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.

  1. I love the title of today’s post. It made me giggle 🙂

    I’ve never tried using a Wii, but sounds like fun. My brother has one, I’ll have to give it a try sometime.

  2. Hi Kellycat! I am always a little bit surprised to see how many “older” folks own a Wii and are using it for exercise. If you get a chance to try your brother’s Wii, the console usually comes with Wii Sports. I really like Wii Sports. I like bowling with my oldest son, it’s something he can do well so he enjoys it, too. He plays video games very well any way, it’s just that some of the sports he can’t figure out how to do certain things. I also really like boxing! The tennis is pretty good. Baseball’s kind of boring. I bought the extra pieces from Big Lots (or was it Ross Dress for Less), the tennis racket connector part, the golf club (boring boring) and another couple of things but they really aren’t necessary, the remotes by themselves are fine. You’ll have to let me know if you try it!
