Fitness Friday ~ Feeling Frumpy


When I got the Wii fit I was so excited. I was ready to to rid myself of this weight for once and all. I wanted to be that beautiful skinny momma that you see dropping her kids off at the soccer field. Ok, you got me there. I would never be one of those moms. I am just not that type of person but you know what I mean. I did so well for two weeks. I was exercising, playing all the games, running in place, doing my body test and stamping my calendar every week. THEN…….

I got sick. And it felt like I hit a brick wall. I was at a complete stop. I did not want to even look at the Wii fit much less step up on it for it to tell me oooohhhh, great, or measuring. Now how weird is that. It is not like the Wii fit made me sick, it is not like the Wii was to blame. The sicker I got the worse I disliked the Wii. Once I started getting better I still could not get on the Wii. I felt frumpy. I no longer liked my Wii fit but why. What was wrong with me? Why was I feeling this way? What did my Wii ever do to me?

It took me a long time to get to those answers. I first thought about it then I started chatting with my Weight sponsor, (that is what I call her). I told her what was going on. We discussed how my week had went. And as she talked to me I realized I had done so much with the Wii Fit in the little time I had it that I was bored with the Wii fit. That was my problem.

What would of happened if I did not have my sponsor? Would I have ended up giving up that easy? I feel it is so important that you have someone to talk to, about what you are going through. Someone who is going through what you are going through or has gone through what you are going through. I found a great group of ladies at Wii Mommies Forum that I often turn to for support. But more important I believe you need to find a sponsor, accountability partner or just someone to talk to. There are times when you will feel down in the dumps, feel like you just can’t do it. Times where you just need someone to talk to. Someone to listen to you and tell you get your rear back up there and work out. Put down the brownie. It is not worth it.
