2011 Fitness Plan: Getting Started on Nutrisystem and the Wii

Hi everyone. Just wanted to drop a note to say “Happy New Year!” If you’re visiting this week, chances are you’re looking for a good fitness plan for 2011. If you’re like me, you stuffed yourself during Thanksgiving, and again on Christmas, and again on New Year’s Eve, and everywhere in between.

Now it’s a new year. So the question is, is 2011 the year you finally go from making promises to yourself to actually getting results?

When I started this site a few years ago, I put myself on the “Nutwiisystem” fitness plan. That was going on the Nutrisystem diet plan, and supplementing it with exercise on the Wii. It worked–I lost about 20 points. But I never quite got to my target weight, and in the years since I fell back into bad habits and regained most of that weight back.

And so last night I went online and signed up for the Men’s Basic Nutrisystem package again. That’s right–in a week or two I’ll be starting the diet program all over again.

I also decided which fitness program I’ll be using: EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp. Based on all my reviews and research, this is the program I concluded would be the most useful for myself.

Similarly, for women (who comprise the bulk of this site’s readership), the exact equivalent program would be to purchase the women’s Nutrisystem program, which focuses on a healthy diet for women, and EA Sports Active 2.

By the way, if you’ve recently purchased EA Sports Active 2 for the Wii and would be interested in joining Nutwiisystem’s online EA group, let me know by posting a comment below and I’ll forward you an invite! But hurry–for some reason EA Sports only allows 12 people per group, so space is limited!

Anyway, over the next few months I’ll post my progress as I did a few years ago, complete with thoughts on the food and the exercise. Of course, I’ll continue to post reviews of Wii exercise games as I get them too.

Here’s to a happy, healthy, and fit 2011!
