"Ohhh"…and a giveway!

So, like many of you out there we have a Wii.

We got it last summer “for the kids” and have had hours of fun playing…we bowl, sword-fight, ping pong and box the heck out of it!
After Christmas my kids wanted to get the next extension of the Wii ~ the balance board.  And frankly, after glomming to great lengths over the holidays, I decided it wasn’t a bad idea.  So we loaded up to Target and bought the board along with the Wii Fit Plus game.
Here’s my line of thinking…”Great!” Now I will totally work out everyday in my living room!  It will be such a great incentive!  I can play video games with my kids and lose weight!  Score!”

I am clearly delusional.

While the Wii Fit Plus is fun and much better for you than sitting on your bar stool watching reruns of King of Queens and popping Hershey’s Kisses, it isn’t the answer to all my fitness woes.
Just my opinion.
And here’s the thing…I am sure that if you do it everyday you will definitely benefit from moving more, but my day on the Wii balance board has ceased.
Do you wanna know why?
Here’s the first of 3 answers….
Ohhhhh
Yes, you read that right.  A 2 letter word said with emphasis by an unnamed, pleasant-enough sounding, computer generated voice.  A voice probably programmed to be soothing during this most difficult moment. 
I stepped on the balance board and the Wii lady-voice literally moaned in pain. 
Ohhhh
In other words, “OUCH, Get off me you fatty!”
Really?  
Do I need the Wii-lady making me feel worse than my drawer of size 4’s that I haven’t a wish or a prayer of ever getting back into already do?
Moving on to the second reason I am done with Wii Fit…
Watching my “Mii” grow to the size of a small boulder and my kids laughing saying “Mom!  Your Mii is so fat!”
Nothing better than that, my friends.  Nothing better.
And finally the 3rd reason I am not feeling the Wii Fit game…
If you haven’t played in a while be prepared to get a lecture.  Like I really need more guilt in my life.
Thanks Wii Lady!
I will say, however, the kids LOVE the balance board AND the Wii Fit Plus game.  They have had hours of fun on it since we got it, but my days of dodging soccer balls being lobbed at my head are over.
O-V-E-R.
So, now I am back to regular old-school working out.  That’s hitting the pavement y’all.  
That’s me out there walking those streets…slow down people, you drive too fast!
And I suppose I CAN count the trips I take to and from the oven while I am baking cookies, right?  
Yes, that definitely counts!!

 I  recently made Bunco cookies…I have never played Bunco, but I hear it is a game that involves dice and a pad…
I am very literal.

Rolling the dice sort of counts as an exercise too…it’s a wrist and arm workout.  Right?  Maybe I will take up Bunco!

So, now for the reason that you guys have read this post.
A little thank you for sticking with me through all of the nonsense I write.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Normally, I'd completely agree with you and say that cookware.com is my favorite CSN Store…but we just moved to an apt with a backyard, so right now, http://www.barbecuegrillsandmore.com/ is definitely my favorite!

Oh my goodness, I'm laughing so hard at the Wii story because I can relate 100%!! "ohhhh" and I also love that when my daughter or husband turn it on and it greets them it sometimes gives them an opportunity to comment on my bad progress so the lecture becomes SUPER personal! I was going to do Wii Yoga everyday…..not so much!

I'm a follower!

I've never played Bunco but if I could use that as my form if exercise then I'm in. ha ha!

I came SO close to buying a set of Le Creuset today and I didn't even though it was at an awesome price. So this is what I'd chose from there.
