Wii Wii Monsieur & a Giveaway!!

One of the things
that I promised myself
I would do this year
was move more

get off the couch
and move

what I said and
what I have done so far this year
are unfortunately not
one in the same

I have been looking for
the right fit

I love to walk
but the cold - not so much

I could buy a treadmill
but then where to put it?

so we decided on a purchase
we were going to get a Wii


so after the decision was made
they were sold out
EVERYWHERE!!!

can I not catch a break??

fast forward to yesterday
a shipment came in
at Wal-Mart

so after work
I race over
and they still had some

insert happy dance here

I also bought this


I think I burned more calories last night
from laughing

we had a blast
and did I say laugh??

I am looking forward to a scheduled
exercise session now
.

Now for the giveaway

A dear sweet friend of mine
celebrated her birthday yesterday

and so we can participate in the fun
she is having a giveaway

After 10 years of being on line friends
I finally got to meet her last year

she is one of the sweetest people you know
so head on over and say hi to her
here...

it will be worth the trip
because she is giving away a print
and a gift certificate
by this lovely lady


so run ~ don't walk
and good luck to you!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday...

Good for you Lori! Let me know how it goes - we don't have the Wii fit system but have heard great things about it~

I have heard great things too, my SIL loves hers and uses it daily AND has lost 17 pounds since Christmas. I need to get one I think.

A few of my friends LOVE their Wii's and have been trying to talk me into it...I love the good old fashioned outdoor walking (do you think I have done alot of that though?)maybe the Wii is the way to go!! My daughters birthday is coming up (I could disguise it as a gift for her and then borrow it...hmmmmm...haha...)Have a fabulous day my lovely friend! xxoo :)

We have the Wii, but not the Wii fit. Either way you work up quite a sweat. Can't wait to see how it works for you:)

Good for you! I got the Wii Active and I love it. I want to get the upgrade one but that would mean having to move off the couch, go to the store......

Hi Lori,
I think that the Wii fit is a great addition to your repetoire. ..especially in the winter.
A great idea and fun as well. XXXX
