Fitness Friday - Back on Track

It's been a while since my last 'official' Fitness Friday post...like mid-March. You know how you start something and you have a great momentum going and then you hiccup and your momentum gets derailed? Yeah, well I hiccuped. A lot.

When I first started doing the WiiFit Challenge, I was on a roll - hitting that WiiFit just about every day with only a minor set back now and again. Then it was weekdays only, as I realized that with Hovering Hubby and Princess Nagger underfoot all the time on the weekends, my WiiFit and I were going to have to save our special moments to the weekdays when Hovering Hubby is at work and Princess Nagger is in school.

Then my 5-days-a-week momentum slowed down to 3 days a week as things kept coming up and interruptions abounded. And then I hiccuped. I didn't pull out the WiiFit for a solid week. That week turned into two, and the landslide began. My romance with the WiiFit came to a screeching halt.

The bad news is my neglect of the WiiFit cost me 5 pounds...the good news is having started back up late last week and realizing that 3 days a week is much better than no days a week, I was able to get rid of 2 of those pesky 5 pounds. So I'm back on track for the most part and determined not to hiccup again in the future - or at least not enough to gather dust on the WiiFit again.

I am really looking forward to when the EA Sports Active is released - I'm hoping I can sweet talk hubby into buying it for me (wish me luck) so I can have some added variance to make my workouts even more fun and do some extra good. From what I'm hearing, it's phenomenal - I need phenomenal right about now... :) I can get distracted by bright shiny objects, so if something is starting to be the 'same old same old' every time, I get bored with it and move on to something else.

I think that was part of my initial hiccup reaction - I wanted/needed more than the same old same old...apparently EA Sports had that figured out, hence the development of the game that I'm anxious to try out. May 19th can't get here fast enough if you ask me! :)

If you have a Wii and want to join in the fun, please do! You won't be sorry...it's great to have such a fun support group at the Wii Mommies Forum. There are some great parties and giveaways coming up that you won't want to miss!

Until next week - have fun on your Wii Workouts and don't forget to sign Mr. Linky with your weekly Wii Fitness Adventure Posts! :)

Good for you for getting back on track. You're right, three days a week *is* better than no days per week!

I am lurking on the no days per week plan and something needs to change!

I think the stress of family, winter and life stalled everyone out but with summer just around the corner, the Wii Mommies are kicking it into high gear! Excellent post as always, my dear! Wii missed you!

Hi, I don't think I've visited you before. I am glad that you are back on track. I think this fitness thing has to be a regular habit. I have heard so many that loose tons of weight and then they gain it back double time. Yikes! I don't want to do that. I want to loose my weight slowly and healthily. :) Have a great TGIF!

I am Harriet said...

Yeah...back on the wagon!

I'm thinking about getting one.

those little pounds can sneak up fast!

I too have a Wii Fit.. I will have to dust that sucker off, and get going. Since my company opened the gym.. I have been concentrating on that.. and my gym trainer told me to start tracking food at; Sparkpeople.com(its free) this is a lot of work!!!

Good luck, you can see the horizon!!!

Oh the guilt!!! I need to use my Wii Fit for more than decoration!!!

Jen said...

I too started my wii again this past week after a month. It's hard to get going again, and I'm more worn out than I think I should be, but at least I'm doing it! Congrats on getting back on and starting to loose those pounds again! Keep it up!

Jenn said...

Alright Girlfriend!!

You, me...and most of the people I know :) It has been a rough month or so...which is why we are all pushing each other SO HARD to get back into our routines!

I'm so glad to see you have recommitted...and I'm like you...I cannot WAIT for the EA Active to come out in a couple of weeks!!

Keep it up! I can't wait to see what you've accomplished next week!
