Day 2: 186: Wiimpy workout

I'm still waiting for my workout DVD from Amazon, so for today's "shred," (and I'm using the term lightly) I did Wii fit.

My personal virtual Wii trainer told me that I hadn't used Wii fit in 204 days. And when I started to do it, I remembered why. It just seems so lame.

I have questions.

1. Does anyone actually care that much about balance? (I mean, don't you get the idea that the Wii worries about balance because it can measure balance better than anything else?)

2. Can a half hour workout where you don't break a sweat really be called a workout?

3. I keep getting bonked in the head with hula hoops. Should I feel like spaz?

On the other hand, I love the Wii for telling me that I weigh 186 when my bathroom scale had just said 191. ZOMG!!1!! I've already lost five pounds!!!!

So there's that.


  1. According to my Wii Fit, I lost 1.4 pounds between Monday and yesterday, but I had gained it all back by today.

    However, for the first time EVER it told me, in quite astonished tones, that I had PERFECT BALANCE this morning. My dot was right in the center, yo. And NO ONE can take away the glory of that moment.

  2. Color me impressed! (Visualize a yellow oval with a red dot right in the center.)

  3. haha.. your blog is awesome!

  4. I know nothing about wiifit - but the yogies throw the word "balance" around all the damn time. I believe it relates to the power of your core - which if you watch the right yoga dvd is nearly spiritual.
