Minnesota in Winter

I've been away in Minnesota for the last couple of weeks. It was really cold. I'm talking about 20 degrees below zero coupled with 20+ mile per hour winds driving painful ice crystals into your face. We didn't go outside much. Luckily, we have Wii Fit now.

The balance board is much sassier than I could ever have imagined. It routinely asks me if Darcy has a. Gained weight, b. Lost Weight, c. Gotten More Toned, or d. Stayed the same. I've exercised every day for two weeks, which is more days in a row that I've done so since high school. According to the Wii, I'm supposed to lose 20 pounds and I'm frightfully close to being overweight. Maybe that's because the Wii assumes I'm a Japanese businessman. So far I think I've lost about half a pound.

Maybe it's because while I was doing all this exercise, the only other forms of activity I engaged in was drinking beer that comes in a can like this:

also lots of Hamms and my favorite midwest brewer Leinenkugel, and eating tons of delicious home cooked food. We had crown-pork roast, leg of lamb, grilled romaine salad, and lots of other delicious eats.

Oh, and went out on the town one night where I scored six hunter heroes on an Antelope trek in Big Buck hunter pro. I don't think they play very much in the bar I went to, because I'm not that good.
