Get Fit Quick: My Wii Fit Plus Routine

"Wii Fit Plus Routine"

Yesterday I went to my doctor to get my annual physical and learned that I gained a whopping 13 lbs over the last year. Last September I was 141 lbs and I am now 154 lbs. I didn’t even realize that my weight gain was that extreme. That was the last straw so last night I decided to knock the dust off of my Wii Fit Plus and start a new routine to get back into shape. Upon completing my body test I learned that almost 10 of those lbs I’ve gained in the past 6 months. The system quickly gave my Mii a pooch and deemed me overweight according to my Body Mass Index (BMI).

Now I usually maintain around 145 lbs but the max weight that I am comfortable at is 150 lbs.  So I set my first goal to lose 4.1 lbs in one month. This will put me back at 150 lbs and put my BMI back into the normal range. Once I reach that goal, I then plan to lose another 5 lbs and be 145 lbs by the end of the year. This way I don’t have to feel like I am on eggshells about my weight. Although I would like to lose a few pounds, I would really like to tone up as well. Specifically my core and my thighs. I did a few searches online to see what kind of ab routines people were doing on their Wii and decided on this  30 Minute Wii Fit Abs Workout with slight modifications. Here is the routine:

1.Yoga (12 minutes)

Half Moon

Bridge

Chair

Shoulder Stand

Tree

Triangle

2. Strength (8 mins)

Jackknife

Torso Twists

Single-Arm Stand

Plank

Single-Leg Twist

3. Aerobics (10 mins)

Super Hula Hoop

I did the routine for the first time last night and it is awesome. I could really feel my muscles stretching and contracting and I worked up a pretty good sweat. I am going to try my best to do my routine everyday either before I go to bed at night or in the morning before I get started with the day. I’ve already been watching what I eat, not really a diet per say but choosing healthier options and eating smaller portions. I’ve also been attempting to drink more water which I am bad at. With the modifications to my diet and my new workout routine I feel that I am on the right track to getting fit. I will keep you guys updated.

My cute yoga mat that I got from mark (Avon) a few years ago that has been sitting in a corner collecting dust. Not anymore!
