Or is it Wiiiiiiiiiiiiii? :)

I've been wanting to get a Wii Fit for a long time now. And, after chatting with Jarrod about it yesterday while at Marine World (he just got one for his birthday), I decided it was time to finally bite the bullet and buy one (he had rave reviews, but the kicker for me was the price is now, finally, below $100 bucks!).

So, we did some serious damage at Costco today, grabbing a Wii Fit and a truckload of other must-haves. Logan passed out on the ride home, which was perfect because it gave Jon and I some time to link our Mii profiles and get started on our fitness regimen! My trainer claims I have a Wii Fit Age of 44 (ack!) while Jon's is at a mere 37. However, my BMI is in the "normal" range while his is in the "overweight" range. How does that work?

I blame my high Wii Fit Age on the fact that Logan woke up just as I was finally setting my own profile up, and thought it would be fun to stomp and play on the Wii Fit board alongside Mommy during her tests. It doesn't do so well for my balance score when I'm standing on one leg in Tree Pose, with a kid hanging off me. ;-)

And, we got the game just in time. Tomorrow I am scheduled for another series of injections. The chronic pain I deal with has really beaten me down lately, so I'm actually looking forward to this visit tomorrow.

In a couple of weeks, I will be so ready for the Wii Fit challenges.

Bring it Wii Trainer. I dare you.

The reason why jon's BMI says he is overweight is becuase BMI doesn't take muscle mass in to account. That's why BMI doesn't give you a good picture.

p.s I want one too!

Julie - that's exactly what Jon said too!! :)
