MY wish for you

I really love my Wii Fit.

I was definitely a little sceptical when I first learned of this little item. How could a video game help you lose weight? But, my interest was also piqued. Since we already had the Wii, I asked for the Wii Fit for Christmas last year.
It has really, really helped me get in the exercise. I don't have a gym membership. They're always a waste of money for me. Summertime in Las Vegas is HOT HOT HOT, and I barely make it outdoors to water the plants, let alone to get in exercise. This has been the thing to keep me going.
I love the strength training and yoga exercises. When I was doing them four or five days a week (earlier in the year), I could totally feel the difference it was making in my health. I felt better. It was much easier to climb the stairs at work. 
The other games on it are fun too, and certainly help to break things up, keep you from getting bored. The upshot is you're getting in a workout while having lots of fun.
So, that's my wish for all of you, if you don't already own it. 
The Wii Fit.


  1. Ooo, Mikki, I like this one. I actually have one. My kids use it...I should on days that I just am not motivated! I'll think of that next time! Thanks! I love my gift :-)

  2. We don't have one...but it definitely tempts me!

  3. Mikki, I bought a wii for my grandkiddos. They love we wii fit which I actually bought for myself but have NEVER used. True be told, I don't even know how to use the Wii but your post is inspiring me to become WII FIT!

  4. Honest to goodness, I lost all my baby weight with my third using the Wii fit and Dance Dance Revolution. I love it!

  5. I have one, but I have never used it, believe it or not. It's time to get with it!
