Now this is not my first time trying the Wii Active 30 Day Challenge. I got this "game" soon after it came out because I was hoping that it would be better than Wii Fit (which I feel is good for a game, but not a workout). I made it at least halfway through, and then life got in the way, and I didn't finish.
Now as I mentioned quite some time ago, I was hoping to get into a running workout. I used Get Running (From Couch to 5K). I thought this was a great App. I love the way it talked me through the interval training to build up my distance, and my stamina. This was a great app. But I realized as much as I tried to think otherwise, I'm really not all that into running. Oh well...
So I've been really sporadic about it. I was talking with JGD who said, "Why don't you try doing the Active workout again?" Now the only issue with this is finding the time. I like to workout before I shower for the day because I don't want to have to shower again (and come on, how many moms have times for 2 showers?) So this means, I actually have to get moving before Sprout in the mornings. Which is not really that big a deal. I'm normally up, but it's normally my "me" time where I check read my Blog Reader, and then read some on the Kindle on my iPhone. (Yes, I love my iPhone! And yes Kindle of the iPhone does mean that I am constantly changing the screen, but it's with me wherever I go.)
I'm thinking that if I try to keep track of my workouts on here, that I will feel accountable and push myself to do it. I got myself up this morning to eat and check my Google Reader (on the computer) and then do my first workout of the Wii Active 30 Day Challenege.
