EA Active Day Three

I bought EA Sports Active this past Sunday and began using it that night. At first I was going to start out on the medium intensity, but then thought maybe I should try the easy first; you know, for a warm up kind of thing.

OH MY GOD.

The easy workout makes you sweat! The next day I decided I should buy some workout clothes.

The difference, to me, between Wii Fit and EA Active is how with Active you go from one activity to the other, whereas with Fit you pick and choose what you want to do which detracts from the overall effect of the workout. It also allows the user to go easy on themselves. Lord knows left to my devices I would not have chosen to do three running drills in one session.

Tomorrow will be my day of rest (today should have been, but I didn’t feel like it) and I think I’ll pop in Wii Fit and do some yoga. See, Fit does have some benefits over Active, namely the yoga, balance games, and weight/BMI measuring.

The next part of my plan is to buy some fruit and force myself to eat it everyday. I like fruit, and I like water, I just can’t seem to eat it as much as I should.

A Dog’s Quality of Life

Three weeks ago my mother had to take her pekingese, Maxwell, to the emergency vet because both of his back legs gave out. It turns out he has arthritis and was using one leg more than the other to try and alleviate pain, but now both were having issues.

A day or a couple of days later she calls me in tears because her vet told her Maxwell will not be getting any better and she might have to put him down, due to quality of life and finances. I ended up calling the vet and paying the bill for that day.

She took him to the vet this past Tuesday with me in tow, and although Maxwell has improved a lot, I fear that at some point his health issues, whether it’s his leg/back problems or his kidney stones, will eventually lead to us having to put him to sleep.
