Competition with my mommy :)
Monday, May 02, 2011
For a while now, my mom and I have kinda sorta been in an unofficial weight loss competition with each other. But today, we made it official.
At about nine this morning, my mom and I went on an hour and a half long walk through the conservation lands near my moms house. Up and down hills, stepping over branches and rocks. We even stopped to to do lunges and hardcore step-ups on rocks. It was pretty fun. When we got back to her house, we sat down and talked about a plan. We both weighed ourselves on her scale.
We will weigh in on the last day of each month. Whoever loses the most weight in that month will get the following from the loser:
May- $2 per pound lost, plus a healthy lunch out
June- $2 per pound lost, plus a $30 outfit
July- $2 per pound lost, plus a pedicure
August and September- $2 per pound lost, plus something else we will figure out later
Also, both of us have 137lbs as a goal. So whoever gets to 137 first gets $100 from the other, but if one of us get there before September 30th, we get $150. Yeah, money might not be the right motivator or "reward" but I sure as hell don't want to give my mom money, so I know I will work my ass off to win this.
I will keep you guys posted :)
