Does Wii count as exercise?
I doubt it...but in a moment of desperation I might suggest that I could burn a few extra calories during a family bowling game...couldn't I....what if I played for hours and hours would that count? Maybe I could just go for a family bike ride instead...if the rains stays away!
- So, I like reality TV, not all of it, I am selective: Amazing Race, Project Runway, Biggest Loser and Top Chef. Tuesdays are "Big Loser Night"...John is off playing hoop (not last night...he was away skiing) and I am sitting on the sofa like a bofa...last night it finally occured to me...if the folks of "Biggest Loser" can stand on a scale on national television wearing a sports bra or less than I could surely get up off my bum and exercise while watching. Out came the hand weights (note the layer if dust...yeah I use these every day!! NOT!) and yoga mat. I lifted, lunged, plied, pulled out a few pilates moves and pump out some push ups. Heck, if those folks can do it then surely I can do my part to cheer them on. Of course, as I write tonight I am watching "Project Runway" and not exercising...come on folks it's fashion not "sweating to the oldies"!
Seriously though, I did this workout today and did a hike/run (we live at the base of a hill so I hike up and run down). I burned off a few calories. Yes, I joined the ranks of January resolution folks bound and determined to lose the extra weight and get in shape. I had barely exercised since my eye surgery and I saw photos of me at Christmas and realized something drastic must happen. So let the counting points begin and the exercising take flight. We are headed to Czech in a month and I want to be in the photos and happy about it. I need Bob & Jillian (B.L coaches).
Hello sneakers! Good bye poundage!
