Wii Fit is in the house!

It was released this morning and I went and picked up my preorder right at 10 am when GameStop opened. It does a few tests and tells you your WiiFit age. Mine was 43 at first, but after testing again was only 37 (I'm 34, so that's not too bad). My BMI was right in the middle of the normal range, so that made me feel pretty good. Even better, it weighed me in at about 8 lbs. less than our scale, so I think I'll listen to the balance board instead of the scale. :) It lets you set weight loss goals or maintenance goals and tells you how you are doing and the other characters even cheer you on. Check this out if you have no idea what I am talking about...

I think this game is definitely a keeper!

I just go promoted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kyle here! So what better way to end my work day than to get a call from ADMIRAL PITTMAN congratulating me on my promotion to Lieutenant Commander. WAHOO!!! It feels pretty good...working so hard toward a goal and achieving it. One of my hardest goals was losing 20 lbs. to meet the height/weight requirements. I'm keeping it off too! I love the Corps. I enjoy my job and the constant challenges that make me grow into a better pharmacist, husband, and father every day. Promotion comes with a nice pay raise too :)

'Til my next post whenever that may be.

The house was quiet yesterday

No messes from Johnny. Of course, that's because he was asleep all day and had a fever of over 104. It started Monday night and was 24 hours of feeling miserable, but gratefully there were no other symptoms. This morning we woke up to Johnny in bed next to me and he felt just fine. He only gets in my bed when he is sick...which then makes my day worse because I can't sleep with him there.

Anyway, today he was up an running around and back to himself. It's funny that when he is active, I can get so frustrated, but when he is sick, I miss his energy and personality. I guess it just goes to show that we do need the bad to help us appreciate our blessings.
