The Smockity Family's favorite Christmas gift this year is, hands down, the *Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board.
We are all
fighting over enjoying taking turns using it, and laughing at one another hula hooping and flying in chicken costumes and yoga posing and trying to get family members shaped like balls through little holes in platforms floating in space.
Because we're all very mature like that.
One thing I like about the Wii Fit is that you can program in your goals and it will tell you how you are doing!
I put in that I would like to lose 15 pounds in the next 3 months, and the Wii told me that I will need to lose 2.3 lbs every 2 weeks to reach that goal. Each day I get on, the Wii weighs me, calculates my BMI, tells me how many calories I have burned, and keeps track of how many minutes I have spent exercising. (You can keep up with my progress and share yours on my Facebook fan page.)
Another big plus for me is that the exercises are FUN! Of course if you don't have a crew of howling monkeys making fun of you while you're doing it, it might not be as much fun for you... or wait... maybe it would be totally cool to be able to exercise without anyone laughing at you!!!
Ah, well, I shall never know.
In any case, our whole family, big and small, young and old, are all loving this Christmas gift!
*I'll make three whole dollars and sixty cents if you order it from my link!
