Day Ten: The Lost Workout

My weight bounced up by a little less than a pound. It wasn’t significant enough to warrant a rebuke from the balance board. Despite the slight increase, it’s still lower than it was a couple of days ago.

The Wii Fit Age on the other hand has skyrocketed up to 37. I attribute this mostly to a really poor performance on the second agility test. It was the one where you have to lean left or right to avoid obstacles, and I failed on one of the early obstacles.

I was very confused to see that EA Sports Active thought that I had taken Wednesday off. I was equally confused when today’s workout turned out to be the same one I did on Wednesday.

As it turns out, it didn’t save Wednesday’s workout, so I had to do it again. I guess that if you turn off the game on the results screen it doesn’t bother saving. Boo! I was surprised that it doesn’t save as soon as you wrap up the workout. I imagine a lot of people have probably quit at the end of their session thinking that they’d be okay.

So I ended up having to do the squat jumps and jump lunges all over again. I found the squat jumps easier today, but the jump lunges were still frustrating. I think part of the problem is that the game asked me to do 20 regular lunges before transitioning to jump lunges. So my legs were already tired from holding the lunge position.

Nevertheless, the results were all right.

I also did the daily burn dumbell workout for chest and back. Since the last time was a little too easy, I increased the weight by 5 lbs. per arm. It was still relatively easy, but I don’t want to overdo it an hurt myself. I don’t have a weight bench, so the flies and bench presses don’t have the full range of motion that they should. At some point I may get a cheap bench, especially if I increase the weight.
