Between the Covers: Stories from My Bookcase

Wednesday, May 11, 2011


Have I ever mentioned owning a Wii? Well I don’t, the boyfriend does. What I love about it is it makes us move, given the right games. Smile

We’d battle each other with the Wii resort games – Tennis in particular. But my favorite so far, is Just Dance! I love that it gave me a much needed workout without getting me bored or making me want to give up like treadmills and ellipticals do. Smile

Sadly, I don’t play it enough.

But having games like it make me forget about wanting to buy RockBand 3 with the Fender guitar. Seriously. I love playing RockBand and Guitar Hero but I’ve so far stayed away from the added expense of buying a guitar for the Wii in the past three months. Thanks to move games I think I can hold out for a longer time.

There’s one game though that I might just go shell out money for – one that promises to get you on your feet, moving, and sweating – Zumba!


If I’m not mistaken, this is the same fitness craze that has also invaded a local gym. I was  never one to join group classes at the gym because I don’t know anyone there, but I really want the workout! Zumba lessons at home via the console may just be the answer. Smile
