I cannot express the sheer excitement I had when I got my WiiFit. I WiiPii’ed myself a bit. I mean, I have coveted this baby since I first saw them demo it way back in … Well, I don’t remember when but it was a long time ago. And now? Wii have one. (Wait…I looked it up. It was almost a YEAR AGO I first talked about Wii Fit. That is a long time to keep me waiting. Let me just put that out there.)
Okay, so anyway *waving my hands around like an over eager 4 year old* My baby. My precious. My Wii Fit is home safe. Even though Clint says I can’t sleep with it…anymore.
I will admit it scared me at first. I mean it would know my darkest secrets. My BMI and weight? Uh, no. My OB/GYN is not even allowed to know that and he knows me pretty intimately, so to speak.
Thankfully, my good friend Donna showed me that I can password protect my information. I mean, really, my kids don’t need to know that “mama has a big ol’ butt (say whaaaaat?)” (Bonus to whomever got that reference.)
So there I go with my bad self all hula-hoopin and jogging and balancing etc. ONLY to find that my kids were watching and laughing and videotaping me with my Flip camera. Under penalty of boarding school, they deleted it. I swear if you find it on YouTube, the kids are shipped off tomorrow. Unless I can become more famous than the Star War’s kid and Momsense all in one. Or not. Because really? It would totally be laugh at me and not with me.
BUT I have lost 6 pounds. SIX. 1…2…3…4…5…SIX.
So worth the wait for Nintendo to actually release this bad boy. (Though some of the weight loss might be attributed to me standing in the Texas heat chasing down the mailman every time I saw him. But most likely not.)
And fun? We are talking literally fun for the whole family. No. Really! Stepford Scouts honor!
My only rule is the video camera? It has to stay put away. Until I have the body of Demi Moore and the dance moves of ….okay the only name I can think of is Carmen Electra’s Strip Exercise video. But the point is the same.
It is fun.
Wii love it!
(TOTALLY WORTH the WiiPii in my pants over its arrival. Totally.)
When making sure I was spelling hula hoop correctly– because you know I am all about being right– I went to look it up. (And was totally wrong but have seen it spelled my way as well.) This was the message I got.
There are no dictionary entries for hoola hoop………
but hoop is spelled correctly.
So kind and encouraging. “Hey, dumbass, we have no idea what you want to try to spell, but great job on getting the word HOOP spelled correctly.”
