  • In: Health | WTF?
  • Comments Off on I have noticed something


Have you noticed that every once in awhile I start talking about getting healthy, and working out and shit? And then I stop for a bit?

Well, its annoying because it makes me seem really inconsistent and not really interested in it. I have a reason though.

Every time I start working out, I get sick. Last time it was some sort of virus that settled in my sinuses. This time, it’s a virus that settled in my sinuses again (seriously, yesterday, when I got up, I blew my nose and I went through half a box of Puffs. I think part of my brain came out) including my ears so I have the added benefit of vertigo.


For the last two weeks or so, Darren and I have been looking for a Wii Fit. This has proved to be a rather difficult endeavour as they’ve been sold out across Canada. One option was to order another Wii with the Fit – but that would take 3 weeks and then we’d have another Wii, which wii we don’t need. The result is a series of emails during the day with the subject line “Wii fail”.

Last week, I got a call from him at work:

Darren: We win!

Or is that “Wii win”? At any rate, the Wii Fit.

It’s helluva a lot of fun. The hooping program is great – which is something Christa was trying to get me to try for awhile (although she never updates her blog, so who knows what’s happening on that end). Like any video game, there are tricks to it, but it focuses on core strength and balance. And has a few aerobic programs (including a step program which is kind of silly, but good for a warmup).

This post shows the return of the “Battle of the Bulge” category – and this time it’ll be all-encompassing: more cooking at home, less ordering out, 5-10 servings of vegetables and fruits a day.

As a result, this also represents the return of the WTF System category (not to be confused with WTF? category). Although I can’t find that original post, the essence is it’s a derivative of the FlyLady system – the “Working Twosome FlyLady System”. It includes basic stuff like menu planning, daily small chores to keep the clutter under control.

Because currently my coffee table is a disaster area. You should have seen the kitchen earlier.

I have other reasons for doing this, however, not the least of which is that I’ve been off birth control for a couple of months. I figure, if we’re going to chance bringing another life into this world, then I should get my own life as it is now under control.
