Have you exercised today?

Recommended Posts

I've just discovered the Wii Fitness Coach!!! So cool! I didn't like the Wii Fit for weight loss because it's not consistantly challenging enough. But the Fitness Coach: my friend lost 35 lbs doing it, since January, for 30-45 minutes daily (and watching what she ate). So since I can't run anymore, I needed an alternative. Takes 30 minutes to set up your profile (including body measurements), and then do some tests of your fitness level. Then Maya, the coach, will formulate an exercise regimen for you. You can work out for 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes, and change the focus each time (core, upper body, lower body, cardio, flexibility). And you provide feedback about how easy or hard you find it, so that she can readjust the next time around. I'm having fun with it. I got it yesterday and have already done 2 work-outs. For now, it'll replace my morning runs, which will help my moral a lot :-) For it to work though, you need to be honest in answering the questions she asks and when doing your reps because it doesn't use the Wii balance board. I'll keep you posted. I definitely think I will prefer this to videos, since it keeps track of your progress and provides diversity (which in turn helps to prevent plateaus).

Did plyo yesterday and planning on a low impact cardio work out after work. We are playing in our kickball championship tonight so I have to be at the top of my game for that :) Woot! Woot!

Didn't work out yesterday because I realized that kickball was a double header in 110 degree heat and I needed to be in tip top condition...LOL. But WOO HOO - we won the championship!!!

Congrats on your championship win!!!!

I have the Wii Active -I think that is the same thing you are talking about Chanti, & I just started it too. Mine lets me incorporate the balance board though?! I love it, its a great workout, and is really fun too.

I did that on thurs night, but its been soooooo hot here I haven't been able to get back at it since. I have gone for a swim every day though, and plan on swimming and hitting the Wii before the day is out.

I have 7 lbs to lose and 6 weeks to do it in!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
