Into the Wii Hours Of The Night

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on December 28, 2008

Hey there!

Sorry about the late posting- our power has been out this morning! We are getting crazy winds over 100km/hr here today. Almost all of our lovely snow is gone too because it rained all yesterday!

Well last night turned into quite a random night!

We finally arrived back home around 5:30pm. It was a long drive home about 4 hours again.

I made the mistake of trying to run after eating dinner! Now I know why I always workout in the morning. Whenever I try to workout at night I always get cramps from food. I didn’t have enough time to let it digest and I could barely run 1 mile.

My short workout:

  • 0.10 mile warm up walking
  • 6.0 mph 1-mile run incline 6% for 1st half mile, then incline 3%
  • 0.10 walking cooldown, incline 3%
  • Total time: 12-13 mins.

It was a total bust! They all can’t be great workouts I guess. :D


After that Eric and I finally exchanged gifts! We hadn’t had time to exchange them since we got home from our trip out west. I got some great gifts!


An Obusforme back support system (I have a sore back from sitting at the PC all day)


New blister proof Wright socks!


A USB port/clock/tea cup warmer all in one: :D And a spa package (consists of three 30 min visits)

A new chair!!! My old chair was so crappy and hurt my back. This one is a beaut.


And Eric got….a cheeky card :D


A Mastercraft Sliding Compound 10″ Mitre Saw (Sketchie included)


And a Mastercraft Pry and Wrecking Set (for demolition- crow bars etc). He loved it!


After showering, our friend Jesse came over and we decided to play some Wii.

I had two of these bad boys, and I am sad to say I was feeling the buzz! I don’t drink much anymore. lol. :D The beer gave me super ninja Wii fighting powers. I kicked their butt at boxing and tennis.

Sketchie was enthralled with the wires on the Nunchuck and remote. :D

We had competitions for shots as well…We did speed skating and the loser did a shot of Jamacian Rum. Luckily I did everything in my power to not come in last! Man my arms got a great workout last night! Poor Jesse had to do it..

The bad part? The beer let my guard down and I had a ton of Christmas treats!!!!


I think I had about 6 shortbread cookies, 1 PB & Chocolate cookie, countless chocolate balls, etc. Eek!! Any chance they were negated through calories burned from playing Wii?

We were having so much fun we stayed up til about 4:30am playing Wii! It was intense!!!! I am quite tired today.

On today’s agenda:

  • 5-6 mile run
  • Read Marathon book :)
  • Clean up
  • Laundry, organizing office, etc
  • Groceries
  • Do recap on blog of my exercise goals over the holiday week
  • Sign up for charity for half-marathon
  • Blog!


Another quote from “Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide

“I was approached by an Australian runner who announced, “This is the first time I have ever beat you.” I felt obliged to correct him, “You didn’t beat me, you merely finished in front of me.” He stammered an apology, but he had missed what I believed to be the point of the marathon. In a marathon, you don’t beat others as you might in a 100-metre dash. Instead, you achieve a personal victory. If others finish in front or behind you, it is only that their personal victories are more of less than yours. A person finishing behind you with less talent, or a different age or sex, or various other factors, may have achieved a far greater victory. And if the person’s main goal in running the marathon was to raise money for charity, the amount of money collected may be a more important barometre of success than finishing time.”

This. book. is. so good. I am already on chapter 5!

See you later! :D Have a great healthy & happy day!!!
