I've discovered Wii Fit
This is quite a departure from my usual posts, but I'm having so much fun, I thought I'd share that here. Whoever invented the Wii Fit is a genius. Let's see how long this keeps me motivated, of course. Anything to do with exercise (which doesn't involve dancing) rarely holds my interest for long. I'm just not a sporty person at all. Never was. Hated Physical Education at school, and was always below average in any kind of competition. But of course, as years pile up on me, and make my body shrink and go all flabby, I know I have to do something. The great thing about the Wii, as opposed to any workout machine, is the interactive aspect of it. Not only are you not alone, but someone talks to you - today, as I was doing the run, I had my daughter's avatar preceding me (loved that) even though she was already at school - and your progress are chartered, and celebrated... Yep, love the thing. Of course, I could get all that by going to the gym, but that's precisely the beauty of it. I don't have to go to the gym, I can stay right at home.
