I'm a WiiFit Mom!
I really don't have anything profound to say today. I've said lots of profound things in the past week, but today I am just excited because I have almost conquered the Bubble Balance Exercise on my new Wii Fit!

We've been wanting to get a Wii Fit for ages, but our town has been sold out for months. But a few days ago my husband found one by chance, and boy is it fun! The kids love it!

I'm still not sure if it actually will get me in shape. I'm not doing that badly; what I need is more aerobic exercise, but I get that from jogging while listening to podcasts! I find the step exercises on the Wii Fit kind of boring, and I've already unlocked the advanced step program. But the balance and the strength training seem really good. I'm already an expert at the Yoga.

The neat thing is that my kids are doing it like crazy. Our biggest problem is getting them off of the Wii, not getting them to do it. I'm not sure how long that will last, but at least they're getting some exercise now.

Of course, spring time is a stupid time to start this, since we'll all be outside soon anyway, but it's fun for now.

So for all of you who are Wii Fit Moms, tell me how you like it. What are your favourite activities? What's really good that I have yet to unlock? Have you found it actually helps you get in shape, or is it not strenuous enough?

Love your comments!

P.S. I'm getting my podcast ready! I'll publish it later today.

You will absolutely love the Wii Fit. I love unlocking items and what makes it even more fun is when you have someone to compete against. I need to make time for myself and get back to it. :) Good luck!!

I love wiifit too! It won't get you in shae though...but it will help improve your balnce, core and strength (yoga). But that is the first step in improving your fitness so it is still great! Have fun with it!

Before I injured my knee, I had lots of fun with the Fit! My faves are the hula hoop (awesome for your abs!) and the running. Unfortunately I can't jog just yet, and now I have to start all over again with the super hula hoop - how on earth did I manage to get through 10 minutes of that torture?!

I, too, find that it isn't quite enough for me cardio-wise (unless I do free-run) or strength training wise. But it is fun when I need a gentler workout or just to get out of a rut. And my kids LOVE it, too.

I have a Wii Fit. My hubby bought it for me for Christmas. The plan is for me to use it when I just can't get out to the gym. When I use it and do the strength training and yoga, I do feel sore the next day from working muscles that haven't been worked in quite some time. My favorite...I think it's actually the soccer game thing on the balance games. My hubby bought me the Jillian Michael's fitness for the Wii (works with the balance board) for Mother's day, I'll let you know how that one works!
