Yesterday I did the unthinkable. I worked out on the Wii that I bought for "working out purposes" ! I chose a Male trainer (duh!) and set up my little lady (who has incredible hips) and went to work. Of course - I chose the LOW impact workout that was a total of - drummmmmmmrrrrooooolllllllllll - 22 minutes! And that my friends, included all of the instructional video time! Yep - I was setting myself up to burn some serious calories! (127 - enough to burn off 2 and 3/4 of the 7 Oreos I ate the night before)
I had the option to reduce my workout and thus reduce my calorie burn -which I thought about - but when I took out all the running - and my philosophy on running is: Only if I am being chased by a wild animal! And only if I am not ready to die! - I was only going to burn roughly 1/2 an Oreo. And that my friends was completely unacceptable.
So run I did - and my trainer kept telling me I was TOO SLOW that and the words TOO SLOW kept flashing across the top of the screen. My "lady lumps" got super sore.
Friends - I finished, well, not quite all of the workouts, but enough to burn one Oreo. And, well, its something right?
