To be fit, or not to be

Yes, my blogging is down. It is because of something sinister!! Something that brings the worst out in me.......


My dang Wii Fit!



There I am, that's me in the light blue, I'm the Mii ready to go. All the others are sleeping except Aysha. Cause we are the only two that are constantly battling with the Wii Fit.


Just a close up of me

Here's a close up of Child Husband. For some reason Wii won't let you put in more than 8 or 9 charactors in for a Mii.

You know Wii Fit is EVIL because it doesn't sweet talk you.


Oh that is 3.1 pounds since yesterday!!!!


Evil Wii Fit then gave me a list of choices of why I'm gaining weight. I skipped the honest answers like "eating too much" and choose "I don't know".

There is no pulling the Wool over the eye's of Evil Wii Fit.

Now I was kicking some Sherrill butt on Wii Fit's Advance Step Aerobics, but then she passed me, which is good, makes me work harder at it. But for some EVIL reason, my Wii Fit is not recording all my side steps on it. Notice the gray area's on the bottom. Gray means I missed those steps. I didn't miss them and now every time I do it, it shows missed steps.
I will NEVER beat Sherrill if it keeps giving me misses and I think it is off on the "perfects" also, cause I'm pretty sure I've done this enought to be "perfect" on each step.

I spent this long doing the Advance Step Arerobics today and Sherrill is still way ahead of me!

One day I almost passed out doing this and had to lay down. I told Child Husband to make sure he dressed me if I stroked out. Oh wait, did I just admit to exercising with nothing on? hee hee
Good thing I can't make my Mii naked ain't it! Actually I do wear a tank and undies.


Evil Wii Fit even keeps track of how often it controls you.


I do like the fact that after working out for over an hour, EWF does make me lose some weight.

No it ain't just water weight, cause I drank water while working out. I swear I saw fat dripping off of me.


And a word out to my beautiful Brazilian Friend Karine. I know you probably tried to translate this post and didn't get far. But all you need to know is this......


Nintendo bad, very, very BAD!

OH I am soooo jealous! I want a wii fit so bad! Looks like you've been having fun AND losing weight! Woo hoo!

WheresMyAngels said...

Um no, not losing weight at all. By tomorrow it will go up more. But I'm getting where I can walk up stairs without holding my heart.

sheree said...

that is FREAKING hilarious! Maybe that's why I haven't gotten on my wii fit in MONTHS...it's too damn honest.

Does Anybody Hear Me said...

I love Wii fit, but Thing 1 hid it from me! He makes fun of me when I do it and then has to be a bigshot and show me 'how it's done'!

Yaya said...

Lucky!! I'm so jealous!

Hula's Secret Blog said...

Love those Mii's!

Kori said...

I want a wii fit. Been looking for one but haven't been successful in finding it. Guess everyone around here sold out at Christmas and haven't had a chance to restock.

Anyhow those Mii's are awesome. Love them.

Crazy Momma said...

I love it!

We don't have a Wii but Z and I have been doing a Tae Bo video every morning. Thank GOD it doesn't record "missed steps"...there are times that I just walk in place instead of kicking or lunging or whatever.

AND, I lost 5lbs last week!!

Casey's trio said...

You are getting more exercise than I am so good for you!!!

sassy stephanie said...

I think I've been on our twice since Christmas, b/c the kids hijack the Wii!

Kelsey said...

You are braver than I for posting the Wii Fit results lol. I want one badly. Hmm my brother's bday is in a few weeks, maybe I can convince my dad to buy one for him and then steal it for myself...

Karine Webster said...

oh my God, Gayla, I'm laughing, that's right, you guessed!! I could not understand anything HAHA you are great friend, and thanks for the "BEAUTIFUL FRIEND," I am not!, you are a beautiful and lovely person, but you are forgotten to say something to me ... where can I send a tapestry?!!! I think it will be ready in early March

this game should be fun

say hello to your girls!!!!
great week to your beautiful family

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

I can't tell you how many times I thought about doing a post just like this one!!!! hahahaha

I missed 5 days in a row and we were all sleeping as well. It's humorous!!

Great job on being consistent!!!

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

sorta trying to figure out what you're talking about here....

nicki mcfadden said...

OMG you are too funny! At least you are down in the pink, I'm still up in the red.

American in Norway said...

Sooo Funny. Wonder if you are missing steps because you are TAKING PICTURES while trying to step?

Fun! Now I am going to have to go check all of my scores to see where I rank with you.... (Can't you get on line & play against other people?)

Em said...

How did you unlock adv aerobics? Mine is so slow. :(

WheresMyAngels said...

America in Norway, you can somehow get on line to compete, I just haven't figured it all out yet. I'm planning to set that up though, so Sherrill and I can do it. so it would be fun to get some more people to complete.

Em, I think I only had to do the reg aerobics a few times to get it to unlock. I have everything pretty much unlocked except one of the running ones, cause I never do those.

WheresMyAngels said...

Oh and Gary, I'm sending you out an email!

Emily said...

I think I want one, but maybe I don't. Hmmm.... hard choice to decide. I think I will stick with my gym now (unless I find a sucker to get me one, say for like, maybe Valentine's day!!! :)

Lilly's Life said...

Oh my I was thinking about getting one till I read this. Looks a bit deadly for me. You are so funny by the way. Love the way you write!

latree said...

wow it sounds fun to me, not evil at all. but I guess she'd tell me I'm underweight and I'm soooo ready for that.
at least I agree with you about one thing: nintendo (and other video games) are bad. and I mean it. coz it's hard to control your self when you are into it...

amanda said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE it. we have an evil wii fit as well. i am trying hard to perfect the advanced step!! lol. i love this post. and i too am overweight with a fat mii. :0) here's to skinny mii's!!

JennyH said...

You are so funny! I just got wii fit a week ago today. I really like it. Hopefully it make mii a little fitter! Sam's wii (well one out of her 20 or so) looks like Aysha's- almost.

Celine said...

Your post totally cracked me up! LOL!
I have a WII fit and I feel the same way! It's too darn honest! hahahaha!

Kristi Smith said...

I have never played Wii Fit. I was going to suggest I come play with you and take photos because it would make a good blog entry . . . you playing in your tank and undies. ;)

Christie said...

I totally wanted this for Christmas. I still haven't bought it. It's been sold out everywhere.
If it's making you work then maybe I need to get myself some Evil Wii Fit!

Tinabean said...

Your making me rethink wanting one!
I think it's just what I need though, something or someone to be accountable to!

Michelle said...

LOL! My mom just bought Wii fit and they all tried to get me to create my own Wii and I said HELL NO!

Em said...

Awesome! I did just like you said and actually exercised. :) The advanced aerobics is a lot more fun than the basic ones.

Any idea how to set it up so that you can exercise while watching tv? Cant remember where I saw that.

Ronnica said...

This is hilarious. I've seen other bloggers talking about it, but the pictures are just the thing I need to laugh WITH you. I love that it really questions you about weight gain! I'm not sure I would like to know what it would say about me!

WheresMyAngels said...

Em, I have only seen one that does that and it is called Free Step I believe. You will have to unlock it and I wasn't that excited about it. But maybe if I used that feature I would be more.

Kari said...

Your so freakin funny. Your Mii actually does look like you LOL I love the Wii Fit!! The step class is my fav.
BTW how did you hook up online? Wire or wireless? I'm yet to hook up but someone said the wireless isn't any good.

Kari said...

I think you'd kick my ass! I almost died trying to kill Chanelle's top score Hoola hooping. I literally lay down on the floor beside the Wii board because the sofa 2 feet away was too far!

Heather said...

Gayla, you are so creative,imaginative and FUNNY. I totally want a Wii Fit now.

WheresMyAngels said...

Kari, I haven't hooked up to internet with it yet. Sherrill and I have just been leaving our scores at FIC. This weekend, I might try to figure it out. I have been reading instructions online.

Thanks Heather!

Michele said...

Now, that looks like some, good clean fun!

heathersister said...

That Mii looks just like you. I love it. And Childman. lol

Be careful. One day my dad and I were boxing on Wii Sports and we could barely make it through one round. He has COPD and couldn't breathe and my arms hurt for 2 days.

angie said...

I STILL really, really want it. Despite it's inherent evilness. :)

Rachael Giallongo said...

Oh my gosh, I SO need this!

Lisa Petrarca said...

Look at you go...I'm still at the staying up and eating at midnight faze. Okay...WII is now on my new wish list!

Something's got to get me off my lazy butt.

Go Gayla Go!

Kari said...

Well we should hook up and inspire one another! Do you have a web cam? Although I'm a little concerned by your nakedness LMAOOOOOO You will be clothed if we Wii Fit online together right?

Me said...

You're totally kicking the other Wii peoples butt

American in Norway said...

Where u been chic? Hope everything is OK

jewelstreet said...

I know this is old, but it's hilarious! I so want a Wii and a Wii fit. I have never gotten to see the closeups before. Thanks for that! It looks like such fun.

zanesmommy said...

First, thank you for your prayers. Thought I would see who you are. Funny that your Wii Fit problem is the same as mine! That thing is EVIL!

nikkicrumpet said...

LOL...I am now officially glad that the Wii's were gone when we went to best buy..and I couldn't wait so we got an XBOX360 instead. I sure hope they don't come up with an exercise game!!!

Jennifer P. said...

I am going out to buy wii fitness now----I need something to tell me I'm fat or I'd never know. Is there a check mark for 'Ben and Jerry are whores' ? :) That's a legit reason!

Lynette said...

I think I feel guilty now...I mean, I hardly ever use mine and really should:(

Kristi Mantoni said...

Wii Fit seems very evil...so why do I still want one?

Your post was great. I loved reading it.

PS - I hope your place doesn't have a ton of ice either!

Shannon @ Gabi's World said...

LOL! I love the Wii Step too. Currently my Mii is sleeping though.

But the real reason I am here is because I was referred to your blog from the T21 message board. I had asked about Robertsonian Translocation because I was contacted by a family who just received a diagnosis of their new little arrival. I am sending them a link in your direction in hopes that you can help them out. They are being given very grim prognosis of the abilities of this baby who hasn't even had the chance to prove herself in this world. I have a funny feeling that most of it is by poor or old knowledge on the end of the physicians caring for her. I wish I could have been more help to her, but my daughter has the typical Trisomy 21. So glad I was able to find someone else with more life experience in this area. Your girls are beautiful BTW.

Cristin said...

I want a Wii Fit so bad!! Hoping for a decent tax refund so I can buy one...
