We picked up a copy of "EA Sports Active - More Workouts" and it's pretty good so far.

I have been getting a fair amount of mileage out of the first one -- it's got some good exercises, you can set up a routine and just go, and it only glitches out maddeningly sometimes. The trainer feedback is also considerably less annoying than on the Wii Fit, which is a big plus.

The new one is a sequel, not an expansion, meaning that you can't mix & match the old & new exercises. That part is going to be annoying. It does have some very nice boxing and step aerobics workouts. The water skiing feels an awful lot like the roller blading from the old one with different scenery. :P I'm going to try some of the stretches and ab stuff tonight. I still refuse to jog around the living room though. I have some dignity.

You can import your profile from the old game to the new one, but not much carries over. You have to customize your appearance again, choosing from what actually seems to be a SMALLER set of dorky outfits. None of your old trophies come with you. Since the new game doesn't include the old exercises, obviously any custom exercise routines you made up don't come with you either. It does show some more informative stats which is nice.

Will I sweat to it? You betcha. Will I grumble and curse at having to swap discs to do other exercises? Almost certainly. Will it have fewer random pauses when it decides I'm holding the Wiimote wrong? Let's hope so.

Went to the gym on Thursday and Saturday (cancelled my membership after my workout on Saturday for, basically, the reason that I should not belong to a gym in LA).

I've been playing on the Wii Fit pretty consistently for 4 days a week for the past few months. That's not necessarily what I'd call vigorous exercise though. It'll be interesting to see what I end up doing next.

Yay me!

Today I got some more stitching done AND an entire 12 minutes exercising on the Wii Fit. Huzzah for me.

this is probably really only interesting to me )

In other news, I wonder if this idiotic heat wave is still scheduled to break for the weekend...

32 minutes.

When you pass 30 minutes for the day, the little piggy bank does a happy dance. I don't want to find out what happens if you do 60 minutes. Hopefully it tells you to get a life!

Also, I am not a tree. (At least I didn't actually fall off.)

Also also, I got a bunch of the high scores back. And I made it across the tightrope!

We've scored a Wii Fit. Huzzah... I suck at most of the exercises slightly more than [livejournal.com profile] stuartc does. Who knew falling off a step was a competitive sport?

It also comes with the awesomest warning EVAR:

"Please note that while playing Wii Fit, others in the room may be able to see your age, weight, and BMI category on the TV screen."

25 minutes in the piggy bank, and I still have the high score on the ski jump.
