Losing my religion

I put my gym membership on hold. Due to freakin' stupid knee medical reasons.

Now what?

Well, despite the fact that gall bladder issues should dictate a lower fat diet with subsequent bonus weight loss, just sitting around doing nothing will only add to the jelly roll six pack that has now invaded my mid-section. So perhaps it's a good thing that we're not going anywhere remotely "beach" this winter break.

So a girl must do what a girl must do.

Let's check out Wii Fit!!!

Oh how tempting it would have been to just use my 8 year old son's profile; but I had to be honest here and set up my own. Okay.

After standing on the board, entering my stats (they get pretty personal, height, weight, birthday, etc...I must admit it is a pretty sophisticated technology to be able to calculate my BMI and all)...I was ready to do the balance tests. And with the encouragement of my children around me, I figured I didn't do too badly.

So I waited with eager anticipation to see my Wii Fit age...

TA - DAHHHHHHH:


59

WHATTTTT????!!!!

Good Lord.

So what's a girl to do?

Why, do the Body Test again. TA-DAHHHHHHH:



58

So what's a dejected girl to do? Well, after following a couple of toning exercises led by my male and then female trainers, we needed a break:





But I did go back in the evening, 1.8 additional pounds later, and tried the Body Test again (I never said I wasn't a cheater)...


Whoooppeeee!!!!

Thank goodness we have sites like this.


(It's amazing what a hat, glasses and a beer will do for you...)

Enjoy some additional vintage:

We don't have Wii fit yet. I'm afraid I'd be about 98.

Kami said...

I loved that song until 90210 ruined it on a Brenda/Dylan break up episode! 90s dramas just ruin everything!!!

Huckdoll said...

Gah...you missy, are one of the tiniest, fit, active little mamas on the internets! No way in heck I'm getting on the Wii Fit now!

C said...

Karen, you are too cute! 59? Wuteva! I think the Wii Fit must have been on the fritz! I'd say you'd score more along the lines of 21!

Ed said...

That's just not right!

Badness Jones said...

I haven't checked out the Wii fit yet....to be honest I'm a wee bit afraid of it!

OHmommy said...

@Gina: I think its' a conspiracy, really.
@Kami: thx, girl, you're too kind :)
@Beck: I think it's dyslexic in your case
@Domestic Goddess: I agree!
@Huckdoll: Hon, your too sweet, and look who's talking about teeni-tiny??
@C: hugs to you sweetie, glad to see baby gives you a break to do some surfing ;) -- or are you just boobing LOL?
@Ed: not right indeed!
@Badness: I've decided I need to do something, so at least the running around I did to get the darn WiiFit would be worth it for me somehow...
@OhMommy: I wonder if standing on the board in stilettos might improve my score ?

I've never tried wii fit, but you're scaring me!

Cheryl said...

Oooh I did that test on my Wii Fit too! The results were NOT pretty! Maybe that's why I have yet to pull it back out.
I'll Wii if you Wii?

Yo Momma said...

Uh OH, now I'm afraid to get the Wii Fit.!
