If you're a regular reader, you'll know I've had my fair share of drama at our ridiculously overpriced gym. There was the incident with the creepy kickboxing instructor and then there are all those crazy characters to deal with and dear lord, let's not forget that excruciatingly embarrassing incident in Pilates class back in the spring. It's enough to make me never want to go back!
What's a girl to do? I could just stop going and sit on my couch eating Candy Cane Jo Jo's instead, but that might not be very healthy. Or I could just go running for all of my workouts but that's b-o-r-i-n-g and besides, after all those years of running competitively, I promised myself some variety in my workouts.
And that, my friends, is where the Wii comes in. Jon and I enjoy playing our Wii Sports games together when we can't muster the will to go to the gym, but frankly, I'm getting tired of whooping up on him in Wii Bowling and I'm boring him to tears with my lack of Wii Tennis skills. We've been wanting to get our hands on the Wii Fit, but do you realize how hard it is to find one of those things in stores? It's near impossible! I think the Nintendo gods must have heard my silent pleas because I was selected to be a Brand Advocate for the Nintendo Wii Fit!
What does this mean for me? It means that I'm hosting a Wii Fit party next Monday for some of my friends and other DC area bloggers! There'll be wine and snacks and lovely ladies to show us all of the cool and wonderful things the Wii Fit has to offer us girls. Don't worry, I will definitely post pictures of the party because it's sure to be a fun time.
What does this mean for you all? It means that I'm giving away a Wii console and Wii Fit with balance board on this blog thanks to the kind folks at Nintendo just in time for the holidays! Sweet! We can all get in shape together for the New Year! Would you like to be the recipient of that shiny new Wii and Wii Fit?
Well, here's what you have to do:
1. Leave a comment on this post telling me how the Wii Fit would impact your life. Would you use it to lose weight and to track your weight loss? To gain flexibility? To reconnect in a fun way with your kids? To gain bragging rights over who can hold a yoga pose the longest? Tell me! Make sure you use a valid e-mail address so that I can get in touch with you if you're the lucky winner.

It's that simple! I will be accepting comments until midnight EST on Friday, December 5th. The winner will be drawn randomly and announced on Monday, December 8th and one prize (consisting of a Wii console and Wii Fit game and balance board) will be shipped by Nintendo within 2 weeks.
That's it! Now get commenting and let's hear how you would use it! Don't forget to spread the word about the contest.
This will be me soon, the latest internet sensation:
And this will be Jon, champion of downhill skiiing:
