It's not fair!

I feel like I'm being ripped off. I've been doing Wii Fit faithfully for 2 weeks. We walk the dogs for at least 30 minutes a day, sometimes more.....and I haven't lost an ounce. I'm trying to cut down on portions and really be careful about what I'm putting in my mouth but I haven't seen any progress. Not even one stinking ounce? I'm getting screwed by the Wii. Aunt Flo did come for her visit yesterday so maybe that has something to do with it but good gosh...could the scale throw me a bone?

On the other hand, I got up this morning to get ready for work and I knew I didn't have any clean/pressed slacks. I was just too lazy to get them ready. As I was blow drying my hair, I prayed, "Lord, please let those black slacks fit today. I don't have anything to wear and I need those pants to fit." They haven't fit in quite some time. Well, wouldn't you know it, today they fit. Tight, yes. But they're on and they're buckled and zipped. We'll see if I can breathe later today ;)

Day 9

So I'm on day 9 on Wii Fit. I can't believe that I'm actually sticking to it. I don't have to go very far, just into the living room. I can wear whatever I want, do it whenever I want, and watch TV, talk on the phone or whatever..... My point is, I have total control of my workout. I don't have to drive any where or worry about a place being open early or late. I really love it and I HATE working out! I'm hoping this sticks and I can get into a smaller size!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! We have had such an awesome day. The boys stayed busy playing basketball and their new video games. My husband and I have relaxed in front of the TV all day and even took a nap. We don't get to do that very often so it was a real treat. I love having some time of and actually taking advantage of being at home.

My New Year's resolution is to try to get into better shape. I'm not going to over commit myself because I know what my reality is when it comes to spare time. Between work and school, there's no way I can commit to going to a gym. My husband bought me Wii Fit a few days ago and I've been working out with it for the past 3 days. Today I'm sore but I really look forward to getting on it every day. I'm hoping to lose about 15-20 lbs.

Since I didn't post any pictures from Christmas, here they are. Happy 2009 to all!
