Loving My Wii Fit (Again)

Wii Fits got me at 31. (Down from 41 a few weeks ago). Whew.

Two days in a row! Who'd believe it? And I got 30 minutes in today! My Wii Fit age really was 31 today, but that isn't my picture. My arms were a little sore today-not sure if it was from the kung fu or the wing flapping! My 7 year old was trying all the new games today, so she had me try skateboarding, and it turns out I'm pretty good--on the Wii anyway. I wouldn't dare try it in real life any more, at least not without a lot of bubble wrap and duct tape! Don't laugh, but I used to be a skateboarder, back in the days when they were "uncool", I had one and I was the first kid on the street with one. I was pretty good too-no fancy tricks, mind you, but I didn't fall on my ass either.

The game with the math bumping was pretty funny. Numbers are not my strong suit, so I'm trying to bump the right numbers and not bump the wrong ones, and I get a good chuckle out of it. And I practised my golf today too. I was wondering if I kept practicing here, if I went to the range, would what I learn here translate? See, I've got a picture in my mind of me golfing with Justin Timberlake and Chris Kirkpatrick--actually, forget Justin. I want to golf with Chris. He'd probably be a heck of a lot more laid back than JT and we could probably laugh at how badly I golf. So there's a training goal--I need to golf well enough to be able to golf with Chris. Ha ha. I didn't say it was a good goal, or even an attainable one, but it will serve to make me laugh while I try to hit a non-existent white ball with a non-existent club towards a non-existent green. I actually scored in the professional range today, which surprised the heck out of me. Perhaps I am a better golfer than I had been led to believe?

(Am I the only person who can bring celebrities into a discussion about the Wii Fit?)

And wow! is the cycling ever a good workout! I felt it when I was done! I'm sure my legs are going to be sore tomorrow. But it was fun and I'll give it another go tomorrow. Who needs to do all these fancy routines when you can just do the fun stuff and feel a difference?
