30 minutes...

30 minutes on Wii fit (which I got the day it came out, a week and some change ago), and I'm like near death. They want me to do push ups! PUSH UPS!!! Set does not do push ups. I did them once to burn energy the day before school, and I ended up not being able to move my arms for like two and a half days. I suck at push ups. I suck at them. So I avoided them altogether.

I also suck at balance games. My god, my balance is bad. Actually, my balance is bad period. Seriously. The male trainer (he taunts me with his pretty digitalized body... I should have gone with the chick, at least then someone would have bigger breasts than me!) even was like 'we need to work on your left side.' Shut up, male trainer. Shut. Up. I won't be playing the balance games. After all, what good do they do, really? And Yoga? Helllllll no. Again, balance = bad. And room = small. Put them together and you've got disaster.

I do like the running part, kind of. I dislike not being able to run on the balance board, but, knowing me, I'd crush the bastard anyway. I also can't put the Wii mote in my pocket because it therefore lowers my sweats too much. Plus, I want to run into the waterfall, thank you very much. I unlocked the longer distance run. I think I would die if I did that tonight. I damn near died the second time. Stupid dog. Not my dogs, this dog in the route. I bet if I was running with the dogs in my room they would go crazy. When I played Nintendogs they were like 'who the hell are you talking to? Our name isn't Eris!' I didn't play Nintendogs much longer. They got too excited.

This is a really random entry that is going all over the place. The tangents are semi-linked, but even so... I blame delirium. I need water.

And I think it's meant to be used with bare feet. All the pictures on the box show it as such. Here's the thing: I hate feet. I hate my feet. I hate your feet. I don't want to look at bare feet. Sandals should be abolished, especially on people with hobbit feet. This includes myself. I don't wear sandals. I have some form of shame. So, I could slip and die on you, but I won't be slipping or dying on you without socks on, okay? And to be fair, socks keep the sweat from building up on the board. Who wants a sweaty board to work on? I know people who refuse to use sweaty mats. And those are cheap things. I paid 95 bucks for Wii-fit and its technological whatnot.

I want to do another 30 tomorrow, but odds are high that I'll just be like 'screw this!' and go back to eating McDonalds and sitting on my ass doing nothing. I walk a lot at work. And there's less drunken intrusion from my mother, who came in three times during today's workout. And don't even get me started on the dogs...

My house does not a good place for workouts make.

Incidentally, that new chicken sandwich they have is really good. Small. With little variety (chicken, bun, pickles. Yes, pickles... and no sauce of any kind!). But good.

WATER!

you're supposed to run on that thing? How can it be strong enough? What if an overweight person ran on it? I just can't imagine it's strong enough to survive that. Plus, isn't it hard to run in place like that? You're supposed to have a stride when you run.

Nonetheless, I want one!

Nope. You're not supposed to run on it. You're supposed to run using the Wii-mote (the controller), which registers your speed, or something. But yes, you're supposed to run in place. And it is hard. So hard.

well, running is hard and kinda sucks overall. I don't think fake dogs and waterfalls make it better!

What if you don't have a pocket? Most sweats/workout pants don't have pockets!

Obviously, it is seriously flawed ;)

You can hold it in your hand. I hold it in my hand when I do that one. My sweats do have pockets, but the weight of the wii-mote causes them to lower considerably, which is annoying.

Waterfalls, even fake ones, make EVERYTHING better!!!

the waterfall would just make me thirsty!

I was already plenty thirsty when I saw the waterfall for the first time...

It didn't really impact my thirst. But I'm not one of those 'see water, get thirsty or need to pee' people.

I am - the fountains at malls and mini golf courses always make me thirsty!

I have no illusions about actually losing weight with Wii Fit, but I plan to get it for fun's sake. Definitely agree with you about the sock thing, though -- I don't want anyone's sweaty feet on any new equipment I have. Maybe invest in a pair of those rubber grip-soled socks?

Also, my bad...I left your Wii Friend Code on my work computer so I still need to update my system with it. SOON

Now if only fuseji could find a copy of One Piece: Unlimited Adventure...
