Jumping on the Bandwagon | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans


It seems as if everyone else is doing it, so I thought I would too.

I bought a Wii Fit.  How original, huh?

I think Wii has the market cornered on us adults.  Their marketing people did a great job…uh, well….marketing to us adults.  Us adults who can’t seem to make it out the door to exercise, I mean those of us who want/need to stay close to home for “exercise”. 

Regardless, I got one a week ago and I finally had a few FREE moments (translation: no kids hanging off of me nor demanding my attention) to break out that bad boy and see what all the craze was about.

I like it. 

I can’t say that I am in love with it or any of that non-sense, but I do have to say that I had a good time playing around.  I only had 15 minutes to spare today, but those brief 15 minutes got me huffing and puffing and LAUGHING.  I can’t ever say that exercising has made me laugh, but yeah, I was laughing as my head got bonked in the head with a shoe during the “soccer” game. 

Silly me.

Oh wait.  My favorite part of Wii Fit.  When you first get on the thing, it tells you all kinds of FUN stuff- your weight, your BMI, how balanced (or not) you are and my favorite, your Wii Age.

In real life, I am 36 years old. 

My Wii age…..FIFTY FOUR.  Good God.  I need help.
