Happy New Year!

Hope everyone had a great time ringing in the new year. I decided to ring it in with a stomach virus. Hence, the long time between posts. yeah me. OK, we did actually ring it in at the Mountaineer Casino Celebration first and THEN....
Today I feel much better and am ready to start the new year off right with the old standard resolution of losing weight and getting healthier. I have enjoyed the Wii Fit we got for Christmas and am planning on using it quite frequently. Hey I did lose 5 pounds already just being sick so I am off to a good start. Sort of.
The kids really like the Wii also. Even LB whom I wasn't sure about. It's nice because we all get active with this, so this may be a resolution for the whole family to get healthier this year. BB got the Smackdown vs.Raw 2009, and on the Wii you actually have to move to get your character to do certain moves. So BB has been burning a few calories with that. LB loves the Outdoor Challenge game which involves some running, jumping, balancing, and all kinds of movement. That should help out his little muffin top. Hubby is already healthy anyway because he is extremely good at staying committed to being fit. But I think he enjoys it too.
So here's a toast to the new year and newer health.

Hey Dumbledork, what was that about toast again? :)

I did the new years stomach flu thing 3-4 years ago. Made plans we were going out for the night had it all set up, then was in bed for a day and a half.

Nothing like hollering, Happy New Year! into the toilet it has such a interesting echo.
