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.....
