My NIKE me.

<-----------------------Check her out! FYI. I did not make up Fatty McButterpants. Kevin James did. However, I follow the adage...if the pants fit, wear them. ETA: I figured out how to start my Nike+ over. And away we go!

ETA Part Two: After the whole pajama pants incident, I decided it was time to get healthy...both from a food perspective (so I am back on WeightWatchers) and a fitness perspective. The Nike+ is a contraption that is a transmitter that goes in my shoes, that sends info about distance, pace, etc. to my iPod. (You can get them at most sporting good stores, or the website for 29.00) My NIKE me is my online running alter ego that is supposed to help motivate me. So far, I just like changing her clothes and skin color.

So you have already done 28 workouts? How is that possible?

Warrne is giving Steamboat a bath, then we will have story and bed then Warren and I are going to eat.


I can not possibly do any more of mom. I am so done.

Good luck on your new fitness plan! I love that little dancing fitness icon.

So can you use the Nike+ with any shoe or just Nikes? I will google it, but I think that is pretty cool. Very motivating. And how fun is it to create your own little avatar person thingie?

You can buy a pouch online that you can tie to your shoes if you don't want the Nike shoes. If you buy one of the pouches, sew it closed so the transmitter doesn't fall out.

It was pretty fun making the avatar. I am curious to see if she helps me stay on track.

Oh, and by the by...I deleted my own comment because I used my kid's name, which is pretty uniquely spelled...

Question: I went to the website you linked to, and they were talking about iPod Nano. Will it work with any other iPod?

Also, I'm not a runner. Only thing I'll run for is the bus. Will this thing work if I want to walk with it? Like, count my steps?
