day six and seven of the wiiiiiiness
children of dune - leto 1
seperis
I skipped two days of Wii-ing and started again last night and again this evening. And was glad!

See, now I'm not, because three hours ago, I didn't hurt this much.

I blame the boxing thing.

Trufax: I never really had a personal understanding of the appeal of boxing. I just didn't.

Having said that, now I do. Sure, it's Wii-boxing where I am hitting air, but there are happy sound effects of hitting things and that's inspirational like whoa. This is probably why I didn't realize overdoing things hurts because it unlocked advanced yesterday and I was very excited. And my shoulders and arms and neck are asking me why I hate them. Though the turning-the-head neck pain has been a thing for a couple of weeks, because for some reason, I am falling asleep at really bad angles these days. No clue what's up with that.

Hurt. Ouch.

Wii Saturday: 1 hour, 8 minutes
Wii Sunday: 55 minutes
Lost: .7 lbs.

Status: ouch.

Doing this cancels out M&Ms, right? Right.

I got a Wii for Christmas, and the Wii Fit yesterday, and I really need to go back and read all your Wii Fit reports- I actually said to myself a week ago "when you get the Wii Fit, you'll have to go back and reread all of Jenn's reports." Sigh.

I used it for about an hour yesterday, and I'm definitely feeling it in my legs. I didn't do anything advanced, but I tried all the modes (I was surprised by how hard some of the strength balancing is- either it's very tough or I'm really, really out of shape.) I don't think this is going to replace going to the gym regularly, but I do think it will be a big difference at night, instead of sitting on the couch all evening- I'll spend a half hour or an hour doing this.

(I was surprised by how hard some of the strength balancing is- either it's very tough or I'm really, really out of shape.)

(Hi, you don't know me, but I'm going to blather anyway!)

I think it's a combination of both. The pushup side plank positively kills me, and that's because I am out of shape, but four stars on it is a strain for unclesiko, too, and he's not - weightlifting for years, martial arts three times a week, the whole thing. He set a score on that one that may never be beaten, save by him.

On the other hand...he can't do the advanced marble thing to save his life. *smug smile*

(Hi, you don't know me, but I'm going to blather anyway!)

Blather away! I love to talk about the Wii Fit!

I didn't even TRY to do the pushups yet- I just worked on the leg balancing (I did well on the one where you bring the arm and touch it to the outside of the knee) and I spend most of my time on the aerobics and the balance games. I think some of it is that there's so much to focus on with the balancing- the trainer, the red dot in the yellow area, and your balance itself- I started to do a little better when I just picked a spot above the tv and stared at it, rather than looking at everything.

I'm really excited about this, though. There's a combination of features (working out with the Miis from your Favorites, the time piggy bank, the scores) that I think go a long way towards encouraging me to work out more, rather than just sit on the couch.

It's easy to overdo at first. The first time I ever played Wii Tennis I threw out my shoulder. I knew it when I did it too..I heard an ominous pop and went "Oh shit..that's going to hurt later." And it did..to the point where I could hardly move my arm for a couple of days. >.<

I've also thrown my back out doing the Yoga Shoulder Stand.


Yeah I wouldn't recommend that pose anytime soon.

*sigh* I wish we had gotten a Wii.

But the little brother wasn't as amused by a game played by your butt as he should have been so we went with the xbox. *eyes it and it's life stealing ways*

, but there are happy sound effects of hitting things and that's inspirational like whoa

Heeeee =D

I haz a wii fit, yis. Tried an hour of stuff after pushing the table out of the way. No way can I do the Tree yoga pose, I'd kill myself falling over. But the other stuff is fun.
