My New Exercise Plan

So I turned 30 on Febuary 16th and I told my husband I wanted only 2 things for my birthday. I wanted a new Coach purse (which to me is sometimes better than diamonds), and I wanted the Wii game system so that I could work out at home.

Well besides surprising me with a birthday party I got both my wishes. My coach purse is in the mail as we speak and my husband came home from work yesterday with a big box that contained my Wii. Needless to say I was estatic.

So today being my day off work I have been scouring the internet trying to find the best workout video for my money. I have found 3 that I would like but I am needing some advice on which one to get. The three that I am stuck between are the Wii Fit, Your Shape with Jenny McCarthy, and Wii Active.

With the Wii Fit I am nervous about the balance board. Yeah going back to my fat complex I imagine myself stepping up on it and it crushing like dust underneath my feet.  I am also nervous that it would be too hard for me since I am just beginning working out.

With the Your Shape, I like the fact that it has the camera to track your actions to make sure you  are doing the exercises right. But then again I hope it does not have me turning my body into a pretzel to "feel the burn".

And last but not least the Wii Active. I have not heard a lot about this one. Just that it has many exercises and tracks your progress.

So basically what I am trying to find is a workout game that will track my progress, be easy enough that me as a beginner will have no problem keeping up with it, be fun, and of course to kick my flabby butt.

I am open to suggestions and comments. If you have had these games or have ever worked out to them, please comment to me which one and how it worked out for you. Thanks so much for all your help!

I used to get a LOT of exercise playing DDR... The only thing it tracks is calories burned, but it's always a lot. And I can't figure out how the one for the wii works, but it is the only one I've really had fun playing. I'm just sayin'.
