Wii and Mii

I finally got around to doing some Wii Fit today. My poor little "Mii" turned a bit chubby when I was weighed and my BMI calculated, and after the balance test I was told "it looks like balance games aren't your forte." Ha! Ya think?

I hula-hooped and I stepped and I ran. My daughter had done it earlier and I only beat her score in the running. I have no idea how that happened, she must have been tired when she got to the running because I doubled her score! I found the running amusing, what with little puppies coming toward me and people passing me, butterflies in the air and a waterfall to run past. I was smiling while I was doing it. That's just weird. I don't like exertion. But I'm sure it's all part of my being easily distracted by shiny objects, or puppies, butterflies, and waterfalls as the case may be.

I didn't take a picture of my chubby little Mii, but I was relieved to see it didn't blimp out as much as I thought it would, considering I was declared obese. That alone is enough to discourage anybody.

When you start you have to set up your Mii, give it your age, height, and the things weighs you itself, I'm thinking it knows that's the only way to get an honest answer. Anyway, Dani went to set herself up and she put in her height and age and stepped onto the exercise board and it weighed her. It was a weight she was quite pleased with, even though she knew it wasn't right. She figured out that she had the board facing away from the Wii when it should be facing the Wii. Once she turned it around and stepped back on it said "it appears you are holding something that weighs 32 pounds." Lol! Um no, it was just weighing her for real. I was laughing so hard when she told me this when I got home from work, it was just too funny.

I did enjoy it but the key thing is doing it over and over.
Consistency. We will see. Took me 3 days for my butt muscles to stop hurting after playing tennis once! But I
know me. Baby steps. Just baby steps.

After that - toddler steps and . . .
