If yoga and pilates are the frosting on the exercise cake, then wii fit is the sprinkles. So today I guess I had some cake and sprinkles with no frosting.

My day started with a trip to the gym. I remembered Eating Bird Food‘s (how cute is that name by the way?) post about walking on the treadmill at 4.5 and thought I’d give it a try…so hard! I found it actually easier to run.

So I ran 2.5 miles and then walked another mile. After that I hit the weight room and worked my triceps, shoulders, back and did some leg presses. Then I grabbed a med ball and did some ab work.

This evening it was time for some sprinkles with the Wii Fit! This is a very fun game. My family is so cute! I love this opening screen. Oh, and my son is a huge Star Wars fan so that’s actually C3-P0 playing.

I started with some balance board games…

…ya, I can’t do this one…darn bubble on the river…

then some aerobics…

that’s right, “calorie incinerator”…

and I finished with some strength training…


I played for one hour and four minutes.

Better than sitting on my butt watching tv or playing on the computer!

First things first…we have the Wii Fit and I LOVE IT! This game is seriously addicting.

My favorite game is Step Aerobics.

This is a far cry from Adam’s Advanced Step Class at Gold’s Gym in Santa Barbara (from 12 years ago), but it is fun. Picture guitar hero for your feet. You have to step up and down to the beat. The beginner level is combinations (and I use that term loosely) of basic step and over the top. And it’s slow, real slow. The advanced level is combinations of basic step, over the top, side step, and step kick.

…and now for some accountability…

Monday Solutions:

This morning I ran 2 miles and then walked 2 miles. We finished dinner at 6:45pm and then I went on a 30 minute walk. After the kids are in bed, it’s Wii Fit time…more photos and information at the end of this post. Wii fit for 1 hour 11 minutes including all strength training exercises, aerobic step and hula hoop, balance board and penguin. Fun Fun Fun!

Tuesday: Today I went to the gym and ran on the treadmill for 30 minutes (2.65 miles).

Wednesday: 2 mile walk this morning. Finished eating at 6pm. Went on a 25 minute walk with the dog and then played Wii Fit for 1 hour (all balance and aerobics games).

Thursday: Ran on the treadmill for 30 minutes (2.7 miles). Then went in to the weight room for walking lunges and arms. Finished eating dinner at 6:30pm and then went on a 25 minute walk. I would love to blog about the peach cobbler from the other night. But it requires a piece to be cut and heated up, so I’ll skip the food blogging tonight and opt for some more wii fit!

Friday:  2 mile run then a 2 mile walk this morning.  1 hour of wii fit this afternoon.
