Well, I've had the Xbox Kinect for 10 days now and I've worked out for 9 of them. I only missed one day because I was writing (on the last day of a deadline).
I still can't believe that I've been moving this much. I hate sweating, and normally stop any activity that makes me sweat, but at one point in a particularly sweaty game (I think it was the Dance Central demo) I paused the game, went into the bathroom, doused my entire head in cold water, put my wet hair in a ponytail, and returned to the game. It is so addicting!
Here are some of the latest embarrassing pictures that Kinect Adventures snaps...based on the pictures, I must have been playing the roller coaster type game (I can't remember the names). This game is particularly grueling if you're as big as I am because it has you crouching under some obstacles while in the next second you have to leap over another one...so you're squatting, leaping, dodging from side to side, sqautting, leaping...you get the picture.
I am going to rent games before I'd like to try them out before I buy them, and some, like Kinectimals, I'd like to see but probably will never buy as I don't have kids.
I'm really blown away by the technology in these games.
Another cool thing...I was given a month of free Netflix, so I've been watching movies in the evening while working on home made Christmas gifts. It's a lot of fun.
I'm having a hard time eating all of my calories, so I'd better stop now and go eat some breakfast.
Thanks for reading!
