Wii Fit Wednesday

We got ourselves an early Christmas present yesterday and bought a Wii and Wii Fit! I'm so excited! Here's the thing, now that I have it, I don't have any more excuses for not being able to work out. This workout machine is conveniently located and add's up my daily workout time so that I can sneak in minutes whenever Michaela is napping or quietly playing. It even sets up fitness goals for me to try to attain. I've decided to post my goals and progress here (inspired by some awesome fellow bloggers here and here) so that I hold myself a little bit more accountable; I don't want to be embarrased by not making any progress!

I'm technically not dieting, because that isn't very healthy for a nursing mom. I am trying to get healthier by excercising daily, making healthier eating choices, drinking more water and eating smaller sized portions. Because my current diet is so horrible, I will probably lose some weight to boot, which is fine by me.

Current stats:
BMI -32.94
Weight - 167.8 lbs

My current goal is to ecxercise on the Wii from 30-60 minutes every day. Hopefully I will also lose 3 lbs in the process in the following 2 weeks.
Wish me luck!

I wish you luck on your quest of losing three pounds, but I can tell you my Wii Fit lies to me! LIES, I say! I love how when you are in the obese category, your shirt doesn't touch your pants! Nice, that boosts my confidence.
