Wii Fit Family Fun

We got our WII FIT today. I am so excited. As I am sitting here Terry is doing it. I have to say it is pretty funny but I am sure it is going to be fun. It will definitely get me to exercise a bit.
There are all kinds of games and exercises we can do. Some of them are funny, like trying to hit a soccer ball with your head or walking a tight rope. And then there is Yoga and Strength Training. I'll have to take some pictures of us doing it.

Since we are talking about getting healthy and exercising, I have started a program called "From Couch to 5K". I am excited about it. I started yesterday. You download the program on your ipod (which I got for my birthday) and you listen to the guy's music but he tells you when to start the warm up and then when to run and to walk. You do that for 30 minutes three times a week for 9 weeks. And supposedly by the end of the nine weeks you are be able to run a 5k. I am excited about it. I really hope I will be able to stick to it. I want to be able to say that I have done a 5k. Wouldn't that be great:)

Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well and I will talk to you soon.

Love you,

I love the Couch to 5K idea. Now if only I knew diddly about an ipod and how to download to it, etc. Sigh.

5K? You want to run a 5K? I'm guessing you cover 5K every day with those wonderful kids. :)
