I admit it.
I'm a fair weather walker. If it's scorching hot with no breeze, I'm not going out. You can't make me!
I had plans to walk with Lil' Sister again Friday night and she was bringing Ty-Ty with her because her hubby was working.
I decided that it was just too hot to subject lil' Ty-Ty to the heat. Aren't I the best Auntie ever?
Instead I grabbed a movie from Redbox (I love Redbox!), and headed over to Lil' Sister's house for a different type of workout.
Yep, a little Wii Sports action!
We started off with tennis but it wasn't pretty. For someone with little to no eye-hand coordination, I never got the swing of it (excuse the pun).
So we switched to boxing and I found my true calling. I jabbed, I cut, I swung. I was a natural. Lil' Sister wasn't too bad either.
It actually was a pretty good workout for our arms. Not sure we burned too many calories though!
After several knock-out rounds of boxing, we switched to Wii Carnival Games. I really enjoy the carnival games and we competed in some head-to-head games.
Can you tell it was exciting? Notice the dog...she couldn't stand it and had to close her eyes.
I should tell you Lil' Sister is really, really competitive. Me not so much. After besting her in the first few games, she got serious and kicked my butt!
However, I had the largest cheering section:
He was super-excited at his Auntie's total domination in the boxing ring!
After our vigorous workout, we rewarded ourselves with a true chick flick - Valentine's Day! Cute movie, nothing earth-shattering. Worth watching just to see if you can name all of the movie stars in it.
The best thing about playing Wii games (besides the company) was that I didn't snack the entire evening - that's helpful in terms of the slim down campaign!
Stay tuned...picking some toning exercises and doing them!
