Erm, not that I’m saying I’m plus sized. Just if I was plus sized I would need an extra dollop of peace. With a side of Reese’s Cups.
So, a couple of months ago, we finally found a Wii Fit. It’s been like a consumer treasure hunt since Christmas trying to locate one of these bad boys. When I walked into the Electronics department at Walmart and found a Wii Fit just sitting on the shelf I snatched it up and had to restrain myself from breaking out in dance. It wouldn’t have been pretty, folks, security would have been called and I wouldn’t have been able to purchase my Wii Fit, it’s a good thing I walked calmly to the cashier.
We brought it home, set it up and for the next five days we faithfully worked out. And then we put it up and didn’t use it again until this week.
Why did we do this? I’m not sure. But I’m using it again, and with positive thinking, I shan’t punish myself but just let my girly cartoony fitness instructor punish me by kicking my butt.
Now, if you don’t own a Wii Fit, let me just explain a few things to you. First, you have to set up your Mii character for the Wii Fit. My Mii character started out all pretty and skinny. Then I got on the Balance Board and got my measurements taken. This is what my Wii Fit character looks like now:
Just slightly depressing. Also, I can only dream of having that perfect bangs-swooping-across-my-forehead look.
Even more depressing was when I was measured a few days ago after my month long fitness sabbatical, it showed I had gained five pounds. Sigh.
I blame our receptionist. I think she might be a secret agent for the Devil because she brought in a Sun Drop Cake and gave me the recipe. Here it is, because misery loves company and I want all of you to be Fatty McFattingtons, too.
SUN DROP CAKE
1 Box of Lemon Cake Mix
1 Box of Lemon Pudding Mix
3/4 Cup Oil
1 Can of Sun Drop
Whisk together cake mix and pudding mix. Then add eggs and oil. Stir and add one can of Sun Drop. Stir and pour into dark bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. If not done then bake for 5 minute intervals.
1 Cup of Powdered Sugar
3 Tbsp of Sun Drop
Mix powdered sugar and Sun Drop. If consistency is too runny, add tiny bit more powdered sugar. If too thick, add tiny bit more Sun Drop. When well mixed, pour over Sun Drop Cake.
Also, if you don’t have Sun Drop in your area, first: Thank God, because it’s an addictive substance that you’ll crave for nightly. Second, well, you’ll just not get to experience the joys of Sun Drop Cake and you’ll be left pining for this wicked concoction.
Anyways, back to the Wii Fit. One of the exciting things about using the Wii Fit is unlocking new exercises and levels of difficulty. One of my new aerobic exercises is hula hooping for six minutes. You might be thinking, Psh, that’s childs play, easy peasy mac and cheesy, 6 minutes is nothin. Well, scoffing thinker, you try it. Then come back and Psh me. Seriously, ouch. Last night I did it and opened up the 10 minute level. Tis now my goal to hula hoop for 10 minutes without having a heart attack. But the pain must go away first.
Excuse me, I must go wash some Tylenol down with some Sun Drop.
