Wii Not So Fit

I finally got around to checking out my Wii Fit last night. Without TV or Internet, we've been watching a progression of movies. Last night, I wanted something different. Chef Jr encouraged me to break out the box.

After a few hiccups with the balance board, I got on it. After cautioning me that most people stand with their weight unevenly distributed, it checked mine, only to find I'm only the tiniest fraction left of center. Not exactly what the dire prediction indicated.

Then, it tested how well I balance. This was preceded by a stern lecture that poor balance and posture cause health issues. Again, I was tested. Again, I came up with nearly perfect balance. Hi, Clumsy Dwarf here. Pleased to meet you. I've got no grace, but I do have good balance.

Finally, my Wii Age was determined. I've heard others speak of scores in the 70's when they're 30 years old. The thing calculated while I worried.

The grand result? Are you ready for this? Really?


















42.


My Wii age puts me at two weeks older than I actually am. Don't get me wrong, I can definitely get in better shape and improve my balance, but I'm showing up as nearly my actual age! Where's the motivation?

Mandy, I'm sure you'll have fun with it! Give it a go!

Donna, next time you're here, I promise. Or we'll bring it up the next time we come to you.

Kimberly, if you get a chance, try it. If a klutz like me can use it, anyone can. I just won't be able to do the aerobics exercises, since doctor says no impact.
