So, I am officially addicted to Aldi. It’s been looming for some time, but was made official when I told The Other Half that we must stop at Aldi yesterday. The Other Half asked “Why do you need to go to Aldi?” and I replied “I don’t know, I just do, ok?”
For some weeks now we have been waiting for the price to drop on an exercise bike that we spotted there – hoping that it would go down to a clearance price as things leftover often do. This week, the bike that formerly was $299 was now.. wait for it.. drumroll.. $199. Bargain! So we bought it. And here’s a picture of it all assembled, which took some time – but first a pic of the “kitty supervisor” who was watching The Other Half put the bike together..
She totally thinks she is a human, with her arms up on the armchair like a human. :) But then there are times she thinks she’s a dog and fetches stuff, too.
So, I plan to combine the exercise bike 3 days a week with wii fit step aerobics 3 days a week and have one day off a week. Much of this is in order to get fit for kayaking this summer.
Wii Fit can be brilliant, but it also can do a bit of damage – because I have such major problems with my middle ear I can’t do the balance games and the first time I tried them I pulled all kinds of muscles. Then I hurt myself with the hula hoop – it throws you more hula hoops, but you have to lean left and right to catch them and no matter how much I lean the Wii Fit doesn’t think I am leaning. That day of Wii Fit left me in major back pain.
I think it is safest if I stick to the exercise I can do – riding the exercise bike, step, some of the muscle stuff, and sometimes Yoga. Frankly I’d rather be unfit than in pain from pulling muscles. I’m not a fan of Yoga but I also haven’t given it much of a chance yet.
