Working on my Virtual Body...


We have a new addition to the family! Last night Mango showed up with the Wii Fit, I'm so excited. I've heard so many great things about it from people, mainly that it makes getting a workout loads of fun right in their own home. Mango and I saw it as an investment in our quest to get more svelte. So last night while I attempted a recipe of healthy chili for dinner, my husband hooked up the Wii Fit, he must have been having fun because all I could here was laughing coming from downstairs. While our chili was cooking, we took the time to fit in a 30 minute workout.
First off, you create your profile. This, while hilarious (especially to one's spouse), is quite a wake up call. The machine calculates your weight and BMI adjusting your Mii character accordingly, as a result, my character got a little chunkier once all was said and done...she even shook her head in dismay. After that, it's on to the workouts! As you do better and better, you can unlock new sessions to try. I completely dominated the hula hoop workout, that's right, these Latina hips did their thing. Today, I feel it in my abs, Whoo Hoo! I can't wait to try the Yoga workouts, maybe my character will get longer?
Looks like virtual workouts are my new thing!

I love the Wii but I want to get Dance Dance Revolution that looks like such a fun way to work out!

I want one! Way less expensive than my trainer! I could save some real bucks!

Hi there - I got here thru Linda at Lime in the Coconut. I've wondered if the Wii would work. You'll have to keep us posted. Oh, and I will have to try your chili, too. Loved that little cupcake picture. :)
