I hate going to the gym. To be honest, I hate exercising! But it is something I have to do. I'm not the most coordinated so I do a lot of stumbling around in most of the classes. I'm much more comfortable at home but I don't have a home gym.

Anyway, I was flipping through the sales ads and saw an advertisement for the Wii Fit that will be released next week. I actually got excited about it and asked my husband to order me one for Mother's Day. It has aerobics, yoga, strength training and balance activities.

The only bad thing is that it is just like the console... in demand and hard to get. I'm hoping my husband pre-ordered it before they went out of stock.

I think we'll be getting one when they're easy to get hold of. Its about to be released here. I know I should be doing some strength training but I need some sort of external motivator to do it.

As far as aerobic work goes, the ads on telly look a bit lame to me, lol. I'd rather go out and kill myself running.

I am excited about Wii fit as well, I pre-ordered it and will be picking it up on the 19th. I had a feeling they were going to be a hot item so I ordered it as soon as it was available. I am looking forward to the yoga section as I can really use the help with my balance and form. I'll let you know how it works.

Hi all, my parents ordered it for me as a Mother's Day gift. I can't wait to get it. If you would like a preview, go to www.wiifit.com

Their website gets updated daily and the great thing is the more points you accumulated the more programs gets released.

Hi all,

had my wii fit for 2 weeks now and have to say is brilliant......You can do step aerobics, jogging, muscle training, yoga and loads more without leaving the house which is my problem when I get home from a long day at work.

It checks your weight and bmi each day and works out your fit age which was 15 years too high but its coming down nicely.

Only one problem, its quite addictive which I suppose can only be good..

I just heard about this, and ran a search but got no results, started to post if anyone had tried this and ran across this thread! This looks so interesting. i'm too self conscious to go to a gym. even too self conscious to run or ride a bike outside (have gone bike riding w/ my daughter after dark a couple of times though) and i really need a regular regimen.

we have this wii, that my game addicted hubby had to have, but now never plays, my boys have even asked to buy it. now maybe we'll get some use out of it.

i'm so glad i saw this thread! thanks for posting this great info!

I would still go to the gym, but it looks like a lot of freaking fun. It would be good for those days that the gym closes early or if it's raining or snowing and you don't want to go out of the house. OR night time when you can't sleep, plus it's a game. I want one I want one!

I saw the advertisement on tv. I don't have a Wii yet because they are so hard to get but I plan on purchasing it and the Wii Fit. I would use it on those bad weather days as I go outside and workout as often as weather permits. On the rainy day I use the on demand segment on my tv and just workout to the exercise channel they have there (it's free with my cable service). For those of you that have it let us know how it works once you give it a run.

Well, I won a Wii-Fit on ebay. I found one for $119. I think the original sales store price was $90, so I thought it was a good deal without the hassle of trying to get one in the store, plus I live in TN so put an extra 10% on that for sales tax. I'll let you know when I actually get it in my hot little hands! I bought one that the seller had "in Hand", not a pre-order.

Lucky you!!! Please do let us know how you like it!

DH mentioned the other day that he would like to buy a gaming system for himself. Of course, I caually said, "Yes, a Wii would be nice", with the idea of eventually buying this program twirling around in my head the entire time! :)

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
