the Rob D MiiHeidi has been trying for ages to get her hands on a Wii Fit… she always manages to just miss finding one in the store. Well she recently managed to catch one and tonight we finally unboxed it and got it all hooked up.

It’s fair to say that the Wii Fit does not care for me. It made my Mii all chubby, called me fat, and then told me that I have no sense of balance. Oh and my Wii Fit age is 45… I’m 27 by the way. Yikes dude. I wonder if masters will let me use my Wii Fit age to enter swim meets. I’d finally be able to hit some qualifying times for nationals!

Some of the activities are a little harder than I would have thought and they all make you look stupid out of context. I highly recommend never using a Wii Fit near a camera or a cell phone. I’m going to keep playing with it for a little while but I think I much prefer my Guitar Hero and Rock Band.

Before I was made fun of by a video game I went to the real gym for about an hour. I’m really sore from swimming yesterday so I decided to give my swimming muscles a day off but still go work out. I put in a little more than 30 minutes on the elliptical machine and then lifted weights for a while. This week I want to work really hard and then ease up a little next week before the pentathlon at CalTech. I want to swim fast at that meet!

    Yeah, I tried that thing. Some of the things are almost impossible even if you are perfectly stable.

    The Yoga stuff is a bit intense. Wait until you unlock the Dancer pose!

    Also, lord help you if you miss a day. That thing starts talking mad crap!

    I haven’t tried the yoga stuff just yet… I spent the evening ski jumping, hula hooping and make believe running. I might venture into Yoga and strength training tonight. I was really surprised at how much shit the game was talking, I thought it was supposed to be all fluffy and friendly! Apparently I set off the passive aggressive trainer mode.

    Yeah, it talks mad crap. The running is jacked up. It never worked for me. I love the boxing though. That’s fun. My wife likes the step classes.

    Yoga is actually pretty cool. Some of the strength training just doesn’t work with that board.
