Life Was Fat

Back in the day there was an ad that aired right about now  It was for a woman's health club and here's what they said:

"Ohh, the holidays were wonderful. All the parties, all the food, all the wine and beer. Life was fat, and so are you!" Well, I asked for and got a Wii Fit for Christmas. With extreme nervousness, I stepped onto the balance board and was weighed and then did a few balance exercises. The good news is, I'm not overweight. The bad news is, physically, I'm fifteen years older than I really am.  YIKES. I knew my balance was bad. When I was riding four days a week my balance was perfect, but now.... So I have my work cut out for me. I'll keep you posted. Hopefully, I can be back soon at fifty and not sixty five. Sigh.

Now for the good news. I managed to get three new clients at the New Years Eve party I attended. So life is pretty good. We've managed to dodge all the bad weather.  My deer are fine, Roxy foxy is fine and Miss Kitt is pregnant and doing well. I'm looking forward to 2011. Let's here it for the new year.


  1. Interesting that the Wii Fit can tell you that. So going to social activities is one way to get clients. Good to know. I'm probably going to head over to the animal shelter this week to apply as a volunteer and get more practice with the pet photography.

  2. My girlfriend tells me that her Wii fit talks to her saying stuff like- "You're cheating aren't you." Yikes is right!
    You know even if I don't ride for a week or two my balance is affected! Luckily you can do your Wii in the rain - indoors! With a scotch and water in your hand...
    Hahah! just kidding. I know you like Vodka better ( do you?)
    Nice to have new clients !

  3. Hey enjoy the Wii !

    I don't have one - have a PS3 with the motion deal - its really fun.

  4. Well guys, I'm determined to fix this and yes it talks to you. New Years night I scarfed down all of the coconut cake and peppermint ice cream. Trust me, it had a lot to say. I am going to be balanced by this spring so that I can ride again. I joined weight watchers and now I know what hunger feels like. Stay tuned.

    All of you baby photographers, you have to take the shots that they love that you're not paid for in order to take the shots that you are paid for. That probably doesn't make a lot of sence. Go in there and take everything. Get a reputation. You will be paid eventually. Trust me, it works.

  5. I know nothing about Wii Fit, but it talkes to you?? And calls you names?? I'm not sure what to think about that but I guess if it helps you with your balance I could probably use one since I am sixty something and needing more core strength.
