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.

Proof I’m Not Pulling Your Leg

Weight: 229.7
WiiFit Age: 30

It occurred to me that you might be wondering if all I’m telling you is real, that maybe this is one of those fake weight loss blogs. So, I thought I’d share with you photos of my WiiFit screens from this morning’s workout.

I’m still not feeling all that great today, so I just did a 24-minute walk around the neighborhood and tanked on most of my WiiFit exercises. So my WiiFit age is higher than normal (click on the images below to see a larger view):
