Fitness Friday – Week 8!

Week 8? Really? Wow time sure is flying by fast!! Notice the new button up above? WiiFit Mommies has expanded…to WiiMommies! After all, you can get an awesome workout from other games on the Wii, it’s certainly not just limited to the WiiFit! I don’t know about any of you, but when I’m doing the tennis, bowling, boxing or baseball on the WiiSports games that come with the Wii, I’m sure getting a good workout! Plus there are all sorts of fun games for the Wii that promote movement – gone are the days of vegging on the couch with a video game and just giving your thumbs a workout…now you can get up and move with the Wii! ๐Ÿ˜‰
This week was an interesting week what with the Princess Nagger’s lingering tooth issues (she’s doing great now, thanks for asking! *grin!*) but on top of that I’ve had the worst sinus headache all week long – so bad that it was messing with my equilibrium something fierce…nothing like walking around feeling literally like a dizzy blonde! But did that stop me from rockin’ my Wii and WiiFit? NO! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I figured maybe with feeling like my head was ‘floating’ I would have a unique experience…you know, like those little Wii characters were hallucinations… heh, heh! Of course I wasn’t all gung-ho with my workouts this week, but I did use it faithfully for 3 days this week, and while I didn’t lose any weight this week, I also did not gain any, either, so I’m feeling good about that! Especially considering with not feeling well this week I also ended up not eating right…you know, ‘cuz that Big Mac was calling my name and I hadn’t had one in so long, so it was a very special treat… ๐Ÿ™‚

Of course that means that I didn’t beat any of my previous high scores since I was taking it easy…but that’s OK, because I was motivated to move instead of veg, and that means I’ll be getting major pats-on-the-back from my WiiFit ‘trainer’ next week when my sinuses stop their uproar and I can put my whole heart into the workouts! ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you have a Wii and want to join in the fun, please do! You won’t be sorry…it’s great to have such a fun support group at the Wii Mommies Forum. There are some great parties and giveaways coming up that you won’t want to miss!

Until next week – have fun on your Wii Workouts and don’t forget to sign Mr. Linky with your weekly Wii Fitness Adventure Posts! ๐Ÿ™‚

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. No wii here ๐Ÿ™‚ but I’m going to the gym from tomorrow (I Promise) LOL I really should ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Hope you are feeling better soon…Those sinus headaches suck! That is awesome that you toughed it out anyways and played away! I splurge on something tasty at least once a week(trying to limit it to once a week)…otherwise if I dont then I know I will giveup the diet. So give in sometimes…get those things you like!

  3. Holy cow, you managed to work out with the Wii while feeling like that? You’re nuts! You might have an inner ear infection!

    Justine ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )

  4. Ugg…sinus headache…hope you’re feeling better!

    Sorry, Wenda, Hula and I are running away together!

  5. What do you think I would have to do to get Nintendo to send me a Wii and Wii Fit for free to review?

    Eh, wishful thinking…

    I want to join you guys SOOOOO bad!

  6. Now I feel like I need to get my butt off the sofa and get a Wii fit.

    Congrats on the good week and keep on plugging away! Good luck!

  7. Sounds like you are doing great, even though you’ve been sick. Good luck and keep up the good work!

  8. I’ve got a Wii but don’t don’t have the Wii Fit. Definitely got to get me one. It sounds like fun.

  9. Don’t you hate it when you can’t beat your previous high scores? I get so mad when I can’t beat my all time hula hooping high score….

    I think you had a pretty good reason to take it easy this week.

  10. You have such determination to workout with a sinus headache. My husband bought a Wii for our son’s b-day today. He talks about how it’s family oriented. Now that I hear about the fitness I think he has other motives. Hmmm! I did recently stop the gym membership.

    Thanks for stopping by to visit.

  11. @Firefly: LOL Firefly! Did you make it to the gym? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @Colleen: Awwww, thanks Colleen! That’s my philosophy, too – splurge on those cravings every once in a while, but don’t make a habit of it… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @Justine/Justiney/Tiney: Yes, I am nuts, aren’t I? (grin!!) I thought about that, too – it is possible I have an inner ear infection…I’m hoping it’ll just go away and leave me alone! (grin!!)

    @Yaya: Thanks so much, Alicia! ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL on you, Wenda and Hula running away together…you’re sure there isn’t room for one more? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy: Wouldn’t that be cool if you could con…er, um, I mean convince…Nintendo to send you one for a review? ๐Ÿ˜‰ It would be so COOL if you were able to join us!!

    @Candy’s daily Dandy: LOL! If you get one, you won’t be sorry, ‘cuz you won’t feel like you’re working out…you’d have so much fun ‘playing’… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @Jen: Thanks so much, Jen! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Jasmine (Fashiongrail): The WiiFit is really fun – and great for working out. What’s cool is you don’t have to have the WiiFit to join in if you want to – they’ve ‘expanded’ so now it’s Wii Mommies – after all, the Sport games that come with a Wii are a workout themselves, and Wii is coming out with some great games – it’s all about getting up and moving! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks so much for stopping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Casey: Oh, do I ever hate it when I can’t beat my previous score…and then when I try harder to beat it, I do worse! LOL!!! So then I have to stop and try again later… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks, Casey! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Bahiyah S.: Thanks, Bahiyah! LOL on thinking your hubby might have ulterior motives on getting your son a Wii…(grin!!) It is family oriented, though – and the Princess Nagger, who’s 6, keeps beating me in bowling! LOL!! We have fun – and it’s great to be able to play together instead of just watching one person play and get bored… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. You go girl! I owe you 1000 thank yous for being such a wonderful, constant supporter. You are truly dedicated to the cause and help inspire a positive attitude and personal well-being! Thank you!
