Chloe was a sight to behold this morning. This is a child who has absolutely no interest in sports (a fact that leaves us in no doubt as to her parentage, by the way). And yet, miracle of miracles, she spent two hours experimenting with at least ten different Wii Fit activities. Jogging. Juggling. Yoga. Various balancing games. Skateboarding.
Most shocking revelation of all? Her favorite program was the running course. Let’s face it. She does not possess the grace of a gazelle. And she can’t run in place. But she was having fun. And it was fun to watch her have fun.
In the end, she burned off close to 200 calories. OK – so it wasn’t a “Biggest Loser”-style workout. It was, however, a million times more enjoyable.
