We think perhaps we should enter him in a mini-Brian Wilson look-alike contest. What do you think?
He's a little cuddler, especially at 4:00 AM. That's right, almost 8 months old, and still not sleeping through the night. Thoughts, ideas, tips?
Amy, my MumsTheWurd! partner & friend, and I are Wii-ing it up together. Today will mark my 5th day using the Wii Fit. I don't know if I can explain in a blog post how much I despise exercising. Perhaps this is why the Wii Fit called me a weakling and a couch potato...but anyway...
The Wii Fit is FUN! It's exercise, but you can do things like Hula Hooping, Yoga, Strength Training with a trainer, etc. It's something I can see myself doing every day for 30 minutes, at least. Elliott & I are both love the sports disc too, which includes things like tennis, boxing, and bowling.
The most interesting thing about the Wii Fit, is that it does a body test when you first plug it in, and tells you what you weigh, your BMI, sets goals, etc. I was amazed! I fell into a category I was ok with, but I know it could be better. I'm pretty excited to see what happens over the next couple of weeks Wii-ing with Amy!
Over 4 days, I've done the Wii Fit for at least 25 minutes, done other games on the sports package (a workout too!), and done outside activities (like walking for 1 1/2 hrs. at the zoo)...and I gained 2 lbs., as of last night. We'll see if that's different today, because I'd just had dinner when I did the body test last night.
Amy & I will be logging our "activities" over the next couple of weeks to keep each other honest. Right now, I think we both love the Hula Hoop most-Amy caught 5 hoops at once! My highest was 3, but geesh, who knew hula hooping was such a freaking workout? I have been feeling the effects of the workouts-I am SORE!!!
