Wii Mii

Not sure what possessed me to torture myself like this, but I went out and bought myself a Wii Fit*.

I set the bugger up. I step onto the balance board. It lets out a little sigh. It proceeds to tell me I am a fat ass and turns my svelte avatar into the fatty that you see on this screen. Nice.

Kiki meets the Wii Fit

I am fat. 50 pounds overweight to be exact. My scale tells me that every day…for free!

I sit here contemplating why I just spent $100 on this contraption (included the sleeve that protects it from your stinky and sweaty feet), when I decide to go through the menu to see what else it can beat me down on before I package it up and ship it back to Amazon. For giggles, I decide to try out their yoga. 45 minutes later, I have blown through the yoga, did some strength training and played a couple of balance games.

I am hooked.

Best part of it, I woke up the next day feeling these things…I think some people call them ‘muscles’…in my sides that were a bit sore from the ‘workout’ the day before.

What do you know, Nintendo might be on to something. ‘Playing’ a video game has the potential to help me shed a few pounds off this fat ass and might just possibly turn me into a phat ass. ::fingers crossed::

*DISCLAIMER: The Wii Fit link above does go to my Amazon referral page. If you click on it and choose to order the system, I think I will make something like $1.

    Hi Kristie. 1st i would like to say that your blogs are very enticingly interesting. Your blogs offer a sense of community and normality that many blogs may not offer. I also left the stove on and burnt my daughters bottle....i fell asleep with the stove on. And my wife wanted to throw her wii fit out the window when she first stepped in it. But the main reason for this email is i am an intern for profectio.com. We will be hostingSocial Media Showdown annual awards and confrence. We are currently looking for additional media sponsors to promote the afore mentioned events. We are fully aware of the work you have done, with the launch of Social Media CLub. I have already attempted to reach Chris, but thought i would also invite you as well as your activity amongst the web and social media is impressive and attractive. We hope that you would be interested. Sincerly, Keron Khan Intern for profectio.com
