Are There Rules About That?

Are There Rules About That?

Today, oddly enough, I wound up with more time than I usually do. I planned to do both the Yoga and Strength games all the way through. I did the Strength ones first, because I remembered hating them — I remembered right — but then I was hungry enough that I had to eat dinner. So I took a break, ate dinner, and came back and did the Yoga exercises. Are there rules about exercising so soon after eating? Oh well ๐Ÿ˜›

Wii Fit Time: 50 mins
Games: Strength, Yoga

I thought about doing some of the other games to get to a full hour, but the Yoga back exercises make for a good cool down. I’ll have to remember that, and leave them until the end next time.

Now I need to remind myself how to add items to the store ๐Ÿ™‚

So, according to my Wii Fit (“Well, well, well… if it isn’t BD”) it’s been 25 days since I last checked in. Therefore, today I went with the “something is better than nothing” theory ๐Ÿ˜›

I’ve also made two decisions. The first is that I need to ditch the daily body test and only do it weekly. I’m not sure how accurate the scale on the Balance Board is, but when it results in occasionally jumping up four pounds for no reason, only to drop down again the next day, it’s somewhat demotivational.

The other is that while the yoga and aerobics has certainly helped my flexibility and endurance, they haven’t done much else. Therefore, I’m going to try to focus on the strength exercises for a while. I don’t like them as much, so I started neglecting them before ๐Ÿ˜›

Anyway, short list today, and I went back to the smallest duration on most of them.

Wii Fit Day Thirty-five

Got in my thirty minutes, which I didn’t expect. I decided to go on a third instance run, even though I knew our estimate was going to be off?

“Can we do thing in fourty-five minutes?”

“Yeah, sure.”

*an hour and fifteen minutes later*

“Thanks, gotta go, bye!”

Wii Fit Day Thirty-two

I tried Free Step, which is supposed to be done while you’re watching TV (the remote gives you instructions). I’m trying to figure out why they still have text instructions on the screen ๐Ÿ˜› Maybe they expect picture-in-picture or something.
