Ahem! You CAN Overdo Wii Fit!
My right arm has been the size of a grapefruit from shoulder to wrist for about three days and it was bruised until this morning where the flab flapped against my body every time I played too many games of tennis, bowling, and golf. So pay attention when the little Wii Mii suggests that you take a break or give it up for the day, will ya?
It doesn't hurt at all, but I feel like a fool! It's beginning to resolve now, so thought I'd report it to y'all "after the fact."
I have still been walking twice daily but I'm "off" the arm-swinging game-playing until my arm returns to its normal size, unless I decide to try it left-handed at some point.
I'm laughing at myself for being such a goofball and overdoing my exercising -- but it truly is so much fun that I didn't even know I had a problem until I stopped and found it hard to bend my elbow because of all the fluid build-up under my skin! I knew my upper arm muscles were getting sore and tired, but that's the only indication I had that I was being a nutcase... well, that and the little Wii Mii warnings that I should take a break... which I ignored.
Ah me... Live and learn. I will read the little promptings and obey from now on.
But I've lost seven pounds in nine days!
So... that's a good thing!
That's all for now. Just thought I'd check in and tell you about my numb-skull behavior so you don't do the same thing when you get one! I'm all for learning this way rather than by "do it yourself"!
