♥ My highest score for the 6-minute hula hoop game is 2007! Yay!
♥ This morning I beat my high score on the sideways leg lift strength exercise – new score is 79! Yeah, I know – not that impressive. lol But hey, at least it’s something! That’s a tough one for me.
Remember my last Fitness Friday post? Two Fridays ago? Well, I tried some of those yoga tips for the Wii Fit and they really work! The one that especially improved for me is the Half-Moon pose. I don’t feel so awkward and now I can feel the stretch all through my side and not just my hips. Try it!
Tip from me: If you have a baby sitting in a high chair looking totally cute while she eats her breakfast of cheerios and scrambled eggs, and you’re trying to stand straight for a yoga pose or strength exercise, don’t be tempted to watch her instead of the screen. It will mess you up. And your trainer will yell at you when you fall off the exercise board. (not really, lol)
One more tip: Have you ever tried peppermint oil while exercising? It really does give you a boost on mornings you’re having a hard time getting going! I occasionally put it on my neck and shoulders and sometimes right under my nose (you might want to dilute it a bit if you’re going to do that though) to energize me right before I exercise.
Okay, just one more… Listening to some upbeat music while you’re on the Wii Fit gives you a mood boost and extra energy, too! I’ve been listening to the Twilight soundtrack (which I won) and it really keeps me going, especially during the looooong six minutes of hula hooping. ;-)
