Day 1 of my 30 day challenge.

Well, I did it. Hubby went out yesterday and finally purchased the EA Sports Active for Wii.

This morning I got up, and was ready for a great workout. Normally at least 5 days a week I’ve been doing either a 2 mile or 5K walk at home with my Walk At Home videos. Don’t get me wrong, I love them, I hope to continue to do them, but I need variation. I tend to get super bored with the same workouts and right now, I haven’t noticed any significant weight loss so it’s time for a change.

Day 1 of my 30 day challenge was a workout and a half. I ended up burning over 170 calories within my first day at the medium workout and I am feeling my muscles that have worked like they never have before, or at least not in a long time. I’m sore, and that’s GREAT! The workout gave me a great sweat and it was fun at the same time.

I did have a few issues with the controls and them recognizing but that was quickly resolved by tweaking the way I was holding the controls a few times. I can’t wait to get to day 2 and finishing the 30 day challenge. Hopefully I’ll see some sort of results here on in. I’ll be updating each day on my blog about my workout for the day and any progress I’ve noticed as well.

If you haven’t purchased EA Sports Active yet and are considering it, I say go for it! In my opinion it’s MUCH better than the Wii Fit (which you can include the balance board in your EA Sports Active workouts as well) and gives you that actual workout most of us were looking for when we initially purchased the Wii Fit.

Get off your butt and get to a healthier you, join me in my 30 day challenge!
