Wii Wii Wii All The Way Home

I've been working night and day literally. I'm exhausted. But I made a committment to myself to get back out in real life and be more social. I haven't done much of that YET. But it's starting.

But another committment I made to myself was to lose some weight and get in better shape. It's not that I don't have some shape, it's just not the shape I'd like to have. So I lobbied hard for a Wii for my birthday and I got one. Well truth be told, I had a certificate from recent clients as a thank you gift for helping them and gave it to the parentals to combine to get me the Wii.

I'd rather die than have you think I'm spoiled...when I'm not. Someday when I actually am I'll brag about it to youse! ;)

So I've been playing the Wii Fit as many days in a row as I possibly can. The Fit was my gift to me. NEENER to you!

At first it told me I was the age of 42, then 44 and then in less than a week it said I had the age of 34. I think the first two were big lies...constructed by democrats who snuck into my Wii and programmed it to say such horrid things. I gave it a lashing or two and they ran away and now my proper age according to my fitness is shining through!

I've played enough to open new games. This is a concept I detest. First: I paid $100 for this game and who is anyone to hold back games from me. It should be my choice. Second, well see my first!!!!!

However I've unlocked quite a few games. One of them is rythmic boxing which I really like. I might even video myself for all you to watch (and laugh your asses off at) if I'm feeling bold.

So after I sign off from writing this post I'm going to play my Wii and commit to a half hour of this until I lost 10 lbs!

As for the social stuff. I've joined a local meetup group and we are having dinner right across the street from where I live. Pefect time, location and well just perfect for my social needs. There's a karaoke happening after that event, nearby but not in my neighborhood that I might check out later if I'm not called to work. I'll of course blog about these events after I attend.

WOo HOo! I'm so happy for you! Greg bought the Wii game and he was ticked that I could do better at the step on my first try when he had done it about 20 times. Hehe. That's the only thing I can do better than him though.

Looking forward to reading about your social stuff!

Sounds like fun - the Wii and the social club. Enjoy yourself!
