After a long sabbatical we are back with the May Fitness Gaming Challenge 2024. Fitness gaming is one of my favourite ways to keep moving and stay healthy and this blog post is here to keep me accountable for the month. If I have a day off or can’t workout I’ll include it in the log below. This post will be updated daily as I enter my workout data.

I’ll be doing power walking, playing fitness games such as Nintendo Switch Sports and Ring Fit Adventure, working out on my indoor bike and my new favourite Radio Taiso. This is along with eating healthier and better habits and meditation / Yoga With Adriene.

Weight-loss results for this challenge

When I first started recording my fitness gaming workouts on here, my main goal was weight-loss. As the years passed, I lost a lot of weight and I’m more focused on feeling strong, toned, gain energy and improve my mental health. I could probably go down 3 kilos more (in line with my BMI, height, age) but as I said it’s not the main goal. Speaking of mental health I have deactivated Instagram and in the process of dealing with Twitter X.

May 1st start weight: 60kg

Day 1 – let’s go!

First day back at it and it’s badminton with Paco on Nintendo Switch Sports – I lost lol! I really want to unlock the black frame glasses from the Simple Set to complete my avatar’s look. This feature is something that makes me want to play again. We also need to improve that E+ score.

Day 2

While reading a book about Ikigai, I learned about Radio Taiso (a popular Japanese Warm-up Exercise). I knew I had to try it so I searched YouTube and was happy to see a Pokémon version of it featuring Pikachu and Lucario. I started my day with this and felt refreshed!

Day 3

After the feel good vibes of Radio Taiso yesterday I came back for more. Once the blood was pumping I hopped on my indoor bike to manage my work’s social media. It’s amazing how fast 15 minutes passes by when you are scrolling! Later on I did some power walking and then back to Nintendo Switch Sports for a round of golf. Even though I’ve had the game for some time, this was my first look at golf and I won! My tactic was to whack the ball hahah. It worked!

Day 4

I’m actually excited to do Radio Taiso when I wake up in the mornings. After that I played some Nintendo Switch Sports badminton and earned loads of goodies including the black frame glasses I wanted and completed the Simple Set. Later on enjoyed a power walk. I’m starting to feel tired when I go to bed now which is a novelty and something I haven’t felt in a while.

Day 5

I skipped my Radio Taiso this morning because I had a stomachache. After a little bit I went out for walkies and to get some air and mostly used it as a rest day. I still closed my apple watch rings and even had a few games of bowling on Nintendo Switch Sports later on. Considering charging up my old drifty joycons as E is playing on the Switch handheld mode and I don’t want to keep switching the wrist straps over.
