Week 5! Really? I kept thinking this was Week 4, but last week’s bummer week was actually Week 4… So this week still wasn’t a 100% WiiFit week, but it was certainly better than last week! Monday I went a little overboard and played on the WiiFit for…ahem…2 hours! I sort of lost track, and my competitive nature came out because I’m still trying to hit that 2000 score on Hula Hoops – my left side is my ‘weaker’ side, so it keeps bringing me down score-wise, prohibiting me from getting to that 2000 mark! I’ll get there…I’m determined to! 😉
The other one I’ve been having issues with is the Rhythm boxing – I’m still trying to get my hands and feet to coordinate like they’re supposed to, but I’m definitely getting better. At least I figured out that I actually do have to move my feet (you know, follow the instructions and watch closely). The very first time (a couple of months ago) that I tried the Rhythm Boxing I just kept swinging at the bag – thinking it was similar to the one on Wii Sports. Once I figured out why the trainer was mocking me, I finally started doing much better. Well, that and the Princess Nagger was laughing at me telling me “You have to move your feet, Mama!” Nothing like having to have your 5 year old (at the time) tell you how to do the boxing… (giggle!) 🙂
Besides the Step being one of my favorites (because it’s so fun) is trying to get the Ski Slalom and Snowboard Slalom down – I keep missing one to three flags on the way down, and can’t seem to get them all…but it’ll happen! 😉 Every once in a while I still fail at the Ski Jump – for some reason I either do really well and jump really far, or flounder and barely jump at all…I’m thinkin’ it’s my sloped floors working against me…(snicker!) I’m still only at 2-stars on the Penguin Slide – I keep wanting to shift the opposite way that I’m supposed to, so I keep sending my Penguin into the cold, freezing water… We’re not even going to talk about Yoga this week, because I still suck at it…new Yoga pants or not! (grin!) Though my persistence on the Penguin Slide today unlocked yet another Yoga pose…yay. 😉
But the most important thing is I’m having so much fun, and losing weight – this week saw me bid adieu to 1.5 more pounds! 🙂 I didn’t do 5 days worth of WiiFit this week because life got in the way, so I’m glad I spent the extra time on Monday since Tuesday and Wednesday were a no-go with the Modified Kindergarten for the Princess Nagger on Tuesday, and no school on Wednesday from the ice. Thursday I was able to spend almost 1-1/2 hours on it, and today I was cut short at about 45 minutes because Hovering Hubby came home from work early… 🙂
I had a great week in spite of running on fumes all week from lack of sleep, and I’m sure clearing the sidewalks from ice encased snow helped out a bit, too, on those days I wasn’t able to play with the WiiFit. 🙂
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 at the WiiFit Mommies Forum. 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!
