No data for a few weeks … whatever will I do?

How do you like my Gold’s Gym avatar?
She has green hair … with matching shorts and gloves.
Although I’ve logged in my weight as 229, she still
looks better than I do. Oh, well. I’m getting there.

Yesterday I dropped off the WiiFit balance board at The UPS Store. There was a crack in it and we’re getting it replaced. So today I have no weight data. I’m still confident that in the weeks it will take to get our replacement, I’ll stay on track for losing 1 pound a week. But not having that daily data will be interesting.

So, since I couldn’t do any balance board exercises, I did my Gold’s Gym Cardio Workout for the Wii instead today. I really love boxing style workouts. They feel good.

Although, I think if I was actually hitting someone or something I might not feel that way.

And, I must admit that I’m glad I’m doing this in the comfort of my own home and not anywhere someone could be watching. I’m a tad less than graceful and have accidentally knocked myself in the face coming back to the guard position. Having my fists in front of my face does not feel natural. 🙂

Another thing I’ve been noticing lately is how I feel in my body. Since I started the I Create My Body program, it seems that I feel like my thin self more and more. This feeling leads to feeling good about myself in general. So it always seems like a shock when I see myself in the mirror (or a store camera system) and I don’t match my internal vision of myself.

But I’m holding onto that vision anyway, because I know that each day I am returning to that vision … I am becoming that vision. And that feels good.

We gave my wife Wii Fit for her birthday last year, and she’s really enjoyed it, although her usage of it comes and goes in phases. Unfortunately, I’m too heavy to use it, so I have to find other alternatives. Occasionally I’ve just done the exercises with her (particularly the step stuff).

Regarding the scale, you might want to let people know that there are a lot of high-capacity scales available now for home use. I got the MyWeigh XL-550, which has a 550-lb. capacity, on Amazon for about $50. It works great, looks nice.

Escali also has some super-stylish ones with a 440-lb. capacity. Some even have some cool features like body fat / body water monitoring, and they’re mostly around $50, too — all under $100.

Yes, I do sometimes forget that there are scales other than my balance board. In fact, I just brought over from the old place the really cool scale we got before the Wii. It’s a Taylor bodyfat scale. I haven’t unpacked it yet, but it should be ready to go for tomorrow’s weigh in. 😉
