I Am Zero

I am blogging from my IPhone this morning. Yesterday we went and picked up this little number.(Wii)
I was sceptic on it's accuracy. It is darn close. So close it was dead on.
The body bug and the Wii are almost right on with each other in numbers. So I went back and adjusted by body bug a little.
It ask you questions, does this balance test. I knew my balance has been off,I can tell when I ride my bike. I favor my right leg.
So here are the numbers that my Wii gave me yesterday. My BMI is 31.25. That's great! Yes it's still obese for me, but looking back I had started out at a BMI of 38.3 and the gym did a measurements last year, my BMI was 32.1.
My weight is by the Wii is 199. That means I am -1. SWEET!!
I have been working really hard on the body bug program and my goal is a pound a week.
I stayed on the Wii for an hour yesterday. I will be back on it here shortly. It told me I need to burn calories with aerobic, and work on my balance, and something else.
I have only ran 2.0 miles this week. I know!!! I know!! I am going to get out the door and do 4 miler today no matter how hot it is, or how long it's going to take.
I have some new found steam and reason to get out the door. What is it Rae?? First I am doing this for me. I love running. Why?? I am not quite sure why, I may have that answer later. I like the way I feel after I am done. I do not care what I look like to other people. I am out there doing it. I am going to sweat like crazy, smell like a wookie, maybe sore and tried but I DID IT. And no one on this planet E-arth will ever be able to take that away from me.
I was able to speak to a couple Team Voicers last night. It was great! Thanks so much Matt and Jeff. Jeff pop on first and then Matt.
It fueled the fire to keep going. It gave me some strength to want to keep going. And I realized after talking with them why I push so hard to keep Team Voice alive. Why? Because we all love Disney. Our main number one common ground, "get it" friends. Second we all together choose to do these races,no matter what our level of running or walking is, share our highs and lows. Specially those days when you get mad and training went wrong from the moment you started and you get in and go "why am I doing this?" "I am going to throw in the towel I am done"," I quit". We all have done it. I have I know I did earlier this year. Then you get a text or an e mail and it's one of your online virtual team mates asking," How are you?"" How did today go? "
That is the point you realize other people are also counting on you no matter how bad your training run/walk was. Your teammates want to know you did it no matter how long it took, and they help you see what, where things went wrong and learn from it.

So I am back starting at Zero going to do this and do it right so maybe I can inspire you to come and be apart of the best virtual running Team/ Club.

It's great that you can realize how far you've already come, while still grabbing the bull by the horns to push forward.

0? sounds like your -1! I should have looked at my home computer, didn't realize y'all were on-line. I was on my work computer..workin'.... Lorraine had her friends over so I was just hanging out.

BMI down is awesome! Great job on that!

Hi! It's April from! I responded to your post and I've come to check out your blog. It sounds like you're doing wonderfully! I love your outlook on running. That's my goal, to be able to go out on the open road and just start running. I'll get there eventually, but I have a long way to go. Good for you for blogging your experiences to keep your motivation up! Motivation is key!
