Better fitness

On Saturday I joined a local fitness club.  I have been entertaining the idea of getting a membership to a fitness club for a while now, but when I started out looking for one, I didn’t want one of those professional performance places where its a bunch of hulk hogans running around and all that.  So I found a family oriented club and went to check it out on Saturday morning.  I was a little intimidated by the size of the place, but once the manager started showing me around, it was really quite nice.  Everyone was friendly and they offer a lot of cool programs that come as part of the membership.  It is a bit expensive, but my plan is to stick with the club for about a year, get myself in better shape and then try to get some equipment that I can use to maintain my fitness level at home.  I need to go at least 3 times a week which is going to be tough with my schedule.  I realize that if I am going to do this, its going to cost something besides money, and that is my family time.  I’m going to have to go at night twice a week and once on Saturday morning.

a wii easter egg

I got the bowling training easter egg trick to work last night. Liz and I both tried it, but I managed to get the gold medal and a new record score. Woo hoo!

a wii visit from the in-laws

Last night, Liz’s parents came over to spend the night with us. From the time we got done with dinner, until abotu 11pm last night, they were playing the wii. I find this humorous, but at first they were a little skeptacle; her dad wanted to try it out, but her mom wasn’t as interested at first. We did the bowling game on wii sports most of the night which is fun, because we used to bowl all the time. I watched her mom go from barely interested in the first game or two, to moving around and starting to get some strikes by her 3rd or 4th game. Then we played several 4 person rounds and by the end she was having a good time and saying she was going to beat us.

I gave up around 10:15 or somewhere around there to go get ready for bed. They stayed up later than that and played more games. By the time I was done I was a pro at the bowling game with over 1000 on the chart.

I tried to throw my ball into one of the neighboring lanes, but it just went straight to the gutter. I found out how to intentionally release the ball too soon and scare the mii’s behind you.
