The Boot Camp Diaries, Day 37 - And the winners are . . .

yourshapeWay back on Day 5, I asked you to let us know how you get fit at home for a chance to win one of six copies of Your Shape featuring Jenny McCarthy for the Nintendo Wii. Congratulations to our winners: Cait, Luisa, bev, crystal porter, MeMee and Shelley! Cait says: "I'm an RN, and I work in a busy ER, so when I get home from work, I feel like just sitting on the couch. However, as of the beginning of this week, I am really starting to enjoy doing the Boot Camp workouts - my downward dog, quite pathetic on Monday, is looking much better today, just 5 days later!" Luisa says: "My favourite way to keep fit is to just crank up some of my favourite music and jump on the treadmill. Afterwards, I do some cardio, sit-ups, and stretches. The music keeps me going and makes me want to keep going. This would be pretty cool as well because I like being able to work out at home." bev says: "I am very structured (I tend to plan the fun out of anything) but one upside is that since I had children I work out at home 5 days a week. Monday, Wednesday and Fridays I do step and 5-8 minutes of weights (5 pound dumbbells) Tuesday and Thursday I either do Tae-Bo or Leslie Sansone or just marching on the spot while watching TV. I bought my girls a Wii for Christmas last year, it is great fun. I would love a real workout to go with it." crystal porter says: "I live in the country and have a wood stove so carrying the wood around is a good workout as well as chase after 2 growing boys. The Your Shape for the Wii looks interesting especially considering the technology behind it." MeMee says: "My 2 daughters, 7 and 10, and I have been practicing karate for a few years now and all 3 of us like to work out at home doing our Katas and kumite. It keeps our minds and bodies in shape." Shelley says: "I'm a total TV addict, so on days that I don't get my workout in early, and there's something on TV that I want to watch, I set "commercial break challenges" for myself. I try to see how many reps of an exercise I can do during a break, such as crunches, lunges, step-ups, etc. Or I see if I can do a wall sit for the entire break (sometimes I can!). And lately, I've discovered the "free run" on the Wii Fit. You can start it, and run on the spot in your living room (or around your living room, if you have space), then switch your TV to what you want to watch, while the game continues in the background. You get encouragement through the speaker in the Wii Remote. Very cool...and 10 minutes of solid cardio each time!"
