Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Time for Me and My Fun with Wii Fit Plus

One of my NY Resolutions is to get more exercise. Not just "get more" but I am committing to a minimum of 3 hours. I'm using Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus and with this being my first week (ending tomorrow) I only have 30 minutes left to complete my goal. The first day I set a goal of 30 minutes and actually lasted for an hour. I think the reason Wii Fit keeps me coming back is because it "grades" or "scores" each activity. I'm totally a competitive person so it keeps my trying to beat my high scores.

Wednesday night I got on to just have a little fun with the balance games and it said I had lost 15.4 pounds from my previous weigh in, the day before, obviously an error. I then had to get on yesterday and answer why I had gained 15 pounds. I answered "I don't know" because I knew it was just a glitch, and there wasn't a response for that, and my trainer gave me several tips. So sweet of him.

I finally made it through the beginner level of the obstacle course. The kids love to watch this one and crack up every time a ball smacks me in the head and launches me into the water. It's fun to listen to them giggle and motivation to get all the way through. I pretend I'm Super Man leaping over steel buildings, sometimes I make it, sometimes I end up going for a swim. Speaking of Super Man, is anyone good at the flying one? I gave up after miserably missing the very first target. I did make it through the beginner level of the cycling without my Mii stopping in the grass... after several tries, though. It took some time to get the footing just right, but I did it. I suck at Kung Fu, but I want to be good. This girl has no rhythm and that makes it hard. I'll keep trying though. Hula Hooping is fun, though I must admit, after 3 minutes my hips no longer remember how to keep turning. Haven't dropped any, but this is another case of getting hit in the head while trying to catch them. Seriously. You try leaning forward while still swiveling your hips. Not as easy as it sounds.

While I'm pretty sure I have not lost any weight yet (other than the magical 15 in one day) I know I'm doing my body good in getting it moving, stretching and just taking some time for me (mental health, right?). I look forward to continuing and working to consistently beating my high scores and trying new exercises as well. I'll keep you posted.
