Wii, Eating Healthy and Other Random Topics

My right arm is currently throbbing just a little from a particularly rousing laser fight with my husband on Wii. At first, he was kicking my rear, but by the end of the match, I dominated, as is my birthright. We just got the wii yesterday, and so far, it's a lot of fun! It's not quite as addicting as I thought it would be, but that turns out to be a good thing, as I have about 7% of a normal person's willpower.

In other news - I am try try trying to eat healthier in preparation for bathing suit season...er...summer. :) Seeing as how I can rarely motivate myself enough to get to the gym more often than once every 6 to 8 days, I figure my only chance at fitting in to last summer's clothes is to eat like a rabbit. Breakfast was 0% fat greek yogurt topped with fresh mango, blueberries and almonds (YUM - if only all healthy food was this delicious - pictured below, just before I ate it all up), and lunch was a delicious Quinoa salad with lemon, cucumber, olive oil and other such delicious roughage. Anyone have a favorite healthy recipe???

Also, I promised to share the name and location of the ONLY current place you can buy BookWormz retail .... drumroll please....... Gallimaufry Gallery!!!! If you're a Chicago dweller, or if you're visiting our fair city (we have the peeps from the Olympic Committee here this weekend deciding whether or not we'll be the hosts of the 2016 Olympics - Oprah is said to be helping entertain them. If that doesn't get them, WHAT WILL??), you can find the Gallimaufry Gallery at 4712 N Lincoln Ave in Chicago. Go check it out - they feature all hand made and fair trade products! Pretty cool shop!

Ok, don't forget to link me up to your fav. healthy recipe!

I got a Wii for my birthday in October. We love to play American Idol, bowling, and golf. Wii Fit is great too.

"Santa" brought us a Wii for Xmas and we love it! I have a 6 year old and 2 year old and I think mommy and daddy have more fun them they do, lol. Though I think once our 2 year old is a bit older he will have a blast with it - he has to hold his own controller now and he copies the motions that we make as we play. It's so cute! I have Wii Fit, but haven't had much of a chance to use it.
Good for you for getting into the healthy eating mode!!!

I am reading "Playing for Pizza" by John Grisham (and my BookWormz bookmark looks so cute in it BTW) If I ever finish reading it- it will be the next book I pass along. I have given away 3 this year already.

A friend has a vid that was sent to him which was filmed with an iPhone. He can't get it to open on his pc. What media player does he need? And can the vid be hosted on YouTube?
