Wii want to play??
Thursday, January 03, 2008
So I did something brave, interesting, (and possibly even a tad bit on the stupid side) tonight. I paid $70 for a video game...I ordered Dance Dance Revolution for our new Wii.
Why, you ask? Do I have a deep hidden desire to be on Dancing with the Stars? Hardly...if anything I have 2 left feet. What intrigues me the most about this game (aside from the astonishing price tag) is the WORKOUT & EXERCISE possibilities. If I pull the blinds, and close the curtains...no one will know what I'm doing or how poorly I'm doing it. It won't matter how bad I am, how much I can't dance, or that I resemble a one-legged pregnant giraffe on booze. What WILL matter is that I'll be getting UP, being ACTIVE, and getting some much-needed exercise. I'm especially interested in the workout mode. :-)
While I don't think this is the answer to my workout woes, I DO think it is a step in the right direction. I have a love/hate relationship with exercise--I hate to be hot, and I hate to sweat, and I get bored easily. I've tried walking, the treadmill, the gazelle, a gym, walking the dog, riding my bike...you name it, I get tired easily and bored quickly. My hopes is that this FUN game will get me up & moving, and that is the biggest hurdle for me in the exercise "game."
