… and second, and third, and fourth…
You get the idea!
To be totally honest with all of you, one of the biggest barriers to my exercise routine is my love for good TV! It is hard to exercise when you can’t don’t want to move away from the screen. I live in a very small apartment (in a great location) so a treadmill or elliptical machine in here is not going to happen.
However, last night I discovered a new feature in my WiiFit. There is a program called “free step”, where I can set up the amount of time in advance and then change the channel. Instead of watching Mii, I can watch normal TV. The Wii remote acts as a metronome to help me keep in step. I stepped up and down, and up and down, and up and… well, down while watching Saving Grace. 20 minutes felt like no time at all when I wasn’t staring at the clock.
That in addition to some other aerobics, balance, and strength training exercises, and it made for a decent workout.
And in the end, I even have people cheering me on (see the girl to the left of the clock?)!
So how do you get and stay motivated to exercise?
