I kept putting it off and putting it off, saying, "Oh, I'll start tomorrow" or "Oh, I'll start next Monday," and it just kept on not happening, so today I said, "Fuck this shit," and started. This despite the fact I walked to the station from work (it takes an hour) and I was sneezing my brains out all day and feel, in general, like ass. I bit the bullet and booted up the Wii.

I had a pleasant little surprise when my weight popped up--I had been feeling rather roundish lately, but not like I was gaining fat; just losing some muscle tone. I was terrified that I would have gained weight, but no--I'd actually lost quite a bit of weight. Some of it, yeah, is muscle, but considering all the walking I've been doing, I shouldn't be that surprised, but yeah--I've lost nearly 2 kilo (so about 4.4 pounds) in the last two months by basically just walking my ass off, and have lost around 6 kilo (13 pounds) since I started trying to get in better shape in October. Go, me.
I was also surprised by how much I had missed doing Wii Fit. Once I started everything up, it felt really, really familiar and comfortable. I think I just had to get off my butt to do it the first time, and now it'll start to be routine again.
...but as my numbers for today show, I am fully aware that I am not healthy and also have not pointedly worked out in over two months (as the game mournfully told me). After 15 minutes, I was like, "...yeah, I'm done for today." I went easy on myself exercise-wise, too: just 10 jackknifes (OWWIE) and three minutes on the hula-hoop game, and the step game made me kind of tired. I need to ease back in, but I will.
I have a new goal (I need tangible goals), which is to not look as much like a chubby schlep by the time I move around the middle of April. I'd like to get under 79 kilo/175 pounds, which will put me at a net loss of 10 kilo/20-odd pounds, and will get me halfway to the "normal" BMI range. I still laugh in the game's face when it suggests my goal should be 65.1 kilo, because that will never happen unless I stop eating, and I like food. XD;;; Still, my longish-term goal is to get to around 70 kilo/155 pounds, and as it is, I put it in the nebulous "And while I'm dreaming, I'd like a pony" place. XD;;;
Once I hit my very modest "look less dumpy" goal, my next one is "be able to fit into a yukata this year for summer and not be terrified of a wardrobe malfunction." I think the small, concrete, two-month long goal works for me.
Heh, bet y'all didn't think you'd see this again?
