So, as you may know, we got a Nintendo Wii at my house this summer. Sure, I wore myself out at first, and experienced a little of that Nintendo Magic, but overall, it’s been a load of fun. And we just amped the fun up a notch with the purchase of a Wii Fit.
I’m not going to lie to you: I’ve put on a few pounds in the past year. So, this purchase was especially exciting for me as I’m in the midst of trying to get back in shape. For the uninitiated, you begin by going through a body test that gauges your weight, BMI and balance. No surprises there, my weight and BMI, while normal, aren’t where I’d like them to be.
But it was the balance thing that really threw me off, well, balance. According to the Wii, I am one of the most unbalanced people in the world. And you know, it makes sense as I am also one of the clumsiest people in the world. As I attempted to play the assortment of balance games on the system, I was appalled at not only my lack of balance, but also my lack of body/eye coordination. It was sad, y’all!
But, I’m happy to report that thanks to repeated tries on the balance games, my balance and coordination are both significantly improving. And my abs are getting a little tighter from all the hula-hooping. Thanks, Wii Fit!
