Fitness Friday









Today is my First Time participating in the Fitness Friday.....
I will start by sharing some info about myself. We just got a Wii for Christmas thanks to Gramma & Grandpa. I wanted to lose weight and get in shape for upcoming Florida trip. My sister-in law is getting married & we are going to Florida for her wedding & Disney trip. That means shorts & swim suits; not jeans & sweaters-so I decided I wanted to look Good. I tried this diet(suppose to lose 10 pounds in 3 days-eat gross food) & that didn't work. I've been playing Wii Sports-the boxing & tennis seem to give you a good work-out. Then my parents got the Wii Fit and I've been using that. Unfortunately I Haven't had the extra money to buy myself one-with saving for Florida trip. I'm hoping to win one at the next Twitter Party the Wii Fti Mommies are having. Anyways, I've started 3 weeks ago using the Wii Fit & I LOVE IT!!!! I started "Overweight according to my BMI and after almost 3 weeks I have dropped to Average. I can see that my work is paying off. I have lost 10 pounds & was the first to reach 5% progress In forum contest by The Cool Mom Guide To Fitness by the Wii Fit Mommies. Thank You for that prize I will be getting. The better reward is that I'm getting in shape & feeling better about myself. My family is trying too. I am going to keep using my parents Wii Fit & hopefully try to win one myself by participating in the next twitter party held. I hope to participate in the WFM Forum Olympics next Saturday. Hope everyone is training. I Hope to be there & Maybe win some great prizes.
Until next Friday--I will try to exercise even more. I already have increased my times & it's Fun...

WTG Shawn! You rock!
Looking forward to reading all your progress in the future and keep up the good work. I find that mixing Sports with Wii Fit is a nice way to keep things interesting. The first time I played Sports for a few hours with friends, I was sore for days lol

You are doing great! You will have to go out and get a new swimsuit for Florida!

Awesome! I've been doing it for a month and still haven't lost any weight. I'm sure you'll be ready for the bikini by the time you go to Florida!

I love my Wii Fit!! My husband has lost close to 40lbs with ours.

All it really took was looking at his Mii. There was no turning back from that.

Welcome to SiTS!! We're glad to have you. Em

Congrats on the drop in weight. We got a Wii Fit after buying my son a Wii for his birthday. I love it. The balance games are so much fun. My husband is stronger and faster than me, so he usually wins when we are jogging, playing basketball, or anything else. I can beat him on the Wii Fit balance games though. Makes me so proud:)

Come by my blog to enter my week of giveaways. There is a different Etsy artist offering up a prize each day.

Thanks for the tip on the Wii Fit Mommies. My husband gave me a Fit for my birthday last year but I haven't used it like I oughtta. Maybe I just need a little inspiration.
