Ten Months -- TEN!

I've had Wii Fit since Christmas. I begged my husband for it and he got it for me. He didn't really want to. He thought it was like telling me I'm fat (well, duh, I am) and he didn't want me thinking he thought that of me. I kept telling him to get over it. I ASKED for it because I desperately wanted it. Anyway, I digress.

So, I've had it for 10 months.

I just recently checked out what "Free Step" was and am totally in love with it. I can watch tv (cooking shows I've got DVR'd) while I step onto and off of the wii balance board. It's great. I can mindlessly follow the rhythm coming out of the wii mote speaker while I watch my favorite shows. Where has this been all my life? Oh yeah, right in front of my face for the LAST TEN MONTHS! I feel like such a dork (which is a feeling I experience a lot -- just saying).

To be fair, I didn't really start busting a move on my Wii Fit until May when I'd finally had enough of everything and decided it was time to get fit once and for all (not to mention having to recover from the have a baby lose a gall bladder plan). So I guess five months instead. But still. That's an awful long time to have something so cool and not know it.

I tried the free step for a little while, but found that I preferred the 'stepping to music and follow the wii better.' Especially when I made celebrity wii's like Daniel Craig and Johnny Depp. :) Glad you like the free step!

How do you like the boxing? I thought it gave me a pretty good arm workout.

I never thought to make Daniel Craig or Johnny Depp Mii's.. You, Turkey, are a GENIUS!!!

I really like the boxing as well. Not only is it a great arm workout it makes me feel like a bad ass too. :D
