Fitness Friday - Using the Wii for Exercise

I have had a nintendo wii for several years now. We bought it when it first came out because it was fun to play at parties and with family.

Saturday Seth's parents are taking the two of us to the melting pot, and the Saturday night we are going out to eat and bowling with my family. It's going to be a great week.
