Really I got nothing. Okay, that is not entirely true. Since last semester I basically stopped running, swimming and biking due to crazy anxiety with grad school (which thus lead to increased anxiety in grad school), I've decided to use the month of January to start slow and to just get back into shape and into a schedule! So mainly I've been jogging at the new indoor track at school, swimming a few laps and biking on the trainers at the gym. Nothing intense or extreme, and in fact, I doubt my tri training will ever be intense or extreme, I'm just not that kinda gal.
I've also discovered a yoga core flow class on Monday nights that I like!* I'm excited about getting back into yoga, as I found that the hours I spent at work and at my desk reading or writing papers lead me to have terrible posture. After a few classes I'm already feeling my back get stronger and my shoulders slouching less.
At the beginning of the month I was using our Wii Fit for some yoga and strength building, but let me tell you that little scale thingy is a jerk and does not help me stick to my resolution of confidence. If I haven't been on it in two days it chastises me with "where you been? too busy to work out I see?" If I do the body test and have gained .9 lbs because I drank lots of water it asks me to list the reasons for my weight gain. While I admit the games are fun and I do like doing the yoga poses, I refuse to do body tests anymore (even if it means I don't get the fun stamp on my weekly Wii calendar).
Does anyone else out there have a Wii Fit? What do you guys think?
