Now Wii is becoming another HABIT!

Wii Wii Wii ALL THE WAY all DAY!

Just a couple of weeks ago we began using the Jenny McCarthy Wii game called My Shape.  Now, my wife decided that she needed the Wii fitness board and the new Wii Fit Plus game.

This cost us another $100 but I have to admit that I do like this.  The Yoga postures in Wii Fit Plus are a wonderful way to learn yoga without paying for a class.

My only concern is that this is becoming WAY too habit-forming!  Every day and sometimes more than once each day.  There is a lot of variety to work through.  I am thinking that eventually we will settle upon just a few of the routines that work best for us.  That should cut down on the time we spend experimenting and exploring.

It took us about two years to finally purchase a Wii, but I am happy to finally have one.  We kept waiting for the price to go down but that just isn't happening.

If you haven't purchased a Wii, but are considering it, I would recommend giving it a try at a friend's house before you make the investment.  We live out in the country and pretty far from a fitness center.  This is also cold weather country so having an exercise outlet in the house has been really nice.  Running outside when it is below Zero is not for me.

  1. Now, let me get this straight. Your wife doesn't mind you watching Jenny McCarthy get into all sorts of contorted positions... There is something very wrong about this picture. I'm not quite sure what it is, but there's something. Could it have something to do with how cold it gets up there this time of the year?

  2. We have a Wii and I love it. Wii Fit Plus has all sorts of fun exercises that hardly seem like work. I love that it counts calories now.

  3. I was quite surprised (and quite disappointed) to discover that the Jenny McCarthy who leads the exercise routines is a CARTOON AVATAR!
