Yesterday’s workout was so fun! I love swimming; it makes me feel strong.
Fitting in a workout today was a little tougher. I am still struggling to get back to my morning workout routine. I could not get myself out of bed. So rather than fight the monument lighting traffic to get to the gym before my friend’s party tonight, I decided to work out with my wii.
I have both the Wii Fit and the EA Sports Active. I went for the Sports Active because I wasn’t quite ready for the Wii Fit attitude (like the “uh oh”, for those of you who have the Wii Fit, you know what I am talking about). I never really got into the challenges with the regular Sports Active, so I broke open the More Sports.
The more sports was fun. But, it requires some open space in your living room – which in the city of Baltimore is easier said than done – and all this stuff (it comes with the regular game, but took some finding):
I like the More better because it starts and ends with stretching, although it was a little repetitive. The workouts are fun and include tons of resistance training, an obstacle course and boxing. It’s set on an island somewhere so all the graphics include water. I did a lot of jumping rope – although, I think they could have had a dolphin or two jumping in the background to distract me from the counter.
I mean, really, look at all that water!!!
I feel good because I was beginning to sweat after about 6 minutes and burned some calories. I also had to do some ABS, which I hate, but is very good for me. And, at least I got some sort of work out in. I am beginning to forget the excuses and my body thanks me.
