limbering up on the wii fit

Right well that is one new years resolution down the swanny!

Trying to do anything like exercise, I thought I would try the wii fit. The rest of the family have gone out for the morning so I thought I would give it a try.

First, the thing weighs you.

Waiting for the voice saying "one at a time please" I squint sideways at the screen which reveals the tonnage.

Thankfully it didnt direct me to the local weighing bridge, and goes for a gentle programme.

I have a sit down as cannot stand on the thing for long- which throws it into a hissy fit.

I get through the "gentle programme", moving counting and lunging about.

Aching and hurt, I sit down, exhausted. It then reveals this is just setting the damn thing up! HA! It doesn't like the way I stand and that my weight is not only clearly vast it is "unequally balanced".

UNEQUALLY BALANCED?!

If anyone was walking past the WonkyWarrior house they may have heard a few fruity bits of language as I explained in simplistic anglo saxon terms that I had almost killed myself on the damn wii fit and that please would it mind keeping its opinions to itself in future.

What can a wonkywarrior do to get fitter? Perhaps be more imaginative?!

What do you RAers do to get fitter?

LOL I totally get that! I tired the Wii about two years ago at the urging of a good friend. Well after two sessions, I couldn't move for a week so I gave the whole kit-and-kaboodle to my younger son. He has a blast with the Wii talk thingie as he can play online games with his friends and they can all talk together at the same time! At least it's good for something (but not for me!).

For me, a good workout is making it through the grocery store for 10 minutes.

I used to dance several times a week and teach dance class once a week. I've been thinking about pulling out my cds and giving it a very gentle go here at home on the extra-padded carpet. Just like maybe 5 minutes to start -- easy dance, not strenuous crap. And with Beau to dance beside me to catch me if I stumble! Hmmm how do train the dog to stay on my right side when I'm dancing? that's a trick question!

My son has been on the wii fit board doing some sort of skiing!
I had a dog from canine partners. http://www.caninepartners.co.uk/ I trained with the lady on the front page. We did clicker/treat training. I like dancing, do you do it with a DVD or something?

Oh my gosh if I did that there would not be enough prednisone or any other drug to undo what has been done? ehheeh.

I just moderate all things so I keep my joints warm and my body in motion. I'm going to give some tai chi a try.
Gentle hugs.
