Well, it’s been about three weeks, and the Wii Fit and I have had a wonderful Honeymoon! I’ve been back at “work” for a week now, and I’m convinced I need to make a few changes. I have lost close to three pounds, and I guess that’s pretty standard- a pound a week. However, my routine has been non-existent this week.
My problem? Getting up early in the morning. I’d rather get a splinter under my fingernail than wake up before dawn, especially after writing till midnight, or being woken up by little princesses. I’ve never been a morning person, but I know I could do better at getting moving. If I don’t do it right away, there are a million things that will wrestle my attention away from exercising.
The positive side is that I have noticed a distinct difference in my posture! I really think this is a result of the work on my obliques using the Hula Hoop game, as well as the Yoga and Balance Games. I thought my belly looked slimmer this morning, but I don’t know if my mind is playing tricks on me.
My husband, on the other hand has been on that thing before the crack of dawn every day! Honestly, I’m a little jealous that I don’t have the resolve that he does. But I’m getting there! I’m sure I’ll get plenty of exercise when 8 eight-year-olds come over for a birthday party tonight!
My next steps are:
- Try to go to bed at a normal time like most of the civilized world.
- Set a routine of doing the Wii Fit first thing in the morning, before email and blogs, and advertisers, and little arms pull me away!
