Exercise can be fun!

Phew, I've just finished a gruelling 45 minute tennis match!! I haven't done so much exercise in years! You may be wondering how I managed to play tennis in the dark - I did it in my living room. No I don't live in a huge mansion with a lounge the size of a tennis court, I used the new Wii. Colin got it for us for Christmas and it is proving very popular. We got Wii Sports and Wii Fit with it and then we got Mario Kart and Tomb Raider as well. I haven't had a go at Mario yet, but Lara Croft is currently near the end of level 2.

The first time I tried the Wii Fit we were in hysterics, at one point I nearly passed out from lack of breath I was laughing so much. It told me my WiiFit age was 56 for a start! Then I tried a bit of skiing where you move from side to side on the Fit Board to make yourself turn left and right. I screamed and laughed the whole way down the hill!

There are lots of balance games, and aerobic things, yoga and stregth exercises on the WiiFit but I think I prefer the Sports where you can do tennis, bowling, baseball, golf and boxing. The boxing is brilliant cos you can beat the crap out of the other guy!

My Wii Fit age is currently 41.

That sounds like fun - nice to hear a personal review from someone I know. I think the boxing feature would come in handy some days, hahaha!

I hope you had a nice soak afterward. How do you feel today? ;~)
