Sarcastic Personal Trainers.

Today is the first day to try to start to regain some semblance of a maybe schedule for taking care of my diet and exercise.. I'm so committed.

The thing is that I use the Wii Fit Plus. It has a little cartoon character personal trainer, (that I do not pay for by the session!) that switches up my workouts for me, you know step aerobics..

See here I am (That's DH's Mii profile to my right, Sam's to the left.. it's random, the person to the far left has a shark's head..)

I'm the step aerobics MASTER in this house.. Although Ben is a real serious second.. he's very good at it, and he just kills me in the Rhythm Parade.

Then as a "waist" exercise I get to Hula Hoop... and it really burns by the time they let you off the hook. Really, you're standing on the little balance board, you gotta keep moving!

(Ben pointed out that his Mii is to the right here)

But look! I did just fine! (Sam always hits this one out of the park!)

I get a lot of "encouragement" in the form of ..

"All right! Mom got hit on the head with the Hula Hoop!"

Of course the real teeth gritting issue with the Wii is that when you get on the balance board, and you haven't got a perfect frame it will reflect it in your Mii character.

I ask you, is that even right? In any stretch of the imagination? And if I am looking at my calender for any length of time, my Mii character tries to look at her own butt.

Like, "Does this video game make my butt look big?"

Just don't answer that.....

I don't know... I'm not so sure I'd want crazy little animated people telling me what to do...! I like to have interaction with the people I'm chewing out! ;-) Good for you for exercising though. I've been working out at a friends house. She has a total gym thingie in her basement and we also do aerobics and yoga with DVD's. And she also has an Infrared Sauna and a Jacuzzi is out on the deck, which we use after our workout! Last week, we were in the jacuzzi and it began to snow. It was fabulous!
