Fitness Friday Post

Well, I haven't been as valiant this past week on the Wii Fit as I tried to be, but I'm still pretty proud of myself. And I won on the Wii Fit Mommies Forum yesterday! Yippee!

I worked out for over half an hour on Friday, Saturday, Monday and Wednesday. Sunday and Tuesday I only did my body test and nothing else and Thursday I didn't even turn it on (although I did play bowling on Wii Sports with my little boys.) Both Friday and Saturday I did a full row of Yoga and then the Strength training exercises they told me to do to complete the workouts. I'd also do some aerobics and MAN WAS I SORE Saturday night and Sunday. Monday and Wednesday I did more Aerobics and Balance Games and just a little Yoga.

I'm really loving doing this, and I feel pretty motivated, both by myself and by my 2 kids and husband who are also all doing it. I don't trust the scale on it though, it'll tell me I've gained 10 lbs one day and that I've lost 10 lbs the next day. Ignoring those few random outliers, I think it says I've lost about 5 lbs since I started right after Christmas. I haven't noticed it on my body yet, but I really hope that happens soon.

I'm also really hoping to get pregnant again soon (we've been trying for well over a year) and feel confident that this will be a good way to exercise when I'm preggo, although it may throw my balance off some. Pray for me that I get blessed with another child soon!

Wow!!! You're doing great! I don't trust the scale either. I just say 'whatever' when it tells me something. But it also depends on the time of day you weigh too, just like a 'regular' scale'. But you're doing gooooood...woo hoooo!

Well, the title of your site sure is appropriate after your awesome day 4 win! Ha! I was told that with the supervision and permission of your doctor, the Wii Fit is a great tool to stay fit during pregnancy. Looking forward to keeping up with your progress!

Congrats on your win! Do you have really soft carpeting that the scale could be off?
Have fun and am looking forward to your announcement when it happens.

Hoping for a ++BFP++ for you soon. It should be good during pg because most of the aerobics are low impact and the step would be really good. With my first pg, I was exercising with a trainer and he worked me hard... unless your doctor advises you otherwise, go for it.

**I keep joking that Nintendo needs to come up with a Wii Fit Pregnancy before I have my next kidd**

Congrats on winning! I was going to ask the same thing about soft carpeting. Try putting something firm, like a plastic placemat or doormat under the balance board. Also, do you have those extenders for the balance board? They say to use those on carpet. You're doing great!

Congrats on the win!!! Way to go!
I would second using the extenders on carpeting!
