Day 5 of '16 Days of New Things'
Today, DH and I picked up our layaway from KMart after making our last payment, and I am sure most of my Twitter friends know what was included. The Wii Fit!!
That's right. I now am the proud owner of a Wii Fit. So, even though we were supposed to wait and have it be a present from Santa to the family, I just couldn't. And SD is spending the long weekend with her grandma, so it was the perfect opportunity to bust into it.
As simple as some of the tasks would seem in your mind, once you are on the board it is hard to actually grasp your center of gravity accurately. You think, "Of course, I know what I'm doing..." blah blah blah. Oh let me tell you how wrong I was.
I am pretty much Pro at the Ski Jump and all Yoga positions. However the balance games are kicking my bootie like nothing else could.
Now some of you may be thinking, but aren't you pregnant? Why are you 'working out'?
Well, exercise is important for everyone, no matter what condition your body is in. Especially being diagnosed with Fibromayalgia, exercise is key to kicking the condition. Also, exercises like Yoga and the Balance Games will help me to strengthen, lengthen, and stretch my muscles and get ready for childbirth. Also, I do believe that someone once told me that if you consistently exercise during your pregnancy, then it is easier to get your body "back" after the baby is born.
So, what new thing did you do or learn today? Let us know in the comments below.
