I wonder if the Wii has an attachment for that…

So this morning I broke out the Wii Fit Plus and did, according to its calculations, 20 minutes of working out. How many calories did I burn?


Oh, come on. My breakfast yogurt is 100 calories. Please. And that 20 minutes included the Basic Step (which I don’t seem to have the coordination for), boxing, island cycling, and running along to the Pussycat Dolls.

They say the average calorie burn for thirty minutes of sex, including an orgasm, is 200 calories.

I’m totally doing the wrong workout.

    Store the Wii & give Mr. S a call. 108 is not worth pulling it out.

    I know! 108 calories? I was even sweaty!

    I could have just had two cookies instead of four. :lol:

    I’m a little slow here, but are you asking if the Wii has an attachment for you to have sex (including orgasm)? I’ll bet THAT one would be a big seller.

    And, Annmarie, that comment about Mr. S. and pulling it out was very funny, even though I know the it you were talking about was the Wii and not Mr. S.

    Well, the Wii has golf club attachments and tennis rackets and steering wheels and you name it. I’m sure they could manage something a little more…intimately interactive.

    (I’m totally joking. My kids play with that Wii. And Mario’s not my type.)

    The pulling out made me giggle, too.

    Dayum, I’m slow… I was having an eyes out of socket moment there.

    Um, yeah skip the basic step, I’ll have to see what I do is called, basically it’s the free step or something and I mute volume and listen the ipod and go at your own pace. Works better and I sweat buckets doing that one.
