So, I think I do my worst eating during the weekend because I know I will have the whole week to fix it. I celebrated my Friday weight loss with copious amounts of sushi (not necessarily bad) and went to a birthday party where there were ice cream and snacks (yeah bad).
On Monday, I was pleased to discover that EA Active was on sale at Target. Not only have I heard that this is all around a better workout than Wii Fit, now I had no reason not to get it. I also bought some weighted gloves and some Slim Fast (to satisfy any chocolate cravings I have and to give myself a breakfast I always seem to miss).
I tried out the game for the first time tonight and it is awesome. I only had about an hour set aside to work out and I decided to customize my workout with only sports-related activities. I looked at basketball and boxing. Basketball was fun; I did all the activities (passing, shooting) related to it for 10-15 minutes.) With the weighted gloves, boxing gave me much more of a workout than I expected. I'm certain I burned more calories than it told me and I worked out for another 20 minutes. I was wiped OUT by the end of it. And, of course, I felt great. I was getting a decent workout at home!
Nintendo: You are fantastic. Kudos to you for getting people off their asses. I'm looking forward to many more workouts in the coming days, weeks and months and I'm hoping I can burn enough calories to ensure a bit more weight loss this week.
