What a fabulous Wii-kend!!

As you have probably guessed from the title of my blog, this weekend my husband and I purchased a Wii! (Thank you to my redundancy payout!!). I made sure that Wii Fit was included in the package. It's a fantastic game, it really is! I can see I'm going to get a tonne of use out of it!

Daylight savings ending is pretty fabulous - I was wide awake enough this morning to go to the gym early... so I've been 5 times this week.

Food wise has been good too. I've been very conscious of my protein and complex carb intake and watching out for the sugar intake. I also bought myself a slow cooker yesterday so made this scrummy lamb stew with rosemary dumplings.. the slow cooker is absolutely fab for us bandits making yummy scrummy wholesome dishes that are packed full of protein and veg and are alot easier to eat... it also means that you can eat too much as well if it's too sloppy. Definitely glad with my purchase and going to try some new dishes this week... YAY

Tomorrow is my first day at my new job... very very excited. Just going to go and make hubby and I lunch for tomorrow. Thank you to all for my well wishes.. I'll let you know how the job is going during the week!

Exercise for this week:

Monday 6am pump and Wii Fit pm
Tuesday 6:15am Spin and Wii Fit pm
Wednesday 6am boxing and Wii Fit pm
Thursday 6am Pump and Wii Fit pm
Friday - Easter Show so will be walking around a bit I am sure and Wii Fit pm
Saturday Gym Session and Wii Fit
Sunday - Wii Fit

Have a great week everyone!!

Yay for the Wii Fit!

I haven't seen that end of the system, but have played some of the games.

Keep up the excellent work!

I love every ONE of my different sized slow cookers. ;)

I am really interested in how you find the Wii is one of those things that I kinda think I could succumb to buying.....when we both have work again.

Ahhh yes the wii fit. It's got a sarcastic little attidute so watch out! I go in waves where I use it every day for a week then it collects dust for the next month! Wait till you get to the advanced hula hoop, step and boxing. Great stuff.

Em :)

You know how I feel about my slow cooker and your stew - seriously delish!! We were seriously contemplating the Wii today - maybe after we finish paying for the wedding ...
