Fit Mommy Friday (week 2)

This is my 2nd week of posting for Fit Mommy Friday, and my 1st week with an update . . .
We received our Wii Fit Plus last Friday, just in time to get started on my first week of Fit Mommy Friday.  We got it set up, set each one of us up with an account, and got started.  Here are a few things that I've learned:
  • You can get a good workout with a video game (and have fun doing it)
  • When it asks to take the weight of your clothing into account, go with the "other" option and leave it set at zero  (we started out with heavy, switched to light, and are back to zero now - this has caused our weight and BMI to fluctuate this week and we don't have a clear reading)
  • A video game can be quite inspirational!  I enjoyed the positive comments each day this week (words of affirmation is my love language!)

In other Fit Mommy news, I've been conscious about drinking more water.  Ashley and I even purchased drinking jugs that hold the equivalent of 8 glasses of water.  I haven't yet had a day when I drank mine entirely (we just got them Tuesday afternoon, so there have only been 2 full days in there!), but that's because I drink a few cups of coffee during the day as well (which also serves to "flush me out").  In any event, we're trying!

Also, and you might think that this has nothing to do with fitness - I've been reading my Bible and praying each morning before I start my workout routine.  To me, this is a big part of being "fit" because I'm getting my mind and my heart in good shape to work on my body.  I'm definitely working on developing some good habits.

I don't have a great weight loss to account for (because of the whole issue with the Wii Fit and the clothing!) - hopefully next week!  But, I can tell you that my most recent Wii Fit age was 27!  So, my balance is improving!

I love it, Heidi! Great job! :) Hmm. I may have to get a water jug like that myself. It would really come in handy with my water goals, too.

Also, spiritual fitness is very much the center of any fitness program. We're His temples, His workmanship. It's important to keep ourselves fit for service on the outside as well as the inside. Thanks for the reminder! ;)

I'm looking forward to your weight loss report which doesn't sound too far away at all!

Have a beautiful week...

well done:) I like the idea of using the Wii. One of my kids has one (he bought it himself)--i may just check out the wii fit idea--it does sound like fun.

Heidi said...

Great job, Heidi! Where did you get the water jugs?

I'm so glad you are getting words of affirmation from your Wii program. The one I'm using keeps telling me, "I know you'll be more focused next time." LOL!

My Wii fit age changes from day to day as the challenges change. I agree that your spiritual health is essential to your overall fitness.

I struggle to drink enough water each day, too. I have a water bottle that holds about 2 1/2 glasses of water, but a larger bottle/jug may help me. Thanks for the tip.

Great job!

What a great idea to read your Bible before exercising! That way you have more time to think about what you read. Wonderful idea!
