Eyetoy Kinetic, Floriade and Yoga

This morning I just did not feel like exercising. Yesterday I had a disaster diet day and I was feeling the aftermath today. Instead of going for a run I opted for breakfast and started reading blogs. Fortunately, even though I didn't feel like going out of the apartment, I remembered that I had Eyetoy Kinetic. I bought it some time ago but today is the first time I used it.

If you've never played any Eyetoy games, I highly recommend them. They are so much fun. Eyetoy Kinetic is an exercise program. It has a personal training component and an option where you can put together your own routine. I put in my data and it started me off at beginner, which was a relief. I did the first PT session, which took about 3/4 of an hour. It's meant to be a 12 week program with three sessions a week. It looks like it will be fun. I didn't get my heart rate up into the required zone but I was trying to work out the routine today. Also, it says you need the full vision eyetoy camera which I don't have as yet, so I'll have to go and buy one. I think that will make a difference too.

Then I was off to lunch at the National Museum, followed by an afternoon walking around Floriade. The flowers were gorgeous. It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

When I got home I tried out my Geri Halliwell yoga DVD. It was pretty good, and I finally realised how to do something I haven't been able to do before. The instructor has explained how to do it at class, but on the DVD one of the people shows you how to do the move. It makes all the difference. I'm glad I spent the money on the DVD.

It wasn't the exercise day I had planned (bike ride or run) but I was pleased that I made some effort after all.

Every bit of exercise counts in my book. I think it sounded like a nice change to the usual. I would love to buy a good yoga DVD. I bought one once and it was really crappy :(

My kids have Eyetoy and love it!
