Fitness Friday

It's Friday already. I've been quite buzy today & this week. Today I didn't have a chance to use the WiiFit. I've been running around. I should say walking around here & there and everywheres. So I guess I still had exercise.
I try to use the WiiFit at least 5 days a week for 1/2 hour or more. I still managed to do that this week. And tomorrow I plan on participating in The Olympics. Hopefully there will be an event I'm really good at. I am pretty good at hula hooping-always get 4 stars. Boxing - I finally got 3 stars & the free step-I can get 4 stars just on the regular one I only get 2 stars. I'm hoping to improve on these though. I don't think I'm doing too bad- it's only been 3 1/2 weeks.
I've been eating pretty healthy. If anything maybe I'm not eating enough. And that's pretty stupid because I love food. Who doesn't ?!? I find it better to eat little meals and eat fruit in between. Actually I read a "weight lifters'" book & she said that eating a piece of fruit 2 hours after breakfast & lunch helps speed up your metabolism. I've been doing that although I think I need to eat more still. The problem I have--is that I coach gymnastics 3 nights a week & find myself eating at 9-9:30 in the evening. So I started eating dinner at 3:30 before I leave for the gym then when I get home around 9 or so I don't eat. (I'm hungry then though) I'm hoping that this will help me lose more weight.
I'm not sure what my weight is today, but as of yesterday I'm down about 10 pounds or so. Last week, I was so happy that my BMI dropped to under 25 & I was no longer Overweight. Then on Sunday- I was again. My BMI went back up to 25.14 and Overweight. It's so frustrating. Then Happy to say Tuesday & again the last time I checked on Thursday I was down to 24.92 again & Average. I'm at the high end but I'm happy with that. I know that muscle weighs more than fat & you can tell I've toned up. I still want to continue toning & losing more; so hopefully next week I'll be down more. Until then- All of you keep up the good work & use the WiiFit--It's FUN!!!!

You are doing great...I am sure when I see you at Easter I will be very jealous! I tried really hard today and tried to beat your hoola hoop score but didnt quite make it...but I got my highest 3425! I am sure I will be talking to you a lot tomarrow during the olympics! I am sure you will look great for Florida!

You know, I've been debating about getting the Wii Fit, but I'm afraid it's going to be another one of those exercise thingies that ends up under your bed after a few weeks and stays there for years. Good for you on your progress, you inspire me to get off my duff already. I want to drop a few (OK, a lot) before I go to Hawaii next month.

Does the WiiFit have a sport called the Couch Potato? Cuz I think I'd get at least 4 stars on that one right out of the gate.

Thanks for coming over to my site when I was the featured blogger on SITS the other day!
