Okay... I've been so proud of myself for getting up to two hours at least three days a week. Then I did something really stupid. I started arguing with an inanimate object.

I hope to get my sidebar updated with my Wii Fit workout routine by the end of the week but for now, here's what I'm doing.

I start out with Balance games for my twenty-minute warm up.
5 rotations each:
Volley Ball
Slolam Ski
Ski Jump
Lazy River

By this time the arms, legs and neck/ shoulders have stretched out and I'm ready to move on to Aerobics.
5 rotations each:
Basic Step
Hula Hoop
Boxing (though I've since started 1 round at 3 min and 2 rounds at 6 min for the 15 min equiv.)
Advanced Step

For cool down I do 20 Minute Step. I start out at the low setting for the first 5 min, step up 1 level for the next 5, the top level for 10 then work my way in reverse.

I end with meditation until I can get all the way through - usually takes 4 or 5 sessions to get my body down to where it will completely relax and allow this.

Everything was working fine until my Wii control decided it didn't like boxing. I've checked the battery, the meter for battery life is fine... but for some reason the right control (actual Wii bar, not the num chuck) has decided it only wants to register the hit periodically.

So, my determination to make it register overpowered my common sense. In trying to force it to register I've managed to pull something between by shoulder blades. OTC muscle relaxers (that have always worked for my back issues) and my pleasant jetted tub are not working. Stretching it out isn't working.

So in about an hour I'm getting a 30-min Swedish massage. Whether the muscle gives up or not, I'll still feel like liquid when I get off the table. Here's hoping Amy Cecil at Serenity Balance Massage can get me back on the board!

Whatever it takes to keep me on this journey!
Blessings on your journey.
