Wednesday is usually a workout-at-home day because it's my husband's softball night. My friend Dianne picked up my little one for zumba, and I stayed home to do a work out. I didn't want to repeat the hot-stuff run from yesterday, so instead I pulled out the Wii remote and nunchuk to do the Active day 3 workout.
I was able to remove the running portion of the workout. The only problem is that it didn't add anything else in it's place. I also had issues with the game not reading my movements. My little avatar was not following me and the trainer was telling me I was going to need to step it up if I wanted results. I guess I had to readjust the nunchuk or something because after the first couple of exercises everything was fine. Today's workout had more arm exercises and included tennis and dancing using the balance board. It was fun but not nearly as intense as the previous days.
While I was working out, some neighbor girls came by to see if my little one could play. I found out later that one girl told her mom I was playing the Wii. Maybe this will raise my status and make me cooler with the younger crowd in the hood.
It could happen.
