This is a photo of the hubby upon awakening to find all of his muscles sore! Kidding! It's the Wii fit... Remote control charger- so wacky!
Both the hubby and I are good 'n sore from yesterday's workout. He's sore in his glutes, calves, traps and ankles (?). I'm sore in my glutes, quads, obliques, calves, triceps and delts! I forgot to mention the BURN factor... 500 calories! Yes I spent 90 minutes playing with this new toy (it counted up my actual exercise as 105 minutes with the remainder of time spent watching demos and being congratulated or berated on my performance). Nonetheless, the calorie burn was equal to any challenging class I'd take at the gym, considering that I spent a good amount of time doing yoga poses, which are not high calorie-burners.
Today I might try the skiing or some of the advanced exercises that I "earned" the opportunity to do. That's another one of the motivational factors- if you persevere, it allows you to try new and different exercises and activities- keeping boredom at bay.
Addendum: We can add Adductors (inner thighs) and rear delts to the "Wii Are Sore Club" of muscles from yesterday's workout. Sometimes it takes a day or even TWO after a kickass workout for the muscles to start screaming...DOMS or delayed-onset muscle soreness...gotta love it.
Also, I tried the Boxing segment today- really fun and gratifying- you really hear the "pow" against the bag- great for aggression-release!
Maintaining a 90+ pound weight loss after a lifetime of weight cycling, I'm blogging to share my journey to find balance with food and exercise in this thin-crazed world. And to make you look at photos of my cats. I hope you'll pick up a tip or two; or just have a laugh. You can email me at LASmoothieGirl at gmail dot com. Thank you for reading!
