We've been enjoying the Wii Fit for the last week, and have some pictures to share.
This is Aaron doing a balance game where you walk across a high wire. Maree is just pretending.
This is Aaron (in his standard uniform), doing a side plank in the strength training mode. The side plank is coupled with a push-up. He actually does it quite well, and it's way cute to watch.
I've really enjoyed all the exercises. There is even a feature where you can do "free step" which is sort of like Dance Dance Revolution where you are to follow the steps on the screen. Well, instead you can watch television while the Wiimote ticks off the steps and counts them, and also counts down the time (however much time you have designated to do the exercise). Basically you are just stepping on and off the balance board, which is similar to going for a good paced walk. I love that I can watch my favorite TV shows AND be working out at the same time instead of sitting like a lump on the couch.
The sad thing about the Wii Fit is that if you eat like crap over the weekend and then do the body test, you will watch your little Mii person puff up to indicate the 2.8 pounds you gained. :(
Back to egg whites and whole wheat toast for breakfast, lots of fruits and veggies, lean meats, and no sugar, white flour, and processed foods. I can't stand to see my little Mii looking all chubby. Oh, and the icing on the cake is if you have gained weight it then asks you why you think you might have gained...it really is like having a trainer there with you.
