My legs are so sore...

So we got a Nintendo Wii between Christmas and New Year's.
Soon after that, we obtained a Wii Fit. We've been using it pretty much every day since we got it. Well, Colleen has, I've skipped a day here and there.

One thing I don't like about it is that it relies on the Body Mass Index, which is a load of horse$#!+, since it only takes height and weight into consideration, not muscle mass or bone mass. It has me above 30, which is the obese level. I'm 5'11"-ish and average at 215lb... that's not obese. Overweight, perhaps, but not obese.

You have four sets of exercises: Yoga, Strength, Aerobics and Balance. I start off with the Ski Jump in Balance. My record is like 328m (combined from two jumps). I do Ski Slalom as well, then get into Strength training, running five or six exercises there.
Then comes Yoga... Half Moon, Warrior, Chair, Palm Tree... only four or five exercises.
Right know, thanks to Lunge and Chair, I'm feeling it in my front thigh areas... so much that I haven't done my Fit stuff in a couple of days. Well, when you throw in pulling a nearly 50-lb child up a hill on a sled four or five times...

All in all, a good investment.
