Day 12: Wiiiiii #NHBPM

Today I get to tell you about my favorite health related game. It would be really easy to say it's Pandemic 2 but I'll try to take it seriously.

I don't use it as often as I should, but I freaking love my Wii Fit.

FEEL THE BURN

Not only are there "normal" workouts like yoga or strengthening exercises like pictured above, but there are all sorts of games and tasks you can do like skateboarding or segwaying (I'm not kidding) or even extreme hula hooping. The things are usually pretty easy to do, even if you are having a tougher day. Clearly some of them - like free running - aren't maybe the best for us. But rhythmic kung fu totally makes up for that.

It's like I'm back in high school!

One of the things I like the most about it is that there is a focus more on how strengthening your body and working on your posture and balance helps to make you healthy. Sure, they do also focus on weight and BMI but that isn't the main focus. With a gigantic BMI I can totally appreciate that.

It was worth the extra money for the board and game to me - despite the fact that I barely use it. I also barely use our gym membership that costs us 60 bucks a month. Having the Wii Fit allows me the ability to not feel like I need to leave the house to try to workout - which is important since sometimes I want to workout but leaving the house or driving isn't necessarily the best or easiest thing for me to do.
