As many of you know, I am trying to do my Wii fit whenever I can. I really enjoy it and am finding that I like Yoga. Since i have a saggy belly and poor posture, this is helping a lot!
Yesterday, I turned it on and decided to check the weight. To be honest, I'm not a genius at the controls so I wasn't paying all the much attention to my feet, I was trying to get things to work on the screen. I set it up and waited for the result. It came on and told me I had gained 6 pounds!!!!
I just about had palpitations. As my eyes are bugging out of my head I look down and Jenny, my very FAT cat, is SITTING ON THE BOARD!!! Her little tush is perched between my feet and she is looking at the screen too!!!
OMG!!! I just about died laughing!! I couldn't believe I hadn't seen her but what a relief to know it wasn't me!!!! Yes, I haven't been great but certainly not THAT bad!!!
Hope everyone has a great, healthy weekend!!!! Mine will be the first one in which both my children are not home and I have TWO dates with TWO different men!!!
Wish me luck!!!!!!

Here's the funny thing. I finally set up my Wii Fit. I haven't done much on it yet except a little yoga which I found very had but very rewarding. I'm going to try it every day. It will be helpful with my posture and core strength.
What's interesting is that it weighs you. Whey you step on the board it assesses your balance and weighs you. Yes it said I was overweight but it also said I was three pounds less than my scale said. Since my daughter just went to the Dr. I asked her to get on my scale and tell me if it was accurate. She said no, it was 3 lbs off.
So, what do I do? Do I take the new weight into consideration or do I stick with the old and keep going from there. The thing that concerns me the most is the change it will make in my BMI.
I love the idea that I weigh less than I thought but it doesn't change the way my clothes fit. That will only come from more weight loss and exercise, believe me, I know this.
Any thoughts on how I should proceed??? It's a bit confusing!

Wow this growing up stuff sure is hard! Not for them, for me!!!
I went to visit my son at camp yesterday. I always look forward to parents day because it seems such a long time away. My son looked taller and leaner than I've ever seen him. So handsome (yes, I'm a mom!!)
So, we are sitting eating a picnic lunch that I've brought. All his favorites including homemade chocolate chip cookies (I didn't even have one). We are sitting there talking and laughing and this cute little girl comes over. My son introduces her as "Alexa" and then excuses himself and she takes him to meet her parents!!
OMG, his first girlfriend!!! I knew this day would come but I'm less prepared than he. While we were sitting there several girls came by and hugged him and said what a great friend he was and offered him some of their mom's home cooking etc....
Finally, he turns to me and says, "Relax mom, I'm just very popular."
Yes, I could see that. My little boy (who is a head taller than me at 12 1/2) is growing up so fast. His girlfriend lives near us and they already have a movie date for when they return. Of course, he asked that his sister take them. I'm just to momish!
I think I'm still in shock!

I'm back from my hectic week in NYC with my daughter. It was nice to be in the city and not have to worry about the commute to work. I got to sleep an extra hour every day. That's a perk!!!
Watching my daughter getting up and dressed for work and just navigating the city every day was quite an eye opener. She is really maturing and I'm so proud of her. At 17, she has a really great head on her shoulders.
We did have a lot of fun too. She is very, VERY into designer clothes and such but I just can't afford them so..... we went to lots of consignment shops. It wasn't until the very last one we went to that we found GOLD!!! LOL - Her favorite designer is Juicy Couture. Very expensive stuff but at this place she got 5 different things of Juicy including a brand new pocketbook which she loves!!! I spent under $150. for all 5 combined!!!! Now that's a bargin!!! She's happy, mom's happy (and exhausted) and then it was off to dinner with old friends.
We went to see "A Chorus Line" on Broadway and it was wonderful. I had seen it when it first opened and didn't really like it but this time it was great. She enjoyed it too.
It's good to be home again and sleeping in my own bed. My greatest fear was the scale. Yes, I did gain. One pound. Yup, one little pound that could be anything (water, natural flux of weight, whatever). I'm so proud that I managed to really stay on target even if I wasn't able to count calories. Whew!! It was tough but I did it.
Oh, and the date wasn't to bad either.
