wii is for mii

At least for the time being, I'm putting IF out of my head for a while...worrying about it, the money, no baby, etc, isn't going to help and I know that God is working on something for us, even though it KILLS me to not know what it is or when, or if it's in MY plan for this life...

So let's talk about happier topics on this blog, shall we? let's talk about me getting in shape! Or more specifically, me crippling myself for 3 days while attempting to get in shape... thanks to my new wii Fit system! The saddest part is that I only used it for 45 minutes on Saturday and by Sunday morning, I was walking down stairs like a 90 year old woman! It's now Wednesday and I am just finally starting to walk without a limp going down the stairs. My abs and thighs really got a work-out, thanks to the Hula-hoop game, the ski jump, the yoga exercises, and the balance activities! I have finally found a workout activity that I like because I can do it by myself (which is key, seeing as how I don't get home from work until 6 PM!), yet I don't feel alone, thanks to all of my wii mii buddies and my wii fit personal trainer. Another plus is that the system has everything set up like contests or games, which is a great motivator for me! And I don't get bored with it too easily, because the more you "play," the more games, exercises, and levels you can unlock! You can track your BMI and weight loss progress right on the game (using the balance board as your scale) and you can do a daily fitness test to see how you're doing towards meeting your goals.

I feel more toned and in shape already, which is really what my goal was anyway. I know I don't need to lose weight, but I do want to tone my butt/thighs and get my heart in shape...especially since the P.A. at the gyno's office was nagging me about exercising when I was there (hatefully staring at all the pregnant ladies) last week...did I also mention that she told me I should probably start thinking about adoption? No matter...she's dead now anyway since I shot daggers out of my eyes when she had the nerve to ask me that...oops, forget I said that...this is supposed to be a HAPPY post...right, right.

You're so funny! It's so good to hear from you. And I'm not going to let my hubby read this. He wants a WII so bad..maybe for father's day. Although around here you can't find them very easily. Have a great day friend!

I've been thinking about getting a Wii. I'm not a huge video game person but it looks like so much fun!

and my blog is supposed to be my happy blog, but I tend to slip sometimes and put the not so happy stuff there, so you're entitled to do the same thing once in a while. ((HUGS))

They say that things happen when you're not looking or trying, and I hope that's the case for you!

Hey girl,

I couldn't find your email so I wanted to let you know about the details for the camers.

It is a Canon S3 ISO.

I got it from Digg.com

Love it!
