My Piggy... oh no!!!

Monday, November 11, 2013

I am SO bummed...
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Our Wii has died...

In all fairness, it has worked quite hard. It was an early generation one and we've had it for MANY years. All of us use it - DH, DD and me. I love the Wii Fit! The balance games helped me a lot. My DH and I get in to some pretty wicked competitions over the boxing which can be quite the workout! So, I can really be too angry with it. It had a good and useful life...

What I'm bummed about is the loss of my piggy!

If you aren't familiar with it, Wii Fit has this piggy bank. It quite literally looks like a pig. This little piggy bank keeps track of all your fitness minutes. You can see it running on the treadmill in the background. LOL! Anyway, it starts out white. As you accumulate minutes, it will change to bronze (kinda looks pink), then silver and finally gold. It takes some time to do it too. I was quite proud of my gold piggy!

Well, now I've got to do it all again. LOL! Isn't it too funny how much something so silly and small can motivate?

Bye, bye piggy! I can't wait to earn my new one!

    I'm kinda lost--never got into Wii, but I'm assuming it's something you can ask for -- for Christmas maybe?

    RIP piggy.
Great motivation to start a new challenge and I know EXACTLY how you feel. I'd reached max points on Sparks and occidentally deleted my account a couple of years back so had to earn the trophies and fitness minutes ALL OVER AGAIN and !'d got over 150,000 fitness minutes emoticon emoticon

    Awww, Poor piggy. May he rest in peace.
Now its time to start all over again. emoticon

I'm getting an Xbox 360 at tax time. Video games are some great workouts. A lot different from the old Ataris. emoticon

    It sounds like your piggy went to market instead of staying home lol (couldn't resist!)

Good luck with piggy #2

    Oh poor Piggy. I guess he was all tuckered out and went to bathe in a mud hole. LOL Here's to the next golden porkster!

    I would be devastated if I lost my Piggy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is great motivation though to turn it gold again. Have fun wracking up those fitness minutes.

    That is so, the way to do it. We have to grab all the motivation we can from anywhere and how lucky for you that you get to do it over again!
