Owie, Owie, Owie!!!
That is what you can expect to hear if I attempt to bend over and pick something up off the floor. Did I mention I got a Wii Fit recently? I've been using it about 4 days now. Four days IN A ROW! I know, impressive. Here are some things I learned in my new "fitter" 4 days. If you have Wii Fit and have tried the strength training exercises, then you probably know about "Lunge". For those of you who don't have Wii Fit, "Lunge" is exercise jargon for "All About EVIL". My legs, oh my poor, flabby, celulite riddled legs! In their defense, they didn't even see it coming. I caught them unaware. The inevitable shock was followed with the inevitable pain. Even though I appologized to said legs, profusely, they won't stop whining. So I medicated them....ala Ibuprophen :) We are moderately comfortable now.....Unless I bend, kneel or straighten to quickly. But I have taken a stand, albeit a painful one, that they will not win, (they being my wimpy muscles), I will whip them into shape. I will one day step on my wii fit board and not be called obese again. If. It. Kills. Me. (and it probably will lol). Anyone out there starting a diet or exercise program that they are learning to love? I am all ears. I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.
