Who gets sore from playing the Wii? Pff, that's ridiculous, right? Er...wait, that would be me.
Saturday McHotterson and I were visiting with his brother and sister-in-law and our nephews. They got a Wii for Christmas and because McH and I don't have one, we love to play theirs when we can.
We worked on the Wii Sports, playing all at least once, but by Saturday night we still hadn't tried boxing. I thought it might be fun and a good way to get my heartrate up, seeing how I'd spent most of the weekend up to that point either sitting in a car or sleeping.
I have to say, the boxing was so much fun! This is probably because I ended up SPANKIN' the McH, winning 5 out of the 6 matches we played. Yes, six people.
My best move was a mean right hook to his thigh that sent him to the mat on multiple occasions.
And now, I'm paying for my competitive nature. My right bicep and deltoid are SO sore that even today I'm still having problems getting dressed and writing on the board in my classroom among other simple tasks.
And it didn't help that yesterday was the "hard" toning class at aerobics (thank you very much, Amber), and we did a lot of work with our upper arms like push-ups and in the plank position.
Ironically, as I sit (or stand, or walk, or work, etc...) in pain, I'm thinking we just might have to invest in a Wii because I could have some seriously impressive arms by summer.
