It's well known fact that I am NOT a fan of video games, or athletics of ANY kind!
Just thinking of any physical activity, and I am instantly bored.
As a child I didn't play video games, except a Game Boy which was short lived, and played only to "dual" in Tetris!!!!
It kills that now as an adult, when we go to someones house, and they suggest we play Wii. Depending on where we are, I will go for a nap, pour another drink and sit down, or make a slight scene to show that I am not a fan!
I also don't like spending money on electronics or things which everyone has. For years, I had to listen to Alan and Cory play hockey for a few hours, then watch hockey for a few hours, and then again play for a few hours!! I hated video games even more because of this.
I've gained...read this....20lbs since I moved out west here to AB. Where 20lbs on my body is, I am not sure! (I am not big by any means, however, my clothes don't fit as they once did, and I am not happy with my current weight). Let me also point out, that about a year after moving here, I was underweight. I would go to the gym, and lay on the benches and chat with a friend...until I was asked not to do this anymore. We would weigh ourselves and giggle that we weighed 108lbs!!
In the fall of 2008, I joined a bootcamp, and was in great shape!!! It came with MANY challenges, however, even though I am a person who gives up, and simply cannot be bothered, but, from my Week 1 fitness test to Week 6, the results were astounding! I DID IT!!!! I was at a great weight, and the giggly bits were gone!!!!
Time passes, and I'm now the biggest I have ever been!!!! Alan and I have a JOKE that I cannot get to 130, otherwise I am out. I called him a couple weeks ago to tell him I was packing, cause I only had a pound or so left!!! We joked, but I knew that I had to do something!
Back to the Wii. I liked the WiiFit commercials, and decided I wanted one, but especially after seeing Just Dance Wii game played on Ellen!
I have been playing everyday for the last 3 days, and today, I can barely walk. I got out of bed this morning, and my right leg especially seemed significantly shorter, bent, and was very painful. There are a couple things I don't like about WiiFit, it is very slow, always pushing buttons on the remote to go again or to switch activities or to stop all the words and talking!
AND.........this is what I hate the most....the instructions are so detailed. How to stand, how to hold the remote, attach the wrist strap etc, move people and furniture. But....the one thing it doesn't tell you is to WEAR RUNNING SHOES!!!! That's why I am in pain today. (It seems so obvious, but I was in my livingroom!!!) My weight wasn't evenly distrubuted. Also, I don't believe that it is accurate....of course it can't be 100%, I hate that it is in cm and kg. I also don't agree with the balance they say is best. Again though, I think that goes back to the accuracy!!!
But, all in all, I am very happy with it! It has only caused 1 minor domestic, and it is actually fun to do. I am good at The Ski Jumping, and Tennis, so tonight Alan and I will play together, with our his and hers remotes!!! Of course, this is only a motivator to help me work out, or to excersize at all. Clearly it works, today on the way home, I actually THOUGHT of going for a run!!!!
