Liking this game already!

So I told you all how I bought the Your Shape wii game with Jenny McCarthy. Well I finally got to try it out last night and it is soooo neat. It comes with a web cam that actually scans your body image and puts it into the game and you get to tell the game what areas of your body you want to work on and how you want to work on it (i.e. burn fat, strengthen muscle, or tone). It was actually pretty sad to the the blueprint of my body after the scan because it is very realistic and actually shows your troubled areas. I, of course, chose to burn fat on all parts of my body and to tone my butt! haha

Anyway...just the fitness evaluation that it makes you do to see how fit you currently are wore my ass out! I can only imagine what an actual workout will do. It's cool though because the game has a workout calendar and you can either go by what they suggest and work out according to the game (like 4 times a week with mixes of cardio and upper and lower body workouts) or you can customize it to workout whenever you want and how long you want. It even has options to set up your own Challenges or New Year's Resolutions. I will check it out some more tonight. I ran out of time last night but so far so neat!

I did go to the gym yesterday and walked a mile on the treadmill and then did a mile on the bike. My sketchers shapeups I got for Christmas HURT like hell. I can barely walk at 3.3mph on the treadmill and my right calf burns soooo bad and my feet go numb. I might switch back to regular shoes for the gym.

I ate pretty good yesterday:
B: Greek yogurt with honey and walnuts.
L: tuna with a little mayo and 3 small dill pickles, and 1 spicy V8 juice
Snack: string cheese, 2 slices of turkey breast, and 1/2 grapefruit (yuk...I despise the bitter taste of grapefruit but I know they are good for you so I tried it.)
D: 2 slices of baked ham, 1/2 pear, 1/2 c broccoli rice, and 1/4 c green beans
Snack: sliced apple with some caramel dip (not the best but at least I had a fruit instead of chocolate)

One day at a time...


  1. Sounds like you had a great day healthwise! Keep it up!

  2. Sounds like a cool game....I may have to check it out!

  3. I need to get my Wii set up again. I had to get one of the wireless thingy's for the TV since it isn't near the actual Wii. Even though I'm at the gym, I'd like something to do at home sometimes. Sounds like a good game. Glad you are keeping up the blogging.

  4. In reference to your comment on my blog, I live in Lake Charles, next time you come gamble you need to let me know, I'll meet you for a drink!!!
    And, I'm so ready for some crawfish too!


Thanks for the comment! Appreciate it!
