Weird Day, Wii Day

I feel weird today, not sure what it is really. I managed to eat right and work out. Today was a cardio day and I was on the treadmill for 20 minutes. I fought through the pain though. At around 13 minutes I was feeling like stopping but I kept going. I also felt but light headed but got it under control and finished strong. I then walked the last 5 minutes to cool. By the end of it I could barely stand so I immediately sat down before folding up the treadmill. I couldn’t even do my abs. I figured I would do them during my second session, but that’s another story.


What did I do for my second workout? I played Wii. The Nintendo Wii has a bunch of sports games and they are awesome. I had my cousins over and we played Wii boxing, Wii golf, Wii tennis and Wii bowling. By the end of it all I was so drenched in sweat that I figured I didn’t need to get on the treadmill again. Even my abs were hurting me at one point during the boxing matches. It was one of the best gaming experiences I ever had. I actually managed to workout while playing video games. It reminds me of the running mat Nintendo used to have years ago for their track and field sports game on the original console.

I feel weird because I didn’t have the “typical” type of workout for my second session but a sweat is a sweat and I am happy to have gotten in a second workout. I may even play some more boxing just to break a quick sweat again.

Off to play.

    My body hurts too sometimes when I play the Wii. Especially if I haven’t played it for a while and then play it for an hour straight with an intense game.

  2. Video games are great exercising. There’s a huge variety too: Wii Fit, dance mats, Eyetoy and many more video games that can be fun and good as exercising.
