Having a FIT


It's official--I have an addictive personality. Once I get interested in something, I'm like a dog with a soup bone. Now that I have a blog of my very own (thanks, Lauren!), I spend way too much time on the computer. I love reading what other people are doing and seeing pictures. My other new love is our Wii Fit. I've had one for a couple of weeks now and am hopelessly addicted. Doing the Body Test is just about the first thing I do every morning.

I warm up with the Balance exercises and what I've feared for a while has been authenticated: I am unbalanced (physically, if not mentally). Clayton would be so ashamed at my soccer ball-head butting scores. And th
e slaloms are no better. I mow down more flags than anything. It's too bad you don't get points for that. Feeding the penguins and tilting the table are easier. I'm a little better at those.

Then I move on to Strength Training. I'm pretty good at most of those, if I do say so myself. Maybe it's because the trainer is there and my competitive nature comes out. Then it's on to Aerobics. I love the Hula Hoop and Step. And the Boxing. And the Basic Run. It's always fun when Cassidy passes me by with her big grin.

I finish up with Yoga, especially the Sun Salutation. That's always been my favorite thing in yoga.

If you don't already have a Wii or the Fit, get one. The technology is amazing and it is so much fun. Finding out my "age" is always interesting--Monday I was 24! Of course, today I was a little stiff from working out for 45 minutes yesterday, so my age was 44. (If nothing else, the Fit will keep you humble.) I guess you could say my life is feast or famine right now. I'm either working out way too hard and too much. Or I'm sitting on my duff writing about it.

P.S. Unfortunately, this is an UNPAID endorsement.

At least you are obsessing over helpful things. The Wii Fit helps you, and your blog helps me (have something to read, that is).

Now I think I want one of these.

You are acquiring some serious blogging skills. We took our Wii and the Wii Fit to the new house. I miss it.
