16 Days of New Things ~ Day 5

Almost forgot to post a new thing for today. LOL. I have been so busy with learning my "new thing" but I guess I should share with everyone in my "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.


  1. That's absolutely true about working out while you're pregnant. It's a great thing to work out while you're pregnant. However, if you've never worked out before, you don't want to START a strenuos workout program while pregnant.

    Is the Wii Fit really like exercise? I have been hearing some conflicting info on that.


  2. That is so wonderful! I look forward to reading your blog posts!

  3. The Wii Fit is amazingly like exercising (if done correctly). You could always cheat yourself out and not really work at the exercises or games. My hubs even found a way to cheat on a few of them using the directional pad. But I like to actually do the yoga poses and strength exercises the way you are supposed to, and they do really work you out. Certain ones I still can't do because my belly is getting bigger, but the ones I can still feel the burn.
