Walk the walk

Tuesday, July 8, 2008

Well, I will admit to all of you that I have been doing a great job of walking every day for at least 30 minutes (usually 60).

However, I have seriously slacked off on the Wii Fit and Push-Up front. I think the reason that I am doing well with walking is that my best buddy (since we were in diapers) now lives down the street from me and we motivate each other to walk.

One downfall of the Wii Fit is that it is kind of a solitary activity. Although others can do the exercises WITH you - it only records 'points' for the person using the Balance Board. It would be good in the next iteration, if they include a way to exercise TOGETHER. BUT - that is only an excuse. I need to get back in the groove. I love using it - I just have to motivate myself to get STARTED.

As for the push-ups - every day I say "We need to do our push-ups" and Hunkahubby growls at me and then I give in and forget about it. ::sighs::

SO . . . this week - my goal is to do the Wii Fit at least 3 times - and to FINALLY FINISH WEEK ONE of the Hundred Push Up Challenge. (And also to keep walking and tracking my food, which I've been doing pretty well at.)

What are you doing to walk the walk and get motivated?

Hi Izzy,

Great job on walking every day, that's my main form of cardio, paced walking in my target heart rate zone. Don't you just feel wonderful after you've completed your 30 minutes?! :)

Keep up the great work, enjoy!
