought a Wii with the Wii fit. My daughter and I brought it home and with my husband's permission, we wrapped it really pretty and put it under the tree... Ok, so we opened it right up and got to playing it. We had to test it out right?

I will admit that when these came out, I was very skeptical. I mean who would imagine burning any calories playing a video game. I am or was VERY anti-video game. Who has time to sit around and play games? Not me! I'm too fidgety to do all that. The Wii is different people would tell me. Yeah, right! Now, I'm one of those Wii believers!

I love it! Between the four of us, we Wiied for over 6 hours! I did yoga, strength training, aerobics, balance exercises, bowled, played golf and tennis. It was great! I also tried out the boxing. That sure felt good too! I'm going to have to remember that when I get stressed!

So, tell any of you have a Wii? What are your favorite games? Do you work up a sweat on it?

  1. I love our Wii! It rocks! My favs are sword fighting, tennis, boxing, and golf. I also love my Fitness Coach--she really gives a good workout and charts progress. Glad you came over to the Wii side! The only thing I would caution is--don't over do it and hurt your shoulder or knee (two most common Wii injuries).
