Wii Fit

wii-fit-3One of our Christmas presents (from me to my wife, though really more of a family gift) was a Wii Fit. I think this is a wonderful fitness tool and the whole family has been enjoying it for the last two weeks.

This works very well with my New Year’s Resolution of at least 30-minutes of physical activity per day. So far, so good, though I’ll have to get today’s time in either before or after pool this evening. And no, pool doesn’t count.

McKenzie also received a Wii game that works with the balance board — All Star Cheer. I need to have a look at what other games work with it and see if there’s anything worth getting.

    What a message to send to your wife.

    “Here, wife. A present. One that helps you lose weight. You may now reward me for my thoughtfulness.”

    whall – In my defense, she had expressed a desire for it. Plus, I’m pretty sure I’ve used it the most. Not quite at the “bowling ball named Homer” level, though.

    A little off-topic, but we were thinking of getting a Wii just for Fit. But Fit is so pricey these days, hard to justify the expense (when you add them up together). Maybe I’ll buy it for Mei as an anniversary gift!!

    Have you seen the commercial “Dog House” on Youtube?

    The guy Donny got his wife an absercizer (sp?). It is hilarious. My brother got his wife a new vacuum this year….

    See ya,

    I decided to go and try and find that video (since it sounded pretty funny), but wasn’t sure how to spell the absercizer. Instead I found this:

    Which gave me a small chuckle.

    OK, that’s pretty funny. Especially the way they keep calling him “dual-bag”.
