XBOX Kinect 365

Being a mom is busy.  We moms need to find time for ourselves.  One of the things that I wanted to change this year was becoming healthier.  I want to work slowly through the year changing my eating habits...NOT all at once, and also moving around more.

This past week we bought the XBOX Kinect.  I have never had so much fun with a system before!!  This was, by far, the best purchase we have made - that can include the whole family.

After a few days of playing it, I was sore!!  My legs hurt, my abs throbbed...my brain thought of this wonderful idea!!

I am going to try to work out every day of the year on the Kinect...I guess workout isn't really the word, more like "play" with the result being sore muscles!!  LOL!

I want to track my activity here every Sunday for the year, my beginning weight and where I end up after it all.  So, for the first little while I am only focussing on setting the habit of physical activity before I get caught up with the food.

So, since the beginning of the year here are my stats:

My starting weight (on a crappy scale, I need a better one) is 226lbs.

  • Jan 1 - 20 minutes
  • Jan 2 - 30 minutes
  • Jan 3 - 1 hour
  • Jan 4 - 0
  • Jan 5 - 45 minutes
  • Jan 6 - 30 minutes
  • Jan 7 - 10 minutes
  • Jan 8 - 0
My weight today is: 225lbs

I was able to get some play time in every day except the 2 days.  That is ok, I am not going to beat myself up over it.

So, this is week 1 out of 52.  It is something that I hope will help change my life and give me back some of that energy I need so badly!!

This pic is really small, but it is the best one I can find.
So, there you have it...all the gory details!!  I am committed to continuing this year and seeing what kind of results I will have on this weight loss journey:-)
