Length of time spent on the Wii Fit doing sweat-inducing, energy-sapping, back-breaking exercise:
Total calories burned:
Um…what? I specifically ate three times my normal dinner portion because I was under the impression that I could come home, work my saggy, dimply butt off on the Wii and all will balance out. Clearly, something went wrong.
Also clearly – I did not work out the calories contained within my meal before I ordered it and certainly not while I was ramming it into my gourd and definitely not afterwards when I was eyeballing the dessert menu, forgoing a delicious looking apple crisp with ice cream (which would have added an additional 1143 calories to the tally) only because we had to get home to pick up the girls.
I don’t think I’m doing this “getting in shape” thing right.
