New Year, New You

Share this:

The New Year has arrived! If you are like many, you have decided to take the plunge to get off of the couch and get moving. New Years can be a time of reflection and a time to rethink how you are living your life. We all know that exercise is very important in our daily lives. Moms and Dads get caught up in kid stuff and often forget about themselves. Did you know that Mommy Bear Media offers a nice selection of exercise and fitness solutions for you?

The first thing you need to do is find an exercise buddy for accountability. This buddy can be an online friend or even your spouse. There may be a day where you just say, “I am not working out today!” Well, when your accountability partner asks you, “How’d your work out go?” You don’t want to say, “I don’t know, because I chose to skip it.” A workout buddy does work and it will hold you accountable.

Make sure you have adequate space to work out. Depending on the size of your television screen, you will want a minimum of four feet from you and your television set. You need to have room to move about while exercising. And if you have kids that like to be within an inch of you, you will need to exercise while they are not present. Yes, this may mean you need to get up early in the morning. But, a healthy parent= a healthy family! Within a week, you will begin to feel better and begin to push yourself a little more.

Making the decision to exercise in the New Year, is truly a gift you can give yourself and your family. Exercise DVD's make fitness routines at home, much more doable than ever before. The key is to find an accountability partner and make exercise a part of your daily routine.

If you and your family own a wii U- Just Dance 4 is a fabulous way to exercise by yourself, or with your kids. Kids younger than two, should probably be out of the room while this activity is going on. It’s very easy to get caught up in the actions and bump into a little one. Make sure you have adequate space for everyone to move about; as Just Dance 4 is a very active video game for families and will get your whole family up and moving.

Family Friendly video games, movies, and classic tv shows can all be found at Mommy Bear Media. Free shipping, with no minimum orders! So, what’s keeping you from exercising in 2013? We’d love to hear about your work-out plans for 2013- leave us a comment or two below!

    This is great, I want to get a Wii especially for exercising in the winter! I hate being cold and I was a huge fan of DDR on Playstation!

    I couldn't agree more on the "exercise buddy for accountability" This was the key to my success. When she moved I gained about 15 lbs. Time to find another exercise buddy! This game looks like a blast though.

    I have always wondered about the Just Dance "games". They look fun, but I can't dance, not the way the kids do today anyway. 😉

    Oh how I love the advice of finding a partner to work out with. That really is key for me. Unfortunately, I have no one at the moment. I hope to start getting out more when my son starts daycare and maybe I can make some fitness buddies!

    My daughter suggested that we get this after I told her about your review and so we set about to borrowing one first before plunking down $40 or more dollars. Well, we both discovered that our livingroom is simply too small even with the coffee table moved out of the way, to accomodate the two of us laughing as we tried to keep along with the dance. I think at one point I ended up with a welt on my face when my daughter accidently smacked me in the face with her flying arm.
