Working Out

Activity Points is the only way for you to 'get' points. I once was one that loved playing sports and working out. As I have gotten older and my bones are slowly feeling the affects of my youth (broken arm, torn acl, foot surgery and just plain wear and tear on my bones:).  I also have a full time job and when I get home, going to the gym or working out for an hour isn't on the top of my list.

When I started WW I knew I needed to find something just to get some activity in my day.  I have found two things that work for me: 

1. Wii Fit Plus: my love bug got this for me about 2 years ago when we first started dating. I rarely used it but I did enjoy it. I stared creating work outs and doing different types of activties. Then I discovered the gem: "Free Step". You basically step on and off for 10, 20 or 30 minutes. You can watch TV while doing this and it makes the time go by very quickly.  I did this for the first 2 weeks and it was a very good work out.

2. Active 2:   we picked this up at Best Buy one weekend as we had heard so much about this. It is a total body tracking system that allows you to work out. It tracks your heart rate, arm and leg movements.  One of the main reasons I love this system is you can get a great work out in a short amount of time. I typically burn an average of 140-175 calories in about 20-25 minutes. I love it. When I get home from work, working out isn't on the top of my list. It actually wasn't even on my list until I started WW. This work out can be done on the: Wii, XboX or PS3. I highly recommend this. You can do light work outs, dance aerobics or customize a work out of your choice!

I usually grab a bannana before I work out. It helps kick start my enerfy levels and it is 0 PP.  On average I get about about 12-15 activity points a week. It really doesn't seem like I am even working out and I believe that it has added to me loosing inches. What activity do you add to your day?
