Wii woes

This whole Wii Fit gig is harder then I thought.  My first problem is the weigh-in.  Apparently my weight can shift plus of minus 5 pounds with ease.  It is very hard to figure out if I am loosing weight.  I would have to weigh myself at the same time every night wearing the same clothes to get an accurate reading.  This is hard to do.  Sometimes I can get my workout done before dinner and sometimes I have to wait until after.  This means that sometimes I haven’t eaten since noon and other times I have eaten an hour or two before.  So that is my first dilemma.  My weigh-ins have been going up and down like a yo-yo.

Second problem is drive.  It is hard to keep myself doing this.  Last week I missed working out on Friday.  We had dinner at a friend’s house and didn’t get home until late.  I did work out Sunday evening to make up for it but still I had already missed the goal I had set for myself.  This week was not good.  Tuesday I was busy cooking dinner and they DMing our weekly D&D session so it wasn’t until 11:00pm I had stuff cleaned up.  So I missed it Tuesday.  Wednesday I had ample opportunity to work out, I just didn’t do it.  I just couldn’t motivate myself.  I did get back on the horse last night though.  I really didn’t want to.  I felt very discouraged.  I do have to say I feel better today knowing that I did it.  My abs would tell you otherwise but I do feel good.

I know the workouts I am doing are not really intense or require too much effort but it is just so easy to sit on the couch and watch one more show.  While the idea of using a video game to train with is good, it can get boring.  I think that may be part of my problem with exercise in general.  I find it all very boring.  It isn’t fun for me.  I was hoping this would make it more fun but it really hasn’t grabbed me.  I am going to continue with this as I know I need the exercise but it is a struggle.  I hope something clicks with me and I start to look forward to it instead of dreading it.  If anyone has pointers or comments please post.
