Adventures in EA Sports Activeland – Day 1

Posted Jun 26 2009 4:40pm

To be accurate, I originally tried using the EA Sports Active with my new velcro work-around yesterday, but the leg band kept slipping down my thigh as I tried to do different movements.  It was so frustrating that I finally gave up.

So today, after warming up for 20 minutes using the Wii Fit, I decided to try again.  The same thing happened, I couldn’t keep the damn leg band up!  So, I decided to skip the leg band altogether and I slipped the nunchuk through my underwear and had it dangling on my upper thigh.  Not sure if you can get the visual on that – the nunchuk was through my underwear band and resting on my upper thigh in a similar place that it would be if it were in the leg strap. Only it was underneath my yoga pants.  Weird, I know.

But it worked!

The nunchuk stayed put (for the most part), and I was able to complete Day 1 of the 30-Day Challenge.  It only took about 15 minutes, which was surprising.  I thought it would be more like 30 minutes, but maybe they’re starting out slow.  Also, I did put it on the “easy” setting, because I want to pace myself.

I was sweating by the time I was finished, and I felt so proud of myself for figuring out a way to make it work, even though my thighs are larger than EA Sports Active (and I) think they should be.

When I entered it in to WW eTools, it said that 15 minutes of moderate intensity exercise was worth 1 Activity Point, which isn’t bad.  (I earned another AP doing the Wii Fit for 20 minutes (20 minutes, low intensity), so I’ve already earned 2 APs today.
