oh goodness, im not sure where to start.
im using the Wii Fit as my exercise since i live in Northern NY and the ground is covered in snow.
so here it is:
Balance, Yoga, Aerobic and Strength Training
(15 minutes each, 5 days a week)

does that sound alright to start with?

I met my December exercise goal of 1300 minutes for the month with less than 6 hours to spare! So, I'm going to increase it a bit for January.

January exercise goal: 1400 minutes

I am in. I alternate between Wii Active and Cathe DVDs. I had been a slug for quite some time. I'm going to ease back into my workouts.

Am committing to a minimum of 3 solid workouts a week.

Setting my Wii Active up for the 30 day Challenge. Also going through the DVDs to pick something to get me back in without killing me. Once I get too sore too fast it throws me off track for the rest of the workout week. I keep forgetting I'm not there yet!
