Today, I was excited to get back to the Wii! I decided to start with Wii Fit. I did my body test and was surprised to see I was down 0.9 lbs since the last time I'd been on the Wii. I'll gladly take it! I wanted to do something that actually felt like exercise so I did the beginner step aerobics. I did fine, but after two times, I was feeling it and decided not to push it. I didn't want anymore overdoing it episodes like the one described in my last post.
I decided to try a few of the balance games. I was pleased to break a couple of my previous records. It made me feel good. Maybe these new hips will work out after all. Lest I leave a misimpression, it was a mixed bag. Some of the games, I didn't do so well on. I 'fell' on my first ski jump. It didn't bother me. It takes a bit to get back into the rhythm of the Wii.
After about 15 or 20 minutes though, I was really feeling it and decided that was enough of Wii Fit and moved on to Wii Sports. I really wanted to get 45 minutes of work out done today. Talk about getting out of shape. I was beat by a lesser ranked tennis opponent. So, I decided to play baseball. My family got beat, but not stomped. I switched to bowling. I did fine with that. Of course, it is hard to lose at bowling!
All in all, it was, in my mind, a good first effort. Tomorrow I am back to therapy. I am on an indefinite every other day regimen. Wednesday, I'll dabble in another workout. I may drag out my Leslie Sansone and see how many miles I can get in. For now, I'm just getting benchmarks. I'll report back as to how that goes.
