Oops! This was supposed to be posted early in the morning. Instead, it’s going out a wee bit late. Sorry, folks. Still getting used to WordPress.
I have to admit, I’ve been feeling pretty bored lately with all my usual workout options. Between kids being sick, me being sick, doctor appointments and car repairs, I haven’t been able to make it to the gym much in the past couple months, so I’ve been spending a lot of time on the Wii. I’ve done so much Wii Fit Plus and EA Sports Active that I feel like I’ve got those two games memorized, and I hate that. It just kills all the fun in my workouts.
When I’m bored with my workout choices, I tend to slack off on the exercise, which I really shouldn’t do right now. I’m on some medications that cause my weight to go up, so now more than usual I need to get up and get moving. To ensure I do that, I finally bought a couple of new Wii workout games. After all, that’s where I’m most likely going to be able to work out these days, thanks to a constantly disrupted schedule. So I bought My Fitness Coach and Gold’s Gym Cardio Workout.
I’ve only had the games for a couple days so far, so I can’t really give a good review on them yet, but I am very relieved to have something new in my repetoire of workout options. But these games aren’t the only new things I’m doing right now. I also decided to start going back to the Y at least once a week, twice if I can, and take water aerobics classes. That’s right, I’m going to join several very active senior citizens at least once a week in churning up the pool with a pair of foam dumbbells. I’ve already been to one class with my friend Patty, and had a great time. It was harder that I expected it to be, for which I am very grateful because I really do need something to get my heart rate up and help me burn calories. I’m looking forward to my next class, which unfortunately won’t be until Monday after this due to more upcoming doctor appointments this week. Bleh.
But at least I’ve managed to stave off the boredom for now. I’ll do a review of one of the new games I picked up next week, once I’ve had more time to spend with it, and let you know if I’m still feeling not bored by my new workout options then 😉
