muscles – hurt

Last fall my Gadget Boy brought home a Wii.  Initially, I was not happy. I consider this a “major” purchase, or at least one that deserves a conversation between two, consenting adults.  Then, as with most of his gadget/electronic purchases, I used it and was hooked.

We bought it early enough in the season that there were still Wii Fits on the shelf.  Aw – we’ll get one for the holidays (she says).  I finally got one about 2 weeks ago.  Got right on there and tried some yoga.  Earned points, etc etc.  Then I didn’t touch it for two weeks.  This last weekend I decided it was time to move forward.  Did more yoga on Sunday. Yay!

Then my usual Monday gym – 40 mins cardio, 20 mins core.  And Tuesday, well – I’ll just get up 30 minutes earlier and do some more yoga.  I felt the burn yesterday. Today – again my usual gym rat routine.  And, my muscles are *tired*!!  I sent a mail to my trainer explaining that I may  need a different kind of work out tomorrow since I’ve worked out 4 days in a row and I usually don’t push that hard.

She laughed.  Made some comment about people underestimating the Wii Fit.  You kinda brush it off ’cause it’s a video game right?  Yet working to stay in form and keep my center of balance in that yellow bar, holy crap that is hard. 

Looking forward to my yoga prowess and keeping on track to get my Linda Hamilton terminator arms. uh-huh, you know it, you want guns like mine…

    I so relate to this phenomenon!

    Bryan keeps bugging me to get a wii fit because he knows I like yoga and he thinks I’ll like it, but I’m skeptical. Good to hear it’s actually worth something. 🙂
