Nerd! Nerd! Nerd!

e3_nike_kinect_01

Santa brought me Nike+ Kinect Training for Christmas, and this morning, I completed the fitness assessment and tackled my first strength and cardio workouts. It was fun! And an awesome reminder that once a nerd, always a nerd.

Yes, I was Melicious, #11, a blocker and pivot for the Hotrod Honeys of the Texas Rollergirls

And I’ve done Fight Gone Bad enough times to make legendary sweat angels…

I’ve learned to love running sprints (and the feeling of euphoria afterward)…

And I’ve even seen my dreams of being a working author come true…

But this morning, despite my best efforts, I was hit by almost every ball in the Nike+ Kinect dodgeball drill.

    Missing your recipes but loving hearing from you!-Are you not going to share some of your Whole30 recipes you are eating?

    Miss that and keep up the good work!-

      I’m not posting my food logs this time because (1) they’re remarkably similar to when I did a Whole30 in October and (2) I’m eating a lot of new recipes that I’m testing for my next cookbook and they’re not ready to share yet.

      But I *did* post two new recipes last week, so gobble those up!

    Fight gone bad looks really….bad… Fun /awesome/bad, but still scary. Unrelated: I made morroccan dipping sauce today & I am now an addict. That. Was. The. Best. Ever.

    I’ll be interested to hear how the Kinect trainer goes for you. I know a lot of those are you get out what you put in but it would be interesting to read a follow up after you’ve played around with it for a while.
