Poor Mr M had to put up with my mood most foul yesterday. You see, my stenciling success earlier in the year turned into abject failure yesterday afternoon leaving me with two ruined baby grows, fuchsia pink fingertips and a whole lot of grump - oh, and swearing. Lots of swearing. I really am an AWFUL perfectionist but only if it's Right First Time. Otherwise there is unhappiness. And sulking.
But all is fine. Because we've now got a Wii. And it's a great way to work off some grump!
VERY expensive exercise classes when you did the Maths. £160 swim anyone? I walk everywhere, but it's not exactly a slog.
So, this purchase is very exciting and all the more so for our thriftiness in obtaining it. Obviously, it is still the honeymoon period for said new toy, but I've managed to put in 30 minutes of daily exercise since Mr M set it up on Saturday. It's surely only a matter of time before I'm asked to be a reserve for the ski jump, snowboard and hula hooping teams for the 2014 Winter Olympics.
And the BEST bit about Wii Fit? There is a section for your pets - so, Miss P has her own tortie Mii and is now tracking her weight. This sounds a little crazy but our Miss P has been on a calorie controlled diet since we got her in November as a result of her 'eating for 5' when she was in the rescue centre with her kittens and has to be regularly weighed by the vet. And now we can keep track of her weight in one place and not freak her out by trying to weigh her in the bathroom. Big wins all round.
