my lips have been so chapped today, it looks like i’m wearing lipstick at this point.
i don’t think it’d be any surprise as to what my netflix icon is
what a coinkidink
i wonder if anyone else remember this song, let alone this game.
so i figured i’d keep a daily log for the purpose of tracking physical progress in my using wii fit u, which i guess also doubles as an extended review of sorts.
so first the stats
total exercise time today: 1 hour 2 minutes
bare in mind, this isn’t all at once, but for the whole day.
total calories burnt today:474 cal
the one thing i’m finding quite nice about the game is it does a pretty nice job of is giving me an idea of what i’m good at and what i’m terrible at (or if you wanna sound polite, things i could improve upon)
this isn’t really anything new to me. it just reminds me of the days in grade school physical education in which i was really good at running for long durations of time and lifting weights, but terrible at anything that involved me being able to aim or balance, which was essentially any time we ever played a game. but that’s a story that no one really cares to hear about.
something else i’m really enjoying is the yoga and strength exercises. in my previous experience, whenever i’d try to take yoga instruction of any kind, it’d pretty much always be in a group with the instructor in the front and everyone spread out around the floor.
the only issue being that i didn’t have any clue what i was doing and would become REALLY frustrated when i didn’t get something right or by the time i figured it out, we’d already moved on to the next thing. with the game, i can more or less figure out what the hell i’m doing, then retry when i’m actually at least somewhat confident in my moves. its very nice and is already a huge plus for me.
even after a day of doing some of the yoga exercises, i can feel the difference and find myself being able to bend in ways i didn’t even know i could bend.
so yeah. not bad for a first day. tomorrow i’ll be out and about a bit, so it’ll be a good time to see how well the little fit meter works, and i’ll probably look into doing more of the yoga stretches.
its like this blog just knows what my dreams are.
Get the wii fit meter! I’ve actually been losing weight with this setup :)
i did actually. cause that’s how you get the whole game. i actually got a used balance board and the meter for about $30 altogether, so i figure that’s pretty worth it in all honesty.
wii fit u don’t fuck around.
because i feel like complete shit about my body lately, and with the recent weather, i can’t work outside withour freezing my ass off.
as for a gym membership, my biggest issues with it are
1. pricy as fuck
2. really shitty contract obligations that i don’t want to have to deal with
3. i’m extremely anti-social and really don’t like working out in front of other people at all.
so instead, i’ll stay in with my robotic personal trainer to see if i can lose some weight as well as stop being such an uncoordinated fuck.
in two months time, i’ll share a before and after photo to see if it did anything.
one can hope at least.
Man who needs Jake anyway.
