The Wii Fit Plus ...

... beat me up.

After Nintendo announced that it was producing a new Wii Fit, I found myself very jealous. I had purchased the regular Wii Fit late January and couldn't believe a new one was coming out so soon after. Well, over the weekend I had a brilliant idea. I returned my first one and then bought the new one.

How? Well I had never opened the first one. Crazy huh? I know that sounds really terrible, but after my mom died my whole workout routine took a turn for the worst. I had no desire to do anything, so my poor Wii Fit sat in it's box on my dining room table.

After getting the new Wii Fit Plus, I was so excited to play it. Unfortunately I had to go and see Zombieland first. By the way, that movie is totally awesome and everyone should see it. Well I got home about 12:30 a.m. and decided now's the time to play Wii.

I sat it all up and began to play. It was so much fun, I couldn't believe how many calories I actually burned. But, apparently my downstairs neighbor didn't enjoy me running in place at 1:30 a.m. and he started banging on my ceiling. I totally felt like I was in an episode of Friends for a minute. I knew I would have to put my fun on hold after that one.

The next day I decided to play again. I spent quite a bit of time on the silly board. I did every strength exercise they offer, some aerobics and even a few other games. It was so much fun a time flew by.

But here we are on Tuesday and I can feel the pain of the workout. How sad is that? My arms are sore, my abs are sore and even my calves are sore. I forgot what it feels like when the muscles burn. It feels great!

So, I will keep up my Wii Fit challenge and plan on starting to hit the gym again. You'd be surprised how out of shape you get just from taking a few months off. I know I am pretty rusty.

Question:

If anyone has a Wii Fit have you found that it helps? Have you found any other games that are fun?

Good job!! Whenever I go visit my parents and brother I use their Wii fit and I SWEAT! And I run about 15 miles a week lol!

Your post made me think of these new Wii fit commercials that I've been seeing where it looks like Grey's/Desperate Housewives set... anyways they're fun :)

Btw, I'm really sorry to hear about your mom, I didn't know... It's totally understandable that working out would have gone out the window!

I think I am wanting one of these for Christmas (tell my husband!!) I have always wondered just how good of a workout you get from one, but you have convinced me!

When I first discovered Wii bowling, I woke up the next day with severe arm pain because I had played so many rounds. I was in so much pain that I had to to the elipitcal armless.

We have a Wii Fit and I enjoy it. I was making weird noises doing the yoga b/c I could not do it! It was ridiculous. I would love to check out the new game.
