Sore muscles... so very soooooore...

Using the Wii is fun, but slightly exhausting. And I'm not very good at it yet: I cycled around the island and kept falling over a waterfall. I still haven't managed to cycle round to all the little flags. (Eventually the Wii took pity on me and asked me if I wanted to give up. I said "...yes please" and tried something easier.)

Now my housemate is moving furniture, and I am sitting on the couch moaning about my poor poor legs...

My Wii has decided, based on my weight, ability to balance, etc, that I am clearly 40 years old.


*glares at it*

It then told me my weight and BMI, and told me to set myself a fitness goal for the next month. So basically, "In a month I want to have a weight of _____ and a BMI of _____!"

...I'd prefer it if I could set a goal of "In a month, I want you to agree with me that I'm 28."

*is old and decrepit*

I just bought a Wii-Fit! And a Wii!


Ironically, I've given up "unnecessary spending" for Lent. But despite it being shiny and exciting, I decided this was definitely necessary spending: I've been considering it for months, and am making a Long Term Investment In My Fitness. Or some sort of thing like that.

The way I figure it, I'm
1) ultra-competitive
2) way too lazy to go outside if it's cold, or raining, or dark, or if I just don't feel like it.

Thus I get no exercise. But this is right there, not in the cold dark rainyness, only takes ten minutes at a time (unless I feel excited), and also records my high scores. And since my high scores are currently... well, rather low... my competitive instincts kick in every time I look at them, thus motivating me to keep on exercising! I will get really fit!

See? Necessary spending.

(I did, however, pass up the opportunity to buy many exciting console games, as well as a Wii-Party, on the grounds that they were clearly unnecessary spending. And I'm doing my whole Lent thing, despite not being Catholic.)

But anyway - Wii-Fit! Woo!

I've created a little "Mii", who looks just like me, and has already improved her tennis scores...
