Fitness Friday – Week 4!

When you set out to get fit, you know that you will have good days and bad days…or a week. πŸ˜‰ This week was my ‘one of those weeks’. Princess Nagger was off school the first 3 days of the week, so my ‘Mii’ and ‘Wii’ time was greatly compromised. I only had a chance to get on the WiiFit once – yesterday – after the Princess Nagger went to school. I planned on posting my update late today so I would have a chance to have done at least 2 workout sessions for the week instead of the measly one…except that Hovering Hubby came home a mere 1/2 hour after the Princess Nagger got on her bus to school. Arrrgh! My looked-forward-to ‘Me’ (and ‘Mii’) time was defunked way too many times this week. But there’s always next week… πŸ˜‰ At least the one workout session I got in yesterday was successful – I’ve lost another pound in spite of my lack of participation, so just think how much better it’ll be next week when I get my WiiFit Mii time! πŸ˜‰

Here are some examples of what I had to deal with this week:

A frumpy bed-head girl who didn’t want her hair brushed since she didn’t have to go to school…nice try!

That’s ‘shoulder-width’?

OK, my turn, I think I can do this…stepping on…

Oh yeah, this is comfy!
Wait…I feel like I’m leaning…are these floors sloped?!
Wait, who invited the little fuzzball to work out with me?

I’m sure the reason I still lost a pound even though I didn’t get the chance to work out daily is because I’m focusing on really watching what I eat. You know, like this:

Of course Cheez-Its make you thirsty, so how about some of this:

Here’s a closer look at the label (yes, I do sometimes buy wine based on if the label looks ‘cool’…this wine was actually really good!):
And look! I’m naked on the WiiFit!

Haha, perverts! πŸ˜‰ But these namesake pita chips are really really good – if you haven’t tried them yet, you must! Besides, they have a cool name… πŸ™‚

When it was all said and done, however, I did do much better with this:

So in spite of my lack of WiiFit Greatness this week, I did at least get on it one time, and the other days were spent playing various Wii games with the Nagging Princess – so aside from playing Harvest Moon (which is not a ‘physical’ game), the other games at least got us up and moving…just not as intensely as WiiFit. Next week will be my WiiFit week for sure! πŸ™‚

I sure hope your fitness week has gone better than mine! If you have a WiiFit and want to join in the fun, please do! You won’t be sorry…it’s great to have such a fun support group (which reminds me – I still need to make time to hang out at the WiiFit Mommies Forum more often…I haven’t been there in quite a while, sorry!) Oh, and don’t forget – February 13th (yes, Friday the Thirteenth) the WiiFit Mommies are having another Twitter Party – the last one was crazy fun, so don’t forget to mark your calendars and join in on the next one!

Until next week – have fun on your WiiFit workouts and don’t forget to sign Mr. Linky with your weekly WiiFit adventure posts! πŸ™‚

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. my weaknesses are salt and pepper potato chips and pretzel rods. i like terra chips too but those are marginally better, i think… well, they’re made with other stuff than potatoes!!! good for you you still lost a pound!!! who is better than you??!!!

  2. HaHa~ : )
    Do you think that there could be a new diet fad of eating Cheese it’s and wine? Keep it red!
    Thank you for your note today. : )

  3. I like the wine label, too–glad it was yummy! There’s always tomorrow to get back on the Wii–your animals are just too adorable πŸ™‚ My fitness week has been cut short as I was traveling today–and I don’t have an elliptical at my sisters. I won’t be back in the fitness game for 10 days πŸ™ Take care Stacy, and have a great weekend!

  4. Okay, I love the photo’s of everything else that got to use your Wii fit. The puppy and cats are too cute! At least somebody got to use it. Better luck next week. I still don’t have one, and if I ever do get one, I want the Rabbin’ Rabbits TV Party game. Not good for working out, but funny, it’s the first game to use your butt on the board!

  5. @Melissa: They also have some cinnamon and sugar ones that are also very yummy…the Princess Nagger prefers those over the ‘naked’ ones, though…heh, heh! Have a great weekend, too! πŸ™‚

    @annie kelleher: I think my hubby would really like the salt and pepper chips…he always adds tons of pepper (or anything to spice everything up) to his food…heh, heh! I was surprised to have lost a pound even though I wasn’t ‘regular’ on the WiiFit…but I think a lot of that still boils down to drinking way more water than I ever have before…(grin!!)

    @Momstart: Oh, yeah, chocolate! I’m lucky that I don’t have a chocolate craving like my hubby does…if we don’t have any chocolate in the house, he has to run down to the nearest convenience store to get some! LOL!! If I loved chocolate as much as he did, I’d never lose any weight…(snicker!)

    @CTgirlinKS: Cheez-Its and (red) Wine…the new diet fad! I’m lovin’ that! πŸ˜‰ LOL!!

    @Nicole: That is a pretty cool wine label, isn’t it? I was very pleasantly surprised at how good it was – especially since I didn’t notice until I went to open it that it had a screw cap! LOL! Next week I’ll have a lot more ‘Mii’ time since the Princess Nagger is in school the whole week…and hopefully Hovering Hubby won’t be cutting short his days like he did several times this week! (evil grin!) Oooh, 10 days until you’re back in the fitness game! Poor thing…but at least you get to visit your sister! πŸ˜‰ Have fun, and have a great weekend, too! πŸ™‚

    @Stacy: LOL! Yep, I figured I’d better show someone or something using the WiiFit board – since I only got to use it once this week! (grin!) Our cat loves to intrude and lay on everything we put down…I have trouble wrapping gifts (since I usually sit on the floor to do that) and he’ll constantly come over and lay on the paper…I toss him off, he comes right back…stubborn! LOL! Oh, I have seen previews of the Rabbin’ Rabbit game – it does look hilarious! I want to get that one, plus the Outdoor Adventure one…they keep coming out with hilarious games to play on the Wii – I like that we don’t end up sitting sedentary on the couch while playing video games – I feel less ‘guilty’ about playing games then…(snicker!)

    Thank you everyone, for stopping by! πŸ™‚

  6. Stopping by from Ann’s VGNO blog. I just got myself a WiiFit last weekend. Embarrassed to say I haven’t even gotten it out of the box yet! This weekend for sure! And I can check in again with you next Friday!

  7. @Just A Mom: When I first got my WiiFit, it took me a week (or three) to finally pull it out of the box and try it out…once you try it out, you’re gonna love it! πŸ˜‰ Looking forward to reading how you like it next week! πŸ˜‰ Happy VGNO! πŸ™‚

  8. Love it! I was all excited to see pix of the kitties (I am a cat fanatic) then I saw the 'naked' shots and I laughed out loud! Too funny.
    Thanks for visiting from Ann's VGNO. She rocks, doesn't she?
    πŸ™‚ robin
    cinnamon & honey

  9. It’s like that sometimes. At least you just ate a little bad and didn’t just go all the way off (as I’ve been known to do). Next week, you’ll get back on the wii!

  10. @Robin: Being a cat person, Robin, you would LOVE our cat – he’s so laid back and puts up with a lot… πŸ™‚ We’re still thinking about getting a kitten – a tiger striped one per the Princess Nagger’s request… πŸ˜‰ Thanks for laughing at my nakedness…(giggle!) Ann and her VGNO does rock! I’m so happy to participate tonight! πŸ™‚

    @Jenni Jiggety HAHAHAHA! Well, he started off good, but then when he tried to do the ‘tree pose’, he fell on his face…that’s why he has a flat face…those darn sloped floors! (evil grin!)

    @attygnorris: I was so tempted to be all bad all week…but resisted the temptation, especially since I knew it was going to be dicey with Princess Nagger home most of the week. So next week will absolutely be better! πŸ˜‰

  11. One can’t complain even if just one pound because you’re still headed down not up! Congrats on your success! The animals look silly on the WiiFit!

  12. @Yaya: LOL! Mission Accomplished! πŸ˜‰

    @blueviolet: I absolutely agree – I’m very happy that in spite of my lack of attentiveness to working out this week, I still went down a pound. I certainly can’t complain about that! πŸ™‚ The animals sure do look silly on the WiiFit, don’t they? I think they had fun, though…heh, heh! πŸ˜‰

  13. Love your cute Aussie! Oh puppies…. stopping in from VGNO! hope you’re having a fun Friday!!! LOVE the Wii day! I need to get one of those!!! πŸ˜€

  14. @GinSpaghetti: Puppies are just the best, aren’t they? πŸ˜‰ Glad you stopped by – I am having a fun Friday, hope you are, too! πŸ™‚ You will not be sorry if you get a Wii – they are so much fun! πŸ™‚

  15. Crikey you are hysterical!

    First of all…do you HATE the way animal hair sticks to those ridiculous pink covers on the fit board?

    Secondly…There is you…and the wine…again. We have GOT to be friends!! Is there a Wii Fit drinking game? Hmmm…

    Thirdly…it WAS that kind of week *hrumph* … but on we go. If we stay true to our posts and admit our ups (mine) and our downs(yours) … regardless.. we will be successful in the end!

  16. @Julie: Awww, thanks, Julie! You totally made my morning!! πŸ™‚

    @Jenn: LOL! Thanks, Jenn! Yes, I absolutely HATE how animal hair sticks to the ridiculous pink cover on the fit board – they get stuck in the little foot grip thingies…I find that packing tape does a great job at ‘clean up’! πŸ˜‰

    I’m always up for more wino friends! πŸ˜‰ You can never have too many…(snicker!) Oooh! A WiiFit Drinking Game – I’d be all over that! πŸ™‚

    I agree staying true to our posts is the best thing – that’s what the whole ‘support group’ thing is all about…people can relate to both the ‘up’ weeks and the ‘down’ weeks…and absolutely we will be successful in the end! πŸ™‚

  17. Oh I want a Wii Fit so badly. But so not in the budg this year…boo! Have fun with it and good luck!

  18. I love the critters on the Wii board, so cute! I’m wanting a WiiFit really bad too. I had a little cash saved up for one but they don’t seem to be selling them now. So I blew the money on something else.

  19. @Brittany: Your day will come, Brittany! πŸ˜‰ I lucked out by sniping one off eBay before the Holiday Rush… I find summertime months are a buyer’s market since everyone is pretty much away from their computers… πŸ˜‰

    @Julie: Thanks, Julie! πŸ™‚ Oh, I’ve been there…save up for something specific, then when it’s not available, spend it on something else…and if Murphy’s Law follows you any like it seems to follow me, then what you saved up for and no longer have the money for suddenly becomes available again!! LOL!! It’ll happen when it’s the ‘right’ time… πŸ˜‰

  20. LOL cute pictures…hey I get wine that has a firefly name LOL and it was pretty good πŸ™‚
