Tennis Anyone?

Yesterday was the first day I tried out our new Wii. I didn't start the exercise program yet, I just played tennis. I'm not very good. I think I won 4 games. Not matches, games & I played a whole lot more than 4. It wasn't pretty but that was no surprise. The surprise is that I played for an hour! The time flew by! I can't figure out if that's a good or bad thing. Good that I was up & moving for an hour but bad that I wasn't cleaning house or something more important. I did learn a couple of things. 1. Shoes need to be worn while playing. Just as you wouldn't play real tennis barefooted, you shouldn't play Wii tennis barefooted. 2. This game really works the arm you're swinging with SOOO if you want both arms to have an equal workout you're going to have to play with your less dominant hand. Funny thing is, I didn't play a whole lot worse with my left hand than I did with my right. Today I played again. Another hour & then I did about 15 minutes of Boxing. WOW!!! Boxing is a real workout. My plan is to start the exercise program Sunday. I didn't want to start yesterday or today because I doubt that I have time to do it tomorrow or Saturday & I hate to start & then not do anything for days. Of course, after I start I may need days to recuperate from actually exercising. We shall see.

I hate to start on this again but it's cold. It's been 29 degrees the last couple of nights. I hate it. The only thing saving my mood is that it's been sunny. Remember how excited I was that Sunday is going to be sunny & 70?? Yeh, well it's going to be 71 but it's also going to be raining! What a bummer.

That's it for now.
