I wanted to post my Wii routine. One of the other Fit Mommy Friday mom's were discussing this and she said would put her routine on her blog. I wrote down what I did on Wednesday this past week.You need to know first that I do not do these exercises in this order every day. But these are some of my favorite exercises on the Wii. I always start my exercises with Snowball Fight (advanced level), this warms me up and gets out my aggressions, throwing snowballs at my family, LOL. Next I do the Warrior pose in the yoga section and then the Torso Twists for Strength Training. These are the only exercises I can do so far in these sections but I am getting stronger and will add to the Yoga and Strength areas. Then I usually do Island Cycling, I like the Island View Course the best. Next I need something less strenuous so I do Perfect 10 an exercise where you use your hips to hit bumpers and add numbers together to the sum for that level, on the expert level you add things up to 20. Then I did Obstacle Course. I am doing the advanced level. Then I did Tilt City (advanced level), it is a balance game. Next was Advanced Step and then Rhythm Boxing in the aerobics section. These really get my heart pumping. Then I need something less strenuous again. I did Penguin Slide and then Ski Slalom (advanced), both balance exercises. Next I did Birds-eye Bulls-eye, this really works my arms, and then Segway Circuit (expert level), this kills my calves. I like the variety of the Wii exercises. There are other exercises I do some days... I like to switch it up... so some days I do: Hula Hoop or Super Hula Hoop, Basic Run (Island Lap), Tightrope Walk, or Rhythm Parade.
Here are some links to YouTube videos if you are interested in seeing some of my favorite games. The guy does a great job showing a split screen of the game and of himself on the Wii Fit Board.

I have gotten lazy about my diary again. Counting my points for breakfast and lunch is not so hard but there are 3 other people cooking dinner meals in my home and counting dinner is a struggle. I have to guess or add the complete recipe into my WW Light and Tasty program to calculate the points. I know it help me to do better and loose more weight when I hold myself accountable for every bite. I am making this my biggest goal for next week.
I have been struggling to find things I like to eat for lunch. It is my hardest meal of the day. Breakfast is a cinch since I love cereal and could eat it every day. I have a variety of cereals that I like. I sometimes have something else for breakfast, Rachel like to make muffins and other things, but normally it is a bowl of cereal. This morning we had baked oatmeal with peaches and blueberries in it... it was delicious and filling. I could not finish my portion. I save the Weight Watchers (WW) bagels for lunch to give me another option for that hard to fill time. I sometimes have WW bread or a WW English muffin with something on it for lunch. I try to also have some veggies and a fruit. Once in a while I have a salad, but I am not a big salad eater, if I am having a salad I want something special in it. I like chicken and one day a couple weeks ago I had sauteed onions and red peppers with chicken. It was delicious. I only used a little oil.
I did well with drinking my water. Making my 46 oz goal each day.
I gained weight this week. + 1.4 That is sad. But not keeping a close eye on my food diary I don't have an accurate accounting of what I ate so that probably added to the gain. Also, I have not weighed myself at the same time of day each time. Today I did some errands with my husband and did not exercise until after dinner. Your weight can vary up to 2 lbs at different times in a day. I am going to get on the Wii at the same time each day and weigh in. Then I can exercise whenever I can fit it in.
My goals for next week are the same a last week except I put my food diary in first place:
- Keep my food diary and track food and Weight Watchers points.
- Work out at least 4 days and I want at least 3 of them to be 45 minute workouts.
- Drink at least 46 oz. of water a day.
