Wii Active and More Active

Several months ago, I got on a big kick of trying to lose my baby weight. I gained 75 pounds with Noah and 55 pounds with Jordan, which is something I was not used to. While I was able to lose a considerable amount with breastfeeding and cutting back on calories, I needed to add a workout routine to my "battle of the bulge". I had purchased the WiiFit and enjoyed it but I was looking for something more. My mom's best friend suggested I try her Wii Active so I did. I fell in love!!!! Unlike the WiiFit, the exercises continuously go rather than having to pick each individual exercise. You can pick you workout level and workout as much or as little as you need to. It also has a 30 day challenge to help you stay on track with working out. It is awesome!! The exercises, along with the resistance bands, got my heart pumping and my weight started slowly falling off.

Then we moved.....

Our move put a wrench in my workout schedule and I just couldn't find the motivation again. So for Christmas, my husband got me the Wii Active More Workouts. He figured since I loved the first one, maybe the 2nd one would get me going again. Well he was right. The 2nd Wii Active is so much better than the 1st!! They have added abdominal exercises and step aerobics which I love. They have added some more difficult exercises and made it more exciting with an island feel. Even the music is great. I have been doing the program for a little over 2 weeks and I have already lost almost 10 pounds!! There is a 6 week challenge that I love and it is helping me keep on track with working out. It also includes a nutrition book to help with your diet adventure.

Wii Active Includes:
1) EA SPORTS Active Disc: Featuring more than 25 exercises and sports-inspired drills.
2) Leg Strap: See your movements tracked on-screen with the specially-designed leg strap.
3) Resistance Band: Increase the intensity of bicep curls, shoulder presses and many other exercises.

Wii Active (More Workouts) Includes:
1) EA SPORTS More Active Disc: Featuring more than 35 all-new exercises and sports-inspired drills.
2) Special Edition Bob Greene Nutrition Best Life Book: features tips on creating a balanced lifestyle, recipes from the Best Life Diet Cookbook, and a daily journal.

So if you are like me and do not like going to the gym and would prefer to workout in your own home, why not put your Wii to work? Look into will love it!! Check it out at

Happy Exercising!!
