Hula Hoopin Hip Hop Queen! (say that 5 times fast!)

So I caught up. (If you notice from the posts below! Phishew I hate getting behind! Wink)

I have one word to say to you... (okay well maybe it is two)

Wii FIT!

I am in love! I think I pretty much threw out my hip and I hurt in places I didn't even know it was possible to hurt but it is soooo worth it! I Think I love my wii fit too much if that is possible! I am the queen of the hula challenge! (Who knew hula hooping could be considered a work out- well it is!!) The boys and I are all fighting over whose turn it is to play!

I have to say in the beginning I was skeptical. It asks you your age, height and even weighs you! (I always wondered what a talking scale would be like and now I know!) It didn't come right out and tell me I was fat but my BMI is well above average and the system "chubbed" up my Mii character- needless to say I put a lock code on my Mii fit gal so no one else can be peepin' at my stats! Other than the rocky weigh-in start up, the Hub and I battled it out to see who could get the better downhill ski jump score and much to his dismay I rocked the top score pretty hard! (that was until he somehow pulled a Hail Mary (I call it cheating) and beat my score by like 2 points) This new electronic device will bring much pleasure to our home. (and hopefully some weight loss too!)

I took a day off today and spent it watching movies that we have had and I've not watched yet. (Lots from when I was inpatient and just wasn't in the mood to watch then.) So I watched The Invasion and The Reaping. Both on the thriller side, but was able to pause the thrills to change laundry or make bottles. The twins pretty much slept on me through each movie which was nice to have a little snuggle time. Unfortunately I will now have to bust buns to get the rest of the house tidied up. No worries though- Apparently I am in Fit Mode so I can do anything!
*clears throat as if to cut through the sarcasm.

[On a weigh in note -1lb in the past three wks- but hey I'm maintaining and thats good- lets see if the new wii fit helps with the exercise portion.)

Can I come over and play?

How fun!! I'm definitely getting Wii Fit. I used to hula hoop when I was little and I was the jump rope champion at my elementary school, too. So there. lol! I don't know if i like the idea of the thing weighing me, though. I mean, does it tell you before it weighs you? WHat if you don't want it to weigh you, cuz like, its really none of its business how much I weigh. What if it tells its friends or publishes it on my blog (cuz I'm sure it can hack my password)..... now i'm afraid of my Wii!

That sounds so fun! I think I just might have to buy this one! If I wasn't convinced before, I am now.

I was always terrible at the hula hoop. I can only imagine how terrible I would be at the electronic version.
