The snow boarding was fun too. We haven't used it in a long time, though.

If I wasn't getting heckled by the peanut gallery, I might have found it more enjoyable. You can definitely break a sweat playing around on the Wii Fit. Between the movies the kid got for Christmas and the other Wii games, I really haven't been able to get near it as much as I wanted. I made it across the tightrope.

I've poked at this WiiFit since Christmas. I really haven't had a whole lot of time to devote to it. Little bit here and there. Kind of cute. Until.....

I spent 40 minutes with the yoga bitch from hell this morning and she chewed me up and spat me out. I'd only probably feel worse if I picked the male trainer.

Nobody heard that, right?

We've had the Wii Fit since it came out (last summer) and used it a lot for a couple weeks, then went away from it. Broke it back out during the holiday break and we're definintely getting back into it. Once you open some of the other stuff (like rythmic boxing and advanced step) there's some stuff in there that can certainly work up a sweat.

And after Wii Fit, I've been following it up with my son's Dance Dance Revolution game -- there's a major sweat-builder there. I'm sure I look like a major dork, but it's fun and a pretty good workout too.

Damien -- Wii Fit calculated your age and compares it with your height to calculate BMI. Nothing fancy about it. Problem I've found is that Wii Fit is pretty inaccurate with it's weight calculation. Last night, it weighed me at 180, when I know I'm in the mid-190s.

One of you guys has to take a video of yourself playing on one of these things and post it to youtube or something for the rest of us to laugh at. I would if I had one.

As soon as my wife gets in a mood, I'm sure she'll probably tape me, just so she can laugh at me whenever she wants.
