    Hi all

    I thought i would do this post so that a few of us can log daily what we done on the wii fit or wii active or both, as i know that it will keep me going as i quit after 2 days.

    There is another post with active on it but i think its not just slimming world but not totally sure, so i thought the few of us that want to log our daily exercise and how well we doing (even if you want to add measurements) do so.

    Good luck all Wii fit/active mentalists haha

    This is a good idea, although I haven't been on mine since about last Oct!

    You're right - there is another Wii Active thread over on the Fitness board. Quite a lot of people posting on there doing 30 day challenges and stuff.

    I started my first 30 day challenge when I got the game...then did 2 days and stopped finding the time! LOL! Started again this week though, and going on again tonight. More determined this time!

    I'll join in. I Used mine to get my bronze award then gave up. It's sat glaring at me most of the time whilst I sit slobbing out "thinking" to myself I need to do some exercise to speed up my weight loss

    great idea, I too am guilty of doing it for 2 days then trying not to look at the board which is under the tv, if i keep my head up I can pretend its not there while I watch eastenders, corrie,ghostwhisperer,medium,biggest loser,and just about anything rather that get off my fat arse and do some exercise

    I've had my Wiifit for a month. It's got me from a couch potato to doing 4 hours a week :eek:. I find that Wiifit is ok but fairly limited. I do however do the free step while watching tv and I do some of the muscle exs and yoga. I found My Fitness Coach (£9.99 on amazon) more challenging, but got Sports Active 3 days ago, and my word it's in a different league! I'm pouring with sweat after 2 mins and I feel like I've been to the gym with a personal trainer! And that's after only 20 mins! I've done it for 2 days, and thank God I have a rest day today! My legs are SO stiff! But I'll be on it first thing tomorrow morning! It's the price of 1 months gym membership and saves the petrol!

    Reporting for duty!

    Day 3.

    The good news is it's only about 18 mins! Well that's the good news! You know how it gives a preview of the next workout? And it said about upper body work? Yippee I thought! Cos I'm really strong in the arm department, and the band isn't that strong! So warmup is gentle walk, then running, which seemed to go on forever! And yes you have the bicep curls and lateral raises, rows and shoulder presses, BUT! They have side to side jumps, and the in line skating,
    and of course the inevitable lunges! But only the sideways ones which don't hurt my knee.But the cute bit for cool down was dance moves! Not that I'm co-ordinated! Which reminds me there was tennis too! It seemed to pass in a flash! But I sweat buckets and exceeded my calorie estimate, and got my 1 hour trophy!
    Then I went onto the custom workout section and did a minutes hard bag boxing! Another 9 cals thankyou I thought my arms would drop off!
    I even did 30 mins free step on wiifit while watching the Tour de France this afternoon.

    Up early so I decided to strike while the iron was hot!

    Day4

    It announced that it was going to be harder than day 3 :eek:, but in all honesty, either I'm getting fitter, or the fact I did it first thing (which is when I like to exercise) I didn't notice THAT much difference. They are sneakily upping the reps on everything, and the lunge jumps are :eek:, there are squat jumps, and of course the inline skating. But the running seems to be coming on,the boxing was FUN! And I beat my calorie score. Dripping of course, but I'm surprising myself.I'd have thought at my age (58) all these lunges and jumping would have wrecked my knees (and my right hip is abit dodgy), but not a bit of it! I can see definition in my thigh muscles and things are begining to tone up in my butt! Now if I could only lose the stomach!

    Have you got an 'AV' button, or something that says EXT or a circle with an arrow coming out of it? It's usually on an external channel....

    I am ashamed to say that it didn't work....because I hadn't connected the Wii to the tv...

    LOL jes! That would be me!

    Come on chaps! We're down on page 4!
    Rest day yesterday, should have been monday but I did day 5 so I could have a rest day yesterday with having class. I don't work wednesdays so I'm going to get the shopping done then after lunch I shall have a good session.
    The fantastic news is! Tho I lost 1/2lb this week (I nearly said only!) I got my tape measure out and I've lost 1/2" off my bust and (wait for it!) 1" off my hips in the last fortnight!!!!!!!!!:eek: My waist however refuses to budge, so I'll have to do some abs.

    Thanks Jacqui!
    Just done day 6. Lots of upper body work and basketball for the first time! We have low ceilings so wacked the doofer against the ceiling!:D. I beat their projected calories by about 10 each time. But I shall get on the Wii and do some yoga and muscle work later I need to do longer than 18 mins a day if I'm going to get my gold!
