Your Shape

I bought my hubby Your Shape for Xbox Kinect for Christmas.  I finally got around to using it this weekend.  (because, you know, I buy him presents that *I* want to play with!) 

Holy.  Crap. 

First off, this game is amazing.  Creepy how far we've come from old school Nintendo.  This game measures your body for you.  It tells you how long your legs and arms are, where your joints are, how you stand, etc.  Then it takes your picture for your profile.  Then you do a fitness test, and it takes that score, and plans exercises for you based on that.  Yeah, all mine were squat based.  I hate squats. LOL  I was feeling ok on Saturday evening after I played.  A bit sore, but that "yeah, I just worked out" sore.  Sunday I thought I was going to die.  My thighs, hips, and butt hurt SO BAD.  It hurts to go from standing to sitting.  It hurts to go from sitting to standing.  It hurts to walk.  It hurts to breathe. 

So what did I do?  I went and played volleyball!  Actually while I was playing my muscles did loosen up quite a bit.  I've learned that all my serving power comes from my hips though.  I couldn't hit that stupid ball over the net to save my life.  We won both games though, so there's that.

Anyway, moral of the story is, if you have an Xbox and Kinect, go buy this game.  Right now.  It's fabulous and will absolutely kick your butt.
