My children have had Nintendo for many years and I have never had much interest in playing the games. I never could figure out how to make anything work.
But since the Wii came out, I really love this system! If my youngest son ever moves out, I will probably invest in one to keep at home for me and our older son to use.
Today is my second day to do a workout using the EA Sports Active. I saw a review for it, and decided I would get it and try it out. I've wanted to try the Wii Exercise game that has the balance board, but it costs a lot more (close to $100 last time I looked).
The EA Sports Active doesn't need the balance board, which is also a plus since it would probably be hard for my older son to use.
We both did a workout yesterday, and I didn't realize when I did my first workout that I could omit running from my “easy” exercise routine that I'd picked. I actually had to run for like two minutes!
But you know what?! I was able to do it!! I had to stop and put on a sports bra, but I was able to run! I was a little sore today, but I went ahead and did the second workout.
We had my older son's “new” birthday today, finally. Now I have replaced the photos that I lost of his birthday a few months ago. I did quite a bit of housework today, and I started packing my suitcase. I think I have almost everything ready. I'm drying one more batch of blueberries, the last of the 24 pints that hubby brought home.
I have been having some pain in my left thumb which feels kind of like arthritis. I'm not too happy about it, and I think I must be deficient in something.
I was also thinking I am going to try to make a point to take a detox bath every night, and also be sure to take my cod liver oil and everything else that I can which will help me to tolerate our busy vacation.
Too bad I can't take the Wii with me! But I probably won't have a lot of spare time to workout with a television. OH boy. It's getting close. I'm trying not to get all excited, that's not so good for my adrenals.
