I finally set up my Wii Fit this afternoon. I did the Body Test to determine my BMI & Wii Fit age. Not good. Not good at all. My Wii Fit age is 52 (and I’m really 35). I’m not gonna share my BMI … I’ll just say I need to bring that down (a lot). My center of balance was off too. Not surprised. I always knew I had crappy posture.
I did some of the balance tests. Oh boy. Either I need to figure out how much the Wii Fit adjusts to what movements, or my balance is just horrible. I suck at the soccer heading game. I did a little better at the ski slalom, but that still wasn’t pretty.
But this is a starting point. I didn’t expect to be perfect right out of the gate. I know that I need lots of work. But seeing just how bad I am is definitely a motivational tool.
I’ve always been competitive about things. This won’t be any different. I’ll just be competing against myself this time. It’s a win-win. The only way I can lose is if I quit. And that just isn’t acceptable.
I think I know how I’m going to incorporate the Wii Fit into my routine. I’ll do either the elliptical or my Walk Away the Pounds dvd in the mornings before work (even if I have to start going to bed at 8pm just to drag my ass out of bed at 5am) and then the Wii Fit when I get home from work (before supper). Once I get the hang of things more with the Wii Fit, I’ll start to work in the other 2 games I have (EA Sports Active & The Biggest Loser).
Now I just need someone to make sure I’m moving forward with this … someone to make sure I get my ass out of bed in the mornings and do SOMETHING … someone to make sure I don’t get frustrated or lazy and just stop. Anyone interested in applying for the position? 😀
