I just had the BEST workout of my life. It was bad ass. And you're SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO going to laugh at me when I tell you what I did. I was playing a video game. Not just any video game. I was boxing on my new Wii. My arms were punching at my opponent. This thing is so bad ass. In addition to boxing, I played tennis, golf, and baseball. By far, my favorite is boxing. It was pretty realistic, minus getting punched in the face! I am so excited to have this Wii. It really takes video gaming to the next level with the interaction. I'm not sure if all video games on the Wii has physical interaction or if some are like all others where the only thing required is to have your bum planted firmly on the couch. I read today that Wii Fit is coming out in May and there will be things associated with it like Yoga. How cool is that? Getting in shape to a video game! I'm also stoked about getting Lego Star Wars because I heard you move the remote around for your light saber. That's SOOOOOOOOOOO cool! Now you might think I am insane. Let me tell you, for the most part I hate video games. I really haven't played these things since the days of Mario Brothers, like 18 years ago. I did play Halo on X Box and X Box 360, but I was by far from an avid player. I really think I can get hooked on this Wii though. And it's not because the games are interesting. It's because I was working my butt off trying to knock my opponent out...which btw, I got THREE knock outs!!! May arms are seriously burning from this! Laugh laugh laugh all you want. I think everyone should get one of these things.
