A Not So Lazy Day

Yesterday was lazy.

Today not so much.

Oh, we're still hanging around home, doing a little housework, like laundry and dishes and such.

And we still have the TV on.

But the difference today is that I got at least two of the Wii remotes to sync (our Wii is pretty old; I got it when Lizzy was a tiny thing, and she's now seven and a half. That's a long time in the life of a video game platform). One of those remotes I got synced is the Wii Fit Balance Board.

I am the Hula Hoop Champion, and I also have the best score in Ski Jump.

Lizzy is not terribly coordinated; she has trouble getting arms (or fingers) and legs moving in concert, and we have to keep reminding her not to actually jump on the Balance Board.. However, even as much of a whirling dervish that she is, she's actually quite good at several of the Yoga poses.

Abby is the best of us in everything except the aforementioned, but prefers Rhythm Kung Fu and and Rhythm Parade (where you get to be the drum major and twirl the baton - she has achieved the Advanced course where I am still on Basic).

We're none of us very fit (although Lizzy more than the rest) so even though we're exercising a lot here, we're playing it safe so as not to incur injury. The Wii suggests a break to rest and drink water every half hour, which seems reasonable. And what we're doing is taking turns, where each of us has three of the events while the others rest. So our muscles might be sore tomorrow, but not actually injured.
