It's tough out there in Wii Fit land!

Typing this post is proving quite difficult. My shoulders, arms and stomach ache. Muscles that haven't been used since I found out I was pregnant with my son some 2 years ago, have suddenly been put back into action, dragged kicking and screaming into motion. Why? I've finally set up my Wii Fit! As part of the set up I was able to create my own little avatar; I've called her, obviously,  'Nic'. So of course I took the opportunity to re invent myself in the virtual world of Wii Fit land. Avatar Nic has beautiful deep green eyes (forget plain old Hazel!), lovely glossy dark brown hair (no frizzy, grey mess there!), beautifully shaped eyebrows (fortunately no plucking or waxing required in Wii Fit land...what a dream!) and a pert nose (nothing better than a bit of cheap, pain free cosmetic surgery I say!). Avatar Nic also has a very hunky male personal trainer in Wii Fit land, affectionately named Brad. Sadly though, Avatar Nic is a little depressed. You see the standards in Wii Fit land are quite high. According to the Wii Fit body test, Avatar Nic is classified as...obese! Ouch! Granted, Avatar Nic is currently wearing an Australian size 16 (US size 12) and does have about 25kgs (55 lbs) to lose, but come on!!!! Does this qualify as obese?

So after Avatar Nic had cried into her wine for the evening, she decided it wasn't such a bad situation. Afterall, she had Brad to exercise with and thus decided that Wii Fit land could 'bring it on'. Fast forward to a jog through the virtual park, some push ups, lunges, and a hula hoop challenge later, and Avatar Nic is in need of a soak in some bath salts and a goldfish bowl sized glass of wine! But shhhh, don't tell Brad about the wine!

Updates on Avatar Nic's progress to follow over the coming months so watch this space!

  2. Hi Diane,

    I'm with you on that one! There's some fun exercises on it though which makes it a bit easier to stick to. Good luck with the Wii Fit!..Nic
