Wii Pfft

Well, I got Wii Fit today. I logged 19 minutes tonight, which does not include load time, demos, etc. I was actually at it for well over an hour.

I feel as though I've paid a bucket of money for a torture device. I might as well go out and buy a rack and thumbscrews to go with it. It is definitely not a game. It is not fun. It is exercise, pure and painful.

I selected my Mii, entered my height and date of birth, and then the system weighed me. It was quite depressing to see my little digital avatar inflate like a balloon. I know I'm obese and horribly out of shape. I have a lot of chronic aches and pains that I use as excuses not to exercise. Blah blah blah, whine whine whine. It's still disheartening.

Still, at least the trainer guides my pace and posture. So this might work better than my long-since-abandoned efforts to exercise solo with the inflatable balance ball. We'll see how it goes over the next few weeks.

Have you tried snowboarding? I've heard that part is fun.

I haven't unlocked snowboarding yet, but I'm looking forward to it.
