Wii Fit

Hey there! I really hate that I am a flake about this. Maybe I will pick c25k back up when it cools off? I don't know.

BUT! Since all of you read Crawford House, you know that we finally got the Wii Fit. We got it set up last night, and it was pretty interesting to see what it could do.

I went first. My balance was only very slightly back and to the left. I will be the first to admit that my posture stinks a lot of the time, but I do know what it should be. I grew up dancing, so there's some training in there somewhere!

The surprising news was that I weighed in (at night! just before starting my period!) at 151, which means I have lost 6-7 lbs since starting this blog last spring. That's good! It measured my BMI at 23.76, which put me on the high side of the normal range. Normal! I really thought I'd be overweight. Wii wants your BMI to be 22, which is 10 lbs for me.

My Wii Fit age was 34, only +1! Very encouraging.

Bryan set up his Mii, too, but I won't share his stats here. It was just nice to do together, and it will be fun to try to beat each others' high scores on the games.

Speaking of games, we gave the balance games a try. Harder than they look! Skiing was the most fun, but soccer was the funniest to watch. I'm looking forward to checking out the rest!

Great news! Can't wait to try it.
Jim read that 80% of gym memberships go unused after three months. Guilty here numerous times.
