Wii (are not) FIT


When a friend told me she bought a Wii Fit on Kijiji, I was a bit jealous. I'd been wanting one for a while. So I hit Kijiji and actually found what I wanted, and very close by.
I happily set it up today after work. 
And, I am even happier to report that I did not need anyone under the age of 25 to figure it out for me.
Then the thing had the gall to weigh me.
THEN the thing had the even bigger gall to take my perfectly fine Mii avatar and plump her up a bit!
THEN THEN it assigned me a trainer! Some young bobble head pup with more muscles that should be allowed.
Miffed, I decided I would deem to allow it to show me its games and such.
And I loved it!
I liked hula hooping, throwing snowballs, and jogging with some stray dog.
I did not like those tone your arm exercises that young pup of a trainer did with ease. But I did some, and for the most part, my butt didn't touch the evil Wii scales, board thingimijig.
But I will try it again tomorrow. I set a schedule of weight loss, am aiming to match that muscle pup, even though we all know we shouldn't be comparing ourselves to photoshopped images, or imaginary Wii images.
So if you see some bobble head character bouncing through town one day, take note. It may be Mii.

Good post. Just wondering if your book title of "Hard Target" has anything to do with your workout. Might your goal be the hard target? Or, will your abs be the "hard target" some day? Can't wait for the sequel!

Vernon, my abs will never be the hard target. and my balance is like someone with Parkinson's Disease holding a laser. But I am determined to get that chubby little avatar done to size!
