Who Says Exercise Can't Be Fun?


Did the title of this post get your attention??? I thought it might.
Many of you know, I have been walking on the treadmill very faithfully for over 2 years now. It has been great for me, but the time has come to add something else, since my weight won't budge any longer.
My mom & my aunt both have a Wii Fit & have told me how much they enjoy it. (especially my aunt) I have wanted to try it for a long time, but haven't had the money. Well, we got our tax returns this week & my husband said if I would like to get it, to get it. So...we did!!!
I am loving trying the new fitness routines & the games....games that DO work your muscles...wow...
Ok, off the exercise topic and onto stitching. Yes, I am still stitching!!!
Last week, I did a small piece for a recipe book for a bride to be. I forgot to take a picture of the finished project before I wrapped it & gave it to her. She is suppose to be getting me a picture & I will post it at that time. It was finish #9 for the year.
Once that was finished, I pulled out the April LHN sampler & I have been working on it since. I am happy to report that I finished it today. This one honestly has been my least favorite so far. I am not sure why. This was finish #7 of the 15 new project challenge & #10 for the year, so far.
Also this week, I kitted up a couple more projects..with the exception of a few things for each... I need to get to an LNS!!
Thank you all for visiting & I hope to build my blog back up now that I was so slack the past month...

This is adorable Shari. I love the colors. I guess we'll be trading the snow for April showers soon.

Wow, you're moving right along with all of your stitching.

The WiiFit is great. I've had one for about a year. It was a gift for my kids but I use it more than they do. Have fun!
Happy Stitching AND Exercising :)

*HUGS*

Congrats on finish 10! Woohoo!

As for exercise - too bad there isn't something out there that let us exercise and stitch at the same time! Have fun with your new toy!

I used to exercise on the treadmill but developed a pulled nerve in my foot... I can't spell what I had. I had to give it up and take up walking or riding a bike instead. Love ur stitching! Have fun with your WiiF!

Good for you trying the Wii Fit, Shari! My sons have the original Wii and I tried the yoga program on it once--so embarrassing! My balance was horrid--they were all laughing at me! Knowing me, I probably couldn't figure out how to turn it on by myself :(

Darling LHN finish and with the umbrella and little birds it certainly portrays April well! You're sure getting a lot of finishes in this year, Shari--you go girl :)

Wow - to have had three little ones with you as long as you did and still have all these finishes and PHD's to report....you're my new hero! It all looks great!

Congrats on another lovely finish, Shari. I wonder how are you going to finish this monthly blocks?

It sounds like you are doing great with the Wii.

You are really making great progress on all those new starts for the year! Congrats on getting the Wifit and using it! We borrowed a Wi for a year and never got it out of the closet! I do need to start walking the dog (weather permitting). I can see the extra weight on both of us!! LOL
