Who Would Have Thought

Well, somebody sure was thinking.

I think the last couple of years I have been asleep when the New Year comes around and for the last couple of years I have just went through life or that year like in a daze.

Things came and went so quickly, like I was always running to keep up. Why? I will tell you why later in another post. For now, I will tell you what I did for New Years.

This New Year's I decided i wasn't going to fall asleep through the New Years. They say that whatever you are doing at New Years will be an indication of what the year is to bring.

Went over to a friends house and they had purchased the Wii for their kidos. This Wii program had all the fitness stuff on it. The program has bowling, tennis, golf, boxing and baseball. They had the bowling game on there. I love to bowl. I have been bowling since I can remember back when I was eleven or something. It was something my dad put me in so he would have an excuse to go drink at the bar inside the bowling alley. I became really pretty good.

So, I thought I would give it a go. Holy Cow! My freakin right arm is so sore that I could hardly do my workout this morning. My triceps were just screaming at me. I could not believe it.

I also tried the Tennis, because back in high school I played tennis too. Took me a few games to get the timing down, but I really did get a good little workout.

I am truly amazed at this concept. It is a great one in order to get our kidos up and moving. Now, I just have to figure out how to get one for myself. Hehehe.

Make it a family night, if you have several controls. It would be so much fun.

Hey, I've heard about those Wii things. Some senior friends of mine like the bowling also. I guess I'm going to have to get my grandson one - so I can play with it! lol
I hope you have a wonderful New Year.

Isn't the Wii system great for the whole family?

It is so important to have fun, I never like video game until the Wii came along :-) I love that it gets people moving around.

I haven't played this yet but sure would like to try it. I haven't heard anyone who didn't like playing it yet.
