There is no we in Wii

It's just you ... or more specifically, me ... my Mii ... who I created 5 months ago, got a makeover this morning. I changed her clothes, gave her a new ponytail, and a pair of Ray-Bans. My 7 year old son, popped in while I was on my last exercise, and said, "Mommy, you look different ... is that really you?"

"Of course it's me ... who else do you think it is?"

"But you look different."

"In a good way?" (I am doing alternating lunges while having this conversation. It is also important to note that last Saturday morning, while we were having breakfast, my son commented that he thought I should lose some body fat ... not a lot mind you, just a little - so he said, because he didn't think my stomach was as flat as it could be.)

"Well, I guess in a good way."

"Well, I guess almost two weeks of consistent exercise is paying off!"

"No, Mommy, your Mii."

"What? I am you?"

"No, your Wii Mii looks different."

"Oh. Thanks for noticing ..."

"Why did you change your outfit and do your hair differently?"

"She was sweaty. (as I completed the last lunge)"

"How do you know?"

"I just do."

"OK then, keep at it." And then he ran back upstairs.

So, no ... there is no "We/Wii" - it's just "Me/Mii". Isn't that the truth? I have completed 8 workouts in 11 days in this round of the 30 day challenge but hesitant to declare any type of victory - I've been at this point before ... and, we're going to the beach for a week ... Maybe one day, either my husband or son will join Mii again ... and Wii can be in this together ... but for now, I'm on Mii own.

I really wish you would stop working so hard. It's making me feel lazy.
