Wii EA Active workout

I got a song that may sound familiar to you and if you pretend I am not singing then it will be better for you in the long run.

“Here’s a little sorry I got to tell about 3 bad brothers you know so well. It started way back in history with @Momspective, @SuperJennBlogs and me Chris B (@DeNifty) …” If you don’t recognize the song then I will provide a link when I am done with my story of how this could have happened to me. Lets start from the beginning.

Random events that led to purchase of said EA Active:

  • I joined Twitter
  • I followed as many people as I could that were in Fort Mill/Charlotte Area
  • @Momspective happens to live in said area
  • read some Momspective blog and ended up at wiimommies.com
  • ended up following more interesting moms on twitter (strange but true)
  • went to a party on Memorial day (put on by @MrsJennyO) and chatted about all these #wiimoms and what they did even though I really didn’t know that much
  • wife heard me talking about this in a group of mothers (strange but true) and decided she wanted this for her birthday
  • I thought long and hard about being the “husband that gave his wife a wii game that was supposed to get her fit” for her birthday…seemed like one of those women test that they put men through
  • gave it to her on her birthday…I passed the test… it really was what she wanted

So there is the short version of how it came to sit in our family festivities room. I thought about actually doing the 30 day challenge and @SuperJennBlogs decided to encourage me to start or nag me to get the house painted. Well so I didn’t have to tell her that I didn’t do it yet another day, I went ahead and started the 30 day challenge at 11:30 PM. It’s now officially. I did it on #fitnessfriday.

Here’s what I thought about Day 1:

  • I feel stupid walking/running in place
  • I like punching targets
  • squats were awesome for getting form right but there wasn’t many of them compared to a Crossfit workout
  • I sweated a lot on the Medium setting
  • I like the fact that when your running someone tries to pass you…in my case it was an old man with a walker
  • the band included didn’t have much resistance so I used bands that we had from a previous workout set
  • the skate ramps were good for motivating me to stay in a squat position

All-in-all, I sweat therefore it was good. Tomorrow I am going to paint and do Day 2. Now for the song I referred to above.

  1. DUDE! You are hysterical!

    Glad you opted for following wife’s wishes and getting her the Active for her birthday…I can see how one would be a littler nervous…”man traps” do exist.

    Also so glad that you got on the Active! I’m persistent so its probably best for your image of me that you started NOW..instead of in two weeks after filling a twitter restraint for my incessant tweets (You SAID you wanted to do it!!)… know what I mean.

    Thanks for the link love! Heard you all are having a Ft Mill Tweet up…sounds like fun! If you weren’t..um…a million states away I’d be there knocking down @momspective ‘s door.

    Good luck with the house!

  2. Okay, we must Tweet up. I love that Jenn said she’d nag you because I totally believe she would. I want to meet all the cool Fort Mill tweeps we have around here! So effin’ cool!

  3. Love, love the story of how this happened!! Still cracking me up … you are a man “mommy-n-me” groupie … sooo great!;D
