Lesson #52 - Husbands Are A GREAT Source Of Entertainment

**Don't forget to enter my giveaway HERE...or click on the "Get Rewarded" button for other giveaway information!!**

The hubs and I love playing our Wii! We both also need to get our butts in shape! The solution was him purchasing the Wii Fit Plus for me for Christmas. I don't know if any of you have gotten this, but it is great...I mean, like lost 4 pounds in a week, great! Sure you need to cut back on the calorie intake and set up a workout regimine...but it is completely worth the $99 price tag!!

There are a number of workouts, yoga exercises/stretches, aerobics and then the best parts - the games!! One of the more entertaining games is the Hula Hoop "contest". This can be played alone or with multiple players. Like all of the other games, though, your time isn't saved if you are playing the multi-player option. I digress.

So, anyways, I am a huge fan of hula hooping...I mean, it is one of my most memorable childhood past times. When I first tried the game, I didn't score too high...I think it was only 150 points or something. Then it was the man's turn. Wouldn't you know it...he beat me...by DOUBLE!!! I'm sure he would have gotten more points had he not been laughing so hard. Why was he laughing so hard, you ask?? Well, it was because I was laughing at him!!! Laughing so hard that I almost had milk coming out of my nose - had I been drinking milk!*

Never have I ever seen a man so determined to get a high score in hula hooping. The way he was moving his hips was just the best form of entertainment I could have ever asked for! I kept threatening to take a video of the craziness as it was unfolding so that I could post it on this here portion of blog-topia. Well, I was told that wasn't going to happen...and if it did, I would not like the outcome. So, instead of seeing the man rocking out to some hula hooping fun...I found a similar video of another guy getting his groove on!! Enjoy!



*Note: It is NOT a good idea to drink milk during ANY sort of exercise. Water should be your beverage of choice.

Haha, I love the hula hoop game. I ROCK the score, since I have tha moves like Beyonce! ;) (paalease! I wish!) Hubby thinks it's hilarious to watch us all. He doesn't play much on Wii Fit, though. He likes Halo, and that game that you can walk around and steal cars and kill people. The sicko. ;)

Chelle said...

I really need to get one period.

It looks like a fun way to exercise

Joshua said...

Funny that you bring this up. I have the Wii Fit Plus and am super happy that I do. Between January 1 and January 17 I lost 6.4 pounds. I do other stuff, too, but mostly it's the Wii Fit. I actually started a side blog/experiment on the subject (direct link here) January 1. I don't really advertise it, but there it is.

Chloie said...

So funny! And you're right, husband's are the best source of entertainment. My husband is such a funny guy!

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

My kids love the wii fit games. Imagine a 5 year old fat butt doing the hula hoop...

Amy said...

I do not have one of these but a friend does and I got to try it out. It is a lot of fun..

sandy said...

Now that is HILARIOUS! I have to get that! My hubby would be a riot to watch!

I am Trish Marie said...

That alone is worth the purchase.

Samantha said...

I don't think that I would ever stop laughing if I saw my husband doing the hula hoop contest.

Shell said...

I can NOT beat Hubs' score on hula hooping. It drives me crazy.

Annie said...

We dont have a Wii fit...but i think that it would be totally worth the $$ to see my hubs workin his hips like that :)

JennyMac said...

I LOVE Wii and played tennis on it for an hour last night. I love the Wii Fit too (get EA Sports too..its awesome). and the hula hooping story is hysterical only bc I had my Hub and FIL walk in during my Hula Hooping frenzy one day. LOL. Love that you have a video to share. My Hub does not. haha.

Tiffany said...

that video's freaking hilarious. we don't have the wii fit, but the husband was so determined to become a pro in tennis that he played for like, three straight hours. so ridiculous.

Complicated Mama said...

If you think your husband doing hulas on wii fit was funny you should have seen me doing them 8 mo. preggo. lol..

My sister video taped it but Im not sure if she still has it.

Much More Than Mommy said...

I have wanted one of those for FOREVER!! And now I want one even more, because The Husband is super competitive, and I'm sure I can challenge him to a hoop-off, and then I can videotape him and blackmail him with it!!! There are so many good reasons to get a Wii Fit! ;-)

Tina Lane said...

LOL! You killed it with the soundtrack. When it comes to embarrassing the Hub-a-nators it doesn't get much better than that. Well played.

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

bwahahaha!

I love the hula hoop one too.

WhisperingWriter said...

LOL

I am so bad at the hula hoop one. I guess my hips don't move like that...

ModernMom said...

LOL and you know what they say..the couples that laugh at each other stay together ....or something like that!

The Princess of Sarcasm said...

You tell him that the princess is VERY upset that he did not allow you to video him.................

*sniff* *sniff*

I feel like I've been robbed.....

momma23 said...

I had the best laughs watching my hubby learn to do the hula hoop exercise too. BTW, I LOVE the marching one, lots of fun and gets the heart rate going. Happy Wii'ing!

Jesslyn said...

Ok - having seen how funny the guy in the video is... now I totally want to see what your hubby did! :)

My hubby and I have been toying with the idea of getting a Wii Fit, also with the intention that it help us get in shape. Glad to read your review of it.

Cop Mama said...

Ha ha ha, thanks for sharing the clip. If that was my DH, I would be laughing my rear off!

Queenie Jeannie said...

We got Wii Fit when it first came out, in fact we got the Wii JUST BECAUSE of the Wii Fit, lol!!! We just got the Wii Fit Plus before Christmas and have been using nearly every day!! We all love it!

Annie said...

haha, did someone had milk coming out of their nose from laughing so hard?! ;)

i'm so bummed we sold our wii before wii fit came out :( i miss out wii and i want a wii fit, NOW!! ;)
the vid is too funny, i'm sure watching you hubs do the same thing was hilarious to say the least.

Ruby Red Slippers said...

Too funny!
I have my Wii fit (love it-), and recently got the Plus-Love it!
I like the game where you bump numbers into adding to ten...lets just say my Third grader is better than I am!!!
I love the Yoga, and the stepping thing-

Aunt Becky said...

I'm kinda afraid that it's gonna make my avatar all fat. And then I'll cry.

TDM Wendy said...
