My Thighs Are Screaming!

Thursday, July 24, 2008

Another 30+ minutes today with the Wii Fit. I hate lunges! Yesterday, I decided to do Pilates instead of use the Fit, and I got scolded!

"I see you were too busy to work out yesterday."

Cheeky bastard.

My fit age dropped again, to 35. I'm pushing myself to see if I can get it below my real age on or before my birthday in a few weeks.

How about you? Are you focusing on lowering your age, weight or BMI?

Guess What Wii Got?

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Drama Dad is my hero! We've been combing the internet and relentlessly stalking Target, WalMart, Toys R Us and BestBuy hoping we'd get lucky. Shows how much we know.

Apparently, lines form before the stores open. This has been the gaming equivalent of The Holy Grail. Even if I was only sort of near one of these stores, I would run in just in case. I've burned enough gas to more than pay for the the thing itself!

But, this past Sunday, victory! Drama Dad set his alarm, threw on some clothes and rushed out the door around 9:00. The hunt was on. He had a route in mind, starting east and working his way west among the strip malls. He was just about to leave store #3 when he spotted it, low on a shelf not in the same area as the other Wii accessories.

Within an hour of my proud warriors return, I was doing this:

And I am sore. But in a good way. I'm loving the Yoga and Aerobics. The Balance excercises are hard but fun, and the Strength Training is intimidating but necessary.

The first time I did the soccer excercise (bend at the waist to "head" the balls coming at you) and my Mii got hit in the face with a cleat, I laughed so hard I spit. Drama Kid thinks this is hilarious.

And the Hula Hooping? Made me sweat a little. I will not tell you my Wii Fit age, but suffice it to say my competitive nature almost guarantees I'll be excercising enough to see that number go down!

The more you excercise, the more "credits" you earn in your bank. The credits unlock other excercises or yoga poses. I really like the way the excercises force you to focus on your center and posture. The closer you are to center balance, the more your score for that excercise goes up.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have an overwhelming desire to her my son's infectious laugh so I'm off to play excercise. (PS- Nintendo has no idea I posted this).

Update: I ended up doing more time because I unlocked more excercises. And I'm happy to report my Fit age dropped significantly to 36!
