My Virtual Trainer Kicked My Butt
Who needs the gym? I have my own trainer at home! About a month ago, I ran across some hard-to-find Wii Fits and helped my husband out by buying my own birthday present. Hopefully, he didn't have some grand plans for my birthday that I ruined, but I'm pretty sure he didn't mind (our anniversary is coming up soon, John, if you had some jewelry in mind...). The Wii Fit is so cool! It has a hula-hooping ab workout, step aerobics, yoga, skiing, strength training exercises, etc. It's a lot of fun. Until yesterday, I really hadn't used the Wii Fit up to its potential. I'd just played the games and done the aerobic workouts. Yesterday, I decided to get serious. I did all the strength training exercises, and I have to say, "ow." My legs have definitely been throughout a workout. I've read some skeptical comments about the Wii Fit saying that a video game can't provide a good workout. My legs don't agree.
