Operation Hot Chick - Week 2

The past week has been... interesting.

As you may recall (or not), last week I committed to working out with My Fitness Coach on Wii 6 times a week. My workouts on Sunday and Monday were decent.. and then on Tuesday, my Wii promptly decided to cease functioning.

Awesome.

So between my toddler force-feeding me fruit snacks and Cheeze-Its, pulling every bribe I could to get the kids to go to bed at night so I could work out, and then my wonderful offspring breaking the dang Wii.. I was starting to feel as if my kids were somehow conspiring against me to keep me chubby. Even in spite of the fact that Aidan is always asking me "When will you get back to like you used to be, when you were skinny?" He's such a flatterer, that one. And a real motivator to boot. I'm so lucky.

Well, my darling husband was kind enough to remind me that I can build my own workout video on FitnessMagazine.com (he works for Meredith, the company that publishes that and many other popular magazines). Brilliant! Then I can use our handy dandy projector and do the video just as I would my Wii game.

Wednesday I made my video. I haven't done the work out yet though.. actually I haven't even watched the whole thing, to tell the truth! I know. Shame on me.

Still, I've been more careful about what goes into my mouth over the past week, and have behaved myself pretty well... most of the time..

Weight loss goal: 30lb






Never fear, friends.. that same wonderful husband has purchased a Wii cleaning disc and has repaired our game console. We are back in business (dang it!). Now, all I have to do is get my game back from the friend I loaned it to.. In the meantime, I shall do some Wii Fit instead. Wish me luck..

If you want, you can send any of those evil chocolates to my address. I offer free temptation disposal services.

Seriously though...if you had the perseverance to kill 50k words at NaNoWriMo, 30lbs should be cake. Er. Rice cake, I mean.

I'll try to remember to bring it to you on Wednesday. I have a playdate in the morning, so I will stop by on my way home and, perhaps chat for a few minutes or, as we are known to do, hours...

I haven't even done to workout yet, or watched it, or even done my Wii Fit in a week +. So, no harm done. ;)

I've got no muscle tone, even if I am thin. Maybe I need a Wii

Good to hear you got your wii back! I have a friend who is using the wii and named her trainer 'wiibooty' because that is what she hopes she'll get if she uses it. That cracks me up.

You can do it - go CPM go!! And, NOT cool posting that picture of chocolates. I miss chocolate. :(

I am still in awe that you didn't go all evil psycho lunatic mommy on your kids for breaking the wii. I would have LOST IT.

Mama Dawg said...

Good luck!

Keely said...

Did you put that chocolate up there for my benefit?

No? You're just accidentally evil?

Tell Maya I say hi.

Sorry I bought the chocolates for you! But they were good... right?

My hot wife will meet and beat her goal. I will see to it ;-)

@Kat I am more likely to lose it, but because my hot and maternal wife has taught me to not break the kids (kidding) every time something breaks, I played it cool and just fixed it.
