Did you make any New Years resolutions this year? I didn’t – I never do, but I think I’m starting to work on an unofficial resolution.
You see, last week I bought a Wii console and Wii Fit. Read my last post to learn what a dummy I was buying the Wii Fit first not knowing I needed the Wii console to run it! LOL Now that’s a newbie mistake if there ever was one!
Ok so I guess you’ve probably figured out what my unofficial resolution is? Yep .. to get fit in 2009.
So far so good. My Wii Fit arrived last Friday, but I had to wait until Monday for the console to arrive before I could get started. I also waited until Monday evening when my husband came home from work to set up the machine. It was easy to set up and I could have easily done it myself, but the problem was figuring out where to plug the darn thing in! We are using too many plugs already. So that’s why I waited for Chris to get home. So Monday evening we only played a few games before dinner and that was it.
I’ve been using the Wii Fit since Tuesday and playing a few of the more active Wii Sports games like boxing and tennis for the last three days. I haven’t used the Wii today because my muscles are ACHING! lol …. Yeah … if the way my body feels today is any indications I won’t be needing any weight loss supplements like Fenphedra to help me reach my goals. Working out and being more active should do the job.
The sad thing is that I bought three more Wii games that work with the balance board early Thursday morning on Amazon Canada and they arrived today … but I’m so sore that I haven’t even unwrapped them! They just look torturous to me right now. LOL
So I’ve got Wii Sports, Wii Play, Wii Fit and today Wii We Ski, Wii Rayman Raving Rabbids TV party and Big Beach Sports arrived. So I have lots of active games and exercises to whip me into shape.
Have you tried any of these games? Particularly the last three I mentioned? The reviews that I read on Amazon were positive and as I said I want to get active games to keep me moving … so are they any good?
If you have any more suggestions for me please let me know … oh and bare in mind that we have a puppy like Labrador Retriever so games with pads on the floor like Outdoor Challenge are probably out for now as I’m sure she’d eat or rip up the pad! LOL
