Wii Fit, Day 2

It took me longer to get back to the Fit, but I finally carved out 45 minutes last night.

First, I did the body test, and I weighed exactly the same as last Wednesday night. I did better on the balance tests, though, so my Wii Fit Age was down in the 20's! Bryan has definite issues with how much credit Wii Fit gives you for good, even, balance. He's arguably in better shape than me and definitely stronger, but the Wii Fit loves me more. Thanks, Miss Melva, for all of the posture lessons as a young dance student!

Next, I tried out the strength training exercises. I did the single leg extension, torso twists, lunges, push-up and side plank, and jackknife. I barely got through the lunges, and I'm feelin' it today. The push-ups were the hardest, and I even let myself do girl ones. Hard!

Then I went to the aerobics section and did the hula hoop a couple of times, basic step, and a basic run. Hula Hoop was hilarious, and I can see how that would get hard. I think I will like step - I'll have to add arms. I think the run would be best as a warm-up. Running in place just isn't as hard as running outside!

Finally, I headed over to the balance games to try to top some of Bryan's records he'd stayed up late last Wednesday to establish. It took me 5-6 times to beat his best score on the Ski Slalom, and I also tried the ski jump. My legs were toast, though.

It took 45 minutes to gain 30 credits, so I'll have to remember that. For now, 30-credit sessions are my goal. I'm having fun just playing everything, but I should probably have a plan eventually. I know there are programs online you can use, so we'll see.
