Apparently … I don’t got rhythm

Weight: 228.0lbs
WiiFit Age: 40

You may notice that I’ve lost 3.3lbs since yesterday. Trust me … you don’t want to do it the way I did.

My IBS flared up and I pretty much emptied my colon. Still not feeling so good, but I think the worst is over.

You may also notice that my WiiFit Age is much closer to my real age than usual. This is in part to the new tests that come with the WiiFit Plus — in addition to testing your physical balance, they also test your mental acuity. Today, I had to compare a number to another. If it was larger, I was supposed to squat. At first, no problem. Then they started covering the numbers so I had to remember what was there before. Ack! I was not prepared for that at 7am in the morning!

So, I think there is going to be a learning curve with the new system.

A case in point. One of the new exercises included in the WiiFit Plus is Rhythm Kung Fu. It doesn’t show you all the moves before getting started, so it took me several tries before I figured out one of them was two-hand punch. I kept missing it and a ceramic pot would land on my avatar’s head.

After several attempts, I’m now able to get through the game without the pot landing on my head and I’ve finally unlocked the Advanced version. But I’m not going to try it until I can raise my score on the Beginner version.
