Advice to start your year off with


When playing Wii
Knowing you are not in your prime Wii shape
Go slowly.


DO NOT box !
Don't do it.

You ARE NOT
Laila Ali.



It is also wise NOT to take out any pent up aggression against your spouse using the Wii boxing game. Because you end up only hurting yourself.

Although, this may seem obvious - do NOT golf, play tennis as though you are Maritna, bowl, and box in the same night, or you will find yourself in a world of hurt the next day.

I am propping my lame, shaking, hurting right arm up just to send this bit of advice for you. My service to you. You can thank me later with a shoulder/back massage.


p.s. if you think I am alone in this - you are so very wrong. There is a whole website related to Wii related injuries. I guess I am lucky that I only hurt myself!!!!!

Last year one of my massage clients came to me complaining of "wii arm". I thought she was kidding, but apparently not!

Youngest son had sore shoulder from too much sword fighting!

Another tip from a very competitive house full of boys: Your Mii cannot be you. You have to make someone up. That way, when one wins or loses, it is not so personal...

Can't wait for school to start when the ongoing tournament will end (and I will get to start my personal fitness!)

Luckily the Wii is not ours - our company brought it with them.

A man at work, probably age 50 or so, threw his back out bad with it.
Take it slow.

I remember the Wii balance board games put my fatass in bed for at least 24 hours

for me it was the bowling. and a strangely pulled muscle in my ass that prevented me from going up the stairs properly for about a week....

I was so excited to play that I did a few games of bowling and then sampled all the other games on that disc. My body was not so thankful the next day. Or the day after that.
