That’s right everybody, it’s time now for entry number two in my already legendary fitness blog, “Getting Wii Fit.” You can read week one’s stunner here.
My body is crying sad tears of shame today, as I have used Wii Fit just once since my last update. Luckily, that workout occurred today, which means I can claim that I’m recovering from my bout with laziness and am on the way to having a ripped bod of unequaled quality.
Since last week, I’ve gone from a BMI of 23.36 to 23.15, a weight of 155.4 to 152.8 lbs., and a Wii Fit Age of 33 to 28! Maybe I should be lazy more often.
I actually enjoy Wii Fit quite a bit, not just as an exercise tool, but as a game. I think the menus are laid out smartly, and they really help to fuel satisfying workouts.
Activities are broken up between yoga, strength training, aerobics, and balance games, and the four categories are listed in that order in the menu. My usual routine consists of moving down that list, choosing two or three activities from each category in order as I go. Yoga provides a stretch and warm-up, which is nicely followed by strength training and aerobics (the exercise part of this exercise game), and it’s all concluded with some relaxing balance games as cool down.
Each category contains a number of different activities which slowly become unlocked as you play more. I like to select the activities I’ve performed fewer of (the game tracks the number of times you’ve performed each), and try to boost the numbers evenly. I feel like I’m trying to keep an RPG party evenly leveled.
As promised, I’ve got some revealing pics of myself in this post that will illustrate my horrible nerd hunch. For those, you’ll have to keep reading past the jump.
The shots on the left are me standing as straight as I can, the images on the right are me as I actually stand.
So there you have my main problems: a little scrawny in the arms, a little schlubby in the middle, and really crooked in the back. Let’s see what I can do about all of that.
