Squats, Squats & More Squats

Todays theme was Sports Drills. I went in thinking this can’t be too bad until I saw the list of exercises that I would have to complete today. (Apparently I have not learned from the other 10 workouts that EA Sports Active for the Wii is full of trickery and deceit!) I ended up doing TONS and TONS of squats. TONS I tell you!  We also worked out the arms with some boxing and tennis, and they threw in some baseball  for a little variety. (which I liked because the catching and throwing is helping me to whittle away my expansive middle.)
