Have Your Cake and Eat It Too!


Hubby and I have a love-hate relationship with Ava, the stern taskmaster on our new Your Shape Wii. She barks out orders and tells us when our legs or arms are out of position. I often hear hubby cursing her. Along with orders, she dispenses health tips. One of her recent tips was to remove the icing (frosting) from a piece of cake and discard. This will mean fewer calories consumed.

Now I don’t know about you, but I think the icing is the best part of a cake. It’s the bit I enjoy most of all. I savor each mouthful. The thought of lopping it off and throwing it away… It’s just plain wrong! I doubt I could bring myself to do it. I think I’d rather forego the entire piece of cake. That would be less painful for me.

My favorite cake is carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Yum! There is no way I would part with either the cake or the icing.

Do you agree with Ava or do you side with me? For those of you who enjoy the odd slice of cake, which sort is your favorite?

Fidgeting: It’s Good News

Most of the Wii Fitness games–Wii Fit, Wii Fit Plus, Active and Your Shape include fitness tips. One of the tips on Your Shape mentioned Fidgeting. Fidgeting is when a person is uneasy or restless and they move their limbs in a nervous manner.

Did you know fidgeting is good? If you’re a fidgeter, you use up to 700 calories per day. I’m not usually a fidgeter, but I think I might change my ways.

Do you fidget?
