Goals- Fitness- Who’s with me?

Over the next few posts I’m going to be sharing some of my goals for the year with you. I hope to inspire you to make some for yourself. I’ll also try to offer some solutions to help with these goals. You might be able to benefit from it, so stay tuned.

This first particular goal is something that I’m carrying over from last year. At the end of September of last year I got really serious about my health. I almost completely eliminated sugar from my diet and have already lost 10lbs. I upped my exercise and am feeling pretty good. I haven’t reached my target weight/pant size yet so I’m pressing on and thought maybe you’d like to join me.

First you have to own a Wii, because this goal of mine involves a program that you “play”on the Wii. So if you don’t have a Wii console you are excused from the rest of this post. If you have a Wii and are even slightly interested please read on.

Ever since I quit the gym I started using the Wii Active Series as my source of exercise.

I started out with this one. Which I love!


But for Christmas I got this one.


The first one is based around a tropical location and the second one is based in a dessert oasis. What I love about them both is that the workout is never the same. It’s different each day so I don’t get bored. LOVE THAT!  They are both really good but you’re going to need the Active 2 if you want to participate in what I have in mind.

The Active 2 comes with a thumb drive that reads information off the computer through Wifi. I am able to start a private fitness group where we can track each others progress and keep each other encouraged. Every time you do a workout it charts your calorie burn, your heart rate etc. It even comes with a heart rate monitor. I’m really enjoying it. Check it out for yourself before you decide anything.

I’ll work out the technical details later but first I wanted to see if anyone is even interested in joining me. If you already have a Wii the price of the Active 2 is not much. It’s under $20.00.

So I’m throwing this out there. Who wants to join me?

If you want in, then use this week to purchase the Active 2 and we can get going first thing next week. I can then give you our Team Name and password for you to join.



  1. Kim,
    I'm absolutely interested! This is one of the goals I totally FAILED at last year!

    I have a Wii and a Wii Fit, but I will check out the program you're recommending and get back with you.

    Thanks for the push - it's what I needed!

  2. I'm so with you! My hubs and I are doing the South Beach Diet. Whohoo!

  3. Hmmmm.... Let me ponder on this one a bit. I already own the wii active 2, but it's not hooked to the internet. What would we have to be doing? More details, I think I need more details to decide. :)

  4. Oh this sounds good..
    Will pray about this.. how late can I join in..
    We have a wii and I love my different workouts with it but it would be fun and accountable knowing others are doing it with me..
    I'll let you know if I join in..
    Looking forward to following along

  5. Hmmm. I will think about this....Since I am going to the gym most days this could be something I do if I don't make it... I will let you know! K :)

    You know I always LOVE working out with YOU !!!

  6. What a fun idea. I love how you always find a way to encourage and motviate others! I've missed you!

  7. Good for you my friend!! Sounds like a great workout too! I won't be able to join in with you on this one - hubs and I are trying to make the most of our gym membership and not spending any extra $ on any fitness stuff right now. Maybe sometime later on though!

    Big you-are-rockin'-the-health-and-fitness-stuff-right-now size hugs to you!! Love ya!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
