Okay, so I decided to set my alarm for early in the morning and see if I could actually get up and exercise. If I can do this on a regular basis, it will be better than trying to fit it in during the evening where it will either take away from family time or be way late in the evening when I should be going to bed.
I did day 2 of the 30 day challenge on my new EA Active game. I did all 16 of the activities that the game suggested for a medium intensity workout. I’m definitely going to continue to do the exercises it chooses for me. I like this better than the picking and choosing on the Wii Fit where I’m never certain if I’m getting a good overall workout. This game tells me what part of the body it’s going to focus on so I’m assuming it’s going to cover everything I need in the course of the 30 days.
At the end of the workout, I’d again burned more calories than my target and I was dripping with sweat. I’ll need to get up just a tad earlier if I’m going to do this in the mornings but probably only for another week or two because by then I shouldn’t need the intro videos on HOW to do each exercise.
The only problem I’ve found with the game so far is that the cord from remote to nunchuk gets caught on my knee on some exercises and I’m afraid I’m going to break one or the other. I just have to kind of hold up the slack and it’s not so bad. We really need wireless nunchuks.
Oh and I can’t BELIEVE the darned thing doesn’t take your weight. It can make use of the balance board but you have to manually enter your weight. That just seems like an oversight.
This evening I think I’ll look at it some more for other exercises. Not sure what I’ll do tomorrow though. It’s an off day but does that mean I really shouldn’t do *any* exercises? I was looking forward to an off day but now I kinda actually want to work out some more…
