Hula Hoopster...

I'll tell you what, that Wii can kick butt. I'm having a blast with the hula hoop. I did it three times this morning trying to better my time with each try (which I did, BTW) and I was sweatin' like a pig. I had my doubts before the WiiFit arrived, that it was just boring and too easy. But now I know it isn't too easy. Needless to say I'm a lovin' it. I'm having some difficulty on the balancing part but I can handle the aerobic portion just fine. Will have to put in some more practice on the balancing to get better. I didn't even think to put my HRM on to see what the calorie burn was but will next time and report in.

Sure is pretty out today. Supposed to be up to 50 degrees. Talked to my neighbor this morning and he said there was a really bad storm coming. The National Weather Service doesn't say anything about it but the neighbor said it is the talk of the county and they are usually right. We shall see.

According to some of the comments about my going on maintenance, some of you think I won't be here anymore. Hey guys, I ain't goin' anywhere!!! I still need you. You are my support team. I can't maintain without each and every one of you. So if some of you thought you'd be gettin' rid of me, it ain't gonna happen. I'm here to stay. And besides, I'd miss you and what goes on in your lives too much to leave. You're my nationwide friends!!!!

Injoy Super Bowl Sunday!!

Your balance should improve with more experience. Which reminds me I need to be working on some balancing exercises myself!

Be careful in the storm! {nervous Cammy}

My goodness, I thought you had gone and bought yourself a hula hoop. My is next to the couch so when I feel like bending over I a lot I can use it. I had wondered if going on maintanence was a nice way of saying bye bye so I'm so glad to know it isn't. I would miss you a lot. I think I'm getting Wii fever. Gosh darn it hide the credit card!!

Come on down to San Diego! We don't even have weather here; it's either nice, or it's early January. That's it.

And yeah, the WiiFit is spectacular!

Balance has been the most difficult thing for me. I've noticed that I've improved a little though. I love the WiiFit. :-) Glad you're enjoying it.

I'm so glad you are enjoying your Wii Fit! It really does work you out! I have to work on my balance, too. My "trainer" tells me my left side is much weaker than my right. Kinda freaky when they talk to you like they can see you, huh?

Hope you don't get that bad weather!
