Wii have expired ...

I'm not even sure I can type this without laughing ...
nope, I can't ...
well, anyway - my 30 day Wii Personal Training Challenge ... has officially expired.
No, really? You think? Considering I started it at the end of December, 2009 and it is now May 10, 2010?

Sure, I'll state the obvious, what the heck ... that's more than 30 days. Yes. I. know.

So I inserted the disc into the Wii this morning. The Wii has been relocated, just one of the countless reasons (legitimate and otherwise) that I have abandoned the Wii fitness challenge.

I inserted the disc - reluctantly ... after procrastinating for over an hour (drinking coffee, perusing facebook, even talked to my mom on the phone) - just didn't want to do it. I DID NOT want to go down that road again - fearing failure.

And then it hit me, "Lisa, you goof, you know you'll feel better - just do it for grins and a blog post (which you have also abandoned)." Spending most of the day alone tends to increase the amount one talks to oneself.

But then I couldn't find the Wii remotes ... and then I couldn't find the stupid leg strap ... and then I forgot my water, and then (after another 15 minutes of running up and down the stairs) I finally managed to click "A" to start.

I had to reset my goals (unfortunately, there was no 180 day challenge to complete 20 workouts). I had to fill in the daily journal (that was hilarious since yesterday was Mother's Day and I essentially "relaxed on the porch" the entire day - until I moved into the family room, where I relaxed on the sofa for the majority of the evening. Only pausing to do some laundry - because well, a day without laundry is just well, I don't know ... wrong somehow.

Where was I? The 30 day challenge. I slammed through that 1st day ... nailed it ... ok, well, sort of -I selected low intensity (didn't want to raise the bar too high, you know). I didn't even pause to re-watch the instruction videos. I figured that my body would remember how to do squats. I was right.

So, I'm Wii-starting the challenge. Let that be a lesson ... in what I don't know yet, but I'll think of something. It's 20 workouts... seriously, I think I can do this in 30 days. I managed to do 28 in 60 days ... surely, surely ... oh, and I've also decided to train for another marathon.

Dreaming big in Legoland ....
